Tackling a new roof installation is a great investment. As soon as it gets damaged at any time, you don’t have to shell out thousands of dollars for repairs. That’s where the warranty of your roof comes in. Carney Roofing Company, your local contractor for new roofing construction projects, discusses more in today’s blog post.
What You Need to Know About Your Warranty
A roof warranty often provides coverage from material or workmanship defects. In the event the roofing material used in building the whole system fails early, the manufacturer is responsible for solving the issue. The contractor, meanwhile, shoulders the problem if the roof is damaged due to incorrect installation.
That being said, it is worth noting that warranties vary from one situation to another simply because of the uniqueness of every product and installation. During the sales process, it is important that your single ply roof repair and replacement company discusses to you all the information contained within the warranty. You can also do your own research of the warranties at the manufacturer websites.
Depending on the company that installed the roof and the materials used, a roofing warranty may have a different expiration date. Those coming from the manufacturer offer between 20- and 30-year shingles. However, be sure to clarify what constitutes a “lifetime” warranty. It could mean the terms only cover the roofing material up to a certain number of years.
A roof warranty may be passed on to the next homeowner should you decide to sell your home. It is called a transferable warranty, with most companies only allowing a one-time transfer. In this case, it is important for the homeowner to notify the company that offered the warranty to see if it still fits the transfer window.
