Is My Roof Warranty Transferable?

BLOG-Transfer-Roof-Warranty-01

By working with the best roofing contractor in the Miami and Plantation areas, you do more for yourself than just get a great new roof. You preserve the manufacturer’s warranty for your roof, no small matter. A-1 Property Services is a GAF Master Elite roofing contractor, which means your roofing warranty is one of the strongest in the business. But is it transferable, should you decide to sell your Plantation home?

GAF Golden Pledge Warranty

GAF offers the Golden Pledge Warranty, its highest level of protection, only to roofing contractors who demonstrate:

  • Proper licensing by their state to perform roofing work
  • Adequate insurance for the customer’s protection
  • A proven reputation
  • A commitment to ongoing professional training

A-1 Property Services is certified by GAF to install their products correctly. GAF knows us as a roofing contractor dedicated to superior installation and great customer service. The Golden Pledge Warranty covers shingle roofs for 50 years, including the cost of installation labor. It also covers workmanship for 25 years. The strong warranty protects against wind damage and other costs.

Transferability

GAF’s Golden Pledge Warranty can be transferred free of charge from you, the original owner, to the next homeowner. It remains in force for the life of the warranty. The second owner must write to GAF within 60 days after property transfer for any coverage to be transferred. If the transfer takes place within the first 20 years after original installation, the second owner reaps all the benefits contained in the warranty. If transferred afterwards, the length of this warranty is reduced to two years after ownership changes.

Other Warranties

GAF’s other two levels of warranty are also transferable from the original owner. These come with shorter coverage, so transfer may not provide much use to the second owner. GAF’s basic warranty is only 10 years; its second-best warranty (System Plus) immediately jumps to 50 years, but limits coverage for installation, tear-off and other factors. Both levels of warranty transfer in the same manner as the more robust Golden Pledge warranty.
