Why A Shingle Warranty Can Save Your Home

shingle warranty can save your home

A good warranty can save you a lot of extra money and hassle if there is a defect in your roof or a problem down the road. When looking at contractors and comparing products for your new roof, be sure to include the quality of the warranty in your decision. From time frames and insulation costs to the small add-ons and details, there is a lot to compare, and the right shingle warranty will protect your home for years to come.

1. Provides replacement shingles if there is a defect

Shingle roofing warranties are in place to protect you from costs associated with your roof after a replacement or repair. Having a good warranty means that if there is a defect in the shingles or roofing system, you will receive a repair or replacement. Certain warranties also cover damage from weather.

2. Some warranties cover replacement workmanship

Knowing that you have the backup of a good warrant to replace shingle if needed can ease your worries, but knowing that the labor involved in the repair would be covered as well is much better. Our range of warranties can extend to cover expenses such as re-installation, removal of shingles – and some will even cover disposal costs.

3. Some warranties last 50 years

Warranties vary greatly in the length of time they provide coverage. Lower end shingle warranties may protect your from 3 to 10 years, while better options for roofing systems give 20-50 years of protection. The investment for shingles with a greater warranty can save money down the road, so make to ask how long you will be covered under warranty for.

4. Some warranties cover installation errors

Additionally, some warranties cover problems arising from installation errors, including misapplication of flashing. Not all warranties include this coverage – read your warranty in full to ensure you know all the details.
