It’s no exaggeration to say that your roofing system is perhaps the biggest and most important part of your home. It’s the primary structure that provides you with shelter against the elements, and it’s also one of the most expensive components of any house. While your roof protects you from the sun and rain, it’s equally important to protect it from any problem that might jeopardize its performance.
Roofing warranties offer one way to ensure that your brand-new roof replacement is covered in the event of material or installation issues. However, warranties are often conditional. Breaking any of your warranty’s terms could easily void its validity. Here are a few best practices to ensure that you don’t lose the protection of your roofing warranty.
There are two types of warranty coverage for roofing systems. Material warranties are often covered by the manufacturer, the company that made the actual roof products you are using. Material warranties protect you from any potential problems that may be caused by manufacturing issues or defects.
On the other hand, labor warranties are often provided by the contractors that installed your roof. Professional roofers will always ensure the quality of their work; however, there are times when certain issues might pop up during the installation. A labor warranty protects you from these issues. There are also cases when a manufacturer may also cover labor, provided that your roof is installed by their certified contractor.
Prompt Repairs and Maintenance
Warranties may also be voided if you don’t seek out a roofer for repairs as soon as a problem is detected. Additionally, some warranties also presume that you have maintained your roof properly and according to specifications. These conditions may vary from one company to another so talk to your contractor about these details as you plan for a roof installation.
