Robbins Roofing is committed to providing the people of Oklahoma City with quality roofing and affordable prices. We have more than 60 years of combined experience in Oklahoma City and offer three warranties to back up our work.
Roofing warranties can be very confusing, so we have defined the standard warranties in the marketplace below along with warranty packages that you can ONLY get with a company with the strength and integrity that Robbins Roofing possesses.
1. Workmanship Warranty: Roofing contractors that guarantee their installation work, will offer a workmanship warranty. These range anywhere from 1 to 5 years. If a contractor offers a warranty longer than 5yrs, then a “Red Flag” should be raised. These long warranties are normally offered by companies that have no intent on working in that area for any length of time. A Workmanship Warranty covers the quality of the roofing installation. Generally, after your home has experienced 2 to 4 soaking rain events without any roof leaks it’s a good bet that the roof won’t ever leak because of poor installation.
2 Shingle Warranty: This is the warranty that you see on the package and covered by the manufacturer, not the roofing contractor. Up until 2011, the most common shingle warranty was 30-yrs. Most shingle manufacturers have increased their warranties on the 30-yr shingle to a lifetime warranty. BE CAREFUL and makesure that you understand what that warranty on the package means. It may say “Lifetime” on the package, but in most cases the actual coverage falls way short. The best decision that you can make is to go with an extended warranty program…
3. Roofing System Warranty: Only the hand-picked contractors by the shingle manufacturer have the ability to offer these warranties. Extended roofing system warranties vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. As mentioned earlier, shingle warranties fall way short on their warranty coverage. The coverage may only cover defective shingles, depreciate it and then you are left paying the bill for someone to replace them along with the other material needed for the repair. System warranties cover those gaps in coverage for defective material. The warranties are generally offered at any extremely low cost. If your contractor is not offering you a systems warranty, they are doing you a dis-service.
4. Full Coverage Warranty: This is the highest quality protection and covers all aspects of your roof. THIS WARRANTY IS RARE!!! Of the hand-picked contractors mentioned earlier, only the best of those have been chosen to offer these full coverage warranties. Full coverage warranties include the Roofing System Warranty, but they also contain extensive workmanship warranties as well. Imagine your roof fully protected from defects for 50 years and fully protected from installation flaws for 25 years and if you decide to sell your home you can include the warranty as a selling point for the buyer.
