Warranties can be confusing and some of them are filled with language designed to protect the manufacturer. When you are hiring a roofing company in Oklahoma City, you want to ensure that the company provides you with a solid warranty. Here’s what you need to know about roofing warranties.
An experienced roofer who is truly qualified will offer a warranty on the work. This warranty can last between one and five years and provides you something to fall back on should you find water stains on ceiling because the roofer did a poor job. Be wary of workmanship warranties that are for longer periods than five years. Most companies offering these extensive warranties tend to change their names every few years, making the warranty null and void.
The shingles themselves will come with a warranty. This warranty guarantees that they will not fail and allow water to enter your home for a period of 20 to 50 years, depending on the material chosen and the manufacturer. However, most manufacturers have fine print in the warranty voiding it if the shingles are not installed by qualified professionals. The best way to ensure that your warrant remains intact is to hire Oklahoma City roofers who are highly experienced and professional. It is also important to note that the product warranty is only on the product itself, and the cost of the labor to have the new product installed will not usually be covered.
The Roofing System
Contractors that are individually approved by the roofing company can offer these extensive warranties. While the manufacturer will warranty defective shingles, the roofing system warranty will also cover the cost of actually making the repair. A quality roofer should offer this service for a very reasonable price.
The rarest of warranties, the full-coverage warranty includes the Roofing System warranty as well as more extensive workmanship warranties. Your roof will be fully protected from any defects for a full 50 years and can be protected against installation flaws for 25 years. In the event that you sell your home the warranty can be transferred to the buyer.
