3 Benefits of GAF Roofing Warranties

By Stacy Mellete

One of the benefits of buying a GAF roof is enjoying powerful warranty coverage. Although serious issues with GAF products are rare, it’s comforting to know you have a buffer against costly repairs if they fail prematurely.

Any factory-certified residential roofing contractor Tampa, like Affordable Roofing Systems, would say that these are the top benefits of GAF warranties:

Bailing You Out in Case of Manufacturing Defects (and Misapplication)

GAF warranties share one similar feature: the Smart Choice® Protection Period. This special provision provides years of non-prorated protection, covering the entire system during its critical early years.

By hiring a GAF-certified roofing company, you can access stronger levels of warranty coverage, stretching the usual 10-year Smart Choice Protection Period to 50 years.

During this time, GAF would pay for the reasonable cost of labor to repair defective components, and provide the necessary replacement materials.

With the Silver Pledge™ or Golden Pledge® Limited Warranty, GAF would also protect you against product misapplication errors.

Even if your installer goes out of business, in the case of any workmanship problem, GAF itself would shoulder the accountability.

Making Tear-Off and Disposal Costs Reimbursable

Hire a Master Elite™ roofer and you can forget about tear-off and disposal costs. In addition to residential roof repairs, the Silver Pledge and Golden Pledge limited warranties consider these expenses reimbursable. Whether the nature of the roofing problem is related to defects in manufacturing or workmanship, GAF will pay for the necessary tear-off and disposal services.

Making You Eligible for a Fourth-Party Roof Evaluation

Protecting your Lifetime Roofing System with the Golden Pledge Limited Warranty can put more eyes on your project. You will become eligible for GAF’s 40-point problem prevention inspection. GAF experts themselves will come to your house to evaluate the work, ensuring the workmanship is consistent with the brand’s high standards.
