Affordable Roofing: The Importance of a GAF Warranty

By Stacy Mellete

Replacing the roof of your house is going to be one of the biggest home improvement investments you’re going to make at some point. Aside from this project being costly, you have to consider that the roof is a crucial component of your home’s resistance against the elements and overall appeal so it has to be done right.

That is why with a big project like re-roofing, you would definitely want a roofing company that offers a warranty that can protect your investments. We at Affordable Roofing, the leading contractor for roofing in St. Petersburg and the neighboring areas, are proud to say that we are a GAF Master Elite Roofer.

Being a Master Elite Roofer means that we comply with GAF’s stringent requirements including:

  • Being fully licensed and insured through the appropriate state and federal agencies.
  • Continuously educating on GAF’s newest products to remain up-to-date with their current installation standards
  • Consistently getting outstanding reviews from customers through comment cards and client surveys

Aside from these, being a Master Elite contractor means that we offer GAF products covered by GAF system warranties. Though GAF roofing products are made to last, it will certainly still give you peace of mind knowing that GAF products come with a manufacturer’s warranty.

But what makes GAF warranties a cut above the rest? Here are some of the perks of a GAF warranty:

Smart Choice® Protection Period – This is a special provision in a GAF warranty that covers you against material defects during the critical first few years of your new roof. During this period, should you discover that there are defects on the covered components GAF will replace them.

GAF Weather Stopper® System Plus Ltd. Warranty – This warranty covers all material defects for all major GAF components on your roof.

GAF Golden Pledge® Ltd. Warranty – This is a comprehensive warranty that covers not just manufacturer defects, but also problems related to installation. This means that in the Tampa area in Florida, GAF trusts Affordable Roofing workmanship enough to include a contractor’s warranty; with GAF even standing behind our workmanship for 25 years.

So if you want your residential roofing in St. Petersburg and surrounding communities done without you having to worry about faulty installation and products, choose Affordable Roofing. Juts give us a call to get a free estimate for your next roofing project.
