Things To Look for in a Residential Roofing Warranty

By Stacy Mellete

Because most types of roofing work involves a lot of resources, it’s important to have yours covered by a residential roofing warranty should something go wrong with it in the future. However, you also need to see the following things when reviewing the details of your warranty to make sure that it will cover unexpected repairs.


Warranty Coverage

The first thing you need to check is the warranty’s actual coverage. Some warranties cover for the material itself, while others cover for problems related to labor. You’d want your roofing warranty to cover as many of those as possible. If that’s not possible, see if you can get separate warranties to keep everything covered.

Limitations of Warranty

Coverage alone isn’t always enough to keep your roof safe. In some cases a product or service warranty may not apply depending on the issue of the problem. Limitations can vary for both residential roofs and commercial roofing warranties, so it’s important to ask a trusted roofer to help you decide whether you’re getting a warranty that has reasonable limitations.

Duration or Length

Roofing warranties also vary in terms of length, usually depending on the material used during installation. For example, it’s common for asphalt shingles to have warranties of up to 20 years, but experts on roof repairs Tampa say that you should go for offers that last longer than that. This way, you have something to cover for you for most of the roof’s expected lifespan.
