Why Roof Warranties are Important

By Stacy Mellete

Home improvement can take considerable time and money, especially if it involves your roof. For this reason, it’s essential to pay attention to every part of your investment.

These include the roof warranty, which plays a large role in protecting both yourself and your new roof system.

In this post, Affordable Roofing Systems cites the importance of having your investment covered with an extensive warranty.

1. Protection from Material Defects
You’ll want your residential roofing contractor in Tampa FL, to provide excellent weather protection and performance. Once it starts displaying some problems, however, it can compromise your home’s comfort and energy efficiency. That’s where manufacturer’s warranty comes in, which includes coverage on defective materials.

This doesn’t technically cover your roof, but rather the materials that comprise it. It offers an extra layer of protection for your new system when your shingles start to wear down or fail long before these should.

2. Insurance Against Sloppy Workmanship
Roof warranties also let you avoid the headaches and additional expenses associated with improper installation. This covers the work your roofer has put in your roofing system, and other labors related to the project.  Most roofing contractors carry a workmanship warranty, which may vary on period coverage — from lifetime to several decades.

Just make sure to read the fine print in your warranty since this can be voided in different situations. These include poor venting; installing antennas and satellite dishes on your roof; pressure washing your shingles; and installing a new roof over the old one.
