While it’s important to have a proper warranty for your newly installed asphalt shingles, you also need to understand that not all types of roofing damage are covered. As such, you need to check the warranty from your roof system manufacturer to know the conditions of its coverage. To help you understand your roofing warranty, Southern Roofing Company explains what you need to know:
What Does My Roof Warranty Cover?
Typically, your roof warranty should cover leak repairs caused by defective materials or poor workmanship when it was installed. Some exclusions include acts of terrorism, extreme weather, and damage due to lack of maintenance.
Depending on the type of warranty, it will sometimes include certain demands that you may not anticipate. For instance, you might notice an unusual exclusion in the warranty for an off-brand modified bitumen sheet material. Despite having passed its shelf life, the material may still be approved by the manufacturer to be installed, which can cause roof repair problems later on. This is why it’s important to understand the coverage of your roofing warranty.
Strict Roofing Requirements that Ensure a Quality Roof Installation
The stipulations in your warranty ensure that roof maintenance work should always be done by a trusted professional roof contractor. They also provide requirements that contractors should account for when bidding on your project. This covers everything from material thickness to the type of flashing and how it will be installed. It’s important to double-check their licenses/credentials, and that the warranty itself comes straight from the manufacturer.
