Every single roof installed by a reputable professional should come with a manufacturer warranty. This warranty is provided by the manufacturer of the roofing materials and protects you from unusual defects that could cause issues.
The roof warranty varies based on the manufacturer, but most require you to conduct regular inspections and maintenance for them to remain valid. Some warranties will only include the materials themselves while others will include both the materials and labor. Warranties also vary regarding which defects are covered; yours may include:
Read your warranty carefully as the following issues are less likely to be covered, although they may still be in certain situations:
- Damage due to high winds
- Damage from hail
- Roof puncture damage
Warranties almost never cover the following issues with roofs:
- Standing water and damages from it
- Existing moisture
- “Acts of God,” including wind, hail, floods, tornadoes, fires, etc.
- Improperly completed roof repairs
At Campany Roof Maintenance, we not only provide the repairs covered by your manufacturer warranty, but we can help you make sense of what is included in this coverage. Before completing the repairs, we will ensure you know whether or not your warranty will pay for them so you can be prepared for any out-of-pocket expenses.
When we install a new roof for you, we will also carefully go over the manufacturer’s warranty with you to prevent confusion down the road.
