Have you ever taken a look at your roof’s warranty coverage? You most likely haven’t if you didn’t need to call for roof repairs. This could lead to you overestimating your warranty’s coverage and putting yourself in a pinch. In today’s post, South Point Construction discusses details you need to know about your roof’s warranty.
Verify Requirements and Credentials
The warranty stipulations are there to ensure that the contractors working on your home are properly registered and certified. Once you have chosen a roofer to work with, we recommend that you cross-check their qualifications and credentials. This will help you gain peace of mind knowing you are working with a legitimate contractor. You must also ensure that the warranty is coming directly from the manufacturer, and not the contractor. You should only make payments after the inspection is complete and you’ve come to a mutual agreement with your contractor.
Look Into The Details
Your roof is an important investment as it is your home’s first line of defense against the elements. Usually, roofs come with warranties to make you feel secure and protected. You should fully understand the cases that their warranty covers to get the most out of it. Normally, a typical roof warranty covers leak repairs caused by factory defects or faulty installation from roofing contractors. Cases that warranties don’t cover include damage from extreme weather and damage from poor roof maintenance. One clause even stipulates that if a roofing component exceeds its shelf life upon installation, the warranty wouldn’t cover it even if it’s approved by the contractor. This all goes to show how important it is to know the full details of your warranty coverage.
Don’t Rely Too Much On Your Warranty
Warranties are present to keep you at ease from worrying about repair costs. However, as a homeowner, it’s also your responsibility to have your roof inspections and maintenance done by certified contractors. See to it that you research more about your prospective contractors such as their license, certifications and other reputable organizations to help you decide if they are up to the task.
