The Warranty On Your New Roof

rochester ny rooferFor the most part, there is not much difference between one shingle and the next. Regardless of the manufacturer your roofing contractor chooses, they all get their materials from the same factories and suppliers.

So, how do you chooose? Read on to understand more about the type of roofing warranties offered around Rochester as well as how to choose a reliable, trustworthy contractor.

“Lifetime” Warranties
Every shingle manufacturer says their product is the best. The prices are very close for similar products and the warranties are all the same. The most common manufacturer’s warranty is “lifetime.”  But what exactly does that mean?

The warranty usually specifies that if the shingles fail during the warranty period, the limited warranty covers only the shingles and only if it was caused by a manufacturing problem.

You need to read the warranty carefully to determine how it defines “lifetime.”

They want something to give you a sense of security.

What if You Need To Make a Claim?
Even if you are successful in making a claim under this type of warranty, you will still have the burden of hiring a roofer, getting a permit, disposing of the defective shingles, purchasing any other miscellaneous materials needed for the repair or replacement, and fixing any “consequential” damages.

The Bottom Line…you need to take the time to research a reliable roofer who will take the shingles and apply them correctly.

Proper installation is your best guarantee that your roof will perform as expected.
