Roof Installation: What’s Covered by the Warranty?

Home > Roofing Installation > Roof Installation: What’s Covered by the Warranty?

Everyone wants to have peace of mind when it comes to a sizeable investment, so it comes as no surprise that when you are planning a roof installation project, you need to understand what the warranty means. Often the difference in price between a “sounds-too-good-to-be-true” quote and a higher one is how much the roofing company stands behind their work. A new company or one in financial trouble because of poor workmanship is unlikely to offer you more than the manufacturer warranty, and that might not be worth as much as you think either.

choosing a roofing material for your roof installation

The most important thing to remember is that choosing a roofing material for your roof installation based on the manufacturer warranty without considering the integrity and workmanship of the installer is a bad idea. If your roof fails and it was directly attributed to a faulty installation, the manufacturer’s warranty will not cover the new materials. They only cover roofing material defects– not roof installation defects. It is important to understand the manufacturer warranty, as they can vary widely. Some cover only the materials, while others will also cover the labor if the materials were defective.
