Why Are Warranties Important?

A new roof is a big investment, typically involving thousands of your hard-earned dollars and lasting 25, 30, 40 years, or more. As with any big investment, knowing in advance what your warranty covers could save you thousands in the event that problems arise with your roof.  As a GAF approved contractor, and with more than 35 years as a successful roofer on the San Francisco Peninsula, we understand the investment you are making and the confidence you are placing in us to provide you with the best roof for your home.

What Are The Chances Of Having A Problem With My New GAF Roof?
Based on our experience and GAF’s state-of-the-art manufacturing process, the odds of having a problem with a new GAF roof are minuscule. On the other hand, while serious problems with GAF roofing materials are rare, if you were to have a problem, it can be as expensive to fix as your roof originally cost. So while the risk of having a problem is low, the cost if you do have a serious problem can be high.

What About Problems With Installation?
GAF’s studies indicate that more than two-thirds of the problems that people experience with their new roofs are due to the contractor’s workmanship — not the roofing materials. This is an important distinction to keep in mind when deciding on warranty coverage… and when deciding on whom your roofing contractor will be. That’s why it’s wise to choose and experienced roofer like Worrell Roofing & Ventilation.

What Should I Look For In A Roofing Warranty?
Basically, there are two types of coverage that you should ask us about: coverage against manufacturing defects in the materials and coverage against workmanship errors.

Tell Me About Coverage Against Manufacturing Defects.
As far as we know, all manufacturers provide a warranty against manufacturing defects for their roofing products, although your exact coverage will vary depending on the brand. For example, most architectural shingles carry a Lifetime* limited warranty against manufacturing defects, while most 3-tab shingles carry a 20, 25, or 30 year limited warranty against manufacturing defects. Each warranty has its own specific terms and conditions, so it’s important to read each warranty carefully.

The warranty on the other components that make up your roofing system can vary from as little as a few months to Lifetime. While the shingle you choose may have a warranty that lasts for 30 years or even Lifetime, some (or all) of the other components that make up your roof may not—so if they cause a problem with your roof, you may not have the coverage you need. That’s why GAF offers several different warranties that include coverage for your entire GAF roofing system.
