One of the most important things you need to consider when renovating your home is roof replacement. And when considering roof replacement, it pays to be mindful of the warranty. Here are some points you might want to consider when it comes to investing in an ideal roofing warranty.
Depending on the materials, the average cost for a roof improvement ranges from $5,000 to tens of thousands of dollars. Spending a great deal of money on such a renovation is definitely a significant investment. That said, unavoidable problems might still arise. Thus, warranties are guaranteed for exactly this purpose.
Warranties mainly cover materials and installation. However, it varies from time to time as each situation is unique. Your home improvement contractor should be able to provide you with all the essential points about the materials and installation. It is important to have a clear discussion with your contractor as this will reflect the outcome of your roofing needs.
Manufacturer, Installation and Contractor’s Warranties
The manufacturer’s warranty promises that the materials to be used for your roof replacement are not defective. Even so, damaged materials do not usually cause roof failure. As such, it does not protect you from initial signs of roof failure, namely poor installation and maintenance.
On the other hand, the installation and contractor’s warranty offers significantly more protection than the manufacturer’s warranty. The downside to this is that some roofers and contractors tend to provide a limited time on their work, which might cause some problems.
It might be costly, but you might want to ask your contractor for a longer warranty. These extended warranties could be a lot cheaper than roof replacement costs, though. Some contractors provide guarantees for as many as 25 to 40 years, which is a good investment when you consider the expenses of replacing a leaky roof.
Is Everything Covered By Warranty?
Unfortunately, there will be certain things that your warranty might not cover unless you specifically request it. If you live in a city prone to tornadoes, you might want a specific installation style that will best fit where you reside.
