What to Look for in a Commercial Roofing Warranty

Apr 15, 2020Roofing

When it comes to your building, it’s crucial to get the roofing system right. Furthermore, for commercial roofs, you should also have an adequate warranty that you can rely on when something goes wrong.

Home Remedy USA, a trusted expert in GAF roof systems, discusses some essential things that you should know about commercial roof warranties.

Warranty Coverage

Ideally, your roofing warranty should cover both materials and workmanship. With this kind of warranty, you don’t have to worry about spending on the replacement or repair of defective materials and workmanship. If your contractor offers a material-only warranty, keep in mind that this can only provide you a patch kit or replacement material.

Contractor vs. Manufacturer-Backed Warranty

Find out if the warranty is backed by the contractor and/or the manufacturer. It’s best to have warranties that are not only provided by the manufacturer, but by your contractor as well. This will save you from so much inconvenience in the event that you need a roof repair or roof replacement due to faulty workmanship or materials. Additionally, make sure that the roofing companies and manufacturers that you work with are established and trustworthy. You’ll have more peace of mind knowing that they will still be around when you need to avail of your roofing warranty.

No Dollar Limit vs. Original Cost vs. Prorated

Make sure you have a good understanding of these three terms. “No Dollar Limit” basically entitles you to the total cost of the repair, regardless of the amount. An original cost warranty only covers repairs amounting to the total purchase value. Lastly, a prorated warranty offers a lower value as your property ages.
