Getting the Most from Your Glendale Roofing Warranty
A reputable roofing company in Glendale (or anywhere else for that matter) will provide a warranty on the work it performs on your home. The details of the warranty may vary, such as whether it covers the materials provided or the work performed and how long the warranty lasts. To get the most out of your roofing warranty, you need to study these details to know exactly what it covers, whether it’s a warranty for roof repair or re-roofing.
Here are a few things to keep in mind to get the most from your Glendale roofing warranty:
Know What’s Included
To start, you need to know exactly what is included in your roofing warranty. For example, the shingles may be covered, but not the underlayment or the wood structures below it. If the roof repair involved the flashings but not the shingles, perhaps only the flashings are covered under the warranty.
Get a complete list of what components of the roof are covered under the warranty so that you don’t have any unpleasant surprises later.
Know What Voids the Warranty
As with any type of warranty, there are plenty of things you can do to void your roofing warranty. For example, you may be required to get an annual roofing inspection to maintain your warranty. Or you may be required to work only with the company that did the work or with another qualified company.
Find out at the time the re-roofing or other work is performed what things you must avoid that could jeopardize your warranty.
Learn the Different between Warranty and Insurance Coverage
Some Glendale AZ roof repair may be covered by your warranty, while some work may be covered by your homeowner’s plan instead. For example, in most cases, damage caused by a storm would be covered by your homeowner’s insurance but not by your roofing warranty.
By understanding what your warranty and your insurance cover individually, you can be sure that you are protected in all situations.
Know if Manufacturer Defects or Workmanship Error are Covered
Not all roof damage will be covered by your roofing warranty. Some damage will be considered the result of a manufacturer defect, and some will be attributed to workmanship error. Find out if your warranty covers the materials used, such as the shingles and the underlayment, or if it only cover the work performed. For example, if a warranty covers the materials then it might replace clay tiles if they break. However, if the warranty covers the work only, it may only replace the clay tiles if they have come loose.
When you talk to the roofing contractor, discuss specific examples of what the warranty covers so that you are clear about the distinction. You don’t want to wait until you need a roof repair to learn the lesson the hard way.
