How Can I Optimize My Warranty?
Warranties typically come with a new roof from the contractor that installed it. If you purchased a new pre-built home, you have the shingles that were installed at the builder’s discretion. If you are fixing a roof on an existing home or putting a new roof on an older home, you can choose the shingles yourself. The majority of your warranty quality comes from the quality of the shingles you put on. The shingles will come with a grade from the manufacturer and a typical lifespan.
What Does a Warranty Typically Cover?
Roofs almost always have a separate warranty from the home insurance. They roof warranty will most likely cover regular wear and tear for the expected duration of the roof. New roof warranties do not usually cover fire, hail, storm damage, damage from lack of cleaning, or damage from installation of items like satellite dishes. There are a couple of different types of warranties. An unlimited warranty covers all materials and labor costs for normal roof repairs. You can also purchase a cheaper warranty that covers either workmanship only or manufacturer’s materials only.
