Appliances and technology come with
warranties, and so do roofing systems. While there is an initial warranty
provided by the contractor and/or manufacturer, you could also opt to purchase
an extended warranty. If your roof breaks down and becomes damaged during the
warranty period, your repair costs can be covered by the warranty. But is an
extended warranty for your roof worth the investment?
There are three different types of warranties
Standard product limited warranty
that is provided by the manufacturer to cover defected materials.
Workmanship warranties that the
roofing contractor offers themselves to cover the quality of their work.
System warranty, also known as an
extended warranty, has more comprehensive coverage and a longer timeframe than
standard and workmanship warranties.
Extended warranties offer better coverage than standard warranties. This warranty can cover the cost of a roof
replacement, including labor and materials. The timeframe of an extended
warranty can range from 50 years to lifetime coverage, while standard coverage
lasts around 10 years. There can be coverage on both materials and
craftsmanship on your extended warranty.
There is an additional cost for extended
warranties that are based on the square footage of the home. The extended
warranty has to be purchased through your roofing contractor that installed the
product, which they must be certified by the manufacturer to install.
To purchase an extended warranty, there are
Your roof must be installed by a
roofing contractor that is certified by the manufacturer.
Your roof system must meet several
qualifying components to qualify as a roofing system. These components are set
by the manufacturer of the roofing materials.
Your roof must be installed over a
ventilated deck that covers the whole structure.
While there is the additional cost of
purchasing an extended warranty, the investment is worth it. Roofing repairs
can be costly, so to be able to cover that upfront with an extended warranty
is the way to go. You can also have peace of mind that if there are any issues
with your roof, you'll have coverage on both the materials and workmanship.
