Your roofing warranty isn’t something you think about often unless you’re in need of a roof repair. However, will your warranty really cover the cost of repairs or replacement? Howard Roofing & Home Improvements discusses how you can make sure of that.
Find Out About Your Coverage
Usually, manufacturer warranties will cover leak repairs caused by defective materials. Your contractor will also provide a warranty that will cover poor workmanship. However, extreme weather conditions, acts of terrorism, damage from ponding water and poor maintenance are usually excluded. This is because these are out of the control of the manufacturer or contractor.
Check Manufacturer Requirements
The manufacturer of your roof also has requirements for the contractor. Make sure to check with your manufacturer if a roofing contractor is authorized to install its materials and products. If the contractor is authorized, then you may go ahead with the roof repair and maintenance. Any work done on your roof by someone other than the manufacturer-certified contractor can result in a voided warranty.
Reduce Your Need for a Warranty
Prevention is always better than cure. Although it’s good to know of your warranty’s terms, conditions and coverages, the best move for you is choosing a contractor you can trust with good workmanship. Try to check their ratings, recognitions and testimonials. Every trusted contractor makes sure that their future clients have access to see their past work and more information about them.
