Purchasing a new roof for your home is a major investment, so it makes sense that you would want all completed work to be covered by a warranty. In fact, there are multiple types of warranties available for new roofing options. Here is a brief overview of each of these warranties and how they apply to your roof.
The first type of warranty to be aware of is a workmanship warranty. This warranty relates to the work done by the roofing contractors who installed the roof on your home. Essentially, if any issues were to occur with your roof because of something related to the installation (such as a loose nail or similar issue) they would be covered by this warranty. This way, you won’t be responsible for labor costs when these types of repairs are made.
As the name implies, a manufacturer’s warranty (sometimes referred to as a materials warranty) comes from the producer of the roofing product. This warranty covers any problems related to the materials used in your roof. Product defects are resolved through this type of warranty, though the warranty typically only covers the product itself—not the workmanship costs. It should be noted, however, that weather-related damage, that you could see happen in Northeastern Ohio, is covered by your homeowner’s insurance—not the warranty.
With a firm understanding of these warranties, you can have peace of mind and be better prepared to resolve any issues that may arise with your roof. Let the staff at Miller Custom Exteriors show you the roofing options and warranties that they offer.
