When you have a roofing system installed in your home, the warranty coverage is one of the greatest assets you have. After all, with the warranty, you can have your roof repaired or replaced free of charge if it’s clear that your roof has manufacturing or workmanship defects. This is the same with GAF roofing systems and as the homeowner, it’s your responsibility to understand as much as you can about the GAF warranty coverage.
In this post, expert roofing contractor Mobley Brothers Roofing and Renovation gives you a guide to GAF’s Warranty Coverages.
Unlike other warranties, the GAF Shingle & Accessory Limited Warranty and the GAF Roofing System Limited Warranty do not require registration. All you have to do is hold on to your proof of purchase, which can be your contract with the installer or the invoice from the roofing supply store, and you can present it to GAF in the event that your GAF roof experiences any issues that you can be fixed by your warranty. Keep in mind, however, that enhance warranties like the System Plus Limited Warranty and Golden Pledge Warranty requires registration. Thankfully, your contractor can take care of that for you instead.
Benefits of the Different GAF Warranties
As expected, every warranty type that GAF offers have different benefits, especially the Enhanced warranties. For instance, the System Plus Limited Warranty extends your Smart Choice Protection Period to 50 years from the usual 10 and even includes tear-off if necessary. The Silver Pledge Limited Warranty, on the other hand, also offers disposal services and 10 years of workmanship coverage on top of the previous benefits. The Golden Pledge Limited Warranty, on the other hand, has a workmanship coverage that lasts for 20, 30 or even 30 years depending on the shingle that you install.
If you wish to learn more about the warranties that you can have for your roof, don’t hesitate to approach your roofing contractor for their assistance.
Lifetime Limited Warranty
When it comes to the Lifetime Limited Warranty offered by GAF, it means that so long as you own the property where the shingles and accessories were installed, the warranty will cover any defects that occur due to manufacturing faults or workmanship problems. If you intend to sell your home and move out, on the other hand, the warranty can still protect the property so long as it was properly transferred during the Smart Choice Protection Period.
According to experts, GAF has different coverages for the different kinds of issues that your roof can face. For example, if it’s clear your roof has manufacturing defects and GAF approved your warranty claim during the Smart Choice Protection Period, they’ll provide you with the replacement products and pay the full reasonable cost of labor for installation. After the Smart Choice Protection Period, on the other hand, labor will no longer be covered and the amount of replacement products will be reduced.
