4 Kinds of Info That Should Be in Your Roofing Warranty

Roofing problems can be difficult (and expensive) to deal with. Residential roofing warranties help you avoid the financial burden of the repairs or replacement. However, if you want to make sure your warranty actually will cover for you, you have to make sure that it has these four important pieces of information on the list.

The Coverage

Not all roofing warranties will cover for the same type of damage. Some warranties will only cover problems related to the material's quality, while others will cover the labor costs. If you can, look for warranties that cover for both at the same time, or separate warranties to address all possible problems.

The Limitations

Aside from warranty coverage, any roofing contractor will also say that it's also important that the policy contains info on limitations. For example, some roofing problems may be caused by factors that are not included in the warranty's policy. A good example of this would be if your roof got damaged because someone was careless with adding a skylight.

Warranty Period

A warranty period will only provide coverage for a set amount of time. However, this period is different from one warranty to another. An asphalt shingle roof will usually have a warranty that lasts for 10-20 years, but there are cases where the warranty can last longer. In any case, your roofing warranty should have info on exactly how long your warranty lasts.


Most roofing warranties also include details about the requirements for qualifying. For example, the roof must be installed by certified residential roof replacement experts or the roof's material must be from a specific manufacturer. There are also warranties that require the homeowner to have the roof inspected and maintained on a regular basis to make sure that the problem was caused by poor installation or neglect.
