How To Boost The Length Of Your Roof Warranty

A roof warranty is a type of insurance policy. It insures your roof against manufacturer’s defects — and sometimes against installer’s errors — for a limited time. The weaker the warranty, the shorter the time. Is paying extra for a better warranty worthwhile? 

Warranties for Shingle Roofing

GAF offers its best warranties to homeowners who use the best roofers. Yellowhammer Roofing can offer GAF’s System Warranty, which offers:

  • Lifetime protection for shingles
  • 10 years’ non-prorated protection
  • 15 years wind warranty
  • 10 years’ protection for StainGuard-labeled or Ridge Cap shingles

Owens Corning offers its supreme warranty to Platinum Preferred roofers like Yellowhammer Roofing:

  • 50 years of TRU PROtection® (including tear-off and disposal costs)
  • 15 years’ blow-off coverage
  • 10 years’ StreakGuard™ Algae Resistance
  • Lifetime workmanship coverage (reducing after 25 years)

This Owens Corning warranty comes at an additional cost, but for Alabama or Tennessee homeowners intending to live a full life under one shingle roof, it is a wise investment. 

Workmanship Warranty

Most roofers do not warrant — insure — their work themselves. They offer the manufacturer’s warranty only. If the manufacturer, such as GAF or Owens Corning, wishes to extend a warranty to cover installation error, then the homeowner has access to a strong warranty (as with Owens Corning’s Platinum Preferred warranty). If labor is not covered, the homeowner is stuck with a weaker warranty and added repair expenses.  

That makes Yellowhammer Roofing different and better. We insure our own installation with a workmanship warranty good for five years.
