All major manufacturers of roofing materials warrant, or insure, their products against factory defects. With modern industrial processes, though, claims for these problems are rare. More important than looking only at warranties is checking all aspects of a contractor. A good place to start is with the requirements to be an Owens Corning Platinum Preferred Contractor.
1. Strong Warranty
Only a very few roofers qualify for Owens Corning’s highest level of contractor, Platinum Preferred. As Owens Corning itself says, such a contractor meets the company’s most stringent requirements for “professionalism, reliability, and unparalleled craftsmanship.”
With this level of recognition comes Owens Corning’s strongest, best warranty. The Platinum Preferred warranty protects materials, provides blow-off coverage, gives algae resistance, and gives 50 years of full protection (including labor to correct a manufacturer’s mistake). Then it goes a step further and also covers workmanship issues for installation errors.
2. Superior Workmanship
No roofing company is going to risk its own money on a contractor incapable of good installation work. Owens Corning can afford to back contractor workmanship because, by the requirements of the Platinum Preferred program, only the best roofers qualify.
Finding a Platinum Preferred roofer is like having a relative in the roofing business. The work will be done as if your roof was in the family. The roof replacement will be done at such a superior level of workmanship, you will never have to worry about water infiltration or sloppy errors.
The overall value and longevity of your roofing investment is fully protected in the hands of a Platinum Preferred Contractor. Many Birmingham homeowners seem to think a superior contractor costs substantially more than some fly-by-night operator, so they try to go for the “cheaper” solution. They often end up paying for those money-saving measures through frequent repairs, short life span, and shoddy workmanship.
Many customers find investing in a quality roof installed by a well-trained crew is worth a few extra installation dollars. The value lies in how the old roof is removed, the new roof laid down, and all small details are addressed. A Platinum Preferred contractor puts down a roof which will stay put and provide years of reliable service.
