Your roof provides a critical layer of protection for your home. It also costs a significant amount. That’s why you should have strong warranties to protect your investment. If you have a good roofing warranty, you can avoid the additional costs of repairs or another replacement.
In this post, Homecraft® Inc. shares three ways to ensure you can count on your roofing warranty when you need it.
1. Understand the Coverage
Repairs necessitated by defective materials or poor workmanship by licensed contractors are usually covered by warranties. However, if the damage is due to homeowner neglect, your roofing warranty won’t be able to cover the necessary repairs. Keep in mind that some roofing warranties have additional exclusions that are different from other warranties. Read your warranty carefully and ask your contractor for clarification on any parts that are vague to you.
2. Check the Requirements
Warranties usually specify that the installation should be done correctly for the coverage to remain valid. That said, try to learn the manufacturer instructions for your roofing system and ask your contractor about their method of installation.
3. Hire the Right Contractor
Check the credentials and track record of the company you’re considering hiring. Ideally, you should go with a contractor that has been trained and certified to perform the installation of your chosen roof system. If the installation is done poorly or incorrectly, your warranty will become invalid. Roofing manufacturers usually have certification programs that enable roofers to carry out installations and ensure the roofs are up to standard. Hire companies that have passed these certifications so you can have peace of mind.
To guarantee quality roofing, we at Homecraft Inc. will make sure the installation is done properly. We will also do our best to make your project as convenient and worry-free as possible. Call us at (302) 798-0302 or fill out our contact form to schedule an appointment.
