If your roof is installed, no matter what product, GAF, Certainteed or Owens Corning, and the installer is not a certified or preferred vendor with any of these vendors, you may face a reduced warranty that can be as little as 10 years in some cases and pro-rated with only warranty coverage for putting new shingles on. This doesn’t not include labor for tear off, dumpster fees and labor to clean up. Keep in mind this does not include workmanship.
You may be told at the time of sale that you are getting lifetime shingles, there is no such thing, don’t take our word for it, see for yourself the warranties offered on the sites of the manufacturer themselves and what they mean. “Limited- Lifetime” is all that is offered. This is across the board with all manufacturers. In Jan of 2011 GAF and Owens Corning changes their 30 yr architectural shingle to a, “Lifetime shingle” with a “Limited-Lifetime” warranty. Most manufactures followed suit, wanting to follow these industry giants lead. The confusion comes when a customer is told that they are getting a “Lifetime” shingle installed and the fine print of “Limited-Lifetime” isn’t mentioned during the sales presentation.
Do your homework when dealing with a contractor that is not preferred by the shingle manufacturer they are installing. Read our “We Have You Covered” Section to learn exactly what type of warranty you should be looking for.
