GAF Roof Warranty Coverage
When you repair the roof on your home or install a new roof, you are making a significant investment. You’ll be happy to find out that GAF Roofing Systems come with a substantial roofing warranty. The GAF Roofing Warranty covers a score of things that we will get into.
A GAF Roofing System can be a residential or commercial roof made up of fiberglass or asphalt shingles. GAF is the largest manufacturer of these shingles in North America according to reference.com. People choose GAF roofing systems due to their completeness as a system to help keep out the elements and because of its superior durability.
Here at Dormer Doctor, we pride ourselves on customer satisfaction. We are licensed installers of GAF Roofing Systems in both Suffolk and Nassau counties. When you choose Dormer Doctor as your installer, we provide you with an extended 15-year warranty in addition to the warranty provided by GAF, so you are covered pretty much for a lifetime! We hope you do not experience any problems with your roofing system, but if you do, we have got you covered.
Coverage Against Manufacturer Defects
Coverage varies from system to system, but most manufacturers provide protection against manufacturer defects for their products. It does differ from brand to brand. Most architectural shingles carry a limited *Lifetime warranty while most 3-tabshingles carry a 20, 25 or 30-year warranty. The warranty on other roofing system components may vary from as little as a few months to a lifetime. However, the shingle you choose may have a warranty that lasts for 30 years or even lifetime, some or even all of the other components that comprise your roof may not. If they happen to cause a problem with your residential roof, you might not have the coverage you need. This is why GAF offers three different levels of warranty and coverage for your entire GAF roofing system. Click here to view an example of warranty breakdowns.
Coverage Against Workmanship
It is rare that you should have a problem with a new GAF roofing system, but if you do encounter a problem, it’s better to be safe and covered under a warranty. Without the warranty coverage, repair expenses could cost you a lot of money and aggravation. Many roofing contractors provide their own warranties to protect customers against workmanship errors. Commonly, those warranties are up to about 10 years. At Dormer Doctor, we extend the warranty to 15 years after the job is completed to ensure customer satisfaction.
Every warranty has its own specific terms and conditions. Always read everything thoroughly because most warranties are limited to the original owners of the system. If you are a subsequent owner, you may want to notify the warranty carrier of the ownership change.
Warranties are intended to bring you customer satisfaction and coverage for your GAF roofing system, but most will bring you peace of mind, knowing that if something goes wrong there is a solution.
At Dormer Doctor, we are licensed and fully insured with liability, disability and workers’ compensation. For a free estimate please call (631) 335-4663 or fill out our contact form.
