The duration of roofing warranties varies by company. Most shingle warranties come with a “Lifetime” warranty.
Today, we define what a lifetime warranty means and whether an extended warranty is worth it or not.
Lifetime warranty has become an industry standard. This warranty is in effect as long as you live in your home. Most of these warranties can be transferred at least once within a certain number of years after installation.
Keep in mind that roofing warranties may be prorated. It means that the amount a manufacturer will pay to repair or replace a roof will decrease in increments through the years.
The length of your warranty can also depend on the roofing contractors you hire and the credentials they have. At Kidd-Luukko Corporation, we take pride in the relationships we have built with some of the best manufacturers in the industry. We are a GAF Master Elite® contractor, Duro-Last® Elite Master Contractor, Duro-Last Elite Master Contractor, Certified Sika Sarnafil® Applicator and Certified Firestone Applicator.
Benefits of an Extended Warranty
Roof repair and replacement involve significant costs. An extended warranty comes in handy in instances where you unexpectedly need to repair or replace your roof.
Aside from peace of mind benefits, it lets you avoid the stress of an unexpected repair bill. You also don’t have to look for another contractor if something goes wrong with your roof. When the roof can’t be fixed, your contractor will replace it. Further, it protects you from being taken advantage of or scammed.
