Roof warranties are an important thing to bear in mind when it comes to your home. The warranty usually indicates how long the roof is covered for and what you need to do in the event of damage. A typical roof warranty depends on the expected life of the shingles. The average life of a shingle ranges from 25 years to 40 years.
Generally, the warranty covers material replacement. In cases of defective materials, using a prorated calculation basis, the manufacturer will provide a replacement or bear the cost. Hence, if you have used half of the lifecycle, 15 years on a 30-year shingle, the roof will be prorated based on the time the roof was installed which is regarded as the time you were able to use the product.
There are instances the roofing manufacturers might not fulfill the warranty condition. For instance, when you install the roof based on specification different from the laid down specs given by the manufacturer, they might not fulfill the condition.
With this in mind, you really have to follow the manufacturer’s specification in installing your roof.
When you do not know about your roof warranty, there is a huge chance that you might void it unknowingly. Hence, it is imperative to learn about the terms and conditions of your roof after it's installed.
Usually, after installing a new roof, some roofers leave bundles of shingles for subsequent repairs or renovation purpose. The warranty information is usually behind the bundle of shingles. Also, you can get detailed info online by selecting the specific product that you have in your roof. This will provide ample information on the terms and conditions of your warranty.
