Why Manufacturer Warranties are Important

Purchasing a new roof for your commercial building is a decision that requires time, research, and frankly, the willingness to invest financially in the project. With all of this in mind, you need to be certain replacing an existing one will be worthwhile for both you and your business. A manufacturer warranty can help to ensure this and help to protect you against any mishaps with your roof.

A state of the art roof, when properly installed by a group of professionals, should last you for decades. However, mistakes can be made and accidents do happen. While many things, such as the weather, are out of our control, there are some things you can do to ensure the safety and longevity of your roof. The more you can do to protect yourself from future expenses the better off you will be in the long run.

Before you get started on a roofing project, it is always a good idea to consult your roofing contractor about manufacturer warranties. A good manufacturer warranty will ensure that any products used in the installation of your new roof that do not hold up to the test of time will be replaced. Manufacturer warranties usually last somewhere between 15 to 50 years, though it will depend on the materials used and the specific manufacturer. When a manufacturer offers a warranty on their product, you can rest assured knowing that they back their products and believe in what they are selling.

Purchasing a warranty along with your new roof will ensure that you will not be held accountable for paying for any product defects. This type of warranty also usually ensures that you'll receive warranted repairs for the first few years after installation at no additional cost to you.

In addition to a manufacturer warranty, there are other types of coverage that you may want to consider when investing in your new roof. Many roofing contractors offer warranties on their workmanship, which ensures that you will be protected against any roofing installation defects.

Remember what when deciding on what warranty you will purchase or be provided when investing in a new roof, the coverage is only as reliable as the roofing contractor you've chosen to work with. Make sure that you understand the terms of your warranty and discuss anything you may be concerned or confused about with your contractor before getting started on your roofing project.
