How to Find Out About the Warranty on Your Roof
- Friday, 23 July 2021 11:40
Roofing products tend to have a separate warranty from the labor warranty associated with the roofing service that you hire. However, if you want to find out about both types of warranty, you have to go to your Fort Smith roofing companies and ask them directly
, even before you consider installing your new roof.
Warranties can differ greatly based on a lot of factors. For example, some products might even have different warranties depending on the area where they’re being used, although in general the warranty will not differ too much. The most important factor, however, is the material. Some roofing materials, such as slate, concrete and steel, are rated as durable enough to withstand a lot of stressors and to maintain a top lifespan of more than 75-100 years. On the lower end, you have cheaper asphalt and composite shingles which can last for anything from 15 to 30 years.
As for the labor warranty, make sure you ask your roofer to provide you with information about it in writing, as part of your initial estimate. If they are not willing to do so, that’s already a pretty huge red flag, since it means that you won’t be able to call them out if there’s a problem with the roof and it breaks down only 1-2 months after it was set up.
