The roof is one of the most important parts of your home exterior. It demands a lot of key factors, such as skillful installation and seasonal maintenance, in order to function properly and efficiently. But there is another piece to the equation that confuses plenty of homeowners until today – the GAF warranty. A roof replacement contractor answers some of the most popular questions to help you.
1. Which GAF Warranty should you choose: All roofing shingles and qualifying accessories by GAF come with the GAF Shingle & Accessory Limited Warranty. There are no eligibility requirements for this great coverage, meaning that you do not have to do anything to purchase this product. It has a Wind Warranty Term of 15 years, similar to other high-end GAF warranties. It makes a great starting point in the event you encounter a manufacturing defect with your roofing items.
2. What are the benefits of the GAF Roofing System Limited Warranty: You are automatically eligible for the coverage provided by this warranty when you install a GAF Roofing System, which is made of GAF Lifetime Shingles and at least three qualifying accessories. It adds Lifetime coverage to your qualifying accessory products. You may also be eligible for WindProven™ Limited Wind Warranty. However, it will depend on the products you choose to install.
3. What are the benefits of the System Plus Limited Warranty: This warranty provides all of the same coverage available in the GAF Roofing System Limited Warranty. The main difference is that the Smart Choice® Protection Period – the period of time after the installation of the GAF Products during which the coverage provided for in your GAF warranty is non-prorated – is extended from 10 years to 50 years. It also includes tear-off when necessary.
4. What do you mean by “Lifetime Limited Warranty”: The term “Lifetime” refers to the length of coverage issued by your GAF warranty and means as long as you, the original owner or the qualified second owner, own the property where the shingles and/or accessories are installed. However, it is only applicable to products installed on a single-family detached residence owned by individuals.
