Putting up a roof on a new structure or replacing your old one is an expensive project. Most homeowners fear the risk of undergoing losses due to defective shingles. However, it is possible to enjoy peace of mind by getting a GAF roof and accessories warranty to help cover this cost when you get products with manufacturing defects. There are a variety of warranties available, and each package has its benefits. Some require official registration, while others only need you to have the signed roofing contract or a purchase receipt. It is best to know your options so you can take the necessary measure and prevent unnecessary expenses.
Shingle and Accessory Limited Warranty
This warranty usually applies to all products from GAF, and you can claim compensation if the items have a manufacturing defect. However, you do not need to register your details in this package. All you need to have is the contract you signed with your professional roofer or the receipt confirming the purchase of the goods.
This GAF warranty covers all manufacturing defects and can help you avoid replacement expenses. However, you cannot claim compensation if the problem occurred during installation. Another benefit of this option is that you can work with any professional roofer, even if they are not GAF-approved. Nevertheless, ensure they have the required roofing skills to avoid damaging your shingles.
System Limited Warranty
Like the shingle & accessory limited warranty, this package compensates for manufacturing defects on the specified accessories. Depending on the products you purchase, you can also get a warranty against wind damage. The main difference is that this warranty offers lifetime coverage for the products included.
Unlike the first option, the system limited warranty is the first category requiring registration. However, our experts at Adamson Roofing Company will do all this work for you. Once you choose this option, we will ensure that we contact GAF with your details and submit the registration. This way, you will have an easy time claiming compensation in case of any defects.
System Plus Limited Warranty
When it comes to the system plus limited warranty, our staff will handle all the registration matters in advance. This package contains the system’s limited warranty features but increases the Smart Choice protection clause to 50 years. Unlike the former, which has only ten years, this warranty can give you peace of mind for a long time.
Our experts at Adamson Roofing Company love offering this option to our clients since it can help them during renovation. The warranty will cover all expenses of tearing off the worn-out roof, making it easier for you to replace it. Whether you have a commercial or residential building, this smart choice will become of great assistance.
Silver Pledge Limited Warranty
The silver pledge option is the second-highest warranty GAF provides and covers your shingles and accessories. It takes the bar a notch higher and includes a ten-year workmanship cover. This means that you can claim compensation for wrongful installation for up to a maximum of ten years. However, this only applies if you get the roof installed by a GAF-approved contractor like us.
Like the system plus warranty, this cover also takes care of expenses incurred while removing and disposing of an old GAF roof. Therefore, when you notice extensive damage to your top and want to replace it, you can do it without incurring heavy costs. Our team also takes care of the registration of this warranty since we have enough experience handling it.
Golden Pledge Limited Warranty
This is the highest warranty offered by GAF, and it includes all the contents of the other packages. Homeowners with this cover usually enjoy the best solutions from GAF since they get 20+ years of protection. However, the period assigned for your workmanship warranty will depend on the type of shingles you purchase.
Our roofers love this option since it gives many clients peace of mind for a long time, and they can roof without worry. We do the registration at our offices and give you a copy of the documents so you can keep them with our work contract. This way, when you need to file a claim, you will have all the documentation to present to GAF.
All GAF warranties help protect you from unexpected expenses incurred due to manufacturing defects. However, the advanced options include a workmanship warranty if you work with a GAF-certified contractor. You can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your investment will not bring you losses since you have the necessary cover.
Ensure you remind your roofer to register your advanced warranty before paying for the completed work. All our personnel are there to serve you and walk with you during the compensation journey.
