Need to invest in a commercial roof replacement? Don’t overlook the terms of the warranty, as this document plays a critical role in protecting your investment. Today, Vertex Roofing Contractors Inc. discusses three considerations that you should make when choosing a warranty.
Type of Coverage
Warranties vary in coverage, with some covering material only and others covering both labor and materials. Material-only warranties cover only the materials supplied by the manufacturer. With this type of warranty, all you’ll typically get is a patch kit or replacement material sent to you. On-site inspections and installations aren’t usually included.
Labor and materials warranties, on the other hand, cover both the products and the installation. They usually include repairing defective workmanship or replacing materials that have caused leaks. This type of warranty coverage is ideal if you’re looking for a cost-effective and comprehensive warranty solution.
No Dollar Limit vs. Original Cost vs. Prorated
A “no dollar limit” warranty means that a manufacturer will cover the entire cost of the roof repair. With an “original cost” warranty, a manufacturer will cover costs up to the amount of the original purchase. As for prorated warranties, these usually diminish in value over the years. That is why the best type of coverage is often the “no dollar limit,” non-prorated warranty.
Contractor-Backed Warranty vs. Manufacturer-Backed Warranty
Make sure you’re getting a manufacturer’s warranty and not just a contractor’s warranty. In addition, ensure that the manufacturer you’re dealing with is trusted and established in the industry.
