Getting a warranty from Colorado Springs roofing companies for a roof installation is one of the most important aspects of the entire process, considering that a new roof is an expensive investment that must be protected.
What can go wrong with a new roof? Modern roofing materials are of high quality, due to the current standards of the manufacturing process. However, many things can go wrong with a new roof, from improper installation to damages caused by severe weather phenomena that we can do nothing about.
As a homeowner, you need to understand that there are two types of standard roof warranties:
- The product warranty, offered by the manufacturer and providing coverage against defects in roofing materials
- The workmanship warranty, provided by the roofing contractor and covering workmanship errors
These two types of warranties are completely separate and do not depend on each other. Warranties provided by manufacturers also vary according to the roof materials. There are very durable materials that come with a lifetime-warranty against manufacturing defects, while others carry a limited warranty, so it is good to ask questions before purchasing roofing materials, and have all the important information about them. In some cases, the manufacturer warranty may also be transferable once.
