The Straight Scoop About Warranties
Most basic roofing warranties are worthless to the consumer.
There are workmanship warranties and then there are the accompanying product manufacturer’s performance warranties. If your roofing company does not take the time to explain the difference and nuance associated with these two items… RUN!
Most manufacturer’s warranties are pro-rated with a nebulous “reduction figure” for today’s dollars to protect the manufacturer. For example: if you paid $15,000 for a new roof today, and 11-15 years later the product failed, the manufacturer might only pay out the prorated amount of 1/600 per month left on the warranty tied to an allotted pro-rated dollar figure.
That means for a typical 3,000 square foot home with basic product warranty from the manufacturer, you might get back a couple hundred dollars!
Workmanship warranties: Ross Roofing provides five to ten year length workmanship warranties on most of their new roofing projects (NOTE: We offer no warranties on repairs). All roofing companies offer a workmanship warranty, however, it is only as good as the last month they succeed in staying in business. What good is a 10 year warranty when if there is a problem it usually presents at years 7 to 10 and your roofing company has gone out of business? Every year it seems like a dozen “brand spanking new” roofers go into business on our peninsula and every year 5 or 6 of them mysteriously disappear. We know this because Ross Roofing has a rather robust repair department that operates 365 days a year fixing unspeakably shameful roofing atrocities that other hack kneed roofing failures leave behind. The stories we can tell!
The best warranty on the market right now is the Owens Corning 50 year no questions asked Platinum warranty for residential asphalt shingle roofs. Simply put, even if your roofing company goes out of business 49 years from today, Owens Corning will still replace every last shingle on your home for free if it fails to protect you from the storms. The clincher that makes this warranty invaluable is that roof you paid $15,000 for today? In 49 years, it will cost your wallet over $50,000– but not if you have this fantastic Platinum Owens Corning warranty. $0 is better that $50,000.
The only requirement for this Platinum warranty is that you have your asphalt shingle roof installed by your area’s Owens Corning Platinum level Roofing Company.
