Are All Roofing System Warranties Equal?

Considering warranties is one of the most important variables to address as you invest in a new roof. Having the peace of mind that you are covered should an issue arise, with your new roofing system, is important to most property owners. The average asphalt roof should last roughly 20 years. However, product defects or installation issues can reduce that the lifespan of your new roof. How do you know you’re selecting a contractor that provides a superior warranty? Select the best roofers in Denver of course!

Manufacturer’s Limited Lifetime Warranty

Offering a manufacturer’s limited lifetime warranty is a privilege only some roofing contractors can pass on to their clients. The leading manufacturers in the industry offer these warranties to protect against unforeseen product defects such as granular loss or algae growth. Let’s take a look at how the warranties from the top manufacturers in the industry work.

Owens Corning

Owens Corning offers standard product limited warranties for all of their roofing systems. However, to obtain an extended warranty you must have your roofing system installed by an Owens Corning Roofing Platinum or Preferred Contractor. With this extended coverage, property owners enjoy up to 50 years of protection. At Elite Roofing we are proud to be an Owens Corning Platinum Preferred Contractor. To earn this distinction, we are required to meet several benchmarks including:

  •      Maintaining a positive standing with the Better Business Bureau
  •      Passing an installation workmanship inspection
  •      Passing a Dun & Bradstreet® credit analysis

If you are looking for the best roofers in Denver, who can also offer Owens Corning’s extended warranty coverage, look no further!

That’s right, for the 5 years following your roof replacement, we will fix any issues that arise from workmanship for free. While it is a rarity, we are always ready to make things right when an issue arises. Because we enjoy 4 seasons here in Colorado; wind, rain and snow typically help us identify any issues within the first year or 2 following installation. We offer 5 years to ensure every roof we install will have an optimal lifespan.

If you’re comparing Denver roofing companies, be sure to ask about their workmanship warranty and find out how long they have been in business. After all, a 5-year warranty is obsolete should the company no longer be in business.
