Shingle roof replacement is a big step when it comes to caring for your home. Typically meant to last as much as 40 years and costing upward to several thousand dollars, roof replacement represents not only a big improvement to your home, but also a fairly large investment. Because shingle roof replacement is such an important part of keeping your home functional, it’s essential to make sure you have a warranty for your new roof.

Using the Best Roofing Materials

The quality of roofing materials varies from one manufacturer to another. That’s why it’s important to use only products from reputable roofing material manufacturers. Quality roofing shingles typically carry a better warranty than their lower-quality counterparts. For example, architectural shingles often carry a limited lifetime warranty and traditional three-tab shingles can carry coverage for 25 to 30 years.

While the use of high-quality roofing materials typically heads off most roofing problems, it’s still important to ensure that a warranty is in place to take care of any manufacturers’ defects, especially long term. Even small defects can add up to big problems over time. Remember, your roof should last a few decades, at least; a warranty that covers defects in materials just makes good sense when it comes to protecting your roofing investment for that many years.

Hiring the Best Roofing Contractor

Many common roofing problems can be avoided by using high-quality materials, but it’s just as important to ensure that you’ve chosen a reputable contractor for your roofing needs. Many problems with roofing can be traced to poor contractor workmanship, which may void the manufacturer’s warranty, too.
