What's covered by a roofing warranty?
As you’re doing your research you will likely come across two types of warranties—shingle warranties provided by the manufacturer and workmanship warranties offered by the roofing company performing the installation.
Shingle Warranties (Manufacturer): Your manufacturer’s shingle warranty is intended to provide coverage against product or manufacturing defects for a certain length of time, usually 20 to 50 years, ensuring that the manufacturer will make the necessary repairs or replacements to defective parts within that term.
Workmanship Warranties (Roofer): The workmanship warranty from your roofing company is in place to cover any errors or faults in the workmanship for a pre-designated duration.
