Your roof is a critical part of your home or business as it protects the people you care about most, your belongings, and even your livelihood. But it’s no secret that a quality roof isn’t cheap. However, one of the best investments you can have when getting a new roof is a quality roof warranty in Tampa, FL. These warranties can protect you, and your wallet, if problems develop from materials, installation, or workmanship. While it may be appealing to go with a roofing contractor who offers the cheapest cost, if they don’t provide any sort of warranty, you may be out more money in the long run.
Top 3 benefits of roof warranties
- Cover the cost of repairs
Roof warranties can help cover the cost of repairs or, in rare cases, replacements if something goes wrong with your roof. This can be especially helpful if the problem was caused by the materials themselves or poor workmanship.
For example, if you are getting a new shingle roof, your contractor will likely be putting hundreds of shingles on your roof. Sometimes these shingles can come from the manufacturer with a rip or tear. In this case, a roof warranty may cover the cost of replacing and repairing these materials. And often, the contractor will be able to do this repair free of charge too.
- Assistance in filing claims
Warranties can also provide you with assistance if you need to file a claim. This can include help from the roofing contractor, such as providing an inspector to assess the damage, or even financial assistance for filing a claim.
Many times it can be confusing to navigate the process of warranties, but a trusted contractor can help walk you through the roof warranty they offer in an easy to understand manner. Often, the warranty will require an inspector to come out and assess the damages to know just what needs to be covered, but you won’t have to find one, as it will be provided to you.
- Some warranties are transferable
When you are getting a new roof, you are investing in something long term for your home or business. Most new roofs can last 20-50 years! There is a good chance that you may be moving homes or businesses within that time. If that’s the case, then when you sell the home or business, the new owner can take ownership of the warranty. And while most warranties don’t cover the entire lifespan of a roof, it is peace of mind knowing that there are some years of protection left.
This transferable warranty can even work in your favor too, as you can either sell the home for more profit, or when buying a home, be protected from damages or repairs for the remaining duration.
Keep your warranty active
Having a roof warranty is a great thing, but many homeowners don’t realize that they need to follow specific guidelines to keep it active. Often, a roof warranty requires the owner to perform routine maintenance and inspections on the roof. Without these regular inspections, the warranty can become inactive. While it is always a good thing to get regular maintenance and inspections done, protecting your roof warranty is another great reason!
