Don’t Let Your Roof Warranty Take You Off Guard In Houston

Don’t Get Caught Off Guard By Your Warranty!

How To Get The Most Protection For
Your Houston Roofing System

We’ll set the stage: You got a roof replacement a few years ago, and things were looking great. Then, you noticed a water stain on your ceiling and discovered it’s because of some loose shingles.

No problem. You’ll use your roofing warranty to fix the issue.

But the inspector says your shingles weren’t installed correctly and denies your claim. You’re left standing in a whirlwind of confusion and in need of a roof repair.

Where did it all go wrong?

If a roof issue is due to poor workmanship, the manufacturer will deny the claim.

If you hire Houston Roofing & Construction, you won’t need to stress about loopholes. Our warranties are clear, straightforward, and guaranteed effective for your whole roofing system. Better still, you can be confident in our level of workmanship backing them up. 

When it comes down to it, great products, skillful workmanship, and complete understanding give you the best chance of utilizing your manufacturing defect warranty. 

We want to set you up for success when your roof warranty is put to the test! 

Break Out Your Magnifying Glass, And
Read Your Warranty’s Fine Print!

We know how annoying it is to stop and read the fine print – it strains your patience and eyes. But scrutinizing the wording of your roof warranty is essential to get the most out of it.

Many manufacturer warranties only include materials and leave out the workmanship side. This leaves customers out of luck when a problem occurs involving the installation process.

So how do you avoid this?

Read the whole warranty, and ask your contractor as many questions as needed to feel comfortable (and honestly, if your contractor has integrity, you won’t even need to ask – they’ll tell you upfront).

Our GAF Gold Pledge Warranty looks like this:

  • Lifetime warranty, including 50 YEARS of 100% NON-PRORATED coverage.
  • Eligibility for an exclusive 40-point factory inspection of your completed roof.
  • Unlimited wind speed protection.
  • 25-year workmanship warranty that is fully backed by GAF.
  • Covers your entire roofing system.

Solid warranties don’t generalize materials and workmanship – they are particular with what and how products are used.

And to get the best warranty, you must work with the best people.

Warranty Coverage Depends
On Who Installs It

It might not seem to matter who sells and installs your roof when considering warranties. Great roofing products should be able to hold their own regardless of the company that puts them on, right?

(Shakes head.)

Who you purchase your roof through and who installs it makes all the difference in the world when it comes to its warranty. Incredible roofing manufacturers, like GAF, for example, vet and inspect the companies they offer their warranties through.

This protects them and ensures their products are installed correctly to give you their maximum benefits

Some roof installers may use GAF materials but very few (only 3%) have reached Master Elite status, GAF’s top certification.

And even fewer (about 1%) have achieved GAF’s highest standard of approval, the President’s Club Award – and WE HAVE!

This means GAF is more than confident in our performance, reliability, and service

At Houston, We Believe Warranty
Knowledge Is Power

Because roofing warranties can be tricky, we strive to make ours as clear as possible at Houston Roofing and Construction. Homeowners should know just as much about their roof warranty as their contractor does.

Having said that, when contractors don’t know the specifics of their own warranties, it’s hard to make their customers feel comfortable with them. Dodgy roofing companies might not be giving you the warranty you purchased.

Our sales managers are honest and knowledgeable about what we offer our customers and even tailor our suggestions based on your wants and needs.

When you can fully trust your warranty to cover your whole roofing system, you won’t find yourself chasing after your loose shingles anymore. 

We have you covered!
