The Benefits of Purchasing a Commercial Roof Warranty
A commercial roof installation, replacement, or repair is an investment in your building. The roofing system is a crucial part of the structural integrity of a building, impacting its lifespan, value, and quality. To further protect that investment, many property owners choose to purchase a roof warranty.
What is Included in a Commercial Roof Warranty?
Typically, warranties are dependent on the scope of the work being completed and the manufacturers being used. Many warranties cover material defects and workmanship errors; several packages are often offered based on the building type, roofing system, and budget. Almost all warranties are for 25 years and require conditions to be met in order for the client to keep their coverage, such as an initial inspection and regular maintenance.
What is Not Included in a Roofing Warranty?
A warranty is excellent to have in the case of significant damage. However, there are a few things that wouldn’t fall under warranty coverage. For example, neglect, common leaks or repairs, and any modifications or upgrades are typically not included. Additionally, damage caused by severe or unusual weather conditions, such as hurricanes, hailstorms, and nor’easters, are not commonly covered. It’s crucial to talk to your roofing contractor to understand what will be covered and what will not; that way, you can decide what your building needs.
Why Opt-In to Roofing Warranty?
Most building owners tend to opt-in to a roofing warranty for the peace of mind of knowing their asset is protected and covered. Especially on the east coast, many building owners will choose to use weather-resistant materials. While a warranty won’t cover weather-caused damage, it may cover the replacement or repair of a material that had claimed to be weather resistant. Warranties can also help save money down the line if, years later, a material-related repair or replacement needs to be performed.
Commercial Roof Warranty Pricing
While some roofing companies tack on warranty as an additional cost at the end of the sale, our PB Roofing Estimation Team includes the warranty price in our budget proposal. The pricing of the warranty is dependent on the scope of the work being completed.
