At Clyde Nettles, we understand how important your roof is to you and your home. Not only does it protect the integrity of your home as well as your belongings, the roof on your home reflects a huge investment.
When choosing a general contractor to install, maintain, or repair your roof, it is important to choose one that has the experience, knowledge, and dedication necessary to provide high-quality service. In addition, the materials that the general contractor uses as well as the warranty that is available can help you feel confident that you made the right choice.
If you are like many people, you simply add the warranty paperwork that comes with a new purchase to a file and forget about it. The warranties that Clyde Nettles offers you, though, provide you with the reassurance that your money is well spent. This is because the typical roof lasts decades; a lifespan of 25, 30, or even 40 years is not unusual. While Clyde Nettles chooses to work with only the best roofing materials, having the convenience of a warranty adds an extra layer of protection and peace of mind that can safeguard your investment should any problems crop up.
In nearly all cases, you will have access to two different types of warranties. One type, offered by the manufacturer of the roofing materials, provides coverage only for those particular materials. The other is usually offered directly by the contractors and covers the workmanship and labor aspect of the roofing job.
It is typical within the roofing industry for manufacturers to provide coverage against defects in their materials. While the specifics can vary greatly depending on the brand, a general guideline in use today allows for a warranty period of between 20 to 50 years on the shingles. The other components that make up the roof could have a much shorter warranty time period.
Regardless of the specific time frames involved, it is best to choose materials from a company that has a long history within the industry. This means they are more likely to still be in business if you should need to access the warranty terms at a later date.
At Clyde Nettles, we encourage you to learn more about the warranties that our manufacturers offer on their products and will gladly walk you through all of your options. If you have other questions or are ready to schedule a roofing estimate, contact us today!
