Roofing Contractor and Shingle Warranties

Your shingle roof is the unsung hero of your home. It shields you from the elements, keeps you warm and dry (or cool and dry), and protects your loved ones and all of your possessions. Like all things, roofs have a lifespan. Eventually they wear down, succumbing to the wear and tear of time and weather. When it is time to replace your roof, choosing the right roofing contractor becomes paramount. One of the key factors to consider – the shingle manufacturer and workmanship warranty offerings of the roofing companies you are considering. Its important to note that not all roofing contractors have the certifications needed to offer the best warranties.

Safeguarding Your Investment

Replacing the shingle roof of your home is a significant investment. It’s not just about the monetary cost; it’s about the safety and security of your home. A warranty is your safety net, offering protection against defects in materials and workmanship. Opting for a contractor with robust shingle warranties ensures that your investment is safeguarded for the life of your roof.

Quality Assurance

A contractor who stands behind their work by offering strong manufacturer and workmanship warranties speaks volumes about the level of certification they have attained with the shingle manufacturers they represent. It’s a testament to their commitment to excellence. When a contractor offers comprehensive warranties, it signifies that they are highly trained and are using proper installation techniques. This translates to peace of mind for you, knowing that your contractor is using good products while installing a roof that will last.

Long-Term Savings

While it may be tempting to go with the cheapest option upfront, it can end up costing you a lot more in the long run, as well as causing unnecessary headaches. A contractor who provides the best warranties typically uses the highest-quality materials and employs skilled professionals. This translates to a roof that withstands the test of time, reducing the likelihood of costly repairs or premature replacements down the road. Investing in quality upfront can save you significant expenses in the future.

Confidence in Coverage

A comprehensive warranty not only covers materials but also workmanship.

Material warranties guarantee the roofing materials against defects or failures for the typical life span of the roof. Note that most manufacturers offer longer warranties for architectural shingles than they do three-tab shingles.

Workmanship warranties cover things related to the installation process. In essence, if roofing materials fail because of improper installation, your contractor is responsible for fixing it. To summarize, using a roofing contractor that can provide you with strong material and workmanship warranties means that if issues arise due to installation errors or material defects, you’re covered. It’s not just about having a piece of paper; it’s about having the confidence that your contractor will stand by their work and make things right if anything goes wrong. With the best warranties, you can rest assured that you’re protected against unforeseen circumstances.

Enhanced Resale Value

If you decide to sell your home, a roof with a solid warranty is an attractive selling point for potential buyers. It instills confidence and reassures them that they won’t be facing immediate expenses for roof repairs or replacements. In a competitive real estate market, having a transferrable warranty can give your property an edge and potentially fetch a higher price. It’s an investment that pays dividends both now and in the future.


When it comes to replacing your roof, the importance of choosing a contractor that offers the best warranties cannot be overstated. It’s not just about the warranty itself; it’s about the peace of mind, quality assurance, and long-term protection it provides. By opting for a contractor who has the ability to offer top-notch warranties, you’re not just investing in a roof; you’re investing in the safety, security, and value of your home.

So, before you start a reroofing project, be sure to prioritize warranties and choose a roofing contractor who offers strong warranties – this means that they are highly qualified and value your peace of mind as much as you do.
