Certain brands inspire loyalty from some homeowners, who won’t take any substitutes when it’s time to have their roof replaced. Residential and commercial roofing contractor Precision Roofing Inc. discusses the qualities that make roofing brands stand out.
Roofing installation is more than just adding a new color or style to your home. A roofing manufacturer has to have quality roofing products that can withstand temperature extremes, high winds, and driving rain. Quality roofing should have resistance against 111 miles per hour, or the equivalent of a Category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale. Laminate or “architectural” asphalt shingles are doubly thick, and are perceived to be more durable than traditional three-tab shingles. But this is only true if the asphalt shingle is of good quality.
Roofing companies that hold certification from the manufacturers they represent are much less likely to commit installation mistakes. Today’s roofing systems feature components that need to be installed correctly the first time, otherwise it could result in roofing malfunction. Fortunately, manufacturers provide training and certification to authorized contractors, with different levels depending on the products the contractor chose to offer.
Our designation as a GAF Master Elite® contractor lets us offer complete roofing systems like the GAF Lifetime® Roofing system. We are also authorized to offer exclusive warranty coverage, including the industry-leading GAF Golden Pledge® Ltd. Warranty. It features up to 50 years material coverage, and up to 25 years workmanship coverage.
Speaking of workmanship, you should be aware that workmanship warranty coverage varies considerably depending on the manufacturer and the contractor. The aforementioned GAF warranties include manufacturer-backed workmanship coverage. This is ideal because homeowners can expect workmanship coverage, even in case of extreme situations like the contractor going out of business. Also, more than a few contractors offer their own limited warranties that include workmanship coverage, sometimes supplementing the one provided by the manufacturer.
