What Roofstar Says
Do Roof Repairs or Re-Roofs Come With A Warranty?
Every roofer should offer some form of warranty on a roof repair or re-roof. At Roofstar Arizona, all our roofing projects come with a full warranty. That way, you can feel secure in the safety of your home and our services.
How Long Does a Roof Warranty Last?
The length of a roof warranty depends on the roofing company providing the work, the type of job, and the materials used on your roof. Roofers also tend to provide different warranty lengths on materials and labor.
For example, roofers may offer one year warranty on the materials used on your roof and five, ten, or fifteen years on labor.
What Voids a Roof Warranty?
Many things can void a roof warranty, and it’s important to understand what they are before deciding on a roofing contractor or trying to enact the warranty. Some common things that void a roof warranty include:
- Poor Installation. Most material warranties on roofs are actually from the manufacturer of the materials, not the roofing contractor themself. These manufacturers have several standards for how materials must be installed, such as the number and length of nails. If you use an inexperienced roofer that doesn’t correctly install materials, it could void your warranty.
- Antennas. Many homes have an antenna or satellite dish on their roof. Unfortunately, if a satellite dish or antenna falls or causes damage to your roof, it can void your labor warranty.
- DIY. It can be tempting to patch a leaky roof by yourself, but this can quickly backfire. The moment you work on your roof by yourself is when your warranty is voided since the work done on the roof is no longer by the original roofing contractor. DIYing your roof is also a bad idea because a warranty often covers leaks and other minor problems.
- Pressure Washing. A clean roof is a dream for many homeowners. But pressure washing can damage shingles, thus voiding your warranty. Luckily, there are other ways to clean your roof, like using metallic zing strips that release an anti-fungal treatment when it rains.
