A warranty from GAF will give homeowners the peace of mind that their investment is protected.

When investing in costly or cherished items, it's crucial to check the availability of a warranty. While your new roof provides protection against harsh weather, it's okay if you have some concerns like:  

  • How can I ensure the longevity of my roof?  

  • What exactly is a roofing warranty?  

  • To what extent does the warranty provide coverage and for what duration? 

In this article, we'll delve into the realm of GAF warranties, addressing all of your inquiries. It's important to bear in mind that the diverse GAF warranty options offer varying levels of coverage, affording you the reassurance that your roof is safeguarded. 

What is a Roofing Warranty and What Should I Look for When Searching for One? 

A roofing warranty is a guarantee provided by the roofing manufacturer or installer that covers specific aspects of your roof's performance, durability, and quality over a defined period. It is important to make sure you look at the different types of warranties that the manufacturer offers.  

It is important to know what type of warranties are offered by the manufacturer. For example, GAF offers different tiers of warranties that allow the homeowner to decide what is the best fit for them. But with anything that has a level/tier system, the price and the requirement have an increase as you move up the list. Next, we will be breaking down each type of warranty and seeing what requirements are needed for each.
