Your commercial roof plays an important role in protecting your property from the effects of bad weather and it is a significant investment. That’s why understanding your commercial roof warranty is so critical. In today’s article, Chase Roofing, the leading roofing company in the area, explains everything you need to know about commercial roof warranties.
Types of Commercial Roof Warranty
There are two main categories of warranties: the warranties from the roofing contractor and the warranties from roofing manufacturers. You should get one of each. Roofing contractor warranties tend to be shorter than the warranties from roofing manufacturers. The length of time this kind of warranty covers is a negotiating point. There are four different types of manufacturer warranties: Manufacturer’s NDL Warranty, Manufacturer’s Labor and Materials Warranty, Manufacturer’s Materials Warranty and Manufacturer’s Roof System Warranty.
As a roof repair expert, we highly recommend reading your warranty and understanding the responsibilities of the parties involved in the installation of your roof. The roofing manufacturer is responsible for replacing its defective products free of charge for the duration of the warranty.
The roofing contractor is responsible for repairing or replacing the defective materials that they supply and to provide the necessary labor to correct poor workmanship free of charge for the length of the warranty. The property owner or their representative is responsible for any costs not covered by either the roofing contractor warranty or the roofing manufacturer warranty and they are responsible for maintaining the roof.
