Understanding Roof Warranties
What’s the difference between a contractor roof warranty and a manufacturer roof warranty?
This one is pretty straight forward. One comes from the roofing company that installed the roof and one comes from the manufacturer of the roofing material.
Manufacturer warranties vary and some cover only the material while others cover the entire system. Most manufacturer warranties also require the contractor to perform warranted repairs for the first few years after the install.
Contractor roof warranties typically do not cover materials and only cover workmanship.
