One of the many reasons to avoid storm chasers is that they don’t offer you good warranties or provide any after-sales support. Storm chasers simply perform substandard work, take your money and then disappear. When it comes to roof repairs or roof replacements, you should always work with established roofing companies instead because of their warranties. But how can you tell if they offer good warranties?
Study Your Warranty
You’ll need to study your roofing warranty regularly so you know what it covers and what it excludes. In general, a roof warranty covers leak repairs caused by poor workmanship or by defective roofing materials. Typical warranty exclusions include damage from poor maintenance, extreme weather and disasters. Read your warranty, and look for the things you need to do to keep your coverage.
Hire the Right Contractor
The best way to get the most from your warranty is to take care of your roof. This includes scheduling regular roof maintenance and hiring the right contractor for your roofing projects. The things you need to look for in roof repair companies include experience and certifications. Many roofing manufacturers have developed rating and recognition programs for contractors that they trust. Manufacturer certifications are a good sign of quality.
Verify Your Warranty
Once you’ve hired a roofing company, it’s good practice to call the roofing manufacturer and make sure that the company is authorized. You should also talk to the manufacturer and make sure that the warranty offered by the roofing company is genuine. Some contractors offer their own warranties instead of a roofing manufacturer’s so you should make sure that you are getting the right one.
