Warranties of Four Seasons Builders

What Is Included In A Standard Roof Warranty?

There are really only 2 warranties you need to consider when you have your roof done – the manufacturer’s warranty that covers the roofing materials and the roofing contractor’s warranty that covers workmanship.

Manufacturer Warranty

Innovation and years of research that has been conducted is largely responsible for the topnotch roofing systems that are currently being installed. The newest technology of roofing systems that we use constitute of synthetic materials, plastics, rubber and modified asphalt. These innovative systems we use has made it possible for Four Seasons Builders LLC in Dallas to offer warranties that last longer on roofing material. Some of the things our manufacturer warranty covers includes defects in the roofing materials. This is often covered over a period of between 5 and 20 years and determined by the material in question. A material-only warranty requires that the manufacturer replaces the roofing material that does not live up to expectation.

Roofing Contractor Warranty

During the installation of your roof, it is ideal that the contractor offers you warranty on the workmanship. Four Seasons Builders LLC in Dallas “Roofing Contractor Warranty” is made to give homeowners coverage on matters related to the installation procedure. This warranty covers you for 30 years to a lifetime coverage on roof shingles and five year labor warranty. It is vital to ensure that the roofing contractor is clear in stating the terms of the warranty and they must also have the warranty down in writing. The warranty entails the necessary and recommended maintenance responsibilities of the owner during the period of time the roof is covered by the warranty. Other contractors outside of our company usually only offer between 1 and 2 years of coverage and we offer considerably longer warranties.

Standard Roof Warranty – What it does not include

Quite a number of roofing consumers/customers tend to believe that their long term standard roof warranty is an all-inclusive insurance policy that caters for any of their roofing problem no matter the cause or damage. It is noteworthy that the roofing warranty does not guarantee that you will be free of leaks on the roofing system. The warranty only provides that the manufacturer or contractor will repair leaks that are as a result of certain causes, and this applies even to the most comprehensive warranties.

  • Skylights
  • Oil and grease spills
