Here at Trades Unlimited, we know that a new roof is a big investment. Protecting that investment with a great warranty is a crucial step in the roof replacement process. That's why we offer extensive warranties for the many kinds of roofs we replace. Below, discover what warranties should cover for different roofing materials and find out more about what our warranties can do for you.
Warranties for foam roofs should be dependent on the amount of foam and coating used when the roof is installed. In most cases foam roofs are installed with two coats of elastomeric roof coating, which equates to foam that's about one inch thick. If the roof is not recoated in 5 to 10 years, it will deteriorate and burn the foam when it becomes exposed. Additional structural integrity and strength can be achieved by installing more than one inch of foam. Trades Unlimited offers various warranties for foam roofs, depending on the thickness of the foam installed and the amount of coating applied.
Standard shingle manufacturer warranties begin to prorate after five years. The standard shingle manufacturer’s warranty is a gauge to use to determine the quality of the shingles. Most workmanship (installation error) warranties are issued by the company that installs the roof, like Trades Unlimited.
One of the most common misconceptions about tile roofs is that they're is “lifetime” roofs. While it is indeed true that the tile itself may last a lifetime, the materials under the tile, the flashing around penetrations, and the transition areas are the main factors involved when it comes to keeping your tile roof free from leaks. If underlayment materials, flashings and penetrations fail or deteriorate, your “lifetime” roof will leak. Trades Unlimited has warranties available for tile roofs that range from five to fifteen years and cover these additional areas.
