Keep Yourself Covered

When investing in a new roof for your home, it’s essential to understand the warranty that comes with it. A roofing warranty can provide peace of mind and protection in case of unexpected problems or issues. In this post, we’ll explore the different types of roofing warranties and what you need to know about them.

Manufacturer Warranty

Most roofing materials come with a manufacturer’s warranty, which covers defects in the material itself. This type of warranty usually lasts for 20-50 years, depending on the material and the manufacturer. Manufacturer warranties typically only cover the cost of the material, not the cost of installation or labor.

Workmanship Warranty

A workmanship warranty covers the installation of the roof and the labor involved. This type of warranty is typically offered by the roofing contractor and can last anywhere from one to ten years. Workmanship warranties cover issues that arise from installation errors or problems caused by the contractor’s workmanship.

System Warranty

Some roofing manufacturers offer a system warranty, which covers both the materials and the installation. This type of warranty provides more comprehensive coverage and can last up to 50 years, depending on the manufacturer and the type of roofing system.

Transferable Warranty

A transferable warranty can be transferred to a new homeowner if you decide to sell your home. This type of warranty can increase the resale value of your home and provide added peace of mind to the new owner.

Always Do Your Reading!

It’s important to read and understand the details of your roofing warranty before making a purchase. Ask your roofing contractor for a copy of the warranty and take the time to read it carefully. If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to ask your contractor for clarification. By understanding your roofing warranty, you can protect your investment and ensure that your roof provides the protection and performance you need for years to come.

    After the strong winds last week we urgently needed a roof repair to several ridge tiles and leaky guttering. Called Windsor roofing who came straight out to look at the damage and came when said to make repairs. Great job done, very professional and helpful. Would use again without hesitation

    Got a quote before moving into a property in Birmingham, once moved in I called Martin to ask when he could begin. He was very responsive and answered any questions, started work within a few days, scaffolding up very quickly ready to begin. Did a combination of repairs we needed, very professional, great quality work, he explained everything he was doing and always showed me what he had done. Himself and his colleague were also very polite and friendly, especially with my 3 children running about in the garden having a nose. Would definitely recommend. Everything completed in a timely manner and also left clean and tidy.

    Martin fitted new fascia and guttering to my roof and re bedded the ridge tiles using a modern system, namely the Dry Ridge which doesn't need any cementing. Martin and his colleague were prompt, reliable really good workers. My roof is guaranteed for at last15 years cannot ask for more. Thank you Martin.

    Martin was very knowledgeable and professional. He arrived on time, and performed a high quality job. Moreover, he was very responsive to any queries that I had over text message. I would happily recommend to all.

    Although only a small job (one roof tile and a ridge tile) to repair the work was carried out quickly and to a high standard. Friendly service and polite behaviour both earn a recommendation.

    In the past, I've had a bad experience of cowboy builders who have given a 25 year guarantee but done a rubbish job and consequently gone out of business. I was therefore very cautious and had two other quotes and a number of "no shows" but Martin's quote was reasonable and he explained exactly what he would do. He was reliable, friendly and polite and obviously has pride in his workmanship. He provided photos at each stage of the process and left everything immaculate. I would definitely recommend him.
