GAF is synonymous with industry-leading warranties, inspiring confidence and providing peace of mind. Today, Century Roofing and Siding answers the biggest questions about the levels of warranty coverage North America’s leading roofing brand offers:
What Does GAF’s Smart Choice® Protection Period Mean?
This special provision will protect your pocket from repairs due to manufacturing defects during its non-prorated period. It entitles you to free new materials as compensation for the affected, covered components. It also renders the cost of labor reimbursable too. Honest roofing and siding replacement specialists would say that most brands aren’t generous enough to pay for the installation fee.
Do They Come With Workmanship Coverage?
GAF’s base warranty doesn’t include insurance against installation errors since it’s the contractor’s job to offer such. But it’s stronger product guarantees provide protection from roofer mistakes too. The Golden Pledge® Ltd. Warranty covers workmanship for 25 years, provided you hire a Master Elite® contractor.
Can You Upgrade to Stronger GAF Warranties?
Experienced roofing and siding installation experts, including Century Roofing and Siding, would tell you that certification is necessary to access GAF’s higher levels of warranty. However, hiring an ordinary GAF-certified contractor won’t suffice to unlock all the bells and whistles; working with a Master Elite contractor is the only way.
In addition to the privilege of being able to upgrade to GAF’s top warranty, you can enjoy other practical benefits too. A powerful GAF warranty can increase your property’s value because it’s transferable to the next owner of your home. It can also make you eligible for an exclusive 40-point preventive inspection.
How to Get Maximum Wind Coverage
Like high-quality vinyl siding panels, GAF’s asphalt shingles become more hurricane-resistant with advanced installation practices. The brand increases its wind coverage when six nails are used per shingle, and GAF Starter Strip products are installed at the rakes and eaves.
