Roof Guaranteed…or is it? Part Four | Raise the Roof Blog!

Flat Roof warranties are probably the most relevant and realistic of all roof warranties – and ironically they are the most prone roofs to have issues! There are several things to look for and ask for with regard to your flat roof warranty…
1. Make sure you request an NDL Warranty – This stands for No Dollar Limit. There should not be a maximum out-of-pocket limit by the manufacturer.
2. Your flat roof warranty should be a “system warranty” covering ALL components of the roof system. Most flat roof warranties will exclude any material not manufactured by them.
3. Try to get at least 15 years, if not 20. The difference in fees is minimal.
4. Some manufacturers now offer 25 years for an additional fee.
5. Ask the installing contractor if they are willing to provide all required roof maintenance for the duration of their leak warranty. The contractor warranty is typically 3-5 years.

One caveat that most people do not know is that the installing contractor is on the hook 100% for the first Two years of the manufacturers warranty. This means that the manufacturer takes on No liability the first Two Years.

We hope this information is useful to you in some way, let us know if we can be of further help!
