Protect Yourself: The Importance of a Good Roofing Warranty

WARRANTY When it comes to building, there are many aspects to juggle simultaneously to ensure it is a success, such as getting materials, finding a reputable builder, and guaranteeing the site is ready for what is to come.

A homeowner has to consider a simple question: What can make this entire process a smooth one? There are tons of facets that point to a builder’s pedigree, mostly coming from word-of-mouth or online reviews. However, there is another and more prevalent way…

A good business will guarantee its work, and a great roofing company will provide a variety of roofing warranties. Offering a warranty for certain aspects of the process presents a great image for the company and gives peace of mind to the customer. A roofing warranty ensures the highest level of work/care in the process, ranging from how the business operates to the materials used in the roofing job. Taking into account what each of these warranties will provide, and knowing what to look for, will point a homeowner in the right direction.

A Warranty for the Business

WorkSafe BCCompanies in Vancouver, and British Columbia as a whole, can provide certain warranties for their business. Employers have to register with Worksafe BC, also known as the Worker’s Compensation Board, in accordance with the standards of our province.

This protects employees from any injury that befalls them. Beyond this, a company can show that they are in good standing by building their reputation with the Better Business Bureau. This organization accredits businesses that have demonstrated good practices and great customer service. Finding a company with both these accreditations is a great start, but there is a lot more that can be done.

A Warranty for the Materials

A roofing company can go above and beyond with its warranties by ensuring that materials and labour are both protected.

There are several types and Absolute Roof Solutions offer all of these:

  • CertainTeed: A specific roofing warranty that applies to CertainTeed products and is only given to businesses that have attained Shingle Master status.
  • Material Warranty: A manufacturer may give a limited warranty for its materials, but a great business will extend the guarantee for up to ten years for the job.
  • Labour Warranty: Being able to ensure that the builder’s business stays solvent grants the biggest peace of mind for homeowners. Many things can go wrong and having a company that will work to fix any leaks or installation issues can make all the difference.
