A roof replacement could be the change you’ve been waiting to make in the new year. With every new roof, of course, we can promise a fantastic GAF warranty.
About GAF Roofs
Don’t get us wrong – GAF products are made and installed with care, but you can never be sure what the future holds. You don’t want to risk the sort of damage that may occur over time or from a natural disaster. A roof warranty is, therefore, a necessary precaution that you deserve to take.
Manufacturing defects and workmanship are both covered by the following warranties.
GAF Shingles and Accessories
A lifetime limited warranty that covers any manufacturing defect is available with the purchase of GAF shingles and at least three qualifying accessory products. The most common product you’ll hear us talk about and recommend for your new roof is the GAF Timberline shingles.
The included lifetime limited warranty has 15 years of 130mph maximum wind speed coverage. Your wind warranty may vary slightly at higher levels of coverage, as well as based on the type of shingles used in your GAF roofing system.
GAF Smart Choice Protection Period
The “Smart Choice Protection Period” refers to the period of time during which your warranty is non prorated. The GAF website has a more detailed breakdown of how this is calculated.
GAF System Plus Limited Warranty
This is the first step up when you’re looking to upgrade the warranty on your GAF roofing system. It extends your Smart Choice Protection Period from 10 years to 50 years. You’re covered for tear-off, too.
The thing about this particular warranty (and all subsequent tiers of GAF roof warranty) is that your roofing system needs to be installed by a GAF Certified roofing contractor – or a GAF Master Elite contractor, which is exactly what Quality First happens to be.
GAF Silver Pledge Limited Warranty
The GAF Silver Pledge warranty adds 10 years of workmanship coverage. It also covers product disposal when necessary.
Of equal importance, the 50 year Smart Choice Protection Period is locked in place.
GAF Golden Pledge Limited Warranty
This is it! The GAF Golden Pledge Limited Warranty is when GAF brings out the lifetime warranty with the most coverage. The workmanship coverage can last for 20 years, 25 years, or even 30 years depending on the type of shingle being covered.
Algae and Wind, Too!
Depending on the type of shingles you are protecting, the coverage can vary for your algae warranty.
Maximum wind speed coverage of 130 mph can be increased to encompass no limit for a period of 15 years. (This wind warranty, the “Wind Proven Limited Wind Warranty”, only covers LayerLock-labeled shingles.)
Transfer Your Warranty
Whether it’s a GAF shingle accessory or an entire GAF roofing system, transferring your warranty is not only possible, it’s also easy.
If you sell your house, GAF will allow the next owner to inherit your warranty term. Please do keep in mind that these warranties only cover manufacturer defects, as well as any potential problems that occur during installation – nothing else.
GAF Certified Contractors Aren’t A Dime A Dozen
For GAF to certify a roofing contractor, they have to be the best of the best. Furthermore, only 2% of roofers in the US are GAF Master Elite roofing professionals. This certification, renewed every year, comes from maintaining a standard of excellence. Quality First has held the Master Elite roofing certification for 12 consecutive years. Your new roof will be in good hands!
