Roof and Shingle Warranties
Serving Vancouver, WA and Portland, OR
Commercial property owners need to understand the roof and shingle warranties associated with the particular type of roofing material they have installed on their buildings. Whether the company has a tight building maintenance budget or considerable leeway for unexpected expenses, the types of large roofs often found on commercial properties can be disruptive to the bottom line if they are damaged or defective. A warranty from the manufacturer of the shingles or the roofing contractor can help.
Roof and Shingle Warranties Coverage
Most companies who make asphalt or composite shingles offer a complete warranty on material and manufacturing defects only. This means that the shingles themselves will be replaced if they are delivered to the property with pre-existing damage or structural defects.

In some cases, the shingles are covered for a period of some years, but the potential returns for defectiveness decrease as the years go by. For example, if there is something wrong with the shingles before they are affixed to the roof, the company will replace them or pay their original cost. However, if the shingles are installed on the roof but fail disastrously the year or two later, the cost will be only partially refunded.
This process frequently involves an on-site inspection of the commercial property’s roof and the questionable shingles before any money is paid out. The property owner gets nothing if they were installed incorrectly.

A better bet might be to get a warranty from the roofing contractor. Reputable roofers may offer guarantees against their labor or material costs if something goes wrong with the old roof removal or replacement.
The combination of roof and shingle warranties like these should give the person who owns the commercial buildings peace of mind.
