The job is done, the crew has cleaned up and left, and the newly installed roof is beautiful. Now that the job is complete, it is important to understand how your new asset is protected.
At Dependable Construction, we are proud to stand behind our work. We pledge to give our customers a quality product that is installed correctly and will perform for the expected life of the roof. This does not mean that the roof may not need regular maintenance throughout its usable life. Just like a vehicle needs a tune-up, oil change or inspection, your roof needs regular maintenance and upkeep to maximize its lifespan.
We know that our customers want and deserve reassurance that the roof will perform after installation, so once the job is closed out, we issue a closing package for the roof, which includes the material warranty.
The workmanship warranty states that from the date of installation for a set number of years, (typically 10 years), there will not be any leaks caused from original application errors of any approved roofing materials provided and installed by our company. Dependable Construction will repair, at no cost to the customer, any leaks which are deemed to be caused by our workmanship.
The warranty is limited to roof repairs only and does not cover any damages to the property that are caused by acts of God. This means that forces such as tornadoes, hurricanes, hail, lightning, earthquakes, driving rain and the likes that are outside of Dependable Construction’s control are not covered.
Material failure is another issue that is not covered under the workmanship warranty, although it IS covered by the manufacturer’s warranty that is delivered through the mail within 7 days after the file is closed.
If you have any questions about your workmanship warranty, please feel free to speak with one of our estimators before, during or after your purchase.
*NOTE: Dependable Construction does provides workmanship warranties for other roofing systems, but this blog specifically addresses the coverage available to our asphalt shingle customers.
