When it comes to roofing warranties, GAF is perhaps the most generous. For just a little extra, you can upgrade to the strongest guarantee and get all the benefits. Here are the key provisions that make GAF warranties stand out:
Smart Choice® Protection Period
This provides 100% manufacturing defect coverage, reimbursing the costs of replacement materials and labor to install them. In case of failure, GAF will pay for the roof repair. This non-prorated period length depends on your chosen GAF product, but it lasts anywhere from 10 to 50 years when you upgrade to a stronger warranty.
Maximum Wind Coverage
If you buy either Timberline® or Designer Lifetime shingles, you’ll get maximum wind coverage, provided you meet GAF’s special installation requirements. When installed using six nails with GAF Starter Strip products placed at the eaves and rakes, your shingles will be covered up to 130 mph wind speed.
If you choose the Golden Pledge® Ltd. Warranty, you’ll get protection against misapplication of covered GAF products and flashings. The option to upgrade to this stellar guarantee is only available if you hire one of the few Master Elite™ roofers, like DryTech Roofing.
StainGuard Plus™ Protection
GAF shingles labeled with StainGuard Plus with time-release technology comes with 25-year limited warranty against algae discoloration with a non-prorated period of 10 years. In case of pronounced blue-green algae discoloration, GAF will either pay for the cost of commercial shingle cleaning or replacement of discolored shingles.
Tear-Off and Disposal Cost Reimbursement
The Golden Pledge Ltd. Warranty makes necessary tear-off and disposal costs reimbursable during its non-prorated Smart Choice Protection period. Experienced roofers would say that receiving payments to offset these charges brings great savings for the years to come.
