Understanding the Three Warranty Packages from GAF®

Let’s face it; installing a new roof will cost a fair bit, so it is only natural to expect that roof to last. In some cases, however, certain issues may arise during the manufacturing or installation process that could affect your roof’s expected life span.

Home Improvement

Rectifying these issues on your own can be expensive, which is why you need to understand the warranty options available to you before you make a purchase. As one of the GAF Master Elite™ roofing contractors in Norwalk, CT, Vinylume offers three types of warranty packages for your roofing. These are:

GAF Shingle & Accessory Warranty

Also known as Standard, this basic warranty is available on any roof installation in your home. It has a 100% coverage period for material defects and labor installation costs for up to 10 years. Anyone can install the products under this warranty, so there is no workmanship coverage.

GAF Weather Stopper System Plus Limited Warranty

This package is only available through a GAF certified installer. Also known as the Better warranty, System Plus covers material defects for up to 50 years, and up to 20 years on 3-Tab shingles. It also covers all the installation labor costs for the lifetime of the roof.

With this package, we can offer 100% workmanship coverage for up to two years. This also covers the misapplication of certain flashings for that same period and the tear-off costs for material defects.

GAF Golden Pledge Limited Warranty

This is GAF’s Best warranty, and it’s only available through a GAF Master Elite Roofing Contractor. It covers 100% of material defects for up to 50 years and up to 20 years on 3-Tab shingles. Golden Pledge also covers 100% of installation labor costs for the lifetime of the roof while 3-Tab shingles come with 25-30 years for labor costs. For workmanship and misapplication of flashings, you can expect up to 25 years coverage from GAF. Tear-off and disposal costs also fall under this package. Topping this warranty is an exclusive 40-point factory inspection, which aims to boost problem prevention efforts.

For your peace of mind, all these packages come with wind coverage of up to 130 mph category 3 hurricane speed. Let Vinylume install your roofing in Norwalk, CT so you can enjoy any of these warranties. In addition, we provide our own Triple Protection Warranty, which includes a 20-year installation guarantee.
