Your roofing warranty provides an extra layer of protection to your investment in case of material defects or a flawed installation. However, your roofing warranty can be voided due to several factors. Gresham Roofing and Construction, the premier roofing contractor in the area, highlights ways you can inadvertently void your roofing warranty.
1. Insufficient attic ventilation. Prior to having a new roof installed, you’ll want to make you’re your attic has proper ventilation. This prevents heat and moisture buildup in the space, which can lead to mold and rot, damaging the roofing materials above.
2. Working with an inexperienced roof installer. Roofing manufacturers include material and labor coverage within their warranty. To avoid voiding your coverage, make sure to work only with a roofer who is factory certified by the manufacturer. Gresham Roofing and Construction is certified by three leading roof manufacturers–GAF, Owens Corning and Versico. This not only allows us to install these brands’ high-quality roofing materials, but also authorizes us to offer some of the strongest warranties in the business.
3. Installing an antenna or satellite on the roof. Anything that involves drilling holes into the roof could potentially void your warranty because this can make the roof more vulnerable to leaks. Always review your warranty closely before having any work done on your roof.
4. Investing in a re-roof. With a re-roof, new shingles are installed directly on top of the old ones rather than removing the old shingles first This can lead to many issues over time because it puts extra weight on the roof. Aside from voiding the warranty, a re-roof can also result in poor attic ventilation.
