Many consumers think of extended warranties as an unnecessary expense. These are usually offered on almost everything, from cars to kitchen appliances, with consumers signing up on them because of fear or emotion.
While it is true that such warranties come with some additional costs, there are certain instances in which solid warranty coverage is required and can be used to one’s advantage. One of those is roofing. Here’s a closer look.
Peace of Mind
It can cost you an extra amount, but having the current warranty of your shingle roof extended helps you avoid the financial strain and anxiety that comes with unexpected repairs. It will cover any costs involving your roofing system; if the roof can’t be fixed with simple repairs, the warranty will cover for its replacement.
Efficient Work from the Pros
You may have heard unfortunate instances where some homeowners got ripped off following a roof repair or replacement simply because there’s no warranty to cover such expenses. Extended warranties for roofing systems help allay these fears and concerns for customers. Local roofers offering these warranties have incentives to perform top-notch roofing work.
No Time Wasted
A roofing system that doesn’t have a warranty makes it hard for you when an unexpected repair or replacement comes. Searching for the right roofing materials, as well as a reliable roofing contractor to do work on a metal roof, can take up time. Having an extended warranty, however, prevents such a situation from occurring.
Who Can Offer Extended Roofing Warranties?
Both the roofing manufacturer and local contractor can offer extended roofing warranties. They’re willing to stand behind their work, and while the terms may vary depending on the roofing brand, you can expect the extended warranty to be better than the standard choice.
