GAF Life Time Shingle Warranty
GAF is now only selling shingles that have a lifetime warranty. GAF is an American Shingle company that JM of New Bedford has been using for more than 20 years now. They offer great service and a great product. CertainTeed is another popular American Shingle company and they have also begun to only make shingles with a life time warranty. The warranty is actually for fifty years, the shingles will not be prorated until the 51st year. The warranty is fully transferrable, if you decide to sell the house within the first 20 years. If at any point there is a leak, or the shingles need to be replaced, GAF will personally come down to inspect it, and will pay for the labor and materials to get the roof fixed.
In order to receive the lifetime warranty, the roof must be installed by a certified contractor. (JM of New Bedford is a certified contractor.) The roof must also be installed with the appropriate items, such as ice and water barrier, starter courses, etc. That way the roof is installed as a complete leak-less roofing system. A warranty must then be filed with GAF through the contractor.
Taking advantage of this warranty is a must. Having that sort of guarantee for that length of time is unheard of in the roofing business. Call us today at 508-992-5770 to get a free estimate on your next lifetime guaranteed roof.
