What are your options for commercial roof warranties when you hire us to replace your business’s roof?
Warranties are important to business owners and homeowners alike. They’re a contract agreement that shows how a service company will correct installation errors if they arise. In 2023, there’s no such thing as a reputable contract construction company, especially in roofing, that doesn’t offer warranties.
How do we approach this important topic at The Roofing Center?
Commercial Roof Warranties: Service & Manufacturer Guarantees
Like other exterior work on homes or businesses (siding, doors, windows, etc.), roofing projects involve two warranty types: service and manufacturer. The first refers to the work we do putting everything together for you. If there’s an error or imperfection, and you find it after we leave, this lets you call us back for an adjustment.
Then, there are factory or manufacturer warranties that handle the material side of the roofing project. If, for example, you get a shingled roof, but some defective shingles fall apart prematurely, you may be eligible for a free replacement. Both warranty types create accountability and provide an incentive for the installer and manufacturer to do a good job.
How Much do Commercial Roof Warranties Cover?
While we can’t make specific guarantees in a generalized blog post, there are some things you can expect to find in a typical roof replacement warranty. Manufacturers don’t offer terms as long as they once did, but you can usually find coverage for about 15 years on new roofing materials.
Especially with the manufacturing of shingled roofs, there’s a lot of competition (Owens Corning, Malarkey, GAF, etc.), so terms vary substantially. They each offer different product lines, which carry varying levels of warranty coverage.
On the service side, most contractors will offer a minimum of two-year service coverage. This means that during that time frame, a commercial roofing customer can contact the service company for repairs if they discover problems.

How to Identify a Reliable Roofing Contractor?
Aside from warranties, what are the other ways to determine whether you’re working with a quality roofing contractor? This is crucial if you’re a serious business owner because selecting the wrong service company could leave you with subpar results, worthless warranties, wasted time, and lost money.
These are the important considerations for hiring a roofing contractor.
- Outstanding Reputation – As you can tell, we’re a business, which means we know the importance of having an excellent reputation with our clients. Reliable contractors are the ones who have accreditation with the Better Business Bureau (BBB), and high scores on consumer evaluation platforms like Google Reviews or GuildQuality.
- Evidence of Exemplary Service – You should always ask to see what your roofer has already done for previous clients. If they can’t show you photos of their best roof jobs, then you should find someone else.
- Deadline Commitment – While there are no guarantees of instant results, a roofing business has to prove they can handle the work in a timely fashion. You should expect the contractor to provide detailed project timelines and cost estimates.
