GAF offers some of the most stellar warranties in the industry. Their standard product guarantee is accessible when you hire any roofer that uses their products, but you need to hire a factory-certified roofing contractor to upgrade to stronger levels of coverage.
Here are some frequently asked questions about GAF warranties:
What Is the Smart Choice® Protection Period?
This provides extra coverage during the critical first years of your new roofing system’s life. If any of the covered components fails within this period, GAF will provide free replacement materials and reimburse the cost of roof repair. For architectural and designer shingles, the Smart Choice Protection Period is good for 10 years.
Why Is the Golden Pledge® Ltd. Warranty the Strongest?
This is the third and highest level of coverage offered by GAF. It extends the Smart Choice Protection Period to 50 years and covers the cost of any necessary tear-off and disposal services. Accessible only through a Master Elite™ roofer, it includes a 25-year workmanship warranty and coverage against misapplied flashings provided and backed by GAF.
How Can I Get Maximum Wind Coverage?
Any GAF warranty comes with wind coverage, but special installation is required to enjoy maximum protection against wind speeds of 130 mph. With key accessories and enough nails used on the shingles, your GAF warranty will cover restoration services to fix the wind-related damage.
Does GAF Provide Coverage Against Algae Discoloration?
All StainGuard®-labeled shingles and ridge cap shingles are guaranteed not to develop any discoloration with blue-green algae for 10 years.
Are GAF Warranties Transferable?
Any GAF warranty is transferable to the next owner of your home at no cost. If you decide to sell your property in the future, you can use it to sweeten the deal and gain leverage at the negotiating table.
