Three Warranty Tips from a Professional Roofer in South Florida

Warranties come in all shapes and sizes. Some people have warranties on their vehicles, others have warranties on electronics, and even roofing material manufacturers have warranties on their products. However, most homeowners don’t always take full advantage. Some homeowners don’t even know how long their warranties extend! If you’re wondering about your own roofing warranty, you can pair up with a professional roofer to tell you more. At Chase Roofing, we’ve listed three of the most important warranty tips we see most property owners facing.

Annual Inspection 

If something were to happen to your roof, chances are the first person you’d reach out to is your insurance company. However, what most people don’t know is that an insurance company will very rarely hand out financial assistance if the homeowner did not perform an inspection by a professional roofer. This is because the insurance company could claim neglect, or forgetfulness. To ensure that your warranties and insurance policies stay effective, have an experienced roofing company come to your home or business once a year to perform a simple inspection.

Warranties Don’t Transfer 

Another commonly unknown fact is that warranties do not transfer from one homeowner to the other, should the home be sold. Many people don’t even think to ask this question until they see their roof is having some material defects. Oftentimes, it is too late. Fortunately, if homeowners inquire about this transfer ahead of time, they can pay a small fee, followed by an inspection.

Natural Disasters Don’t Count 

If you thought that the manufacturer warranty would qualify in the eyes of a named storm, think again. Manufacturer companies make it very clear that they are not paying for what Mother Nature brings in full force. It’s important to be aware of what your warranty and homeowner’s insurance covers, so that you can be prepared in the event of a tropical storm or hurricane.
