The Shingle Roof Warranty
Below We Will Go Over The Types Of Shingle Roof Warranties
Welcome to the world of shingle roof warranties! Here we’ll discuss what makes these warranties so important for homeowners and how to ensure you get the best protection for your roof. We’ll also discuss some of the common types of warranties offered, what they cover, and how they differ from each other.
A shingle roof warranty is a contract between you and the roofing company that guarantees your roof will be free of defects for a specified length of time. These warranties can last up to 10 years., although some extended warranties can last up to 25 years. The warranty covers any defects in the materials or workmanship of the roof installation, including leaks, cracked or damaged shingles, and other issues.
When choosing a roofing warranty, it’s important to understand what type of coverage you’re getting and what limitations are in place. Some warranties may only cover certain types of damage, while others can cover a broad range of potential problems. It’s also important to understand any exclusions or limitations that may be included in the warranty, such as coverage for storm damage or certain types of repairs.
The Shingle Manufacturer’s Material Warranty
–> A manufacturer’s warranty is a guarantee provided by the roofing manufacturer. These warranties typically cover the cost of materials and labor to repair or replace defective shingles due to manufacturing defects. Some manufacturers offer different levels of coverage, depending on the type of shingles you purchase.
For more information you can visit the warranty page for one of our shingle roofing suppliers like Tamko.
The Contractor’s Labor Warranty
–> A contractor’s warranty is a guarantee provided by the roofing contractor. These warranties typically cover the cost of labor to repair or replace any shingles that are damaged due to installation errors. Contractor’s warranties are usually shorter in duration than manufacturer’s warranties, but they still provide valuable protection for your roof. Our labor warranty on metal roof systems is for a period of 5 years.

Below We Will Go Over The Types Of Metal Roof Warranties
A metal roof warranty is a contract between the manufacturer and the purchaser that guarantees the performance and durability of a metal roof system. The warranty generally covers defects in material, workmanship, and performance of the roof system, as well as any other specified conditions. The warranty typically covers a certain period of time, ranging up to 50 years, and may include additional coverage for labor costs, material costs. Warranties are designed to protect the purchaser from a defective roof, and provide peace of mind that the roof will last for a long time.
The Metal Roof Manufacturer’s Material Warranty
–> A 24ga standing seam metal roof material warranty typically covers the roofing material against defects in workmanship, material, and corrosion. It usually lasts between 20-30 years and is transferable to a new homeowner if the property is sold. Depending on the manufacturer’s warranty, it may also cover fading, chalking, and rusting of the metal roofing material.
–> The 24ga standing seam metal roof paint finish is a durable and attractive option for metal roofs. It is the standard for a standing seam (concealed fastener ) metal roof system and is designed to withstand extreme temperatures and weather conditions. The Kynar 500 paint finish is designed to provide long-term protection and is resistant to corrosion, fading, and chalking. It is also fairly easy to maintain and can last for decades if properly cared for. The Kynar 500 standing seam paint finish has a 30 year warranty against corrosion, fading, and chalking. This is a prorated warranty.
–> The 26ga exposed fastener metal roof material comes with a 20 year warranty on the material and a 30 year warranty on the paint finish. This type of warranty usually includes protection against fading, chalking, cracking and peeling due to normal weathering conditions. It also provides coverage in case there are any manufacturing defects that cause premature failure or deterioration of the coating system.

The Contractor’s Labor Warranty
–> A contractor’s warranty is a guarantee provided by the roofing contractor. These warranties typically cover the cost of labor to repair metal roof panels that are damaged due to installation. Note repair can mean touchup paint or installing a new panel. Contractor’s warranties are usually shorter in duration than manufacturer’s warranties, but they still provide valuable protection for your roof. Our labor warranty on metal roof systems is for a period of 5 years.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
A new roof is a big investment and people always have a lot of questions before making any decisions, below are some of the more common ones…

Unless you’re a trained roofing professional, most roofing work shouldn’t be carried out yourself. Also keep in mind that most manufacturers of products used in the roof repair will not warranty those products unless a licensed professional carries out the work. The other thing to keep in mind is that working on a roof can be very dangerous, so is it really worth risking your health in order to save money? JK Johns is family owned and operated, we have been in the roofing business for over 35 years. To get started you can give us a call (352 754-8600)or stop by our office located at 3323 Mustang Dr. in Brooksville, FL. 34604.
To get started just give us a call. We will answer any questions you have. Set up a time to come out and measure your roof and see how much material your roof will need and if there are any special conditions. We will then work up an proposal for your new roof. Today with email we can have your proposal over to you in a timely matter.
You will need a permit for your new roof. Not to worry as we will take care of pulling your permit. In order to pull your permit we will need a Notice Of Commencement (NOC). We will send you an NOC and you will need to fill it out and get it back to us. We take the NOC to the courthouse and file it. The courthouse will give us the proper paper work to take to the permit office and pull your permit. Once we have your permit we can set a date to start your new roof.
There are many steps when re-roofing your home.
- We have a dump trailer dropped off.
- The roofing material will be delivered.
- We remove your existing roof.
- Replace any damaged/rotten wood.
- Re-Nail roof deck to bring up to code.
- Install new underlayment.
- Install new lead boots, GRV roof vents,
- Install new roof shingles.
- If in the contract we will install new ridge venting and skylights, gutter.
- Clean up debris and remove dump trailer.
Since your roof is constantly exposed to the outside elements, it means your roof is going to degrade over time. The rate at which it degrades will depend on a number of factors. These include; the quality of the original materials used and the workmanship, the amount of abuse it has to take from the elements, how well the roof is maintained and the design of the roof. Most roofing contractors will quote around 20 years for a well-built and well-maintained roof, but that can never be guaranteed because of the above factors. Our advice is to always keep your roof well maintained and get regular inspections to make sure it lasts as long as possible.
Depending on what county you live in your roof will get one or two inspections. Some counties require an affidavit stated that the roof deck was re-nailed to bring up to code. All roofs will receive a final roof inspection from the county.
