Roofing Warranties

A manufacturers warranty on roofing materials will give you an idea of your roof’s expected lifetime. Twenty years is a likely minimum, but a longer-lasting roof is typically a better investment. Some roofs come with a guarantee against fungus and algae, which may be useful in our typically wet climate. Yet, this guarantee may be limited to only 10 years.
