Most customers ask.... What is the warranty on the products we are installing? Is there an installation warranty and manufacturer warranty? How long will a shingle last in this climate, and what are the payment terms?
Warranties on products
Warranties on products vary dramatically. Some products have a 30 to 50 year warranty, and some products only have a 10 year manufacturer warranty.
The Difference between warranties
Laminated shingle manufacturer warranties vary from 30 to 50 years. So GVRD Roofing typically will warranty or installations based on quality of shingle. Torch on warranties typically are 10 to 12 years. and we usually match our installation warranties with those of manufacturer.
Shingles vs Metal and composite products
In our Vancouver climate we receive a lot of rain. So I am told by our rep's that asphalt shingles won't last as long. Most products are tested in warmer climates, so a 30 year asphalt roof typically will last 20 to 25 years if installed correctly.
Metal roofs when installed correctly will outlast you and I, and composite roofs will last longer than asphalt roofs.
