Any contractor can install a roof. However, only industry accredited roofing contractors can offer fully vendor-backed comprehensive warranties, up to 50 years. We are certified and therefore able to offer the best warranty protection in the industry, known as SureStart Plus.
All new roofs come with a 10-year comprehensive warranty package at no additional cost. This includes:
- A 10-year material warranty covering manufacturer defects in materials
- Our exclusive additional 10-year Workmanship warranty covering all labor costs
Another key feature is that this warranty is 100% transferable and backed by CertainTeed.

Know the facts about Warranties and Workmanship.
Above all, we value honesty and integrity (hence our mission statement for 50 years: “No Salesmen. No Gimmicks. Quality Roofing”).
No matter which roofing contractor you choose, we want to be sure you have what you need to make the best and most informed decision possible, regardless of whomever you choose as your roofing contractor. That’s why we’ve added this brief “Warranty 101” section to our website.
You’ve probably heard a lot of sales hype and terms tossed around. Warranties are important, but not all warranties are the same. Above all, no matter who you select as your roofing contractor, we want to help you understand.
Here is what you need to know:
There are two types of warranties:
- Non-Prorated warranties are generally the best. In a non-prorated warranty, a company will replace or repair a defective product, free of charge. E.g.The warranty covers 100% of the repair of your dishwasher.
- Prorated warranties on the other hand may cover the replacement of a part, but do not cover labor and other costs.
E.g. The warranty covers the defective pump in your dishwasher, but you need to pay $150 in labor.
Our warranties cover 100% of materials and repairs. No surprises. No fine print.
Be sure your roofing contractor includes a Workmanship guarantee.
A Workmanship guarantee (a.k.a Workmanship warranty) guarantees that the work was performed correctly and any mistakes will be covered by the contractor.
E.g. The plumber who installed the dishwasher didn’t do it right and it leaks. But the dishwasher itself isn’t broken.
Ask the roofing contractor if they have a workmanship warranty.
- How many years does the warranty last?
- Is it transferrable?
- Specifically, what does the warranty cover?
- Very importantly, what are the exclusions?
- Who will back your warranty if you are no longer in business?
Our Workmanship guarantee is 10-years, fully inclusive, and is backed by a national vendor, CertainTeed.
Industry Certification & Experience is important.
It is important to realize roofing contractors have various levels of experience. Of course, you want to select an experienced roofing contractor who is well-established with a proven track record and positive references. Not all roofing contractors are certified.
Industry Certification in any profession guarantees that the contractor is properly trained, tested, and they continue to meet the highest standards. Ultimately, this means that if for any reason, the original contractor who performed the work is no longer available, then the warranty and labor will be covered by the supplier.
Our work is 100% backed by Saint-Gobain, a multinational corporation founded in 1665.
