GAF Residential Roofing Warranties
When it comes to roofing materials and warranties, one name stands out above the rest: General Aniline & Film or GAF. Known for its exceptional craftsmanship and innovative roofing solutions, GAF is the leading roofing manufacturer in North America. They have established the prestigious GAF Master Elite® contractor program to ensure homeowners have access to skilled and reputable roofing professionals like our technicians here at Hinkle Roofing.
GAF’s commitment to customer satisfaction extends to their comprehensive roofing warranties, which we offer. When you get a Hinkle Roofing warranty, you benefit from the customer-centric and comprehensive GAF warranty for protecting your investment.
As an esteemed GAF Master Elite® contractor, here are the types of GAF warranties we offer:
- GAF Shingle & Accessory Limited Warranty
Also known as the Standard Warranty, the Shingle & Accessory Limited Warranty is GAF’s basic warranty. It covers material defects and applies to all roof installations that use GAF materials, such as shingles and accessory products. The warranty will cover the replacement of the defective components. However, it does not cover workmanship or labor costs since non-GAF-certified contractors can install the materials.
The GAF Shingle & Accessory Limited warranty is a lifetime warranty of GAF parts but only applies to the original owners. It also comes with a 10-year Smart Choice Protection Period, which makes you eligible for 100% replacement of defective components during the term and reasonable costs of labor that the warranty term does not cover. It also comes with a 10-year Smart Choice Protection Period, 10 to 25 years Algae Warranty Term, and 15 years Wind Warranty Term.
- GAF System Plus® Limited Warranty
Your GAF roofing materials need to be installed by GAF-certified contractors to qualify for this warranty. As a GAF Master Elite® contractor, we offer it as our second type of Hinkle Roofing warranty, which covers GAF shingles and at least three accessory products.
Compared to the Standard Warranty, this lifetime warranty extends the Smart Choice Protection Period to 50 years. It includes coverage for roof tear-off, 25 years Algae Warranty Term, and Unlimited Wind Warranty Term. The warranty also applies to a second owner of the roof so long as the second owner notifies Hinkle Roofing within one year after the property transfer. We will notify GAF of the change in the ownership of the property and the limited warranty.
- GAF Golden Pledge® Limited Warranty
The Golden Pledge® Limited Warranty is GAF’s highest form of warranty. It has the same eligibility requirements as the System Plus® Limited Warranty and Smart Choice Protection Period of 50 years. It also includes a roof tear-off and disposal, 25 years Algae Warranty Term, and Unlimited Wind Warranty Term.
However, it is backed by a 25-year workmanship coverage or 30-year coverage if you install any of GAF’s Designer Series™ shingles. All labor costs will be covered when you make a claim, even if the original GAF-certified contractor is no longer in business. The Golden Pledge® Limited Warranty also includes a multi-point checkup by a GAF-certified inspector after installation, ensuring that your roof is built to withstand the test of time.
Keeping Your Hinkle Roofing Warranty Active
Enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing your warranty does not get voided for poor maintenance. Here is our 9-point maintenance plan to keep your warranty active:
- Keep detailed records of inspection reports, repair and maintenance bills, drawings, and specifications of roof construction.
- Conduct inspections annually to identify potential defects or installation issues before they become major problems.
- Inspect after severe weather events, such as storms or typhoons.
- Hire GAF-certified contractors to perform repairs using GAF materials.
- Remove debris and blockages regularly.
- Maintain metal components in rust-free condition.
- Inspect masonry for cracks, deteriorating sealants, loose sections, or poor joining.
- Ensure rooftop equipment, such as air conditioners, vents, screens, and skylights, are functioning correctly and not causing damage to your roofing system.
- Minimize rooftop traffic to only roof technicians.
