The roof of your property protects everything else from the top down. If your roof fails or is damaged, not only your roof is destroyed, but countless other assets underneath it.

As an expert and experienced roofing company, we stand by our work and offer a roof warranty to back it up. Learn more about our roofing warranties at Nicholas Enterprise Roofing.

Let’s break down everything you need to know about your commercial roof warranty. It is important for every commercial building owner and manager to understand your roofing warranty. 

What Is a Roofing Warranty?

A roof warranty is a commitment from your manufacturer or installer, in this case, Nicholas Enterprise Roofing. Your warranty is your assurance that your new or updated roof will adhere to certain performance standards for a specified period of time. The warranty guarantees the roof’s labor and materials during that specified period. 

What is the Length of a Roofing Warranty?

The length of your warranty will depend on several roofing details, including the type of your roof, materials, and other factors. However, for a brand-new roof, a standard roof warranty is ten years.

When you are hiring a Chicago roofing company, it is important to ensure that they offer a warranty. These are the roofing details that some property owners overlook. There are several reasons why you need a roof warranty for your commercial or industrial property: 

Financial Security

As a business owner, we know that the economics of a roofing warranty are important to you. A roofing warranty is a financial safeguard if your roof needs repairs or to be replaced entirely. 

Increased Property Value 

A commercial roof with an active warranty can increase the resale value of your property. Potential buyers are more inclined to purchase a property with a roof that is protected by a warrant. 

Peace of Minds

There is no amount of money that can pay for peace of mind. If your roof requires service, repairs, maintenance, or even a replacement, your bottom line won’t be burdened by an unexpected expense.

Types of Commercial Roof Warranties

There are three different types of commercial roof warranties:  

Material Warranties 

A material warranty covers the roofing material. It is offered by the manufacturer and guarantees that your roof will not experience fabrication defects. A typical roof material warranty lasts between ten and 30 years, some premium materials are guaranteed for longer. Material warranties do not cover the labor cost to replace the defective material, or any issues related to poor workmanship or installation.

Workmanship Warranties 

A workmanship warranty is offered by the roofing contractor and covers issues that result from mistakes made during the installation. Typically, a workmanship warranty includes the cost of both the labor and materials needed to fix the problem.  

System Warranties

A system warranty is an all-inclusive warranty that covers both installation errors and manufacturing defects.
