All of the major shingle manufacturers (Owens Corning, GAF, Certainteed, Tamko) offer extended manufacturer warranties on their materials. The manufacturers mostly limited the ability to offer these warranties to their upper tier contractors. The reason for limiting the availability to their Preferred Contractors is simply that the manufacturer has vetted the contractor and knows that the contractor has the capacity to perform quality work.
Camko Roofing is an Owens Corning Preferred Contractor and a GAF Certified Contractor.
As an Owens Corning Preferred Contractor in Huntsville, Alabama, Camko Roofing offers all of our clients a Preferred Warranty. The Preferred Warranty gives the homeowner a 50-year, non-prorated material warranty on the shingles and all of the roof accessories. The Preferred Warranty also gives the homeowner peace of mind by including a 10-year workmanship warranty, backed up by the biggest name in the industry, Owens Corning.
The benefit to this is that instead of having a material warranty that the coverage plummets on after 5-10 years, the Preferred Warranty covers you 100% for the next 50 years! Whether the granules start falling off of the shingles, the shingles "de-laminate", or the adhesive bonds do not hold up... YOU ARE PROTECTED! The warranty also includes protection against algae stains for a certain period of time.
Unfortunately, there are a lot of contractors out there that do not do great work. Also, most roofing companies are out of business within 3 years. When it comes to the workmanship warranty, Owens Corning is putting their good name on our workmanship. Essentially, OC guarantees that the work performed by Camko Roofing is quality, top-of-the-line work. Let's say that for some reason one of our crews did a poor job installing your roof. There are leaks in your roof and the shingles are sliding off the house. You call us only to realize that we are no longer in business. Number is out of service. Office is empty. You have a few thousand dollars worth of repair work that must be done and you are left holding the bag....
This is not the case when you have the Preferred Warranty from Owens Corning and Camko! If Camko is out of business or simply will not back up our work (which would not happen), you simply give Owens Corning a call. The Owens Corning representative will tell you to call any OC contractor that you choose and have them fix or replace the roof. Then, Owens Corning pays the contractor directly!
You are not out of pocket hundreds or thousands of dollars. What would have happened if you were in this situation and did not have that warranty?
There are always odd things that happen with roofing and insurance claims as well. It is a regular problem that someone calls us out to inspect their roof for wind damage. Often, when the insurance comes out to inspect it and file the claim, the adjuster says that they will not pay for the damage and call it "improper installation", blaming the contractor that installed the roof. What do you do in this situation? Again, if you had the workmanship Preferred Warranty, this is not an issue. High nailed shingles, not enough nails? Whatever the problem is, Owens Corning is going to make it right for you. Now, you have saved yourself from having to come out-of-pocket to replace your roof.
If you have any questions about warranties, give Camko Roofing a call.
