Key Features of GAF Warranties

The GAF warranty system is designed to offer peace of mind and assurance of quality to homeowners. The term “Lifetime” in the context of GAF warranties refers to the period as long as the original individual owner of a single-family detached residence owns the property where GAF products are installed. This extends to eligible second owners under certain conditions. However, for properties not fitting these criteria, Lifetime coverage does not apply. It’s important to note that Lifetime coverage on shingles mandates the use of GAF Lifetime shingles.

Differences Between Warranty Options

GAF provides several warranty options, each tailored to different needs and preferences:

  • GAF Shingle & Accessory Limited Warranty: Offers basic protection for a period of 10 years, covering manufacturing defects in GAF shingles and accessories.
  • GAF Roofing System Limited Warranty: A more comprehensive option, covering the entire roofing system for 50 years.
  • System Plus Limited Warranty: Enhances the coverage, including cost of installation labor for the lifetime of the shingles.
  • Silver Pledge Limited Warranty: Offers added workmanship coverage, including misapplication of shingles and accessories for 10 years.
  • Golden Pledge Limited Warranty: The most extensive option, covering misapplication of shingles, accessories, and flashings for up to 25/30 years.

Choosing the Best Warranty for Your Roof

Selecting the right warranty depends on various factors like your long-term plans for your home, the local climate and your budget. If you plan to stay in your home for many years, investing in a more comprehensive warranty like the Golden Pledge could be beneficial. However, if you’re looking for basic coverage, the GAF Shingle & Accessory Limited Warranty might suffice.

Understanding Workmanship Coverage

Workmanship coverage is crucial as it covers the installation process. This coverage is available through certain contractors, particularly for installations covered by GAF enhanced warranties. It’s vital to ensure that your contractor is certified by GAF to use this coverage.
