Type into a search engine just three little words, “How long does,” and autocomplete zips back with information about current events. Helpful, but what if your question was, “How long does a roof warranty last?” Ah, for that, you need a roofer.
Amazingly, and at a massive advantage for Twin Cities homeowners, roof warranties can last as long as you want. You choose a pricing level and literally buy your roof insurance (that’s essentially what a roof warranty is; an insurance policy) at a price point comfortable to you.
Two major roofing materials manufacturers, GAF and Owens Corning, offer various protection tiers. GAF gives you five levels:
- GAF Shingle and Accessory Limited Warranty
- GAF Roofing System Limited Warranty
- System Plus Limited Warranty
- Silver Pledge Limited Warranty
- Golden Pledge Limited Warranty
- Standard Product Limited Warranty
- System Protection Limited Warranty
- Preferred Protection Limited Warranty
- Platinum Protection Limited Warranty
In both cases, roofing material makers offer their strongest warranties only through their best installers. For example, Owens Corning’s best warranty — 50+ years’ coverage for just about every aspect of the shingle roof, including installation — is only available from an Owens Corning Roofing Platinum Contractor.
Midwest Roofing, Siding, and Windows, Inc. is a Platinum Contractor, so we can offer you the strongest possible roof warranties on Owens Corning materials.
Over on the GAF side, Midwest is a member of the elite President’s Club, and as a Master EliteⓇ roofer, can offer GAF’s longest, strongest warranty. The Golden Pledge Limited Warranty provides workmanship coverage that lasts for 20, 25, or 30 years (depending on the shingles you choose).
This method makes sense for homeowners and manufacturers. You want the very best product — installed by the very best installer — your budget will allow. A manufacturer cannot afford to insure contractors who perform poor installations.
Instead, GAF and Owens Corning put their high-stakes warranties in the hands of the highest-performing roofers. That means you get the best installation, with a contractor known for superior quality, of the best shingle products. We’re all in this together.
