Frequently Asked Questions About Roof Warranties

Are roof warranties important?
A new Columbia roofing system is a big investment, typically involving thousands of your hard-earned dollars and lasting 25, 30, 40 years or more. As with any big investment, knowing in advance what your warranty covers could save you thousands in the event that problems arise with your roof.

What are the chances I will have a problem with my new GAF roof?
Based on GAF’s state-of-the-art manufacturing process, the odds of having a problem with a new GAF roof about 1 in 1000! On the other hand, while serious problems with GAF roofing materials are rare, if you were to have a problem, it can be as expensive to fix as your roof originally cost. So while the risk of having a problem is low, the cost if you do have a serious problem can be high.

What if there are problems with the roof’s installation?
Studies indicate that more than two-thirds of the problems that people experience with their new roofs are due to the contractor’s workmanship, not the roofing materials. That’s why you should trust a GAF “MasterElite” certified Columbia or Charleston roofer or Charlotte roofing contractor like CMS Roofing with the installation.

What should I look for in a roofing warranty?
Basically, there are two types of coverage that you should ask your contractor about: coverage against material defects and coverage against workmanship errors. Make sure you get both in writing.

What does materials warranty cover?
Almost all roofing products come with a warranty against material defects, although your exact coverage will vary depending on the brand. For example, a typical shingle warranty will cover material defects for a period of 20, 30, 40 years or more. The warranty on the other components of your roofing system can vary from as little as a few months to several years. It is important to remember that coverage against material defects is provided by the manufacturer, so you should select a brand from a manufacturer who is financially strong and therefore more likely to be in business for as long as you own your roof, which could be several decades!

What is GAF’s “SmartChoice® Protection Period”?
GAF’s warranties come with a special provision called the Smart Choice® Protection Period that covers you against material defects during the critical early years of your new roof. During this period, in the event that you experience a material defect on covered components, GAF will provide you with 100% replacement materials and the reasonable cost of labor to install them. This is important because some roofing warranties may only provide replacement materials, but not the labor to install them.

What is the GAF Weather Stopper® System Plus Ltd. Warranty?
The GAF Weather Stopper® System Plus Ltd. provides coverage against material defects for all major GAF components on your roof (not just your shingles—so you’ll have the peace of mind of knowing that, if any covered roofing component fails, it will be covered by the warranty (see for complete coverage and restrictions). The warranty is available through GAF certified contractors, and is a low-cost way to get up to 50 years of non-prorated coverage (against material defects) on your new roofing system.

Does CMS Roofing cover me against workmanship errors?

GAF will stand behind our workmanship up to 20 years! The Golden Pledge® Ltd. Warranty is available only through GAF Master Elite™ Contractors like CMS Roofing who are factory-certified by GAF.

Thanks so much for the great work your crew did on our roof last week. We have a “dead valley” in our roof and piled debris and incorrect flashing and tie in from the original builder left us with a looming problem. We knew it would leak eventually, but now the roof is fixed and we have peace of mind.

I want to thank you and your employees for a job well done. I had called four different companies the day I called you. One company called me back in 4 days, another called back in 7 days and the third never did call back. Your estimator was at my house the next day as promised. When the crew showed up to do the work they were on time as promised.
