Reinforce the Backbone of Your Roof
Two reasons that asphalt roof shingles are such a popular choice for roofing are they look great and are affordable. We know that having several options to choose from when it comes to installing an slate roof or asphalt shingle can be a benefit, but it can quickly morph into a disadvantage when you realize just how many choices you have. Some of the reasons you might be most comfortable choosing asphalt shingles include:
- Having a low upfront cost
- Being able to protect your home for anywhere from 25 to 50 years
- Choosing from laminated, three-tab and premium asphalt shingles
- Getting a professional installation with an affordable cost of labor
GAF asphalt shingles come in 3 styles – 3-tab, laminated (AKA dimensional), and designer shingles. All of these asphalt roof shingles are covered by a Manufacturer’s Limited Liability warranty which covers labor and materials for 10 years if there is a material defect in the shingle. As well, GAF offers two premium warranties, the System Plus Warranty and the Golden Pledge Warranty. These two warranties are the best in the industry, in our opinion. For a 3-tab roof, both warranties offer a 5 year workmanship warranty and they both extend the 10 year warranty out to 20 years and then pro-rate out to 25 years. For laminated and designer shingles, both warranties extend the 10 year warranty out to 50 years, with a 5 year workmanship warranty on the System Plus and a 25 year workmanship on the Golden Pledge.
We would love to tell you that we never have any warranty claims, but that just wouldn’t be true. When you select a roofing company, however, you want to know that the company you hired will still be in business if and when a warranty claim arises. Kanga Roof Austin is that roofing company.
