The GAF golden pledge warranty offers a superior non-probated roofing material and craft warranty. Most roofing warranties do not offer lifetime cover for the roofing system or a good workmanship warranty. In some cases, only the manufacturer error is covered and not accessories.
So what is the GAF golden pledge warranty and what makes it different? Here is what you need to know.
What Is The GAF Golden Pledge Warranty?
The golden pledge warranty offers lifetime coverage for GAF shingles and guaranteed consumer protection. It also provides a 25-year artistry warranty, which is way longer than the average quality insurance of 2 years. Golden pledge warranty is an integrated system where GAF has to approve all materials and own all warranties.
The golden pledge warranty’s 25-year quality coverage caters to the lifetime cost of labor and installation, as well as removal and disposal. For most warranties, the roofing company owns the coverage; if they are liquidated, the warranty dies with them.
However, GAF protects customers by taking responsibility for the workmanship warranty and vetting all the material used in the roofing system. Customers will enjoy ideal roofing from GAF master elite certified companies like Solar Optimum.
Master Elite Contractor
So why are there very few GAF-certified contractors? All roofing contractors or installation companies offering a golden pledge warranty must be certified as a master elite contractor. The process of certification and accreditation by GAF is thorough; very few roofing companies have attained this certification. A master elite certification is only achieved after a GAF factory-trained inspector has checked all boxes and ascertained that you had followed all the stringent installation requirements.
To provide the golden pledge warranty, a master elite roofing company must use all GAF-certified materials and roofing systems and follow their roofing codes. All liabilities fall to the GAF, and thus they have to ensure that all certified contractors offer the best quality. Any single deviation implies that the roof will not meet the requirements of the golden pledge warranty. This means that all roofs will have a rating upon inspection by the GAF-trained inspectors to indicate that it has attained a golden pledge coverage.
What Are The Benefits Of Having A GAF Golden Pledge Warranty?
As mentioned above, once the inspectors ascertained that you were covered under the golden pledge warranty, GAF will provide a replacement for roofing systems and cover the installation cost. Labor is only covered for the 25 years in the workmanship warranty. GAF-approved contractors will also have accident insurance for contractors or other parties impacted by the damages from the roof during or after installation.
