A lot of homeowners are naturally skeptical about extended warranties. After all, the only reason why manufacturers offer these is to make more money, right? That’s certainly the case for some, but that doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from extended warranties. Quite a few homeowners have managed to save on roof repair costs thanks to extended warranties.
Read on as Achten’s Quality Roofing, your go-to contractor in the state for all your roof repair needs, further elaborates on how extended warranties can benefit you as a homeowner.
Unexpected Financial Costs
First off, most homeowners get warranties for their roofing systems to protect themselves from unexpected costs. In that sense, warranties act as insurance for a significant investment like a new roof, ensuring its ROI isn’t diminished.
Of course, this protection lasts only as long as the warranty period. And with weather patterns becoming more erratic and frequent all-year-round, the financial case for getting extended warranties is getting stronger.
One more thing: if you want to maximize your ROI, we recommend getting a roof that’s suited to your region’s climate. Consult one of your local contractors to find out which roof types can withstand the weather conditions in your area.
Peace of Mind
The thought that just one extreme weather event can destroy your investment in a matter of minutes is often a source of anxiety for homeowners. Getting an extended warranty gives them peace of mind for a longer time.
Wasted Time Spent Looking for a Repair Contractor
Apart from eating up your savings, roof repairs can eat up a lot of your time as well. Hiring an unqualified or inexperienced contractor to repair your roof can make things worse, so you need to make sure you’ll a manufacturer-certified one. The problem is that it takes time.
The Benefits of Hiring a Certified Contractor
Keep in mind that warranties don’t cover damage stemming from improper installation work, which is why only certified contractors are authorized by manufacturers, like GAF®, to offer extended warranties. Certified contractors have undergone professional training, so it’s highly unlikely that they’ll make any installation errors.
