Be careful, however. Some things can void your warranty. Learn more about these things here.


1. Mistakes During the Roof Installation

There are very few factors that will affect the integrity of your new roof as much as how the roofing contractor that installs it. High-quality products that are installed by a roofer who uses substandard methods will fail early. Installation mistakes can void your warranty, so you should always hire a trustworthy and established roofing company.

2. Using Non-System Components

A residential roof is a system of specially engineered components that all work together to protect your home. When you choose a new roof for your roof replacement, we strongly recommend using a complete roofing system. Using non-system components on your new roof installation can void your warranty because the warranty is designed for and only covers a single manufacturer’s products.

3. Covering Old Shingles With New Shingles

Some homeowners think that they’re saving money by forgoing the cost of labor to tear off their current roof. They are wrong. Installing new shingles over old ones can cause a lot of problems in the future. Doing this can void your roof warranty, shorten the lifespan on the new shingles and damage the roof’s structure.
