Bates Roofing Offers Upgraded System Warranted Systems With CertainTeed Roofing Shingles
What is protecting your home and family from the elements? If you partner Bates Roofing, it’s a 10 year workmanship warranty and an incredible limited lifetime material warranty. In fact, with our CertainTeed Roofing products Shingle Master certification, we can do even more! We now offer a 50-year limited lifetime system warranty with our CertainTeed roofing shingle systems. That coupled with our Bates workmanship warranty and over 30 years in business and you simply do not have a safer choice in the roofing industry.
Workmanship Warranty, what really gives it value?
Every contractor in Washington State is obligated by law to provide a 1-year workmanship warranty. If the project is poorly installed or fails to perform its intended function in the first year the contractor is 100% liable to fix or replace it at their own cost until it performs as intended. Many contractors offer a 5 year workmanship warranty, which is far better than the State requirement. Here is a very sobering statistic that will help lend perspective to the true value of workmanship warranties, 80% of roofing contractors go out of business in the first two years, 80%! That simply means that the workmanship warranty is only as good as the track record and stability of the individual contractor. That is why Bates Roofing is hands down one of the safest roofing contractors in the Puget Sound for your upcoming reroof project. We have been in business for over 30 years. That means our overly generous 10-year workmanship warranty is something you can take to the bank. We simply take care of our customers and provide an exceptional service at a very fair price, that is why we are still here 30 years later to take care of you!
All asphalt roofing shingles offer a standard material warranty. The roofing brand options for the Puget Sound are CertainTeed, IKO, Malarkey, Owens Corning, GAF and Pabco. In a snapshot the average material only warranty is structured as a 50-year limited lifetime offering in which 10 years is covered 100% and the value of the warranty goes down little by little every year. For the first 10 years the manufacturer will pay to replace the roof including labor if it is proven that their product failed. After year 10 its typically material only. Essentially any where after year `10 you will not see a lot of value in what the warranty can provide if an early replacement is needed. Most of the standard material warranties are also non transferrable so once the original owner moves, they are not valid.
Upgraded System Warranties
An upgraded system warranty really changes the level of coverage we can offer our homeowners with CertainTeed Shingle Master systems. In a nutshell it extends the non-prorated 100% portion of the coverage to 50 years. It is also transferrable. In addition, we are required to install what is known as a full roofing system according to the manufacturers specification. So instead of receiving the value engineer system, aka cutting corners and using the minimalist system, we install a bullet proof system that is engineered to waterproof your roof to the highest standard.
