Your roof is your home’s first line of defense when it comes to bad weather. If something happens to your roof, then you need to make sure that your roofing warranty covers the damage. You should study your warranty carefully and figure out how it works. CQ Construction & Roofing, the top residential roofing company in our local area, explains how to get the most out of your roofing warranty.
Schedule Regular Roof Maintenance
The most important thing you need to do is to reduce the likelihood of needing to use your warranty in the first place. You should invest in regular roof inspections and maintenance. Look for reputable local contractors who are certified to install and maintain your current roof. If possible, then hire the company that installed your roof in the first place. Regular maintenance will greatly reduce the risk of roof leaks and extend your roof’s life span.
Study Your Warranty Ahead of Time
You should also carefully study your roofing warranty before you actually need it. Read your warranty and make sure you understand what it covers. A typical roofing warranty covers leak repairs caused by poor workmanship by licensed contractors and by defective roofing materials. Common warranty exclusions include damage caused by a lack of maintenance and damage caused by extreme weather.

Check Your Contractors’ Qualifications
When you hire someone to maintain your roof, you should always double-check their qualifications and certifications. Call the roofing manufacturer and ask them if your prospective contractor is authorized. If you don’t want any problems, then your roof needs to be inspected and maintained by a certified contractor.
