Are New Roofs Guaranteed?

There’s nothing better than the peace of mind that comes with a new roof. No more leaks, a flawless finish for the top of your property, and no more repairs for the foreseeable future.

Guarantees take that peace of mind to the next level, protecting you from any issues with your new roof over the course of its first few years in action. In this post, we’ll discuss whether new roofs are guaranteed and how to avoid a tricky situation with your roof.

The importance of a new roof guarantee

As mentioned above, the main benefit of a roof guarantee is the peace of mind. It reassures you that your roof will be up to scratch – and if it isn’t, the company that installed it have agreed to fix it.

That brings the added benefit of cost-efficiency. After all, new roofs don’t come cheap. When you’re investing several thousand pounds into a new roof, your guarantee will protect you from any added costs. These costs can come further down the line if it turns out to be faulty. In turn, that ensures you get the most ‘bang for your buck’ from the overall roof installation cost.

Finally, a new roof guarantee can protect you from further damage to your property. When water penetrates your roof, it can cause damage to its structure, your internal décor and even your electrics. If your guarantee holds the installer liable for issues that arise in the first few years, you can rest assured such damage won’t become an issue.

Is your new roof guaranteed?

Given how important roofs are to commercial and domestic properties, guarantees have become a must-have for many customers. Thankfully, it’s something most roofers provide – not least to demonstrate their confidence in the quality of their work.

However, that does come with a ‘but’. Unfortunately, there are some roofers who will provide a warranty or guarantee that isn’t worth the paper it’s written on. Despite feeling assured by their word, you’ll find them near-impossible to contact should anything go wrong.

When you’re looking for a new roof guarantee, there are a number of criteria you can look for to check whether it’s actually worth your while…

  • AccreditationsAccreditation schemes, like Trustmark, vet contractors to make sure they’re not just competent, but reliable and trustworthy too. On top of that, these schemes provide a point of contact should you have any issues. Rest assured, roofers who don’t uphold guarantees won’t be accredited for long.
  • Experience – Many roofers rely on word of mouth to get new jobs and stay busy. If they’re giving out bogus warranties, it will be much harder for them to stay in work for several years. By choosing a roofer that has stood the test of time, you’re much more likely to have a company you can trust.
  • Reviews – When it comes to reliability, it’s hard to find a better acid test than customer reviews. If a roofer hasn’t honoured their guarantee, you’ll almost certainly find it mentioned in the reviews on Google, Facebook or Trustpilot.
