The Importance of Manufacturer’s Warranty in Steel Roofing

14 September 2017

Without a doubt, the roof is the most important part of any home, building, or structure, which is why the choice of roofing material is paramount. In New Zealand, many residential and commercial property owners trust NZ steel roofing materials to protect their homes and buildings, for good reasons.

Steel roofs are energy-efficient, durable, long-lasting, cost-effective, and more versatile than other types roofing material, and, depending on the grade of steel used, the manufacturer’s warranty can be as long as 30 years or more, if certain requirements are met. One of the main requirements of a manufacturer’s warranty coverage is that the steel roof is professionally installed by a licensed roofing company.

Licensed roofers make sure that the manufacturer’s roofing material is installed correctly on your home or commercial building, and when done properly, a Lifetime Limited Warranty is activated. A manufacturer’s warranty typically covers the original owner against any defects, as well as specific damages such as flaking, chipping, splitting, cracking, and peeling of protective coating. Should failures occur, warranty coverage will provide replacement materials and the cost of labour for any replacement or repairs that are needed.

Property Owners Rely on Manufacturer’s Warranty of Steel Roofing

It is a wise decision when either buying a new home, or reroofing an existing building, to investigate the manufacturer’s warranty first, before agreeing on anything in writing. A licensed roofing company can help you go over what a steel roof warranty covers, and what it does not cover, and, how long the coverage will lasts.

Purchasing property is a big investment, and because it is the roof that protects everything under it, property owners rely not only on the professional steel roof installation, but on the quality of the roofing material and the manufacturer’s warranty to protect all that they own. This especially concerns residential property owners because everything of value they own is under the roof of their home.

This is exactly why it is highly recommended to hire a well-known and proven roofing company based on their passed work, rather than hire the lowest priced licensed roofing contractor or handyman to install your metal roof. While licensed roofers are all required to carry insurance in case of accidents such as workers damaging your property, not all licensed roofing companies deliver the same level of service and craftsmanship.

With that said, there is a roofing company in Auckland you can trust to provide the best steel roof installation that comes with the best manufacturer’s warranty, at Johnson Roofing – Auckland’s premier steel roofing company.
