How Many Warranties Should You Have for Your New Roof?

Let Us Explain Why Two is Better Than One

McCarthy metal roofing warranties materials and workmanship. Piece of mind image.

At McCarthy Metal Roofing, we work hard to make sure you, your home, and your family are protected. We also firmly believe in educating you so that you can make an informed decision. That’s why we wanted to take a minute to talk to you about metal roofing warranties.

Most homeowners think that one warranty is enough to protect them if something happens to their roof. Unfortunately, having only one warranty leaves you vulnerable to charges you shouldn’t have to pay for. The last thing you want is to end up with a lifetime warranty that’s heavily prorated or fails to cover installation issues.

When you purchase a new roof, you should receive two warranties: one warranty to cover the roofing product (usually provided by the manufacturer) and one to cover the installation (usually provided by the contractor). This is exactly what you get from McCarthy Metal Roofing.

Our Manufacturer’s Lifetime Limited Warranty

Our roofing products come with the absolute best warranties available on the market today.

  • Lifetime material and labor against manufacturer defects and is transferable for 40 years.
  • Lifetime warranty against leaking from hail
  • Lifetime warranty against blow off up to 120 MPH.
  • 30-year no fade or color change in excess of five (5) Hunter E units
  • 30-year no chalk up to rating 8 of test ASTM D-659-80

You’re probably thinking, “That’s great! But don’t most roofing companies offer a lifetime warranty?” Many do, but not all warranties are created equal. The lifetime warranty you receive from us is never prorated and it covers up to 100% of the full purchase price.

A prorated warranty means the longer you own your roof, the less the manufacturer pays to repair it; they depreciate the value of the roof over time. Some prorating policies are so drastic that your warranty is practically worthless by the time you need to file a claim.

You’ll want to read the fine print with any warranty that you receive, and always make sure you get a separate warranty, in writing, that covers the installation of the roof. Most manufacturers only cover their products… not the materials or the labor that goes into installing them.

We do things differently. The manufacturer’s warranty you get from McCarthy Metal Roofing will be as good in 40 years as it is today. To find out more and to read the warranty for yourself, just click on the product that you are interested in below:
