When you’re in the market for a new roof or you’re buying a new house, it’s important that you make sure you know whether or not you have a new roof warranty. Having a warranty is good insurance in case issues arise with your roof that are from the manufacturer or a result of how it was installed.

Do Roofs Come with Warranties?

When you get a complete roof replacement done to your home, you should get a warranty for it, both for the materials that were used and the workmanship done. Roof warranties can vary depending on what manufacturer you buy your supplies from and what kind of contractor you use for your work, but it should be covered for twenty to fifty years depending on what type of materials you used and the details of the warranty.

Can I Get a New Home Roof Warranty When I Buy A House?

If you buy a home that is a new construction, a roof warranty is usually provided through the home builder. However, if you find that the roof of your new construction is leaking, you need to make sure that it is because of something that the warranty will cover such as defective materials or bad craftsmanship. Most problems with roofs on a new construction are structural issues and the warranty may not cover it.

If you’re buying a new house, a roof warranty is not always guaranteed. If the previous owner had a transferable warranty, a type of warranty that automatically transfers to new owners once the sale is complete, then the warranty will transfer to you once the house is sold. However, not every type of warranty will transfer and sometimes transferable warranties will only transfer one time. If it only transfers one time and the homeowner you bought the house from was not the one who got the warranty, your roof may no longer be covered once it’s yours.
