As a homeowner, you understand intuitively the security of knowing you made the right choice when it comes to your roof. Still, not every warranty is created equal. For example, some asphalt roofing manufacturers charge for different types of warranties and provide only basic coverage for the product (if at all). Additionally, some manufacturers prorate the length of the warranty, so in just a few short years, only a fraction of the roof is covered.
When looking over warranties, it can be hard to make heads or tails of what the best choice is, you just know that you want a strong warranty to protect your investment. Worry no more, what you are looking for is DECRA’s lifetime warranty. Homeowners who have a DECRA metal roof enjoy knowing their roof comes standard with one of the most comprehensive warranties in the industry.
When compared to asphalt shingles, clay tiles and wood shakes that have shortcomings when exposed to the elements, the durability of a metal roof is hard to compete with. Engineered to protect against natural disasters, like hurricanes and tornadoes, DECRA’s products are warrantied for:
Some roofing manufacturers do not allow warranty transfers when selling homes. This creates a headache for homeowners who invested in a new roof prior to selling, but can’t pass on the warranty to the new owners.
DECRA roofs are backed by a warranty that comes with buyer-friendly terms and acts as an excellent selling point for many homeowners looking to capitalize on the longevity of metal roofing. This means homeowners may transfer their warranty to a subsequent property owner within 20 years of the initial installation.
In areas where tornadoes and hurricanes are common, this warranty is a great way to upsell your home to buyers who may be more willing to pay a premium price.
Homeowners can register for the Lifetime Limited Warranty free of charge, any time. While registration is not required for warranty coverage, it’s recommended. They’ll receive the DECRA Homeowners Manual upon doing so, which includes a copy of the warranty, instructions for cleaning and walking on a DECRA metal roof, and answers to frequently asked questions.
DECRA roofs have excelled through some of the harshest weather conditions around the world for over 60 years. The Lifetime Limited Warranty is a testament to our industry-setting standards backed by the durability, longevity and integrity of our roofing systems.
