Warranties: Why Contractor Certifications Matter


A lot of homeowners are naturally skeptical about extended warranties. After all, the only reason why manufacturers offer these is to make more money, right? That’s certainly the case for some, but that doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from extended warranties. Quite a few homeowners have managed to save on roof repair costs thanks to extended warranties.

Unexpected Financial Costs

First off, most homeowners get warranties for their roofing systems to protect themselves from unexpected costs. In that sense, warranties act as insurance for a significant investment like a new roof, ensuring its ROI isn’t diminished.

While helpful, it’s important to remember that this protection lasts only as long as the warranty period. And with weather patterns becoming more erratic and frequent all-year-round, the financial case for getting extended warranties is getting stronger.

Additionally, if you want to maximize your ROI, we recommend getting a roof appropriate for your region’s climate. Consult one of your local contractors to find out which roof types can withstand the weather conditions in your area.

Peace of Mind from Warranties

The thought that just one extreme weather event can destroy your investment in a matter of minutes can often be a source of anxiety for homeowners. Getting an extended warranty gives you peace of mind for a longer time. In case something bad does happen, you can rest assured that we’ll take care of it.

Wasted Time Spent Looking for a Repair Contractor

Apart from eating up your savings, roof repairs can eat up a lot of your time as well. Hiring an unqualified or inexperienced contractor to repair your roof can make things worse, so you need to make sure you’ve found one that is manufacturer-certified. Achten’s Quality Roofing has only the best training and certifications for our roofers!

When you purchase an extended warranty through Achten‘s Quality Roofing, you know you’re getting a certified contractor to repair your roof quickly and the right way, the first time.

It’s no secret that roofs can be expensive to replace. Even a basic roof installation can cost thousands of dollars, and more complex projects could run into the tens of thousands. That’s why warranties are such an important part of any roofing project – they offer homeowners peace of mind knowing that if anything goes wrong with their new roof, they won’t have to pay out-of-pocket for costly repairs or replacements.

Achten’s Quality Roofing is proud to offer warranties on every project we do—so let’s take a closer look at what these warranties mean for our customers.

Achten’s Quality Roofing offers warranties on all materials used in our projects as well as warranties on labor and craftsmanship. Our material warranties come from the manufacturers themselves and will last variable amounts of time depending on the type of shingle used in your roofing project.

These warranties cover defects in materials caused by manufacturing issues but don’t include damage caused by natural disasters such as hail storms or windstorms, so it is important to remember this when considering coverage options for your home.


The Benefits of Hiring a Certified Contractor

When you hire a certified contractor, you are hiring a team of professionals. Certified contractors provide their team with ongoing training on installation, repairs, and more. They also offer excellent service and knowledgable expertise to assess and fix most roofing problems.
