The GAF Shingle Warranty: Three Tiers of Coverage
Any GAF shingle roof warranty is fully transferable at no cost. There is additional wind coverage available for every shingle type except 3-Tab, and each comes with the Good Housekeeping seal of approval. The three tiers include:
- Basic: GAF Shingle & Accessory Warranty. Standard warranty for all GAF shingles. It covers material defects and the cost of installation on 3-Tab shingles for 3-5 years, and 10 years for others.
- Better: GAF Weather Stopper System Plus Limited Warranty. This covers 100% of material defects for 20 years on 3-Tab shingles and 50 years on all others. It also includes installation labor costs for 25-30 years for 3-Tab shingles and for the lifetime of the roof for all others. Workmanship is covered for two years, and tear-off costs are included for replacements due to material defects.
- Best: GAF Golden Pledge Limited Warranty. The same coverage as the System Plus Warranty along with 100% workmanship coverage for 25 years and tear-off and disposal costs for replacements due to workmanship problems. Coverage includes an inspection of the installation by GAF experts and is only available from a GAF Master Elite Contractor.
GAF Master Elite
In order to have the full backing of the best GAF shingle warranty, a roofer must complete extensive training and certification programs. In addition, every six months there are training sessions that cover new technologies and installation techniques. Our crew never stops working towards being the best in the business and that work pays off: only 3% of contractors in the country have earned this status.
