At Safe Roofing, we provide two types of roofing warranties: contractor warranty and manufacturer warranty. In this section, you will learn details about each type of warranty and have an ultimate peace of mind.
Contractor Warranty – Contractor warranty is issued by individual roofing contractors, such as Safe Roofing Limited. Contractor warranty applies to the labor done when installing or replacing roof shingles and gives you recourse in case of issues resulting from workmanship error. Safe Roofing's contractor warranty is included in the Service Contract and covers homeowners for five years.

Manufacturer Warranty – Roofing material manufacturers will issue a manufacturer warranty to homeowners. Manufacturer warranty covers the costs of replacing defective or prematurely damaged roofing shingles. Some warranties cover the cost of material while others include labor, tear-off, and dumping.
Not all manufacturer warranties are created equal. Therefore, it’s important to obtain a copy of the warranty and read it carefully.
Warranty Period – most warranties are “lifetime” warranties. They do not mean that your roof shingles are covered for a lifetime. Unless the warranty specifically indicates that the non-prorated period is lifetime or 50 years. Most lifetime warranties are on a prorated basis. This means that the warranty will not provide the full coverage as time elapses beyond the full protection period, which is between 10 to 20 years. In many instances, material coverage will be reduced and labor cost is not covered beyond the full protection period.
The Extended Manufacturer Warranty- Safe Roofing is a certified roofing contractor for multiple leading shingle manufacturers. This means that we can offer you the extended manufacturer warranty at no additional cost, and better protect your home.
Extended coverage has the following benefits:
- Much longer non-prorated period (e.g. 50 years)
- More types of coverage (e.g. material, labor, tear-off, disposal)
- Full coverage for shingle repair
- Extended wind warranty
