Asphalt shingles come with many advantages for homeowners and commercial property owners. For example, they are usually much cheaper compared to other options. In addition, they are available in many different colors and styles. Another thing that makes more and more homeowners and commercial property owners interested in asphalt shingles is the fact that some popular manufacturers have started offering lifetime warranties for their asphalt shingles. So, whenever you are asking for a roofing quote, make sure that the quote includes warranty options.
As we have already mentioned, most of the popular brands offer products with lifetime warranties. For example, CertainTeed is offering premium asphalt shingles and dimensional shingles with a lifetime warranty. Their shingles are resistant to damages caused by winds because they are slightly heavier. Some of the lines offered by this company are Grand Manor, Landmark Special, Landmark Solaris and Presidential Shake.
Furthermore, with more than 130 years of experience, GAF is one of the oldest and most successful manufacturers of shingles in the world. Every shingle produced by this company comes with a certification. Their timberline line of products has established a standard in this field and this is the reason why many people call architectural shingles Timberlines. Many people are interested in the GAF-Elk Timberline shingles. For instance, their Prestique Lifetime shingle known for its weight, has a 130 mph wind warranty that lasts forever. The American Harvest shingles by Timberline are another good example of shingles with a lifetime warranty. They are very stylish, but this feature doesn’t make them expensive. They provide excellent protection and once you install them you can rest assured that nothing will go wrong. Of course, they must be installed properly. Finally, GAF also offers Natural Shadow shingles that can significantly increase curb appeal. Once again, these shingles with a lifetime warranty are relatively inexpensive.
On the other hand, IKO, which is another popular roofing manufacturer, provides only limited warranty on asphalt shingles. Some of the models that come with this type of warranty are marathon 25 AR, Cambridge AR, Crowne Slate, Marathon Ultra AR and Royal Estate.
Even though Owens Corning and Malarkey don’t offer lifetime warranty to asphalt shingles, the warranty period of 25 to 50 years should be enough to give a peace of mind to any home or business owner.
Finally, before you choose the type of asphalt shingle, make sure to check the roof warranty. If you are hiring a roofing company, be sure that they are certified, licensed and can provide you with lifetime warranties.
