Home improvement companies like Home Depot are now offering roof replacement and installation services in addition to selling roofing materials. When choosing a roofing contractor, however, you want to be sure you are getting technicians with extensive experience who have been trained for your exact roofing issue. Although Home Depot roofing shingles may be high-quality, there is no way of knowing if the technicians they use are qualified enough to replace and install your roof.
Home Depot Warranty Comparison
According to the Home Depot website, the company offers premium roof installation services protected by craftsmanship warranties that last up to 25 years. RGB Construction, who are GAF Elite Certified, offer GAF warranties of up to 50 years. In addition, the cost of installation labor may be covered for the lifetime of the roof in some cases.
The technicians at RGB Construction are GAF Master Elite Certified. This means that we have received extensive training in roof replacement and installation. Only GAF Master Elite Certified roofers can provide the Golden Pledge Warranty, the most powerful and substantial in the industry. When RGB Construction replaces or installs your new roof, the entire roofing system is from GAF. This means all the components of your roof are from a single manufacturer. It is possible that you could have Home Depot roofing shingles attached to inferior materials from another manufacturer should you choose that company to handle your roof replacement.
Roofing Insurance Claims for Storm Damage
If your roof has suffered damage during a storm, you will need to file a roof damage insurance claim. In most cases, the insurance company will require you to obtain estimates for the repair. There are insurance companies who will not accept estimates from home improvement stores. This may be because Home Depot and companies like them subcontract the work. Although Home Depot may do a good job of investigating the companies they use, you may not be given information on that company. You would not know if they are GAF Master Elite Certified, bonded, insured or any other information. When it comes to filing a roof damage insurance claim, it is better to contact a qualified roofing contractor you can trust.
If you are in need of a roof replacement or have suffered damage during a storm, contact RGB Construction today. We offer GAF Master Elite warranties that far exceed those offered by Home Depot and other home improvement companies. Give us a call today or fill out the simple form online.
