Should I purchase a SureStart extended warranty with my CertainTeed roof replacement?
Yes. The answer is always yes.
The first step that an owner should do before even obtaining estimates is to find out if that company is certified with the shingle manufacturer. For CertainTeed, any roofing company that is certified to install their materials is either a ShingleMaster or Select ShingleMaster.
Why does it matter if they are a ShingleMaster or Select ShingleMaster?
If the company you are looking to obtain a roof replacement estimate does not posses one of those titles from CertainTeed than they are not able to provide you with any SureStart extended warranties from CertainTeed. The best that company could offer you would be their inhouse warranty.
Here at Ascent Roofing Solutions, we are Select ShingleMasters. This means we have earned the top-level CertainTeed roofing credential and represent the highest standards of excellence, quality and knowledge in the shingle roofing industry. Only a Select ShingleMaster can provide the highest level of the SureStart Plus extend warranty.
What are my options for extend warranties through CertainTeed?
There are three types of extended warranties to protect your investment that Ascent Roofing Solutions can offer you through CertainTeed. See the details below.
3 Star Protection – Provides owners with a 20-year warranty on materials and labor. This warranty will also provide the cost of the current roof tear roof if a warranty replacement is needed. This warranty is also fully transferable to a new owner of the home within 10 years of replacement.
4 Star Protection – This next step-up warranty provides owners with a 50-year warranty on materials, labor, tear off as included in the 3 Star but will also include the disposal of the old roofing material in the event of a warranty replacement. The 4 Star warranty can be transferred to a new owner of the home within 12 years of replacement.
5 Star Protection – The is the top-of-the-line extended warranty provided by CertainTeed as this is a 50 Year, non-prorated warranty that provides all of the offerings of the 4 Star warranty; materials, labor, tear off and disposal, but they will add a 25-year workmanship warranty for added protection. This 5 Star warranty can be transferred to a new owner of the home within 15 years of replacement.
What is the cost to add on a SureStart Warranty?
