Shingle Roof Replacement in Austin and the warranties offered by the roofing company and manufacturer of the product installed on your home’s roof can be a bit of a wildcard. Depending on the class of the shingle and its properties may not provide the coverage necessary to stand up to the severe weather we experience here in Central Texas. That is why it is important to understand how a warranty may work and the coverage features they offer. Otherwise, you could be left footing the bill in the end.
Depending on the shingle rating, you will want to understand the type of hail coverage it protects you from and also other conditions such as wind ratings. As illustrated earlier, with the average hail size that we experience here in Austin being between 1.75 and 2 inches in many cases, a class one shingle warranty would become null and void as a result. There are also wind damage considerations too. With Austin prone to extreme wind conditions, especially during storm season, many of the class one and two shingles would also be unable to withstand the damage or provide coverage.
When you install your roof with Reliable Roofing, you automatically get a free upgrade to a class three rated shingle. Capable of withstanding winds of up to 130 mph! And in the event that a storm takes place and damage occurs, you have the peace of mind knowing that you will have a 15-year warranty that covers materials and labor, no strings attached. All warranties are transferrable and with our hail-resistant shingles, they can even help lower your home insurance annual premium by up to 10 to 15%. We even offer a 45 Year Premium Warranty to extend the coverage, which is also fully transferrable, without any proration after any period of time. Now that’s an assurance!
