What warranties are available with a tile roof?
Unlike the Shingle Manufacturers, there is no tile roofing manufacturer that offers a complete tile roof system warranty. Each Product in a tile roof system carries its own material warranty ranging from 5 years to Lifetime. The Roofing Contractor or Architect must make the best choice of materials, ensure that they are installed per each manufacturer's specifications, and then provide a warranty backed by his firm. Roofing Contractors offer Workmanship Warranties ranging from 1 year, 3 years, 5 years (standard), 10 years, 15 years and more.
