GAF Roof Warranty Comparison Guide

WARRANTY OPTIONS

Because of our GAF factory-certified Master Elite status, the roof systems we install are eligible for special warranties — all backed by GAF’s financial clout as North America’s largest roofing manufacturer. After all, a warranty is only as good as the manufacturer that stands behind it. With a GAF roof, you know that you will be covered throughout the warranty period – without fail! Ask your project coordinator which warranty option would be right for your home.

Standard Warranty: Typical, out-of-the-box coverage

GAF Systems Plus: Only available to GAF Certified and MasterElite Contractors
