What a GAF Registered Warranty really means for you...
Warranties can often be deceiving, they promise you one thing until you read the fine print and find out it means another, and unfortunately for many homeowners this realization doesn't come until it's too late.
Chateau Roofing & Siding is a GAF Master Elite contractor, a certification that only 3% of all roofing contractors in North America are qualified for. It allows us to offer you a 50 year non-prorated manufactures warranty through GAF on top of the minimum 5 year workmanship warranty Chateau Roofing & Siding guarantees you.

When given a side by side comparison it's easy to see that although competitors can offer the same product the warranty coverage is hardly comparable to what Chateau Roofing & Siding can provide. On top of the manufacturer warranty GAF offers, Chateau Roofing & Siding provides you a standard 5 year workmanship warranty, and if you qualify for the GAF Golden Pledge warranty your workmanship coverage instantly jumps to a 25 year workmanship warranty.
What does a non-prorated warranty mean for you...
In most cases the warranties manufactures offer are 'prorated' meaning the length of the free replacement of your roof is usually short. Under a prorated warranty, if your roof system fails before the end of the warranty coverage, it is replaced at a cost that depends on the age of the shingle and the timing of it's failure.
Chateau Roofing & Siding provides you the comfort of a GAF 50 year non-prorated manufacturers warranty, giving you a bumper to bumper coverage gaurantee. This means that even 49 years after the installation should your GAF roof system fail due to defective products, GAF will replace your entire roof.
what does a transferable warranty mean for you...
Along with unbeatable coverage the GAF 50 year warranty is also transferable. This means that wether you're selling your home or planning on buying, when the home changes ownership the warranty can be transferred into the new home owners name. This ensures the new owners receive the same extensive coverage as promised to the original home owner.
Even for home owners not considering selling their home at the time of the roof installation, having the option to offer the roof warranty coverage should you one day decide to move can not only be a relief but also a great asset to offer potential buyers.
