The short explanation: roofing manufacturers, such as Certainteed, are the only ones who can honor their roofing material warranties because they manufactured the roofing materials you’re using. On the other hand, dependable Calgary AB roofing contractors, such as No Payne Roofing, can only provide roofing labor warranties because they rendered the service.

The biggest confusion among Calgary AB homeowners is: Why can’t roofing manufacturers provide material warranties if we don’t use their certified roofers?

Roofing materials work effectively only if a professional roofer installs it the way manufacturers intended it. For example, Certainteed has its respective installation procedures requiring them to train and educate roofers for certification. In this light, using a Certainteed-certified roofer, such as No Payne Roofing, is your best choice.

With exceptional roofers installing their roofing materials properly, roofing manufacturers can place full confidence in the roofing contractor’s output. Therefore, with all factors now ideal, manufacturers can place their seal of quality. Roofing contractors can provide their respective guarantees too.

Truthfully, as long as you’re using a manufacturer-certified roofer, you’ll always receive top-notch, dependable, and warranty-bound roofing all the time. In this light, consult with your roofing manufacturer about their preferred contractors near your area.
