Your home’s roof is its first line of defense against the elements, providing shelter and protection for you and your loved ones — but it’s also a hefty investment. To protect it, it’s crucial to ensure that you have a comprehensive warranty to cover you in case something goes wrong.
One such warranty is the Golden Pledge Limited Warranty offered by GAF, a renowned roofing manufacturer. Hoyt Exteriors offers this warranty program to all of our customers who purchase GAF products, so let’s review the key features and benefits of this warranty.
What is the Golden Pledge Limited Warranty?
The Golden Pledge Limited Warranty is an industry-leading warranty program that offers an extra layer of protection and peace of mind to homeowners who choose to install GAF roofing products.
This warranty is available exclusively through GAF’s Master Elite® and Certified™ Contractors, who meet strict criteria set by the company to ensure the highest level of workmanship and customer satisfaction. The Pledge is backed directly by GAF, and even if the contractor who completes your roofing installation happens to no longer be in business, the warranties are still honored through GAF.
Key Features and Benefits:
Manufacturing Defect Coverage: The Golden Pledge Limited Warranty provides lifetime coverage against manufacturing defects for most shingles (excluding Marquis WeatherMax® at 30 years and Royal Sovereign® at 25 years) as well as other GAF roofing products. This extended coverage ensures that you are protected in case of any defects in your roofing materials that affect their performance during your warranty term.
Wind Warranty Coverage: The Golden Pledge’s wind warranty coverage protects your LayerLock™- labeled shingles from wind damage for 15 years (excluding GAF Starter Strip Shingles and other GAF accessories). If your shingles fail to seal, blow off, or sustain damage from winds after they should have sealed, GAF will reimburse you for the costs of replacing the blown-off or damaged shingles, as well as hand-sealing any unsealed shingles.
Algae Warranty Coverage: The Golden Pledge Limited Warranty also includes coverage for algae resistance for up to 25 years. If unsightly algae growth occurs on your roof, GAF will provide coverage for cleaning or replacement for most products, ensuring your roof maintains its aesthetic appeal.
Misapplication Coverage: The warranty also includes coverage for misapplication by the contractor. In case of errors or improper installation that leads to a covered issue, GAF will cover the cost of corrective measures to rectify the problem. Warranty terms for misapplication range from 20-30 years, depending on the type of shingles purchased.
Transferable Warranty: Should you decide to sell your home, the Golden Pledge Limited Warranty is transferable to the subsequent owner, offering them the same level of protection and peace of mind. This transferability can be a valuable selling point and enhance the value of your property.
