GAF Warranty Information

We are proud to offer GAF ‘s Weather Stopper® Systems Plus Warranty, with up to 50 years of 100% coverage.  Only about 4% of roofing contractors can offer this extended period warranty.

What Is The GAF Weather Stopper® System Plus Ltd. Warranty?

The GAF Weather Stopper® System Plus Ltd. Warranty provides coverage against manufacturing defects for all major GAF components on your roof (not just your shingles) — so you’ll have the peace of mind of knowing that, if any covered roofing component fails.  The warranty is available through GAF’s factory-certified contractors such as this roofing company.  This is a low-cost way to get up to 50 years of non-prorated coverage on your new roofing system.  For the small additional cost of the System Plus ltd. warranty, this is probably the best value you can get for your investment.

Call us if you have any questions about this warranty!

* Check ltd. warranties for complete coverage and restrictions. Also note:

  • The word “Lifetime” means as long as the original individual owner of a single family detached residence (or the second owner in certain circumstances) owns the property where the shingles are installed. For owners/structures (e.g., a church) not meeting above criteria, Lifetime coverage is not applicable. See limited warranty for complete coverage and restrictions.
  • Installer certification is only for installations covered by GAF system warranties.
  • Maximum wind coverage requires special installation.  See limited warranty for complete coverage and restrictions.
