What Type Of Warranty Does GAF Offer For A Commercial Roof?

Good, Better & Best!

Roof Warranties

 

Weather Stopper® Integrated System Limited Warranty

If you are looking for “just the basics” this warranty covers just that. The Weather Stopper® Warranty covers the entire roof system including accessories and insulation. The main downfall to this warranty is that it only covers material defects. It has a maximum coverage period of 20 years and includes replacement materials as well as the cost of material to correct a possible problem. What you need to know in terms of this warranty is that only GAF Authorized, Master and Master Select Low-Slope Factory Certified Contractors are able to offer this warranty to its customers. And yes, this warranty is transferable to the next owner of the property, as long as its within the 20 year period.

System Pledge™ Warranty

A step up from the Weather Stopper® Warranty is the System Pledge™ Warranty. Not only does it cover material defects and workmanship errors it also covers the entire roof system. This option has a maximum coverage period of 20-25 years and includes replacement materials and covers the cost of labor to correct a possible defect. Along with the Weather Stopper® this warranty is only offered by GAF Authorized, Master & Master Select Contractors and is transferable.

EverGuard® Diamond Pledge™ NDL Roof Guarantee

The Diamond Pledge™ NDL (No Dollar Limit) Warranty is considered the best of the best when it comes to commercial roof warranties. This is because it not only covers matieral defects and workmanship errors for the entire roof system, but it also provides an unlimited dollar amount for covered repairs. Its maximum coverage period tops the others at up to 35 years (with select systems) and qualifies for the WellRoof® extension program where you can add up to 6.25 years on your warranty coverage. This warranty is transferable and is only offered by GAF Master & Master Select Contractors.

Foreign Exchange Workers: Training Abroad

 

Work Placement Abroad

In December of 2013 Chase Construction NW, Inc. roofed a home in Puyallup, 
WA . Throughout the process we built a great relationship with the homeowner who had a son living in Denmark. He was looking for work in the states as a part of his work placement abroad program through the Danish PiU-Programme. We thought it would be a great opportunity to support foreign exchange workers and offered Alex employment with Chase Construction NW, Inc. Below is a little information about the Danish PiU Programme and what work placement abroad offers its students.

 

Education and Training with the PiU Programme

In 1992 the Danish Parliament passed legislation to the effect that young Danes in initial vocational training could have periods of work placement abroad recognised as an integral part of their course.

A work placement abroad gives the young person qualifications that are invaluable assets in today’s economic and industrial climate: communicative skills in foreign languages, intimate knowledge of foreign markets, valuable contacts and in many instances new technological insights. Add to this the personal development of a young person away from home for a long period: increased independence, self-reliance, tolerance of others with a different background, problem-solving skills, initiative, ability to assume responsibility etc.

GAF Low Slope Roofing

GAF Interviews Weatherholt and Associates, Inc.

Chase Construction NW, Inc. had the opportunity to capture GAF’s Washington and Alaska’s Territory Manager Shawn Notle discuss the importance of hiring a Master™ and Master Select™ contractor when installing a flat or low slope roofing system on residential or commercial roofing projects. Standing in the heart of downtown Seattle you can see that commercial flat roofs are nearly on every corner.

Shawn had the opportunity to interview Weatherholt and Associates, Inc. Principle and Senior Field Engineer Rob Card who reiterates the importance of not only hiring contractors who are qualified at the highest level of certification, but finding a manufacturer who holds themselves to a high standard.
