A Workmanship warranty covers the contractor’s installation. This often indicates your contractor is reputable and confident in their capabilities and work ethic. A workmanship warranty covers the cost of labor and materials. That’s why contractors must be thoroughly vetted before you make a decision. With this kind of warranty, any damage to the building caused by roofing issues, including furnishing and other personal interior property is covered as well.
Workmanship warranties have a few exclusions. Any roofing issues that aren’t related to the contractor’s workmanship will not be covered under this warranty. That means the contractor isn’t responsible for fixing problems caused by weather-related damage, such as rain, wind, ice, and hail storms. Leaks due to impact damage aren’t covered under workmanship warranties, either. For this reason, it’s great to have commercial building insurance, as this keeps you from paying a substantial amount out-of-pocket expenses when these issues occur.
