Frequently Asked Questions

Customers tell us the most confusing part of buying a roof is choosing a warranty. So here's our answers to some of the most popular questions.
1
Which GAF Warranty Should I Choose?

All GAF roofing shingles and qualifying accessories (the “GAF Products”) come with the great coverage provided by the GAF Shingle & Accessory Limited Warranty, and you don’t need to do anything at all to get it. In the event you experience a problem with your GAF Products caused by a manufacturing defect, this warranty is a great start.

2
Does My GAF Warranty Need To Be Registered?

Neither the GAF Shingle & Accessory Limited Warranty nor the GAF Roofing System Limited Warranty require registration. Simply hold on to your proof of purchase, which will need to be provided to GAF in the unlikely event you experience a problem with your GAF Products during the warranty term and need to file a claim. Enhanced warranties (such as the System Plus Limited Warranty, Silver Pledge Limited Warranty, and Golden Pledge Limited Warranty) do require registration, but your GAF Certified Contractor will take care of that. If you purchase an enhanced warranty from Infinity Roofing and do not receive a copy of your warranty and registration within 60 days after the installation is complete, please contact us immediately at 973-803-9485.

3
What Are The Benefits of the Systems Plus Limited Warranty

The System Plus Limited Warranty provides the Smart Choice Protection Period is extended from 10 years to 50 years, and tear-off is included (when necessary). See System Plus Limited Warranty for complete coverage and restrictions.

4
What Are The Benefits of the Golden Pledge Limited Warranty?

The Golden Pledge Limited Warranty provides all of the same coverage available in the Systems Plus Limited Warranty, but the workmanship coverage lasts for 20, 25, or 30 years (depending on the type of shingles you choose to install). See Golden Pledge Limited Warranty for complete coverage and restrictions.

5
What do you mean by "Smart Choice Protection Period"?

The Smart Choice Protection Period refers to the crucial period of time following installation of the GAF Products during which the coverage provided for in your GAF warranty is non-prorated. After the Smart Choice Protection Period, the remedy provided for in your GAF Warranty may be different than that provided for during the Smart Choice Protection Period, and any remedy will be reduced to reflect the use you have received from your GAF Products. The amount of use will be calculated by dividing the number of months which have elapsed since installation to the date of claim by the number of months in the warranty term. For a Lifetime limited warranty, the number of months in the warranty term is deemed to be 600 for years 11-40 of the warranty term. For years 41 and beyond of a Lifetime warranty, GAF’s contribution is 20%. For example, if you make a claim for Lifetime shingles after they have been installed for 25 years (or 300 months), your settlement will be reduced by 300/600, or 50%.

6
What Coverage Is Available For Defects?

In the event that GAF approves your warranty claim for a manufacturing defect during the Smart Choice Protection Period, GAF will provide you with replacement GAF Products and will pay you the full reasonable cost of labor to install the replacement GAF Products. After the Smart Choice Protection Period, labor is no longer covered and the amount of replacement GAF Products will be reduced to reflect the use you have received from your GAF Products from the date of installation to the date of claim.

7
What Coverage Is Available For Workmanship?

The Golden Pledge Limited Warranty offers coverage for misapplication of your GAF Products and flashings at valleys, dormers, chimneys, and plumbing vents (“Covered Flashings”). This coverage is also commonly referred to as “workmanship” coverage, and this warranty is only available through Infinity Roofing. 

In the event that GAF determines there is an application error which falls within the scope of the coverage provided for in the Golden Pledge Limited Warranty, GAF will arrange to have your roof repaired or, at its sole option, will provide you with replacement GAF Products and reimburse you for the full reasonable cost of labor and other materials to repair your roof, including Covered Flashings. See Golden Pledge Limited Warranty for complete coverage and restrictions.

8
What Coverage Is Available For Algae?

The Golden Pledge Limited Warranty offers coverage for misapplication of your GAF Products and flashings at valleys, dormers, chimneys, and plumbing vents (“Covered Flashings”). This coverage is also commonly referred to as “workmanship” coverage, and this warranty is only available through Infinity Roofing. 

In the event that GAF determines there is an application error which falls within the scope of the coverage provided for in the Golden Pledge Limited Warranty, GAF will arrange to have your roof repaired or, at its sole option, will provide you with replacement GAF Products and reimburse you for the full reasonable cost of labor and other materials to repair your roof, including Covered Flashings. See Golden Pledge Limited Warranty for complete coverage and restrictions.

8
What Coverage Is Available For Algae?

Algae Warranty coverage is available in all GAF warranties covering shingles and accessories. All StainGuard Plus-labeled shingles carry a 25-year limited warranty and 10-year non-prorated period against algae discoloration caused by blue-green algae (also known as cyanobacteria). All StainGuard-labeled shingles and ridge cap shingles carry a 10-year limited warranty and 1-year non-prorated period. There is no coverage for algae discoloration for any other GAF Accessory Products. The remedy provided in the event of a claim is the reasonable cost of commercially cleaning your shingles or ridge cap shingles, or at GAF’s sole option, replacing the discolored shingles or ridge cap shingles. See applicable warranty for complete coverage and restrictions.

9
What Coverage Is Available For Wind Damage?

Wind Warranty coverage is available in all GAF warranties covering shingles and accessories. Wind Warranty coverage on GAF shingles and ridge cap shingles lasts for 15 years. There is no wind warranty coverage for any other GAF Accessory Products. Maximum wind speed coverage depends on the type of shingles or ridge cap shingles installed on your roof, as well as the installation method. The remedy provided in the event of a claim is reimbursement for the reasonable costs of replacing blown-off shingles or damaged shingles or ridge cap shingles and hand-sealing any unsealed shingles or ridge cap shingles. See applicable warranty for complete coverage and restrictions.

10
