The Right Warranty Makes All the Difference

When it comes to home repair and maintenance, a new roof is typically the greatest repair expense you’ll face.

Anytime you’re spending thousands of dollars, it’s a huge reassurance to know you’re covered with a solid warranty.

Scott’s Roofing proudly offers a 50-year system Preferred Protection warranty on Owens Corning® Roofing, which is one of the best warranties in the industry.

“This is a full system warranty, meaning it covers all Owens Corning® material installed on the roof, including underlayment, shingles, ridge cap, ventilation. Everything is covered up to 130-mph winds–even named storms. It also covers labor, installation, and disposal,” says Tyler Scott, sales manager at Scott’s Roofing.

Also included is a 10-year workmanship warranty, so any issues caused by installation are also covered.

“Most manufacturer warranties only cover the shingles, not labor or other roofing materials, and the pro-rating diminishes over time,” Tyler explains, adding that most manufacturers don’t hold the wind rating if it’s a named storm.

A third-generation family business, Scott’s Roofing has been serving Central Florida for 51 years. Bob Scott started the company in 1973 and it’s now owned by his son Thomas Scott.

Scott’s Roofing is a Florida-licensed roofing contractor and is able to offer upgraded warranties because they are an Owens Corning platinum dealer.

“There have been big changes in shingle technology in the last 10 years and Owens Corning has stayed on the forefront of building technology,” says Tyler. “To be a platinum dealer, we have to be vetted by Owens Corning, have an outstanding rating with the Better Business Bureau, and pass third party inspection.” 

Scott’s Roofing even offers one warranty above the Preferred. For just $400, the Platinum Preferred Warranty provides upgraded protection and increases the workmanship coverage from 10 to 25 years. 

“It’s like an insurance policy for your insurance and can protect you from having to make a claim,” says Tyler.

Another massive benefit is that warranties are fully transferable within the first 20 years, which is a big point if you’re thinking of selling your home. 

Scott’s Roofing specializes in residential and commercial re-roofing, installing at least 400 roofs every year in Lake, Sumter, and Marion Counties. The company is licensed, bonded, and fully insured.
