What Is the GAF Golden Pledge Warranty for Residential Roofs?

Posted on June 4th, 2015 by

GAF is North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, making materials with trusted quality since 1886. At Lodde Roofing, we have learned to count on GAF’s quality roofing materials through our years of replacing and repairing residential roofs.

The Golden Pledge warranty is GAF’s best roofing system warranty. It was the first manufacturer’s warranty to cover not only manufacturing defects, but also the contractor’s workmanship (that’s us!).

GAFHow Can GAF’s Golden Pledge Warranty Cover the Contractor’s Workmanship?

It might seem a little strange that a manufacturer would cover a contractor’s workmanship. And rightly so – what if someone inexperienced installs the roof?

Well, a roofer isn’t able to offer you the Golden Pledge warranty unless they are certified by GAF as a “Master Elite Contractor”.  And only 3% of all roofing contractors have qualified as Master Elite contractors! As you may have guessed, Lodde & Sons Roofing is one of the 3%.

Even then, the GAF Golden Pledge warranty is only given to your roof after a GAF factory-trained inspector inspects and rates your new roof. This ensures the Master Elite contractor’s installation was done properly and up to GAF’s high standards. We typically receive a 10/10 rating on these inspections.

Once you have a GAF Golden Pledge warranty, you will have workmanship coverage for 25 years (20 for 3-tab shingles).
