CertainTeed SureStart Warranty: Comprehensive New Roof Coverage



What makes a CertainTeed SureStart new roof warranty different than other warranties? There are a number of things. If manufacturing defects in the shingles are found during the applicable period, SureStart covers:

100% of Materials

“All shingles required to repair or replace the defective product will be provided free. No exceptions.”

100% of Labor

“All labor required to repair defective shingles or apply new shingles to replace the defective shingles wi9ll be paid by CertainTeed, based on local fair market value for labor.”

Without Prorating the Cost

“Replacement coverage of material and labor is not prorated or otherwise reduced during the applicable SureStart period.”

Protection Can Be Transferred

“The CertainTeed warranty with SureStart protection can be transferred from the original consumer to the subsequent property owner during the SureStart period for the remaining duratio of the warranty.”

SureStart PLUS

If you get your new roof installed by a qualified contractor with an up-to-date ShingleMaster or SELECT ShingleMaster credential, and the roof meets the Integrity Roof System requirements, you can upgrade your warranty coverage to SureStart Plus. “SureStart PLUS extends the duration and coverage of standard SureStart protection for the installed CertainTeed roofing products.” To learn more about coverage details, visit the CertainTeed website.
