This System Plus Limited Warranty covers certain GAF roofing products installed on your roof (the “GAF Products”) including GAF Asphaltic Shingles, GAF Ridge Cap Shingles, GAF Starter Strip Shingles, GAF Leak Barrier Products, GAF Roof Deck Protection Products, GAF Cobra® Attic Ventilation Products, and GAF-labeled Ultimate Pipe Flashing® with EasySleeve (manufactured by Lifetime Tool® & Building Products LLC), in the unlikely event that they contain a manufacturing defect.
Note: This limited warranty does not cover low- slope membranes, Master Flow® Ventilation Products, ShingleMatchTM Roof Accessory Paint, or GAF Cornell Ventilated Nail Base Roof Insulation. Please go to gaf.com for a copy of the limited warranties covering these products.
Coverage begins when your GAF Products are installed. (If a GAF AuthorizedTM Home Builder initially registers this warranty for a newly constructed home, coverage begins when you take title to the property and you properly transfer coverage.) Coverage for all GAF Products lasts as long as the warranty for manufacturing defects for the type of shingle installed in the field of the roof. Note: If cut-up GAF Strip Shingles are used instead of the eligible GAF Ridge Cap Shingles, the warranty and non-prorated period for the cut-up strip shingles are the same as they would be if those shingles were used in the field of the roof.
Subject to the provisions below, all GAF Asphaltic Shingles other than Royal Sovereign® and Marquis WeatherMax® Shingles carry a Lifetime limited warranty (as defined below) against manufacturing defects and a non- prorated period of 50 years.
The word “Lifetime” means as long as you, the original owner(s) [or the second owner(s) if coverage was properly transferred within the first 20 years], own the property where the shingles and/or accessories are installed. The Lifetime warranty term and 50-year non-prorated period are applicable only to shingles and accessories installed on a single-family detached residence owned by individuals. For any other type of owner or building, such as a corporation, governmental entity, religious entity, condominium, or homeowner association, school, apartment building, office building, or multi-use structure, the length of the warranty is 40 years and the non-prorated period is 20 years.
Even if your GAF Products were not properly installed according to GAF’s application instructions or to standard good roofing practices, this limited warranty remains in effect. However, GAF will NOT be liable for and this warranty does NOT apply to:
Effectiveness. This limited warranty will not take effect unless all eligibility requirements have been satisfied, this warranty is registered to you, and your roofing contractor has been paid in full.
