Proper installations, periodic inspections and regular maintenance can keep roofing or siding warranties running smoothly for the long haul.

Brad Van Weelden Roofing and Siding WarrantiesMakers of roofing, siding and other construction materials typically offer various warranties to protect property owners who make a long-term investment in repairing or improving a building’s exterior.

VanWeelden Co. is proud to partner with those such as James Hardie, Owens Corning and DaVinci Roofscapes, all of which offer warranty terms intended to ease the minds of decision-makers in the market to beautify a home or place of business with durable products that stand the test of time.

Our Des Moines-based construction company has been in the business for more than 16 years, working to satisfy the expectations of customers via the installation of the best-quality construction materials we can find. We also appreciate opportunities to educate Iowans who may wonder how to get the most millage out of their roof and siding products, regardless of whether or not you’re in the market for something new.

From providing replacement products to covering installation costs, preferred manufacturers serve consumers with warranties with certain guarantees to fix unexpected defects should they arise in materials or finishes.

Construction warranties, for example, are somewhat similar to a warranty on a vehicle in terms of reasonable requirements, like an expectation to change the oil. In construction, homeowners with a 15-year, 30-year or even 50-year warranty must also pay attention to the details, with the fine print in any given roofing or siding warranty typically referring to inspections or maintenance as a way to make sure everything is “running smoothly.”

To fully benefit from a manufacturer’s warranty, it is also imperative to properly store and install – in accordance with published instructions – exterior home-improvement products. In fact, hiring the wrong contractor or a do-it-yourself project that takes a turn for the worse could ultimately void warranty protections or potentially stall a claim if an unforeseen issue pops down the road.

In short, scheduled maintenance can lengthen the life of a roof. Regular inspections can keep you in the know before a possible issue causes a bigger problem. And proper installations keep everyone on the right track. Not only does such attention to detail help you spot any possible issues early on, it positions you to take action and request a speedy resolution in the unlikely event a problem is found.

The confidence VanWeelden Co. has in the warranties offered by our trusted industry partners is a direct result of both their integrity and commitments to building solid products. We stand behind our work, and if a product we recommend or install fails to live up to the standard of excellence set forth by a manufacturer, you can count on us to be there and help you through the process of making a claim.
