Is the GAF Golden Pledge Limited Warranty Worth It?

What is the Golden Pledge Warranty and how can you tell if it’s the best warranty in the business? Gregor Roofing is a GAF Certified Master Elite Contractor. We provide the Golden Pledge Warranty on every roof we install. This article will discuss the GAF Golden Pledge Warranty – what it covers, what it excluded, the duration of the warranty, and more.

What Does the Golden Pledge Limited Warranty Cover & Exclude?

The Warranty covers 100% of all workmanship, material, and labor. Not all warranties cover all three components; workmanship, material, AND labor. The Golden Pledge Warranty covers roofing products installed on your roof 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
  • GAF-labeled Ultimate Pipe Flashing® with EasySleeve® (manufactured by Lifetime Tool® & Building Products LLC)

These products are covered in the unlikely event that they contain a manufacturing defect. Misapplication of your GAF products and flashings at valleys, dormers, chimneys, and plumbing vents is also covered. The warranty is 100% transferrable.

This warranty does NOT cover low-slope membranes, Master Flow Ventilation Products, or GAF ThermaCal Ventilated Nail Base Roofing Insulation.

What is the Duration of the Golden Pledge Warranty?

25 years for 100% of all workmanship, material, and labor and it extends to 50 years for all material, 100%. This means that you’ll never need a new roof on your home again. Other warranties typically provide 10-year coverage.

Who Can Provide the Golden Pledge Warranty?

Only a GAF Certified Master Elite Contractor is able to provide this warranty. Only 3% of all roofing contractors are awarded the Certified Master Elite Contractor status by the manufacturer. The manufacturer must have the utmost confidence in the workmanship and professionalism of the contractor to trust them enough with this certification.

What if I Sell My House?

The warranty is fully transferrable to the new owner of your home within the first 20 years. This makes for an added selling benefit. GAF supplies a written copy of the warranty for your records and transfer.  The GAF Golden Pledge Limited Warranty can only be transferred once. The second homeowner must notify GAF in writing within one year after the property transfer for warranty coverage to be transferred. If the transfer takes place within the first 20 years after installation, the second owner is entitled to the same coverage as the original owner. If the transfer takes place afterward, the length of this warranty shall be reduced to the two-year period after ownership changes.
