Types of GAF Warranties
GAF Roofing System Limited Warranty
All GAF roofing products, including shingles and accessories, are covered by the GAF Shingle & Accessory Limited Warranty. You don’t need to do or submit anything to obtain this warranty. This warranty is applicable if a GAF product you purchased has a manufacturing defect.
System Plus Limited Warranty
The System Plus Limited Warranty offers the same coverage as the GAF Roofing System Limited Warranty, but its Smart Choice® Protection Period is extended from 10 years to 50 years, including the tear-off.
Silver Pledge™ Limited Warranty
The Silver Pledge™ Limited Warranty has the same inclusions as the System Plus Limited Warranty, but it offers 10 years of workmanship coverage and disposal.
Golden Pledge® Limited Warranty
With the same coverage as the Silver Pledge Limited Warranty, the Golden Pledge® Limited Warranty provides workmanship coverage for 20, 25 or 30 years, depending on the shingles you purchased.
What Is Lifetime Limited Warranty?
“Lifetime” refers to the span of coverage provided by your GAF warranty and as long as the original owner owns the property where the GAF shingles and accessories are installed. This warranty only applies to shingles and accessories installed on a single-family detached residence owned by individuals. The length of the warranty is 40 years for other types of owners or buildings.
Do You Need to Register It?
The GAF Shingle & Accessory Limited Warranty and GAF Roofing System Limited Warranty don’t need registration. You just need to keep and present your proof of purchase, such as your contract with your roof replacement contractor or receipt from the store where you bought the GAF products.
On the other hand, enhanced warranties, such as System Plus Limited Warranty, Silver Pledge Limited Warranty and Golden Pledge Limited Warranty require registration. However, your GAF Certified Contractor should take care of their registration. If you’ve purchased an enhanced GAF warranty from a certified roofer and have not received a copy of it within 60 days, immediately contact GAF.
