Investing in a new roof is one of the biggest decisions you’ll make as a homeowner.

But finding a good, qualified, responsible contractor can seem overwhelming. Where do you start?

Or, if you’re further curious about our partnership with Owens Corning, you can learn more about their exclusive warranties, learn about Owens Corning’s requirements for their Preferred Warranty, find out answers to frequently asked questions, and learn the benefits of opting for an Owens Corning Preferred Contractor over other contractors out there — all listed below.
An Exclusive Warranty
Owens Corning backs their shingles and our workmanship with a System Advantage™ Preferred Roofing Limited Warranty. Unlike other limited lifetime warranties on the market, you’ll enjoy protection that covers both the workmanship of our roofing installations, as well as the craftsmanship of Owens Corning manufactured shingles.
The Preferred Protection Roofing System Limited Warranty provides the following coverage:
Lifetime coverage for shingles and other components: Owens Corning provides warranty coverage for the lifetime of a homeowner. The warranty remains in effect for as long as you own your home. Warranties can be transferred to a second homeowner so long as the transfer is registered within 60 days of the purchase of the home.
TRU PROtection® coverage for 50 years: During the TRU PROtection coverage period, any labor costs are covered for defective shingles. Take note, this coverage does not cover the cost of a tear-off or shingle disposal costs (if there are any).
Extended materials coverage beyond 50 years: Beyond the TRU PROtection coverage period, Owens Corning still covers their materials against damage. You will be compensated for any shingle damage incurred, minus the decreased value of the shingles since their initial installation date.
Blow-off coverage for 15 years: If you’re concerned about high winds destroying your roof, you can rest assured that your home remains protected with Owens Corning’s blow-off coverage. Your roof will be protected if it is damaged in wind speeds up to 110 miles per hour (or 130 miles per hour for Duration shingles). Damage from wind gusts is also covered.
StreakGuard™ algae resistance for 10 years: StreakGuard coverage ensures that your roof will remain free from algae which can be unsightly and damaging. StreakGuard coverage protects against cyanobacteria Gloeocapsa magma algae which can turn your shingles a brownish-black color.
Workmanship coverage for 10 years: This is a big one! Owens Corning backs their contractors (including, of course, the crew here at Red Dog’s) with a warranty covering workmanship. If you notice a leak or missing shingles caused by workmanship on your roof, the repairs will be performed free of charge. That’s great news, since most other contractors only include warranties that last for three or five years (or no warranty at all).
The Preferred Roofing Limited Warranty is only available through Owens Corning Preferred Contractors. As Owens Corning notes on their site, “Your Owens Corning® Roofing System must be installed by a certified Owens Corning® Roofing Platinum or Preferred Contractor and your contractor must register the warranty within 60 days of the installation.” Red Dog’s Roofing is an Owens Corning Roofing Preferred Contractor, which means that your newly installed Owens Corning roof will be eligible for the Preferred Roofing Limited Warranty.
Also, if you’re having us install other roofing components alongside the asphalt shingles of your roof, your components may also be covered under the Preferred Roofing Limited Warranty. Owens Corning outlines the requirements as such: At least three components must be installed to gain warranty protection for said components, including “underlayments, intake and exhaust ventilation, hip & ridge shingles, ice & water barriers, and starter shingles.”
FAQ About the Preferred Roofing Limited Warranty
What will I need to register a warranty through Owens Corning?
You’ll need to have the installation date, the shingle type and color, and the number of squares (the total square footage of your roofing installation — one “square” equals 100 square feet) installed for your roof in order to register for a Preferred Roofing Limited Warranty.
Where should I go to register my Preferred Roofing Limited Warranty?
You can register your warranty through Owens Corning. Head to warranty.owenscorning.com to register your warranty.
Can I transfer my warranty to someone who purchased my home?
Yes. Warranties can be transferred once over the lifetime of the warranty, from the initial homeowner to a secondary homeowner who has purchased the residence. Preferred Roofing Limited Warranty cannot be transferred more than once. Coverage continues from the time of the initial installation.
How do I transfer the warranty?
Owens Corning has layed out details on how to transfer a warranty from one homeowner to another. Here’s what they have to say:
“Warranties can be transferred to the second owner of the roof as long as the transfer occurs within 60 days of the real estate transfer. Warranties can be transferred by clicking on the “Transfer a Warranty” link below or calling 1-800-ROOFING. When you call, please be prepared to provide documentation including proof of purchase, proof of ownership and transfer fee based on the year your roof was installed.”
My roof is damaged, how do I submit a claim?
Filing a claim is easy. Simply head to warranty.owenscorning.com and fill out their form.
Why is it important to find an Owens Corning Preferred Contractor?
If you’re considering a different contractor, yet you’re opting to install Owens Corning products on your roof, you’re missing out on exclusive warranty options. While Owens Corning provides warranties on all of their products, the Preferred Roofing Limited Warranty is far superior to their basic warranty. For instance, you’ll have material and workmanship coverage for a full 10 years with a Preferred Roofing Limited Warranty — meanwhile, with a standard warranty, you won’t have any workmanship coverage through Owens Corning.
Does lifetime coverage cover commercial buildings or non-single family homes?
No. While Owens Corning still provides some warrantied coverage for commercial buildings and non-single family homes, that coverage is reduced, and will vary depending on the building(s) in question and the products in use during the installation. You can learn more about warranty coverage for a non-single family home or a commercial building roofing installation by reaching out to Owens Corning.
Do protection periods vary from shingle to shingle?
Yes. While most protection periods are the same for all Owens Corning shingle products, some shingles have added protection periods. For instance, Owens Corning’s Berkshire® shingles come with an extended algae protection warranty, where algae protection coverage is actually 15 years (instead of 10). You can find additional information about exclusive product warranties by navigating through Owens Corning shingle products.
How can I learn more about my warranty?
If you have an existing Owens Corning warranty on a roof that we’ve installed, or if you’re considering installing a warranty-backed Owens Corning roof, feel free to reach out to us with any questions that you may have. We’re here to help!
The Benefits of the Preferred Roofing Limited Warranty
When you’re shopping around for the best roofing materials and the best roofing contractor for an installation, it pays to find products backed by a warranty and contractors who will stand by their work. Fortunately, with Red Dog’s Roofing and Owens Corning, you can trust that you’re installing high-quality shingles, and you’re counting on expert contractors to do so. That’s what makes the Preferred Roofing Limited Warranty so valuable. Its guarantees will continually ensure that you have a strong, sturdy roof over your head. Beyond that, the benefits are numerous:
Enjoy all around peace of mind.
When you put a new roof over your head, you shouldn’t be preoccupied with the next windstorm, a poor installation, or shingles that fail at Mother Nature’s first test. That’s why we stand behind our work here at Red Dog’s Roofing, and that’s why Owens Corning offers their Preferred Roofing Limited Warranties. You can rest assured that your roof will last for decades on end. And if it doesn’t, we’ll be happy to replace your roof under this spectacular coverage.
Don’t worry about bickering between your manufacturer and contractor.
With other roofing contractors, you may have two seperate warranties. Your roofing manufacturer may have a warranty to back their materials, and the roofing contractor may have a warranty to back their workmanship. While that sounds like a decent compromise, you may find yourself in a bind if your roof fails. If you have a failing roof and its difficult to determine whether the roofing material or the workmanship is to blame, you may be stuck watching your contractor and the roofing manufacturer passing the buck — the manufacturer will blame the contractor, and the contractor will blame the manufacturer. And somehow, you’ll be stuck with a broken roof or a bill that you really shouldn’t pay.
With Red Dog’s Roofing and Owens Corning, you won’t have to fret, even when something happens to your roof. As roofing partners, we’ll work together to ensure that your roof is fixed as soon as possible, and so long as you have coverage under your warranty, you won’t have to pay a dime for poor shingles or a mistake in our workmanship. We cover those mishaps, and there won’t be a quarrel should you have to report roof damage.
Add value to your home.
As we mentioned before, Owens Corning’s Preferred Roofing Limited Warranties can be transferred once, between one homeowner and the next. That means, if someone should purchase your home at any point in the future, your continual roof coverage will be transferable, and that can be a huge selling point for those who are scouring the market for their next home. Often, homeowners place their homes on the market when they’re chalk full of problems (e.g. the furnace is failing, the paint is chipping, etc.). Home buyers will be attracted to your home and its protective, warranty-backed Owens Corning roof. That means an added value that you’ll retain, should you ever decide to put your home on the market.
Cover Your Home With a Roof With Coverage
When it comes to your home, there’s no better investment than a protective roof built out of high-quality shingles that are backed by an unbeatable warranty. After all, your roof is your home’s first line of defense against storms, sun, wind, and anything else that Mother Nature has in store. If you’re looking for the ultimate solution to cap off your home, consider an asphalt shingle roof from Red Dog’s Roofing and Owens Corning.
