Golden Pledge Warranty
  • The most inclusive warranty available. It covers any manufacturer defects for the entire lifetime of the shingle AND up to 30 yrs of workmanship defects. This also includes tear-off and disposal costs. If any repairs are needed, it will be done by a GAF Master Elite™ Roofing Contractor. As you can tell GAF is very committed to ensuring you always have the best on-hand. Whether it be the contractor or the materials provided for the service, GAF always guarantees the highest quality of work possible. This warranty is also a one-time transferable warranty.
Silver Pledge Warranty
  • This is a mid-level warranty. It does cover 100% of all manufacturer defects for the entire lifetime of the shingle, but the workmanship coverage only lasts 10 years. It also includes tear-off and disposal costs, with a one-time transferable warranty.
Systems Plus Warranty
  • The lowest level warranty. It also includes the coverage of 100% of all manufacturer defects for the entire lifetime of the shingle, but the workmanship is not covered. You also do have to pay for your own disposal fees despite the tear-off cost being covered. It has a one-time transferable warranty.
