Asphalt shingle manufacturers offer limited warranties on their products. These warranties cover only the shingles, not labor, and these warranties are prorated according to the age of the shingles. However, unless there is a catastrophic event, shingles almost always last their warranted life span. When looking for shingles, it’s more important to get the best product at the best price instead of worrying about warranties.

Here are the most important things to look for in a warranty:

  • Life expectancy.
  • Wind damage coverage.
  • Algae and fungus coverage.
  • Material and/or labor warranty.
