CertainTeed provides SureStart™ protection for all of its shingle products. In its warranty packet the manufacturer states, “Simply put, if a manufacturing defect is discovered during the SureStart period, CertainTeed will provide reimbursement of 100% of the reasonable cost of the shingles and labor to repair the defective shingles or apply new shingles to replace the defective shingles (exclusive of costs of tear-off, metal work and disposal). SureStart protection begins on the date of application and is not prorated or otherwise reduced during the SureStart period.”
As a ShingleMaster™ Company, Refined Roofing can provide additional coverage to you, the homeowner. This coverage, known as SureStart™ Plus provides the backing of the manufacturer and pays additional expenses for warranty-related repairs that are not ordinarily covered by most warranties.
