Your Build - Winter 2017

Phase3 Interior & Exterior Finishing Winter 2017 53 now come with a standard warranty for a minimum of twelve months. However, despite this, research has shown that 70 per cent of contractors have had to replace a roofing product through a warranty claim at some time or other. Therefore, as part of your product checks, it’s essential to consider and select products with comprehensive and robust warranties. A reliable warranty not only instils trust with the manufacturer, it gives you confidence that the product you have chosen is of a high quality. In the event of product defect or failure, it also offers you reassurance that the manufacturer can be relied upon to stand by your claim. However, as several products will have been used in the build-up of your roof, you will have several warranties too, as a separate warranty will be issued for each product. If you are solely responsible for your self-build project, keeping track of all the warranties and storing them safely will be a job in itself! So, imagine if problems arise and you have to make a claim, you would then have to deal with multiple suppliers too – which can be difficult and time-consuming. Single package warranty That’s why the simplicity of a single package warranty appeals to many self-builders. Instead of several warranties, a single package warranty has just one warranty that covers all key products in the build-up of a roof for up to 15 years, and normally at no additional cost. Should the unthinkable happen, there’s only one warranty to dig out, one claim to make, and one supplier to deal with. Furthermore, you're not restricted in your choice of products with some of the more comprehensive packages on offer. SIG Roofing’s ONE Warranty, for example, actually includes the complete ranges of concrete, clay and slate appearance tiles, as well as fibre cement slates from many of the UK’s leading manufacturers such as; Marley Eternit, Redland, Sandtoft, Keymer, SIGA Natural Slate, SIGA Heritage Reproduction Stone, SIGnature Clay Tiles, and Russell Roof Tiles. Most packages include a wide range of accessories too. All products included in such packages are usually of an extremely high standard, so you can rest easy knowing that you are installing top quality products. More importantly, in the event of a claim, either yourself or your builder will benefit from a reduced and simplified administration process by just dealing with one company at any time throughout the process. No small task Taking on the reins of a self-build project with all the challenges that this can bring is no small task; so, knowing that the products you are using are top quality and backed by a robust warranty will help give you the reassurance you need. In addition, by working with a roofing supplier that has a solid reputation, a long history of sourcing the products, and who can provide you with a single package warranty means you can relax knowing that your dream home has the cover it deserves. www.sigroofing.co.uk
