Commercial Roofing Warranties


We are valued for our commitment to consistent quality, as well as our integrity when it comes to standing behind our promise to keep roofs in watertight condition. Our Integrity Roof System® Limited Warranties represent the strength of this commitment. However, it is important to understand that a building owner has a list of requirements they must follow to maintain their warranty coverage.

Please click here to read and review a summary what is (and is not) covered under our limited warranties, and what is required of a building owner.


Flintlastic®/Flintglas® Asphaltic Membrane Warranties

CertainTeed offers standard asphaltic membrane warranty durations between ten and twenty-five years. Additionally, Gold Star Contractors can increase warranty durations by 25% by engaging in an Integrity Maintenance Agreement with their client. CertainTeed offers three warranty options: Limited Warranty on Materials, Integrity Roof System Limited Warranty, and Integrity Roof System No Dollar Limit (NDL) Limited Warranty. CertainTeed asphaltic membrane warranty durations are based on a combination of system specification and product selection.
CertainTeed Commercial Roofing publishes popular roof system warranty durations categorized by material type: APP, SBS and BUR. The “SBS Warranty Durations” document covers our SBS roof systems installed with a torch, hot asphalt or cold adhesive; our popular self-adhered SBS roof systems are published in our “SA Warranty Durations”. Hybrid roof systems, with mixed materials or application methods, are categorized by the cap sheet.

Inspections & Maintenance

All roofs require regular inspections and periodic maintenance to achieve their expected life.  Roofs should be expected at least twice yearly, in the spring and fall.  Additionally, all roofs should be inspected after any severe weather or storms.  The CertainTeed Commercial Roof Maintenance Program is designed to assist owners in establishing a regular and beneficial roof inspection and maintenance program.  Failure to properly maintain the roof system voids all CertainTeed Commercial Roofing Limited Warranties.
