Roof claims due to wind are being paid at the expense of property insurers and substantial policyholder deductibles, although roofing manufacturer warranty coverage may exist. Despite the generally clear distinction between warranty coverage and insurance coverage, shingle manufacturers have been upgrading their warranties over the past 10 years to extend well beyond the traditional manufacturer’s defect warranty coverage that generally provides limited value.
