Posted: in

Finding a roof with the right roofing warranty for your Michigan home can be overwhelming. Luckily, Sherriff Goslin Roofing Services offers a variety of roofing warranty options to provide you with peace of mind and help you protect your investment. Let’s explore the different types of roofing warranties available through Sherriff Goslin and tackle valuable insights and information on how to select the best one for your Midwestern abode.

Understanding Roofing Warranties

Before we jump in, let’s first define what a roofing warranty is. Roofing warranties are an essential guarantee that your investment is protected, and they come in various forms, offering different levels of coverage and protection. Here, we'll delve into the specific roofing warranties available through Sherriff Goslin Roofing Services which will help you make an informed decision.

Sherriff Goslin 30-Year Roofing Warranty

The Sherriff Goslin 30-Year Warranty is provided in collaboration with the Atlas Roofing Corporation and covers shingle products. Here's a breakdown of this warranty:

Limited Warranty Period

The warranty covers shingle products installed in the United States and Canada on or after February 2021.

Premium Protection Period

During the initial years of your roof's life, this period provides full labor and material coverage, specific to the product. The warranty specifies product-specific premium protection periods.

Prorated Limited Warranty Period

After the Premium Protection Period, valid claims related to manufacturing defects are adjusted based on a decreasing monthly replacement cost. The proration factor is 10% for specific products after the 45th year.

Limitations and Restrictions for the Lifetime Limited Warranty

The lifetime coverage lasts as long as the original property owner possesses the home. However, it ends upon property sale or the last homeowner's death, unless properly transferred during the first five years. It's available for single-family site-built detached residences.

Limitations of Remedies and Liability

The warranty outlines maximum remedies for shingles containing manufacturing defects and is the sole remedy provided by ATLAS.

Wind Limited Warranty

This warranty covers damage by wind gusts up to a specified maximum wind speed. High wind speed provisions are available for specific products.

Algae Resistance Limited Warranty

The warranty covers shingles' resistance to black streaks due to algae growth. The warranty duration varies depending on the shingle product and installation.

Art-Loc® System Warranty

The Art-Loc System Advantage Roofing System offers extended protection for our patented Art-Loc shingle applications when properly installed with Atlas premium products. The warranty period covers the first ten years with the exclusive Sherriff-Goslin Company guarantee. Here's an overview of this warranty:

Limited Shingle Warranty

The warranty covers shingle products installed in the United States and Canada on or after October 2014.

Limited Warranty Period

We provide limited warranty coverage based on the Warranty Benefits chart, which features the product Art-Loc Shingles featuring Scotchgard Protector that entitles the roof owner to 30 years of Wind Warranty, Algae Resistance, and other benefits of the Diamond Warranty.

Premium Protection Period

Similar to the Sherriff Goslin 30-Year Warranty, this period offers full labor and material coverage during the initial years of your roof's life.

Prorated Limited Warranty Period

After the Premium Protection Period, valid claims related to manufacturing defects are adjusted based on a decreasing monthly replacement cost.

Limitations and Restrictions 

This warranty lasts for 30 years, but limitations and restrictions apply. It's available for both original and second homeowners.


You can transfer this warranty only once during the first ten years from the installation date.

StormMaster and Pinnacle Pristine Warranties

Sherriff Goslin also offers roofing warranties for specific Atlas products: StormMaster Hip & Ridge Shingles and the Pinnacle Pristine Shingles. These warranties cover features such as algae resistance, wind resistance, and impact resistance. The duration and specific coverage depend on the product and installation details.

Finding and Choosing the Right Warranty

We understand that choosing the right roofing warranty for your lovely Michigan home is not only a bit nerve-wracking but also entails several important considerations:

  • Installation: Proper installation is crucial for warranty validity. Ensure that the roofing company follows the product's application instructions.
  • Transferability: If you plan to sell your home, consider warranties with transferability options to better enhance your property's value to the buyer.
  • Limitations: Understand the limitations and restrictions of each warranty as well as the claim reporting procedures.
  • Local Climate: Consider the local climate and weather conditions in Michigan when selecting your roofing warranty. Opt for features that offer protection against relevant climate challenges.
