A well-built roof is essential to your home's safety, security, and longevity. However, even the most durable roofs are prone to wear and tear over time. That's why it's essential to have a warranty that covers any defects in the artistry. Blackhawk Roofing offers a limited warranty for ten years from the completion date of your project. This warranty covers services provided by Blackhawk Roofing to the original purchaser.

Important Considerations

When looking for a roofing company, it's crucial to consider the warranty they offer. A good warranty indicates the company's confidence in its artistry. Blackhawk Roofing's limited warranty covers artistry defects and any interior damage due to improper installation. It's important to note that this warranty only covers services provided by Blackhawk Roofing to the original purchaser.

To make sure you're covered under the warranty, there are certain conditions you need to meet. First, you need to retain a copy of the original contract. Second, you need to contact Blackhawk Roofing to arrange for an inspection of your property. Finally, it would be best to make the property accessible to Blackhawk Roofing for warranty repairs.

If you meet these conditions, Blackhawk Roofing will perform all warranty repairs at no cost. They will also perform repairs to the roof installation as described in the original contract and in areas where failure has occurred. However, an exact color match of shingles cannot be assured, as environmental conditions can affect shingle color over time.

It's essential to note that this warranty does not cover any work where Blackhawk Roofing did not supply the roofing materials or installation services. Additionally, this warranty only covers work where someone other than Blackhawk Roofing has attempted to provide roof repairs. The warranty also does not cover the appearance of mildew, mold, or any other environmental conditions.

The owner shall notify Blackhawk Roofing of any leak, roofing defect, failure, or deficiency the owner discovers within ten (10) days of the discovery. If this warranty covers the leak, defect failure, or weakness, Blackhawk Roofing shall have the right to inspect and repair the problem immediately. Blackhawk Roofing shall also have the right to inspect the roof during the warranty term.

Payment per the original contract's terms shall constitute the sole consideration for this warranty. If the owner fails to make payment in full or violates other terms of the warranty, this warranty shall be void and have no further effect.


It's important to note that there are specific exclusions to Blackhawk Roofing's warranty. First, damage to the roofing, property, building, or contents caused by fire, settling, distortions, other building failures, or natural causes, including floods, lightning, high winds, hail, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, or extraordinary or unusual events, is not covered under this warranty.

Second, this warranty does not cover damage to the roofing system or building interior from cracks or openings in the roof substrate, building walls, partitions, or foundations. Vandalism, roofing penetration, damage, or attacks to the roof by third parties or foreign objects or agents, including plant or animal life, is also not covered.

Third, damage caused by alteration or addition upon the erection of a structure on the roof or any use of the roof other than its original intended purpose, including but not limited to snow shoveling, heat cables, salt, etc., is not covered under this warranty.

Finally, this contractor has no implied warranty for roofing materials. This warranty shall not render this contractor liable in any respect for any damage to this building, or any contents thereof, or any loss, injury, or damage to persons or property resulting from any defect in the materials supplied, nor will Blackhawk Roofing be held liable for incidental, special or consequential damages, direct or indirect of any nature to any person sustained from any cause due to manufacturers defect in materials supplied.


In conclusion, having a warranty covering any defects in the workmanship is essential for roofing. Blackhawk Roofing offers a limited warranty for five years from the completion date of your project. This warranty covers services provided by Blackhawk Roofing to the original purchaser. However, there are certain conditions and exclusions that you need to be aware of to ensure that you're covered under the warranty. It's crucial to read the warranty carefully and understand what is and isn't covered. Overall, Blackhawk Roofing's warranty indicates their confidence in their workmanship, and it's a warranty you can trust.
