We have a 30 year roof that was professionally installed and has only lasted 14 years. We are going to have to have the entire roof reshingled. We have a very well-maintained home and are surprised that our roof only lasted this long and was wondering if our shingles may have, at some point, been recalled and we are unaware of it. How can one tell if their shingles have been recalled?
Who is your manufacture? If you know the manufacture,the color and any codes to go with your shingle then contact them and inquire.
If you have concerns pertaining to any warranty questions contact your manufacture that your materials are warranted under.If you have a valid claim under your warranty guidelines you could have a justifiable claim.I cannot give you a definite answer if you have a claim or if your roof has failed due to manufacture negligence.
I would contact them (manufacture)and ask for a representative to contact you.Make sure you have all information about the materials,dates of installation,proof of warranty,contractor information etc..Basically anything affiliated with your project.
