Recognized as a Roofing Industry Leader in Sarasota
At Red Dog’s Roofing, we’ve been selected by Owens Corning to be part of a network of roofing professionals. The common thread is a commitment to excellent service, reliability, and exceptional craftsmanship. To become an Owens Corning Roofing Preferred Contractor, a business must meet the following qualifications:
Minimum of two years operating under the same business name
In good standing with the Better Business Bureau
Holds at least $1 million in general liability insurance
Carries all required state and local licensing and insurance
Knowledge of the latest industry standards and technology
Dedication to customer service and professional craftsmanship
Thanks to our certification as an Owens Corning Preferred Contractor, we’re able to provide a Preferred Roofing Limited Warranty on our asphalt shingle roofing installations. This warranty far exceeds most other warranties that you’ll find on the market, and it covers both our workmanship, as well as the shingles themselves.
Our Unbeatable Roofing Warranty
While most other contractors provide a short warranty (often three or five years of coverage) or no warranty at all to cover their workmanship, we offer a full ten years of coverage if your roof should fail due to a mistake in our craftsmanship. Plus, since we’ve partnered with Owens Corning as a Preferred Roofing Contractor company, Owens Corning provides numerous warranties on their products. When you count on Red Dog’s Roofing for your upcoming asphalt shingle installation, you’ll enjoy all of the following guarantees:
If you’re concerned about your shingles failing within your lifetime, you needn’t fret. Owens Corning backs their products, including shingles, underlayments, ventilation components, water barriers, and other components with lifetime coverage — which means that your Owens Corning roof will be covered for as long as you are the homeowner. You can also transfer this warranty once under the same address (so long as you register a homeowner transfer within 60 days of the sale of the house).
This may be the most beneficial proponent of the Owens Corning Preferred Roofing Limited Warranty. Since we’ve partnered with Owens Corning, we’re able to provide a full 10 years of workmanship coverage for our workmanship. Unlike other contractors out there (who often cover their workmanship for three years or less — or not at all), we back our work with a decade of coverage. So, if your shingles should start to slip or your roof should begin to leak, we’ll be there to repair it. That means peace of mind for our clients.
If you’re worried about the high winds here in Florida, you can rest assured that your roof is covered against severe winds. Owens Corning covers their roofs with 15 full years of blow-off coverage for winds up to 110 miles per hour. If you have Owens Corning’s Duration shingles installed, you’ll enjoy even more coverage — Duration shingles are guaranteed for wind speeds up to 130 miles per hour. We recommend these shingles if you’re concerned about hurricane storms.
Algae can damage your roof, while leaving it discolored and unsightly. Fortunately, Owens Corning shingles come with StreakGuard technology, and they’re rated to remain free of algae for at least 10 years. If you invest in Owens Corning shingles, you can enjoy 10 years of coverage against cyanobacteria Gloeocapsa magma algae which normally turns shingles a brownish-black color.
During the TRU PROtection® coverage period, the labor costs and material costs are covered for any components that become defective. You won’t have to pay a dime to have work performed on your roof in order to repair faulty components (take note, the TRU PROtection® coverage does not cover tear-off costs or the cost of recycling shingles, if at all applicable).
Beyond the TRU PROtection® coverage period, you’ll still enjoy an extended material warranty, which ensures that you’ll still be compensated as your shingles age. Owens Corning pays a prorated amount for any shingles that fail during this warranty period.
To obtain your warranty, you’ll have to meet a couple of simple requirements. First of all, you have to work with an Owens Corning certified Platinum or Preferred Contractor — here at Red Dog’s, we’re Preferred Contractors. Owens Corning further outlines their contractor requirements: “Your Owens Corning® Roofing System must be installed by a certified Owens Corning® Roofing Platinum or Preferred Contractor and your contractor must register the warranty within 60 days of the installation.” In addition, to gain protection for other components of your roof (e.g. your exhaust vents), you’ll have to utilize Owens Corning brand products. Here’s another outline of the requirements, posted by Owens Corning: At least 3 components must be installed, which may include “underlayments, intake and exhaust ventilation, hip & ridge shingles, ice & water barriers, and starter shingles.”
Answers to Our Frequently Asked Warranty Questions
You’ll need to provide a few things to Owens Corning to ensure that you are registered for a protective warranty. Be sure to have the following information handy when registering: your installation date, the shingle type that is being installed (as well as the color of the shingle), the total square footage of the roof installation (in “squares” — one “square” is equal to 100 square feet of roofing).
Registration is simple. Visit warranty.owenscorning.com and fill out their form to register your roof with the Preferred Roofing Limited Warranty.
Yes. Preferred Roofing Limited Warranties can be transferred once during the lifetime of the warranty. A homeowner may transfer the warranty one time to a new homeowner once the home has been purchased. Warranty coverage continues as it was from the date of the installation.
You’ll have to transfer the warranty covering your roof right away if you choose to sell your home. Owens Corning lays out the parameters for properly transferring their Preferred Roofing Limited Warranties:
“Warranties can be transferred to the second owner of the roof as long as the transfer occurs within 60 days of the real estate transfer. Warranties can be transferred by clicking on the “Transfer a Warranty” link below or calling 1-800-ROOFING. When you call, please be prepared to provide documentation including proof of purchase, proof of ownership and transfer fee based on the year your roof was installed.”
In the event that your roof is damaged, whether by weather, poor installation, or faulty shingles, you can file a claim by heading over to warranty.owenscorning.com to fill out their form.
While Owens Corning does offer some warranty coverage for commercial buildings and non-single family residences, their warranties vary, and these warranties tend to have less coverage than Preferred Roofing Limited Warranties for single-family residence homeowners. You can learn more about the specific warranty coverage you can obtain for your non-single family home or commercial building by contacting Owens Corning.
Yes. All Owens Corning shingles are covered by their Preferred Roofing Limited Warranty. In fact, some shingle types actually carry even better warranties, depending on the shingle type. For example, the Berkshire® shingle by Owens Corning actually comes with extended coverage against algae. Owens Corning’s Berkshire shingles are protected against algae for 15 years — whereas their other shingle types are only protected for 10 years.

The Benefits of an Owens Corning Warranty-Backed Roof
If you’re seeking the perfect, long-lasting solution for your roof, we’re here to convince you that the Preferred Roofing Limited Warranty by Owens Corning is unparalleled. You’ll enjoy peace of mind, you’ll add lasting value to your home, and you won’t have to worry about a feud between your contractor and shingle manufacturer if your roof becomes damaged.
Enjoy peace of mind
When you install a new roof over your head, ideally, it will last forever. Unfortunately, nothing in this world lasts forever. That said, the Preferred Roofing Limited Warranty protects the roof of your home for your lifetime (if you’re the homeowner at your residence), and that’s a guarantee that you can rest assured will provide lasting protection.
Boost your home value
Installing a roof with Red Dog’s and Owens Corning also boosts the value of your home — both because it adds protection and a beautiful aesthetic, and because the warranty is transferable. A transferable lifetime warranty can be an excellent selling point, should you opt to put your home on the market.
Your contractor and supplier work together
When roofs fail on other homes, the homeowner may not know who to call to make a claim, and the contractor and shingle-manufacturer may bicker about who is at fault. That can cause a headache, and it could leave you, the homeowner, without the money or help you desperately need to keep your home protected. With the Preferred Roofing Limited Warranty, your contractor and supplier are on the same side, so you can rest assured that your roof will be protected, even when the worst happens. You’ll only have to make a quick claim to ensure that your roof remains solid throughout its lifetime.
