Built! New Living Facilities, Enhance Home Thursday, April 6, 1967 Algeria, (la.) Upper Des Moines-9 New Long-Term Building Guarantees Add Peace-of-Mind A homeowner who undertakes a home improvement project today can assure his own satisfaction with the job by specifying building materials that carry long-term, manufacturer-backed guarantees and warranties. The trend toward longer and more comprehensive guarantees for building products is part of the growing practice throughout American industry to assure customers longer service, lower maintenance and greater satisfaction from the products they buy. '$ Factory guarantees and war^| ranties are now available in '« many categories of building 'I products, including ceilings, J doors, plumbing, fireplaces, '» floor coverings, insulating j{ glass, heating systems, insula- i tion, kitchen appliances, wall I paneling, paint, roofing, exte- ^ rior siding, wallboard, windows <•', and many others. J The significance of these i guarantees to the homeowner *' is illustrated by the fact that >l he can now obtain asphalt roof j .shingles for either a new home \ or for re-roofing that will last f the life of the mortgage on the •.' house. ? Heavyweight asphalt shingles — .those weighing 290 5 pounds or more for each 100 ( square feet of roof — carry a I written guarantee, bond or warranty from the manufacturer covering the home owner against defects in materials up to 25 years. The new long-term guaran- ; tees available with heavyweight asphalt shingles mean the homeowner is less con•' cerned with roof repairs, main- j tenance or replacement. They | are also a good sales point when selling a house. , The longer roofing guarantees were made possible by the trend toward heavier weights of asphalt shingles. The National Bureau of Standards says the heavier the shingle, the longer its life expectancy. In actual use, heavyweight shingles can be expected to last twice as long as standard weight shingles. There are 23 manufacturers producing heavyweight asphalt shingles today, as against only five three years ago. : Since heavyweights are thicker, they have a more pronounced shadowline when applied to a roof. Their extra weight also makes possible deeper textures. And, like other asphalt shingles, heavyweights are available in a wide variety of colors. Opaque mineral granules, which are colored by a ceramic process and embedded in the asphalt, also lengthen the life of the shingles and increase their fire resistance. The labor cost for installation of heavyweight shingles is approximately the same as for standard weight shingles.
