Here's a suggestion for anyone having a new roof installed, read in the Henri De Marne section of the
Daily Herald newspaper:

Get a copy of the shingle manufacturer's warranty, the invoice from the distributor to the roofer and the estimate. The distributor's price can be blacked out. Write down the manufacturer's run number from a shingle bundle and keep all of this information where you keep all of your other appliance paperwork. In the event you have a shingle warranty issue you now have all the information you need; contact the distributor/contractor.
