Warranty and Contractor Information

Fontana Paper Mills offers two types of tile roofing warranties; our new Standard Level Material Warranty and our Premium No Leak Warranty for our Fontana Vulca Seal Organic Base 40# or Vulca Seal G40 underlayment.

Our Premium Level No Leak Limited Warranty  has a 10 year single ply, and 20-year double ply that goes beyond any other manufacturer warranties. This premium level warranty warrants coverage over the installation methods as well as the products performance. In the event of a leak, the underlayment material, as well as the cost of labor is covered for the repair.  This premium level warranty is only available to contractors certified by the Tile Roofing Institute www.tileroofing.org.

Our newly released standard level “Limited Material Warranty” covers material defects only for Vulca Seal Organic 30# (ASTM D226 Type II), Vulca Seal Organic Base 40#, or Vulca Seal G40 for the period of 10 years for a single ply, and 20 years for a double. This warranty has no charge, requires no certification, and covers the replacement of any defective material only.

Please call our office at 909-823-4100 and ask for Douglas Thagard for more information. If you are a current Fontana warranty user, scroll down the page to register your product.
