The risk to the roofing contractor is many manufacturers disclaim those implied warranties and replace them with their own particular express warranties. To the extent a roofing contractor is warranting something the manufacturer has disclaimed, the roofing contractor risks assuming responsibility for the quality of goods manufactured by others. Because the roofing contractor is not a manufacturer, his or her sole obligation regarding any warranty of materials should be to pass along to the owner whatever warranties a manufacturer provides.
