A: If the warranty contract covers a roof on owner-occupied real property containing no more than three dwelling units that is used exclusively for residential purposes, the services are not taxable, whether provided by the warrantor or by a subcontractor performing the services for the warrantor. If the warrantor bills an amount to the property owner for servicing the roof that is not covered under the warranty contract, such as a deductible or an amount over a maximum coverage contained in the warranty contract, this amount is not taxable when the services are performed on owner-occupied residential real property.
