Theoretically rooting will void any warranty!

If your phone hasn't a security feature that recognizes software modifications, you can set your phone back to stock in case of warranty needs.
HTC One S @ PAC-man 4.4.2 [ALPHA1] [12/5/2014] + IceCode Kernel v4.0 // HBoot 2.15 - unlocked BL - S-OFF - NO "tampered & warning text" // TWRP mod 2.7.0.8

Samsung Galaxy W @ ParanoidAndroid 4.3 [BETA3] [6/5/2014] + KhaN Kernel v2.0 // Base: I8150XXLMI // PhilZ CWM 6.01.4

"REVIVED" HTC Wildfire S @ CyanogenMod 11(AWESOME!!!) [6/5/2014] //HBoot 1.09 - unlocked BL // TWRP 2.7.0.0


It won't hurt you to press "thanks" if me or someone other helped you...

As LS.xD already mentioned, most manufaturers will void your warranty if you root it. But you can always unroot and return to the stock image in case you need to use your warranty. But most devices have a mechanism to set a flag to indicate that your device was already rooted in the past (such as Samsung Knox), and even "unrooting" it will not restore your warranty...
