What you should expect from a high quality roof:
Durability – long lifespan; stands up to high winds, heavy rain, snow and hail; less maintenance; few replacements
Protection – doesn’t leak; protects the inside and outside of the structure; provides proper drainage; keeps family safe during extreme weather.
Efficiency – proper ventilation and insulation; saves energy; lowers heating and cooling bills; helps HVAC equipment last longer; helps prevent ice dams, possible energy efficiency tax credits
Increased Home Value – If you’re planning to resell your home, it will be worth more with a high-quality roof.
What you can expect from a low quality roof:
Unreliable – vulnerable to premature leaks; can’t stand up to pressure from snow; peels off in high winds
Quite Temporary – short lifespan; deteriorates at a faster rate; high maintenance and unnecessary repair costs
High Energy Costs – improper ventilation and insulation decrease energy efficiency; high energy bills; heating and cooling unit must work harder
Potentially Dangerous – Low quality materials combined with improper ventilation can be a fire hazard and also cause mold issues
