Using the best roofing materials maximizes your investment

By Wade Griffin Roofing | March 3, 2014

You’ve received your tax return and it’s time to invest in your roof.  Being that a good amount of your roof installation costs are labor related, have you asked what brand of roofing materials are being used for the “great deal” you’re getting ?  Think about it – your roof is a long term investment, so why would you invest in any material that is sub-standard? To save a few hundred dollars? Everyone wants to save money here and there.  The best place to cut corners is at the grocery store or cutting coupons, where you can also buy generic products.  Would you use this same principle for a roof replacement or repair?  Not a good plan. Let’s say you’ve received a quote from a trusted local roofing company, and instead went with the fly-by-night cheapo quote in order to save 15%.  In order to give you such a price break this person slashes that 15 percent directly off of his material budget by using poorly constructed materials. Now you are spending 15 percent less for a roof who’s life is 30 percent shorter.  In good conditions, a standard 3-tab shingle roof can last up to 25-35 years with high quality materials.  Knock 30 percent off of that roof’s life, and now you are replacing your roof 10 years earlier than necessary.  Now you are incurring more labor and material costs sooner.  How is that saving money ?

The smart way to approach this long term investment is to go with the best materials possible.  Examples of top materials we use are:  GAFCertainTeed, Owens Corning, and Velux.  Charlotte’s weather has been strangely unpredictable in the past few years.  Choose the best roofing materials possible, and feel confident in your investment.
