Standard-quality roof shingles will save you a lot of money on your new roof installation. However, they’ll likely have a much shorter life than high-quality shingles or options like metal and tile. They’ll also be more susceptible to damage, so you’ll need to pay for more repairs.
It’s worth considering a roofing contractor that is approved by a top manufacturer like GAF. They’ll be able to get you the best price on high-quality shingles and do a great job installing them. Superior shingles can last for up to 50 years compared to 20 for cheap options – this means that you’ll be paying at least twice as much over the roof’s lifespan than it says on the price tag.
