Replacing Roof Shingles: Why Quality Counts

When you work with Greater Purpose Construction, you partner with a roofing company that uses only the highest-quality materials in every project, and for every budget. This includes roof shingles, which are important not just aesthetically but also functionally. Keep the following points in mind when you’re ready to source a new roof or solicit roof repairs in Portland.  

Quality Roof Shingles Provide Roof Protection

Quality shingles provide exceptional protection against various threats. For example, a shingle’s resistance to wind is important, especially if you reside in an area where high winds are a threat. Properly installed shingles, along with support from bonds and fasteners, should be able to resist strong winds, some of which can gust up to 150 miles per hour. Impacts are another important variable: things like hail, falling tree branches, wind-strewn debris, severe downpours, and anything else that could dent, crack, or break your roofing shingles. A quality shingle can withstand any of these things and hold up under pressure.


Most critically, shingles are vital for protecting your home’s interior from moisture caused by snow, rain, ice, and the like. If your roof’s shingles are of subpar quality, you’re opening yourself to the possibility of leaks, which in turn lead to major issues like mold and mildew. 


Quality Roof Shingles Boost Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency has never been more important than it is today, and quality shingles go a long way towards preventing wastefulness. A strong roof promotes good ventilation, top-notch insulation, and minimal air leaks, all of which add up to lower heating expenses in winter and AC costs in summer. 


Increase Home Equity with Quality Roof Shingles

Quality shingles add up to a quality roof, one which greatly enhances curb appeal – an essential criteria for increasing your home’s equity. A house whose roof is neglected and in need of repairs is a turnoff to potential homebuyers, whereas a roof that’s free of dents, sags, and moss will only increase a home’s value.
