Roofing Quality

The High Cost of Low Priced Fixes – Why it’s best to go for quality over quantity regarding your roof

In today’s economy, when budgets are often tight, and dollars don’t stretch as far, you may be tempted to cut corners when it comes to your roofing project. It can be tempting to hire the cheapest help and purchase the lower-priced materials or settle for a job that’s easy on the wallet but not exactly good quality.

And that would be a mistake. First and foremost, if you’re in the Calgary area, you need to hire a good-quality contractor with experience and know-how like No Payne Roofing.

Looking at the value of quality renovations is the best way to approach why you always need to put quality over quantity. Think of the increased value of your home that quality work can afford you. Think about the quality of life that comes from a home renovation done right–the first time. Sure, you can technically get more for your money with quantity–but getting more value will become a challenge, and you’ll pay for it in the long run.

Here are some more reasons to put quality first when you take on a roofing project.


Right off the bat, investing in high-quality roofing materials will often mean a safer outcome for everyone involved. Not only is it safer for your home, which is an insurance consideration, but it is also safer for you and the contractors working on the project. The better the quality of the materials, the less chance there is for serious security issues like materials breaking, falls, or debris that can cause damage. When it comes to any renovation, it is helpful to consider how this can impact your life in the long term, not just your wallet at the moment.

Longer Lasting Results

It’s a timeless truth: the better the quality of the material, the longer the job results will last. Especially when it comes to your roof–an investment that you want to last for 20+years–this is essential. Ultimately, you want your home repairs or renovations to help the property retain its luster long after the job is done. Trust us; here at No Payne Roofing, we know that using higher-quality materials simply creates a better result. Poor quality material breaks away quicker and can lead to those safety concerns listed in the previous point. In contrast, high-quality roofing materials provide your home with the type of safety standards that should be expected.

Long Term Cost Saving

Again, think ahead a little. It might seem like you can save money by purchasing cheaper material, which is true in the short term, but it’s incredibly short-sighted. When it comes to long-term cost-saving measures, the need for quality roofing material will save you more. With less need to repair constantly, the higher quality roofing material will provide you less regular upkeep and repair costs, not to mention peace of mind when the job is done because you won’t have to worry about it after the initial renovation. Our experts at No Payne Roofing can help you get the work done and finished in no time.

Weather Proofing

Aside from caring about the safety of your build and the individuals involved, you also need adequate weather protection, and weatherproofing your home is essential. Damage from ice, water, or other natural causes is a problem that many homeowners face because their roofing materials, like shingles or gutters, are simply inadequate and low-quality. If this is the case for your home, you know how much of an issue it can be in terms of maintenance, and it’s a vicious cycle: one issue always leads to more problems. Weather sealing is a much-needed improvement for your home, and the best contractors will make this a priority to prevent any damage that can trickle (pun intended) from the roof down.


If you are concerned with getting your dollar to stretch a little further, then listen up: getting better home insurance rates will save you money. When an insurance company predicts that part of your home (the roof, in this case) is a potential problem spot, that can result in alarming rates (and you losing out on your hard-earned funds). Ensuring that this part of your home does not pose any issues can significantly impact your home insurance premiums and rates. The weatherproofing aspect of home roofing materials weighs into that equation quite a lot. Many insurance companies see the roof as an area of concern because of the damage caused by wind, snow, or water–so using quality material can help you out here.

There is a lot to think about when it comes to roofing renovations, but one thing is proven to be certain – and it’s that quality materials make all the difference. Investing in quality work and materials in the short term pays off in no time and for a long time.
