​Are quality roofing materials worth the extra cost?

In many cases, upgrading to impact-rated shingles with a lifetime warranty cost only a few hundred extra dollars added to your claim. So, yes, when you’re spending $12,000 on an average roof, spending 2% more to extend the life of that roof for another 20 years is an amazing deal. Throw in the wind warranty and hail resistance, and it’s a no brainer.
