If it isn't broken don't fix it. Getting stronger either in the low rep range or higher is still a strength gain.

If you do want to handle heavier weights I'd say the 3-5 rep range is heavy enough (not going to failure) and then follow with some back off sets of 8-12 for volume. Most people aren't ready to do heavy singles and it be more beneficial than higher reps.
