Colorado is a huge state with varied climate that requires local homeowners to pay special attention to the materials used on their roofs. Here are some of the most common roofing materials used by Denver roofing companies in the Centennial State:
- Specialized asphalt shingles – conventional, 3-tab shingles might not be adequate for the Colorado regions that get harsh weather, but asphalt shingles are also available in high-end, special varieties that are very durable and still very affordable. One example is impact-resistant shingles that are thicker and stronger that conventional varieties and are able to withstand hail, harsh winds, snow, heavy rain and strong sunshine as well;
- Metal – metal roofing systems come in the form of panels, tiles and shingles and they are available in varieties made from steel, copper, tin, zinc, aluminum and other alloys. Metal is one of the most durable building materials used today, with the roofing systems made from metal also being among the strongest systems available. Metal roofs can withstand harsh weather and with proper maintenance, they can last for over 50 years;
- Clay and cement tiles – these two strong and durable options work great in any climate zone. They are both quite heavy, so before choosing your clay or cement tiles, make sure that your building can be fitted with a heavy roof.
