The climate in Colorado might bring lots of joy for those who love summer as well as for those who love the spectacular winters at the feet of the Rocky Mountains, but the special climate of the Mile High City is certainly harsh on local roofs.
The climate being one of the most important aspects to take into consideration when choosing roofing materials, here are some of the best options for the area:
- Clay and cement tiles – tile roofs are very well suited for Colorado. Both clay and cement tiles are manufactured with technologies that seal the surface of the tiles, making the material impervious to moisture. The two options are also excellent for any geographical area that gets wide temperature variations, like it is the case of Fort Collins and Denver, cities that heat up in the summer then freeze in winter;
- Metal – the term metal roof is today more like an umbrella term that comprises a variety of metal alloys as well as a variety of material types, including shingles, tiles, shakes and large sheets. According to a well known Fort Collins roofing company, metal is an extremely durable and resistant option, a material that is easy to install, easy to maintain and extremely durable;
- Impact resistant shingles – these shingle varieties look very similar to conventional, 3-tab varieties, but they feature a much more resistant, much sturdier structure that enables them to with stand even large hail, strong storms and heavy rain and snow without sustaining any considerable damage.
