Is it Time to Replace Your Roof?

If you have noticed your roof is looking a little worn or ceiling leaks, you should consider having your roof replaced. Not only will it make you feel more at peace and comfortable in the home, but also reduce any chance of leaks occurring to affect anything else inside.

The roof of your home is essential to maintaining its integrity and safety. There are a number of signs that can lead you to believe your roof needs attention.  Here are just a few:  

  • The roof has been leaking for some time and you’ve had no luck with repairs.
  •  Your shingles are curling up and not lying flat.
  • You see water stains on the ceiling inside your home or you have constant dripping coming through your ceiling.
  • You are experiencing external noise when it rains or the air conditioner is running.
  • You’ve noticed mold or mildew on the surface of your shingles.

When you notice any of these signs, it is best to contact a professional roofing company like Bulldog Roofing.  We are the experts in residential and commercial roofing replacement and installation and can handle your job right away.

Types of Roofing

There are many types of roofing materials, but some are best suited for our extreme Colorado weather conditions. The most common type of roofing is asphalt shingle. Clay and concrete tiles are also popular and offer a beautiful look to your home.  Metal roofing is known for its durability.  Wood shingles and shakes have an earthy feel to them but can be more costly than other types of material because they require upkeep and maintenance. Synthetic roofs are still relatively new in the market and can be very effective for commercial buildings.

Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt shingles are a weatherproof roofing material that is known to last for decades. They are affordable and easy to install and come in a variety of colors and styles. The three main types of asphalt shingles include: 3-tab shingles, dimensional shingles and premium shingles. Each type of shingle offers their own features and levels of affordability. The pros at Bulldog Roofing can go over each type of shingle and make sure you pick the one that meets your needs and budget.

Clay and Concrete Tiles

Clay and concrete tiles are another type of roofing that is known to last for years. Clay and concrete tiles require a strong support structure, but they're much more durable than most other types of roofing materials. Tile roofing comes in many different colors and styles. This type of roofing is considered a premium choice, but it adds value and beauty to your home for decades.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is a great option if you're looking for a long-lasting material that will keep your house cool in the summer and warm during winter. Metal roofs are lightweight but durable, when installed correctly, with enough support to withstand high winds. Metal roofs are beautiful and can complement your home or building paint color. They come in a wide variety of styles and designs.

Wood Shingles and Shakes

Wood shingles and shake roofing are both made from wood; the difference is in how they're manufactured. Shingles are made from strips of wood which are installed in layers, whereas a shake roof consists of individual pieces that overlap each other. Wood roofing materials offer a significant amount of protection against hail, heavy rain or snow, UV sunlight and wind. In general, shakes are more costly than shingles because they are thicker and require more labor to install.

Synthetic Roofing Products

Synthetic roofing products are just as appealing as traditional roofing materials, such as metal and asphalt shingle. They are made from mostly water-resistant products that can be cleaned and maintained with minimal effort. Synthetic roofing products can be installed quickly, and their lightweight materials make them easy to work with for installation teams of any size.

Which Type of Roofing is Best in Colorado?

Metal roofing is one of the best types of roofing used in Colorado. Metal roofing comes with a lifetime warranty covering manufacturers defects and will last for decades before needing any repairs. Clay and concrete tiles are also good Colorado roofing material, but are more costly to purchase and install. Shingles are a good option for roofs expected to last 10-30 years.

Benefits of a New Roof

A new roof can help to improve the value of your home. It can keep you and your family safe from the risk of leaks or water damage; a major risk for Colorado homes. It can protect you from the elements and keep your house warmer or cooler depending on the season and what type of roofing system is installed.

A new roof provides energy saving protection from the sun and heat. You will notice a significant reduction in energy consumption by installing a new roof.

A new roof can also contribute to better air quality in your living space by keeping the humidity levels down during periods of high heat.
