If you live in an area that sees a lot of wind and winter precipitation, keeping your roof in good shape should be a high priority! Homeowners and business managers rely on the longevity of their roofing structure, so it’s a great idea to have a trusted professional who can perform routine roofing inspections to ensure that no problems arise from the wear of the seasons.
In areas like the Northern Front Range, weather change can be frequent and quick. One day can see heavy snowfall, but the next may be warm and sunny! Neglecting roof inspections in this scenario can wreak havoc on a roof. If cracks have formed in the structure or shingles have been damaged or blown away, the rain may seep into the cracks. From there, the situation only goes from bad to worse—it could cause mold or rot in the attic, or it could freeze and further damage the structure.
One great option for increasing a roof’s lifespan is having Class IV shingles applied to the structure. Class IV shingles are the most durable shingle available and offer high impact resistance, making them ideal in areas that see frequent hail and high wind. In many cities like Fort Collins, new roofs using asphalt shingles require a Class IV rating. Check with a qualified professional to learn if your roof has or could upgrade to Class IV shingles!
