Roof Maintenance

As the seasons change in Northern Colorado, one thing is for certain: your roof is going to be submitted to the challenge of hail storms. Do you know when the last inspection was performed on your roof? As Autumn sets in and Winter is just around the corner, it is time to start considering the condition of your roof before it is covered in snow. Roof damage can be obvious from a glance or it can go unnoticed until it is too late and there is a leak… or worse. Select Roofing Contractors provides free roof inspections on residential and commercial buildings to help clients make well-informed decisions about the state of their structure and what needs to be done. Roof maintenance is a critical part of keeping your roof watertight and making sure that the roof lasts as long as possible. Identifying and correcting issues now will save you a lot of time, frustration and resources in the future!


Class 4 Shingles

In any given project there are multiple parties that must be dealt with. Factors such as city codes and insurance requirements can make the project seem daunting. For example, as of January 2019 the City of Fort Collins requires that asphalt shingles are to be Class 4 impact resistant on new roofs and re-roofing projects. While this isn’t a huge hurdle to cross, it is important to make sure that the contractor is complying with all regulations so the project is up to code and there are no hold-ups. These new Shingles are stronger than ever and will actually save homeowners money in the long-term due to their high durability rating and resistance to hail. Many insurance companies offer a discount on premiums for a Class 4 roof, so there can be more than one benefit from the upgrade. Select Roofing Contractors works directly with their client’s insurance provider so that the client is not obligated to be the middle-person in relaying information between parties. We strive to educate clients and keep communication clear throughout the inspection and planning phases so there are no grey areas or confusion as the project moves along!
