Frequently Asked Questions
Severe weather, extreme temperatures and old age all contribute to the wear and tear of your roof. You can tell if your home needs a new roof or not by considering the age of the roof, it’s appearance, and whether or not there are leaks. Typical shingle roofs in Colorado last approximately 15-20 years on average. A leak could mean some shingles are damaged, the underlayment has failed, or flashing has deteriorated.
