Choosing the Right Roofing Material for your Colorado Home [Podcast]

Key Takeaways:

  • Older Colorado homes that are seeing roof replacements are using 3-tab shingles, which are no longer up to most building codes due to low wind ratings.
  • The average Colorado roof lifespan is actually 15 to 20 years.
  • When you begin to see shingle granules in the gutter, it may be time to replace your roof, but you should still call a professional for an inspection before proceeding.
  • Roof repairs may not be the best option as they can waive existing manufacturers warranties. 
  • Neighborhoods tend to be on a similar replacement cycle either due to weather damage in the area or age of the home. If you see neighbors getting a new roof, it may be time to get a new roof yourself.
