   ROOFING 101 AND THE DAMAGING EFFECTS FROM MOTHER NATURE

      

Educating each customer on the the construction of their roof is simply best practice and our rule-of-thumb.  We walk you through the build process, step-by-step so you can rest assured that when the project is complete, you will be confident of your new roofing system for many years to come.   

While natural disasters usually prompt our immediate attention, mother-nature will also have long term effects on the performance of roofing materials, allowing her to slowly work her way into your roof and attic.  If your existing roof has been on for ten or more years, we strongly suggest that you contact us at 303-883-3865 for a free inspection.

 

Effects on the Roof's Performance

Sun: Heat and ultraviolet rays cause roofing materials to blister and deteriorate over time. Deterioration can occur faster on the sides facing west and south.

 

 

Rain: When water gets underneath shingles, shakes or other roofing materials, it can work its way to the roof deck and cause the roof structure to rot. Extra moisture encourages mildew and rot elsewhere in a house, including walls, ceilings, insulation and electrical systems.

 


Wind: High winds can lift shingles' edges (or other roofing materials) and force water and debris underneath them. Extremely high winds can cause extensive damage.
