SKYYGUARD: Experts In Every Type Of Roofing
These are a few of the most currently-popular roof types in Denver and the surrounding area.
Modified Bitumen Roofing
Commonly self-adhering non-woven fabric that is embedded with granules, modified bitumen roofing is installed in overlapping rolls, and can be made from a variety of materials… today’s systems are typically modified during manufacturing for greater strength and durability.
Metal roofing is quite common throughout the Rocky Mountain region, where snow accumulation on rooftops can spell disaster. Snow stops are often installed on metal roofs to keep these disasters from occurring… but watch out: Insurance companies are increasingly declaring “cosmetic” the repair or replacement of metal roofs which have only been dented (as by hail), and not penetrated… and denying claims for any repair or replacement work as a result.
Rubber roofing, most commonly comprised of ethylene propylene diene terpolymer (EPDM), has been a very popular choice for commercial development, particularly for flat-topped industrial or business buildings. SKYYGUARD’s roofing pros are experts in working with the challenges of EPDM roofing, including the shrinkage and seam dry-out which tends to occur over time in Colorado’s harsh UV sun.
Today’s shingle products go far beyond the traditional asphalt shingles. Even asphalt shingles come in different varieties, including laminated shingles (also called “architectural” or “dimensional” shingles), layered to provide thickness and depth that lets them resemble slate or wood shake-shingles… but at a lower price (and lower risk of fire damage).
The attractive look of natural slate roofing is also very popular in Colorado. Slate’s heavy, though, and your home or building will need a thorough structural inspection to make sure it can handle the load. Today’s roofing market also offers concrete tiles, which are a bit lighter and less expensive to install… and are often manufactured to give a similar attractive appearance to that of slate.
TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) roofing is a type of fused “membrane” of polyprophylene and ethylene-propylene rubber, sometimes seamless, and typically adhered or mechanically attached to the roof in a way that makes it resemble a solid “coating.” TPO roofing can be an excellent choice for commercial buildings, and for some residential applications (most commonly out-buildings).
