Spring is in the air and that means … making sure your roof made it through the winter without damage.
The winter and harsh weather of Colorado can really wear down your roof, whether it’s a typical asphalt shingles roof, metal roof, or any other type of roof. Snow can cause damage like ice dams and wind can ruin shingles and cause debris. The combination of sun and cold, dry weather can also wreak havoc on your roof.
So, when springtime comes around, it’s the perfect time to get a roof repaired, replaced, or at least, if nothing else, inspected. Better weather means better conditions to work on your roof, so spring roofing is primetime roofing.
Spring Roof Repair and Replacement
Spring is a season of turning over a new leaf – a time of renewal, rebirth, and renaissance. It’s also a popular time for renovations, repairs, reorganizing, and much more spring cleaning activities. Spring roofing means repairing and replacing roofs that took damage from winter, age, or a little of everything.
Spring is a great time to get quality work done on your roof, no matter the amount of work your roof requires. It’s also a time where you find a lot of roofers that just aren’t qualified. We urge you to find reputable Colorado roofing contractors to make sure the job gets done right.
Roofs we specialize in:
We even repair and replace flat roofs on residential properties within the Front Range area.
Colorado has a reputation for frequent thunderstorms and bad weather. Spring roofing also means repairs from hail and storm damage.
Every year dozens of powerful storms roll through Denver and the Front Range and cause damage to residential as well as commercial properties.
Repair and replace your roof if needed to prevent any future damage.
Spring Hail & Storm Damage
Hail is no stranger to Colorado and B&M Roofing contractors are helping residents recover from the hail damage to their roof. Hail storms and high winds can cause damage to roofs that need to be repaired quickly in order to avoid further damage to your property.
When a hail storm rolls through town, it’s followed by a flurry of fly-by-night roofing contractors looking to take advantage of victims of storm damage in their time of need. These contractors don’t have established roots in Denver, or anywhere in Colorado for that matter, and will leave homeowners and property owners stuck with a low-standard roofing job and little-to-no warranty.
When you need roof repair due to storm damage, make sure you get a quality Colorado roofing company that understands your community. B&M Roofing is highly qualified to help you get your roof repair or roof replacement is taken care of promptly and professionally.
We Work with Your Insurance
We have a great reputation not only with property owners but with insurance representatives too.
We understand the insurance claims process.
We make sure you get everything your insurance entitles you to, after a damaging storm.
When storms hit the Denver area, insurance companies are busy writing checks to property owners to make sure the damage is taken care of and further damage is avoided. The good news is most property insurance policies cover roof damage due to storms and inclement weather.
The sooner you can find issues with your roof that need fixing, the quicker and less expensive they will be. It usually starts with an inspection. You can save time and money by assessing your roof for damage and call a professional roofer after inspection.
While we don’t promote homeowners and business owners getting up on their roof, there are safe ways to do so, to inspect your property’s roof.
If you are comfortable enough with doing a quick roof inspection, you can use B&M Roofing of Colorado’s spring roof inspection checklist to walk you through your warm-weather inspection.
Spring Roofing Inspection Checklist
Before you climb on the roof, however, ensure you do it safely. Place your ladder on a firm, level surface, at the angle specified by the manufacturer. Secure it to your roof, but not in a way that presents a tripping hazard. For more tips on ladder safety, visit our Ladder Safety blog.
- Gutters: Clear the rain gutters of any material that may have collected in them over the winter. Clear all debris by hand before flushing them to prevent clogs in downspouts.
- Downspouts: Use a hose to flush downspouts and loosen any material that may have become lodged in them throughout the winter. With the hose in the downspout, inspect each one to ensure it’s free of leakage that can cause water to collect around your foundation.
- Roofing Materials: Inspect your shingles or tiles for visible damage, such as cracks, tears, or missing chunks. Pay special attention to pipes and other protrusions from the roof where snow and ice may have accumulated and damaged the seal.
- Vents: Vents in your rooftop, under your eaves, or in the rafters are essential to keeping air flowing through your home. Make sure they’re unimpeded and allow air to circulate.
- Chimney: While you’re on the roof, take the opportunity to check that your chimney is still in good health. Check that masonry is intact and that white stains, similar to calcium buildup, aren’t building up, which can indicate your chimney is absorbing water.
