Residential homeowners have a lot to worry about. For homes in the Denver area, the roof is the first line of defense from natural hazards such as wind, rain, hail, ice, snow, and extreme heat. It is the most vulnerable part of your residence. Every day, your roof is exposed to weather and other elements that may contribute to decay and deterioration, increasing the risk of damage to the roof itself and the contents below it.
Schedule inspections every six months (fall and spring) with a trustworthy residential roofing company because it’s the best way to avoid roof-related problems and strengthen weather resistance. Proper maintenance can extend the life of a roof and in many instances will allow for “repair” instead of “replacement” when a problem is identified. The frequency of inspections for routine maintenance depends on several factors, including the age of the roof, recent weather events, and conditions identified during previous inspections, but every six months is a good starting point.
A top-notch residential roofing company can improve the value of your home with quality services including; residential roofing, roofing repairs, storm damage recovery, insulation, siding, window replacement, exterior house painting, gutter repairs and installation. Denver Roofers would be happy to provide you with free estimates and inspections.
Common Roofing Problems

1) Standing Water
Prolonged standing water or ponding on the roof can lead to premature aging and deterioration, which will lead to leaks.
Bubbles in your roof may indicate trapped moisture within the roof cover, which can lead to leaks and reduce the life span of the cover. This can cause premature aging of the deck and reduce your roof’s effectiveness against uplift forces associated with a windstorm.
3) Gaps or Tears
Gaps in the flashing or roof cover perimeter greatly increase the potential for roof cover failure during extreme weather like high winds, rain, and snow. Tears in the roof cover or worn or cracking seams can allow water to enter below the cover.
