You’re thinking of installing a new roof or replacing your existing roofing in Denver, CO, but have tons of questions. That’s okay; it’s normal — and good — to have questions. Installing a new roof or replacing your existing one is not an easy decision. There are several factors to consider. You’ll want to know what you’re getting into, such as costs, time frames, materials, designs, etc.

Here at Integrity Building & Roofing, we’ll do our best to answer a few of our most frequently asked questions. Feel free to contact us for anything not covered below:

How often should I inspect my roof?

It’s our suggestion that you inspect your roof at least twice a year. This will give you a chance to look for loose, broken, cracked, or warped shingles, any roofing damage, leaks, loose seams and deteriorating flashing.

What are my re-roofing options in Denver?

You’ll have two basic options to choose from. Choose a complete replacement of the roof that includes tearing off your existing roof system or install a new roof system over the existing roof. If you choose the latter, it’s important to check with a professional roofing contractor. They’ll be familiar with building code requirements in your area. In many instances, you may only be allowed for one re-cover before a complete replacement is necessary.

How much does a new roof cost?

The answer isn’t cut-and-dried. There are several factors that’ll determine the cost of your new roof system, including: materials selected, contractor, home or building, location, labor rates and time of year. Other things to consider are the different grades and varieties of styles and shapes of your new roof.

We suggest getting three or four proposals and quotes from reputable contractors in your area before deciding. Pay special attention to their level of workmanship, whether or not they complete jobs on time, competitive pricing and if they’re insured and bonded. Keep in mind, we offer free estimates!

Do I need to hire a professional?

It’s best advised to leave most, if not all, of your roofing needs to a professional. Professional roofing contractors are trained to safely and efficiently repair or replace your roof, so you don’t have to take on the task yourself. In doing so, you may cause further damage or injure yourself or others trying to do the job yourself. General maintenance should be limited to clearing debris from the gutters and checking for loose or broken shingles.

Is it possible to determine my annual roofing cost?

Yes! You can use this simple formula:

Annual Roofing Cost = Total Cost (materials and labor) ÷ Life Expectancy of Roof System (in years).

Is there a warranty on my roof?

Yes, there is! At Integrity Building & Roofing, our goal is to bring you the very best workmanship at competitive prices. We stand behind what we do and are proud of our work. We offer a 5 year Workmanship Warranty in addition to the warranty that comes with the materials.
