Our Versatile, Premium Materials For The Front Range

Shingle Roofing

Asphalt shingle roofing is–by far–the most popular residential roofing material in the Denver metro…not to mention the entire country.

Here at Roof Worx, we don’t install just ANY asphalt shingles.  Instead, we only offer product lines we know are designed to withstand the elements.

We’re proud to offer the following GAF product lines:

  • GAF Timberline HDZ Lifetime Shingles: Timberline is the most popular GAF shingle. It also comes with GAF’s Golden Pledge 25-year workmanship warranty.
  • GAF Lifetime Designer Shingles: GAF’s Lifetime Designer Shingles are for homeowners who want a little extra versatility, as they can be customized to fit ANY style.
  • GAF Armour Shield II or AS II – Impact Resistant Class 4 Shingles: These are the heavy-duty, high-impact shingles.  If you want maximum protection from hail, this may be the shingle for you.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is rapidly gaining popularity among Front Range area homeowners.  It’s durable, long-lasting, and often quite gorgeous on Colorado homes.

They even have Class A fire safety ratings, and they may be able to get you a reduction in your insurance premium.

Here are a few more reasons to choose metal roofing in Denver:

  • Metal roofing maintenance is almost completely non-existent. Hail can dent it, and debris can accumulate on it.  Other than that, there is not much that can harm a metal roof.
  • Metal roofs last a LONG time. Shingle roofs can sometimes make it to 50 years, at their absolute maximum.  Metal roofs can easily last 50+ with little to no deterioration.
  • Metal roofs reflect sunlight, keeping your attic cool on hot sunny days. In the Front Range, where it’s sunny 300 days a year, this can be a BIG benefit.

Tile Roofing

Tile roofing is a long-lasting and beautiful way to protect your home from the Denver metro’s harsh winters and hail storms.  They are Class 4 Impact Resistant, AND they have a Class 4 fire safety rating.

That said, there are some additional factors to consider if you choose a tile roof.

Tile roofs weigh considerably more than other types of roofing, so your home or commercial building needs to be inspected to ensure it can hold the weight.

As for materials, we generally recommend concrete tile roofing as opposed to rubber or clay.  It’s less costly than clay and every bit as durable and versatile.  When installed by-the-books, tile roofs can withstand EXTREMELY high winds, which gives them added appeal in the Front Range.

Shake Roofing

Cedar shake roofing used to be very popular–emphasis on used to be.  The reason for its decline is due to its poor fire safety rating.  The problem has led some jurisdictions in the Colorado Front Range to ban them altogether.

If you’re being forced to replace your roof, we’re here to help.  We have a variety of roofing options that can even mimic the look of cedar shake roofing, so you won’t have to alter your home’s aesthetic if you don’t want to.

Concrete tile roofing and even metal roofing can be great alternatives.

Roof Coatings

Roof coatings are applied in liquid form to flat roofs in order to protect them against water damage and the elements at large.  They can drastically lengthen the lifespan of your commercial roof.

We offer the following different types of roof coatings:

  • Silicon Roof Coating: Silicon coatings are great because they can withstand pooling water, they adhere to most substrates without a primer, and they can usually be applied in just one coat.
  • Acrylic Roof Coating: Acrylic roof coatings stay cleaner than silicon, but they do require multiple coats in order to be effective.
  • Asphalt Emulsions Roof Coating: Asphalt emulsions are water-based asphalt coatings. They are one of the only types of coating that can be applied to gravel-ballasted built-up roofs.

Stone Coated

Decra Stone-Coated Steel Roofing Shingles are one of our favorite roofing products because they can mirror the look of cedar shake or clay tile roofing.  You can get the exact same look of a beautiful cedar shake roof without the added maintenance burden and fire safety issues.

Though technically a metal roof, they are coated with stone granules to give the appearance of solid stone.  If that’s not enough, they’re also priced competitively with high-end asphalt shingles, even though they are far more durable.

Slate Roofing

TruSlate Roofing by GAF is our preferred slate roofing option for the Denver home and business owners we serve.

Why is that?

Because TruSlate is real slate roofing at a fraction of the typical cost.  Rather than traditional block slate, TruSlate is made of a manufactured slate material that is lighter and more efficient.

Because it weighs less than other stone roofing materials, you can install TruSlate on nearly any home without the need for structural modifications.

Long story short, TruSlate gives you the beauty and durability of a genuine slate roof at the price of a typical shingle roof.

Flat/Low Roofing

Flat roofing is just different from standard residential roofing.  There’s no way around it.  That’s why you need a contractor with the experience, materials, and dedicated team of people to handle your flat roof with care.

You need to know that your commercial building is water-proofed and protected from the elements to protect your investment.  Roof Worx is here to help!

We repair and install the following types of flat roofing:

  • Modified Low-Slope Roofing/Rolled Roofing
  • EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer)
  • TPO Single Ply Membrane Roofing
  • PVC Single Ply Membrane Roofing
  • Elastomeric Roofing Systems

Composite Shingles

Composite shingle roofing refers to a broad range of roofing materials designed to mimic the look of other roofing materials that are more expensive, impractical, or even pose a fire hazard.

Composite roofing shingles can be manufactured to replicate the unique aesthetic of cedar shake, slate tiles, clay tiles, and more.

As for cedar shake shingles, composite is now all we can offer.  Many jurisdictions no longer allow real cedar shake because of the fire hazard it can pose.  If you are looking for an EXACT replica that’s legal and less costly, composite cedar shake is the obvious choice.
