New Residential Roof
New Roofing Shingles
When looking for new roofing shingles, there are a lot to choose from. Not only are there several roofing shingle manufacturers out there, but each company offers several different types of shingles with different names, styles, colors, and features. There are 3-Tab, Architectural/Dimensional, Designer, and Luxury shingles. Impact-resistant, algae-resistant, and wind-resistant shingles. And, there are loads of styles. GAF, alone, offers 10 different styles of shingles. Owens Corning offers 74 roofing shingles in the Colorado Front Range area. It can be overwhelming.
But don't worry, we're here to help.
After 30+ years in the business, we've installed every type and style of asphalt roofing shingle available from every manufacturer. That's why we only offer roofing shingles from the top 3 manufacturers, so you don't have to worry about which manufacturer to use. We also have great relationships with the shingle manufacturers, such as Owens Corning, so we get great prices the other small roofing companies can't compete with. What's more, we've installed shingles onto every type of roof. So, whether you have an open gable roof, a dormer, a hip and valley roof, or cross hipped roof, we're prepared to install your new roofing shingles onto your house, garage, or shed.
Lastly, we can also help you choose the shingle features that are best suited for your house and geographical area. For example, maybe you don't need an algae-resistant shingle. Or maybe shingles aren't appropriate for your exact application at all. Maybe a different roofing material would suit you better, such as metal or tile.
Regardless of which new roofing shingle is installed, you can rest easy knowing that we will install them correctly, professionally, and in a timely manner. Once we're done, your roof will be inspected by our own roof inspector who double-checks the work to make sure every shingle is secured, every nail on your roof is down, and every nail on your lawn is picked-up.
New Metal Roof
If you haven't considered a new metal roof before, you really should. They've come a long way since your basic galvanized, grey steel. Metal is among the best roofing material available. Environmentally-friendly and incredibly durable, a metal roof can lower your utility bills and last for decades. Today, metal roofing comes in a wide variety of colors, are more durable and resistant to storms than shingles, and can mimic other roofing materials, such as shingles, shake or tile.
Here in Colorado, they are particularly popular. A metal roof can give your home that classic Colorado Western look, can fit right in with your shingle neighbors, or give your house the old world look of tile.
There are more options today with a metal roof than there have in the past. Take colors, for example. One of our metal roofing suppliers, Flatiron Steel, offers their thickest gauge metal roof in 45 different colors. By comparison, Owens Corning's Duration shingle line, their most popular line of shingles, only come in 13 colors. You also have more appearance options today, in metal roofing, than before. Another supplier of ours, Boral Roofing, manufacturers metal roofing products that resemble asphalt shingles, wood shake, or clay tile.
The benefits of metal roofing are growing, as well. Today, metal roofing is the only roofing material that is actually recyclable in our Colorado Front Range area, other than concrete tiles. Although Owens Corning has an asphalt shingle recycling program, there are no shingle recycling centers in our area. However, Colorado Iron and Metal in Fort Collins accepts metal roofing for recycling.
Metal roofing is also impact and high wind resistant. A metal roof is almost fire proof, as metal doesn't burn. Although metal roofing costs more than asphalt shingles initially, it costs less over the life of your roof because a metal roof often lasts longer. If you live in a part of Colorado that gets a lot of snow, a metal roof is the only way to go because snow just slides right off (if your roof is steep enough).
If you're in the market for a new metal roof, look no further than Bob Behrends Roofing. Usually, each sheet of metal roofing is cut to a custom size on location for a perfect fit. We've installed all the various metal roofing options onto a variety of homes. See a sample of our residential roofing work. What's more, we guarantee our work.
New Tile Roof
If you're looking for the most unique, natural, and environmentally-friendly roof available today, you will find it in a tile roof. A tile roof can give your home or office that old world style that only tile can. Whether it's of a Roman Pantheon, English thatch, or Spanish barrel, with a new tile roof, your home will stand out. What's more, because the tiles are made from natural materials, they are environmentally-friendly and recyclable. Check your local area for a concrete or clay recycling center near you. If you're in Fort Collins, contact the City of Fort Collins Crushing Operations. Before taking your old clay or concrete roofing files to any recycling center, contact them to make sure they accept the roofing tiles you have, they can accept the quantity you have, hours of operation, etc.
Today's concrete and clay roofing tiles come in a variety of colors, shapes, and textures. Contrary to what you might think, concrete roofing tiles are not the boring grey like your driveway. Boral Roofing's concrete roofing tiles come in a wide array of colors and profiles. In addition, some of their concrete roofing tiles are Class-4 hail rated. This is the same Class-4 Impact Resistance as your high-end asphalt shingles.
Because a tile roof is considered a high-end roofing option, it can also raise the value of your home. Although the initial cost of a new tile roof is more expensive than, say, a new metal roof, a tile roof often costs less than a new metal roof over the life of the roof because it often lasts longer than a metal or shingle roof.
Because a tile roof weighs more than an asphalt shingle or metal roof, they are naturally wind-resistant. Another advantage to a tile roof is that the tiles are breathable. Because of this, they help lower your utility bill 🙂
