Loveland New Roof Options

Our Loveland friends have many roof options available to them that are both Class-C fire rated and high wind rated.

Asphalt Shingles

  • Owens Corning
  • GAF
  • CertainTeed
  • Tamko

Owens Corning

If you’re an Owens Corning fan, you’re in luck. All of their asphalt shingles are 130 MPH wind rated or higher, if installed correctly, except their 3-tab Supreme shingles. Their Supreme shingles have been tested to withstand, and are warrantied against, winds up to 60 MPH only. Owens Corning makes great asphalt shingles. We regularly install their Duration line of asphalt shingles for folks in Loveland because they’re both high-wind rated and impact resistant.

And, their website is very easy to use. If you’re most concern with price, you can quickly sort their shingles by price. If you’re more interested in features, such as their WeatherGuard Tech, which is impact resistant, with one click you can quickly see only shingles that are impact resistant. The same goes for wind resistance, shingle color, or shingle line.

All of GAF’s asphalt shingles, except their Royal Sovereign 3-tab shingles, are 130 MPH wind rated or better. In order to achieve the 130 MPH or better wind rating, they must be installed correctly. However, their 3-tab Royal Sovereign shingles have been tested to only withstand winds up to 60 MPH.

GAF also makes a great roofing shingles. Their popular Timberline HDZ shingles are relatively affordable and are Class A fire rated. They are not high impact rated, however. If you’re looking for a GAF asphalt shingle that’s also hail resistant, consider their Timberline AS II shingles. These are not only Class A fire rated, and 130mph wind rated, but also hail resistant. Although they cost a little more than the Timberline HDZ shingles, they will last longer since they’re more durable.


Certainteed NorthGate ClimateFlex

If you prefer CertainTeed brand of asphalt shingles, all of their asphalt shingles, except their 3-tab XT-25 shingles, are also 130 MPH wind rated or higher. Their XT-25 3-tab shingles have only been tested to withstand, and are only warrantied against, winds up to 60 MPH. This is rather common among 3-tab shingles.

Another great asphalt shingle manufacturer is CertainTeed. Their Landmark series are very popular, and for good reason. They are Class A fire rated and, although only 110mph wind rated out-of-the-box, are eligible for a wind warranty upgrade up to 130 mph.

CertainTeed’s website also makes it easy for you to find what you’re looking for, thanks to the series of sorting options. Only want to see shingles that are impact and hail resistant? Just tick that box and you’ll be presented with only those shingles that are built to withstand hail.

Tamko makes it easy – all of their asphalt shingles, including their 3-tab shingles, are Class-A fire rated, and 130 MPH wind rated or better. With Tamko, it’s a matter of choosing other features, such as whether they’re impact resistant or not. Due to the number of hail days Loveland gets, we recommend their StormFighter IR shingles. These are 160mph wind rated, Class A fire rated, Class 4 impact rated, and have 4 attractive colors to choose from.

Stone-Coated Metal Shingles

If you’re looking for a roofing shingle that lasts longer than traditional asphalt shingles, consider stone-coated metal shingles. The difference between asphalt and metal shingles is the foundation. Traditional asphalt shingles use fiberglass as their foundation. Metal shingles use, as you would imagine, metal. Metal is much more durable than fiberglass. As a result, it lasts a lot longer. Your average dimensional asphalt shingle lasts about 25 years, here in Colorado. Metal, on the other hand, often lasts 70 years or more.

Stone-coated metal shingles are roughly the same size as asphalt shingles – about 1′ x 3′. They also come in a small range of popular colors to coordinate with your house. However, metal shingles come in profiles that more closely resemble their original counterparts. For example, Westlake Royal Roofing’s Pine-Crest Shake looks more like real wood shake than any asphalt shingle product. If you prefer that traditional asphalt shingle look, consider Westlake’s Granite-Ridge Shingles, or their Cottage Shingles. If you’d rather have a barrel or tile look, they have those, too. All have that durable metal foundation.

Standing Seam

If you haven’t looked at standing seam, you should. Standing seam metal roofing panels just might be the most durable roofing product. Like stone-coated metal shingles, they last around 70 years or more, on average. They are also recyclable, just like metal shingles, unlike asphalt shingles. We have identified metal recycling centers in our area. When we tear-off old metal roofing, we do our best to deliver it to a local recycling facility. Standing seam roofing is more fire-resistant than asphalt shingles. Although both standing seam and asphalt shingles are Class-A fire-rated, because metal uses no asphalt, it’s more fire-resistant.

Metal roofing panels, be it standing seam or corrugated, are the coolest roofing material for Colorado. This is because they reflect more solar radiation then other roofing materials, and they release a great deal of absorbed heat. As a result, they help to lower your Summer cooling bill.

Metal shingles and panels are more resistant to high winds than asphalt shingles. This is because they use screws to secure them to the roof deck, instead of nails. Screws have superior holding power over nails. Metal roofing does cost more, initially, than asphalt shingles. However, because it lasts so much longer than asphalt shingles, it often ends-up costing less in the long-run.

Roofing Tiles

Clay or concrete tiles are a great way to stand-out and express your creativity. Not only are tiles fire and high-wind resistant, they’re also cool, cooler than asphalt shingles, in fact. What’s more, some concrete tiles are Class-4 hail rated. If your house hasn’t had clay or concrete tiles, it may require additional structural support since tiles are often heavier than other roofing materials. We offer clay and concrete tiles from Westlake Royal Roofing. If you’re interested in a new tile roof in Loveland, contact us for a free consultation and estimate.

Clay Roofing Tiles

Clay roofing tiles are a great natural product, possibly even more eco-friendly than real wood shake since they don’t require the harvesting of trees and are more fire-resistant. They come in various shades of natural colors, such as browns, oranges, tans, and reds. Clay roofing tiles are cooler than concrete tiles since they reflect more solar radiation. Clay tiles are considered relatively durable. However, if you live in a part of Loveland that generally gets large hail stones, they might not be for you. If you don’t generally get large hail, you could expect your new clay tile roof to last 50 years or more, with proper installation and regular maintenance.

Concrete Tiles

Concrete roofing tiles are unique in that they have many profiles to choose from. Profiles such as those that resemble spanish barrels, flat slate, thatch, and wood shake. Although concrete tiles aren’t as cool as clay tiles, they are still cooler than traditional asphalt shingles. And, concrete tiles are more hail resistant than clay tiles. As with clay roofing tiles, if your roof hasn’t had tiles before, your roof may require additional structural support to carry the additional weight.
