T-Lock Roofs: Warning

Attention homeowners. Do you have a T-Lock roof? Unfortunately, this type of roof is no longer being made and therefore cannot be legally repaired.

If you have a T-Lock roof, you may want to consider replacing your roof before the end of the year. Or at the very least check with your insurance company about their remaining coverage for this type of roof.

Give us a call today; we’re happy to help if you have any questions about T-Lock or any other kind of roofing.

 
Make your roof last longer with these simple tips from A & H Roofing

At A & H Roofing we repair and replace roofs in the Denver Metro area – A LOT of roofs. Depending on several factors, including its exposure to natural elements such as sun, rain, humidity, wind, snow and ice, an average roof will last anywhere from 10 -20 years.

As you may have guessed, here in Colorado we experience a surplus of many of those factors. So prudent homeowners must always be on guard against those elements that will continue to wear down their roofs. The good news is there are things you can do to extend the life of your roof.

Consider some of the following to help you keep your home safe and looking beautiful:

Making sure your roof’s caulking is sound:

A nail or bolt can rust which allows the rain water a way into the attic. A small leak can cause a great deal of water to enter the home over time. The solution is to recaulk the fasteners with a tube of roofing caulk. You can do it yourself or have A & H Roofing check the caulking during your annual roof check up. It is not expensive and doing so could help extend the life or your roof many years.

Pruning trees and bushes away from the roof:

The brushing of branches against the roof covering helps to break it down. Once the covering is breaking, water has the opportunity to penetrate the roof. The worst case scenario that we have seen is when a large limb took off the roof covering and sheathing down to the framing.

Removing leaf debris left on the roof: 

Leaves help keep moisture on the roof surface, and that moisture can make its way down to the sheathing. Soak any item with water long enough, and it will weaken. A few leaves may blow off of the roof, but larger piles when moist will stay in place. Every so often you just need to go up there to sweep these leaves. The other problem with these piles of leaves on a roof is that they may create homes for pests. We found a colony of ants living in one pile. They were beginning to use parts of the composite shingle to build a home for themselves (thereby deteriorating the shingle).

Maintaining a venting system for the attic:

In most homes, you have vents in the soffits which bring air into the attic that moves along the sheathing to a vent in the ridge. This helps move moisture out of this space. It also helps the temperature in this area. A fully sealed attic with no vents can be like an oven, which helps the elements in the attic breakdown faster.

All these precautions are simple and cost effective. A good idea is to have A & H Roofing come out once a year to inspect and do preventative maintenance. So give us a call; we are Denver’s best roofers and would love to keep your roof sturdy and looking good for years to come.

 
Advancements in Asphalt Roofing

At A & H Roofing we believe in watching roofing trends emerge and keeping our own skills sharpened when it comes to roofing. After all, progress means better protection in our field. Believe it or not, roofing technology is making leaps and bounds with the advancement of space age materials and polymers. Also, as super computers get even more super we are seeing a constant rethinking of how a roof should be constructed versus how it always has been, and architects are able to use CAD based models to literally let their imaginations run wild with formerly impossible ideas.

 
Hail Repair

We often get asked if a roof can be completely hail-proof. Unfortunately the answer is no. That doesn’t mean you need to replace your roof every time it hails or that there aren’t minor, often inexpensive fixes you can do to the hail damage once it occurs.

In Colorado, hail is a very real problem to roofs so investing in a hail-RESISTANT roof is a definite consideration. These products have Class 1 through Class 4 hail-resistance ratings, 4 being the highest. The ratings are given by taking a steel ball and dropping it from a pre-determined height and measuring the damage the roof has sustained.

 

A & H Roofing understands that nobody knows your home better than you do – from the basement stair that creaks to the scratch in the dining room hardwood floors. Although owning a house can be frustrating at times and seem to warrant one repair after another, the benefits to those who take care of and improve upon their home can last a lifetime.

Owning a home is a lot like a retirement fund with exponential returns on investment when managed correctly. So just like when managing a financial portfolio, your roof is something to keep an eye on. When should you replace a roof, or at least start considering it?

Considering first imminent damage there are many factors that contribute to it:

  • Condensation: A poorly ventilated attic can be a prime contributor to condensation caused by a large temperature difference between attic air and outside air.
  • Wind: Large gusts or periods of sustained high winds can lift the edges of roof shingles and cause water or other unwanted elements to seep in underneath. From there, it can work its way to the deck of the roof and cause rotting.
  • Sun: Sustained exposure can cause gradual deterioration of roofing materials. A roof with a southern exposure is especially vulnerable.
  • Rain: When shingles are missing or damaged, water can get in and cause damage to ceilings, walls, insulation, and electrical systems.
  • Snow and ice: Ice dams often form when melting snow re-freezes at a roof’s overhang. When this happens, drainage into the gutter becomes blocked, causing water to sometimes back up under the shingles and seep into the interior of the house.
  • Trees and leaves: Tree branches blown by the wind can often become lodged under shingles or puncture them. Leaves on a roof surface can retain moisture and sometimes cause rotting or block gutter drainage.

Besides obvious and copious leaks, what other signs could your house be giving you that it’s time to call A & H Roofing?

  • Moisture: Look at your interior walls. Are there moisture marks or brown stains? Is the paint peeling? These can all be signs of roof leakage. If the leak is relatively small, then a short-term repair may be all you need for now. But if there is extensive moisture damage to the roofing layer, you should consider a full roof replacement.
  • Missing or damaged shingles: There are many factors that could cause shingles to be curled, split, torn, or completely missing. If the damage is localized, then a simple repair may suffice. But if more than 30 percent of the entire roof is damaged, then a new roof may be a better answer.
  • Recent catastrophe: Did the damage occur as a result of something like a recent tornado or hurricane? If so, then you should definitely consider replacing the entire roof. Very often, there’s a level of damage beyond what you are easily able to see. Bigger problems can be lurking around the corner and it’s much better to be safe than sorry.
  • Age: How old is your roof? Is it past its expected lifespan? Do you even know what its expected lifespan is? It can vary greatly depending on what type of roofing material you have. To give you an idea, here are the expected shelf lives of some common types of roofing materials:
    • Asphalt shingles: These are the most commonly used roofing materials and they can typically be counted on to last between 15 and 20 years. Some of the newer variants are higher in quality and can be good for up to 40 years.
    • Wood shingles: Typically made from cedar, southern pine, or redwood, this type of shingle can last at least 15 years and, depending on the quality and type of wood, for several decades.
    • Slate shingles: Although expensive, slate is considerably durable and highly resistant to the elements. Slate roofs can often be expected to last for up to 100 years.
    • Clay or concrete tile: Another extremely durable, although heavy, roofing material is clay or concrete tile. Commonly found in the Southwest, clay roofs are nearly immune to damage and have a shelf life of 200 years or more.
    • Metal and aluminum: A common fixture in commercial buildings but now becoming increasingly popular in residential applications as well, metal roofs are extremely sturdy and fare extraordinarily well in the face of storms, hurricanes, wind, rain, and, fire. They are capable of lasting for centuries.

Just like you trust a financial expert to manage your funds, you should get in touch with a trusted roofer to inspect your roof once a year. A & H Roofing is a member in good standing of the BBB and the community and would like nothing better than to be your “go to” roofer.
