Roof Sheathing: What immediately covers the structural support. This is most commonly plywood or OSB (Oriented Strand Board).

Underlayment: A moisture barrier immediately on top of the roof sheathing. Sometimes called roof felt.

Flashing: Where the roof surface meets vertical surfaces (like a chimney) or at valleys created where adjoining roof sections of different angles meet, a metallic flashing is installed.

Roofing Material: The topmost layer of the roof which you can see, such as shingles, tile, etc.

 

ROOFING MATERIALS

Rolled Roofing / Built Up Roofing: Used for flat roofs or very low slope roofs.

Water Shields for Roofing
A roofing water shield looks very similar to the traditional felt paper used to line roofs but is higher performance.  Felt paper stops most leaks where water gets under the tiles or shingles but sometimes still lets leaks form by letting water through where one sheet of felt paper overlaps another or where nails have created holes in the felt paper.

The  water shield roofing material is made of a rubberized asphalt with a sticky backing that seals overlaps unlike felt paper, and forms a seal around nails when it is penetrated.  Roofers in Adams County CO can cover your entire roof with the water shield, or apply it only where leaks frequently happen.  The roofing contractors can also bend the water shield to create a leak-proof barrier around anything that penetrates a roof, such as vents, chimneys, and skylights, then use standard roof flashings to cover the ice and water shield sub-flashing.

Questions To Ask Roofing Companies in Adams County CO

When choosing which roofer to hire, ask the right questions about their experience, range of services, credentials, and methods and materials.

• How long have they been in business as roofers in Adams County? This indicates how well they know the local city ordinances, codes, and permit requirements for your area.

• How many roofs have they done specifically in Adams County? This indicates how well they know the performance of different materials and installation methods in your particular climate, rainfall and wind patterns.

• How many roofs have they done of the same type as yours, i.e. same materials: clay tile versus asphalt shingle, same type: flat versus high slope, and same scope: repair only versus tear-off and reroof versus new roofing, etc.

• Can the roofing company give you client names and numbers you can call as references? (All roofing contractors bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had their client references called by our research staff so you don't have to.)

• What is the projected time frame for completion of the new roof installation or roof repair?

• Does the roofing contractor have active workers' compensation and general liability insurance for your protection? (All roofers in Adams County bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had their proof of insurance verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)

• How will the roofing companies calculate pricing for new roofs or roof repairs?

• Will they provide a written estimate that specifices the exact amount of material to be used, including sizes, brand names, product numbers etc? (This is key because the cheapest roofing companies often only seem cheaper because they are quoting inferior materials or low quality brands compared to other roofers.)

• Will the roofing contractors provide a written contract?

• Will permits be needed? If so, will they be responsible for getting them or will that be up to you?

• Can the roofing contractor prove that all their workers sent to your property are legally allowed to work in the U.S.? (All roofing companies in Adams County CO bearing The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already signed an agreement to only hire documented workers.)    

• How often and when do they clean up?

• What is the manufacturer's warranty on the roofing system or material the contractor is suggesting?

• What kind of warranties and guarantees on their labor do they offer besides the manufacturer warranty on the roofing materials, and can you see a copy?

• Do they offer multiple types of roofing materials and brands, or are they restricted to quoting one manufacturer?

 
• For new roofing or re-roofing, does their quote include replacing the flashings around chimneys and vents? Not doing so is one way that cheap roofing companies merely appear cheap.

• What type of wood will be used on your roof and in what thickness? For example, using cheap plywood made from pine which is suseptible to warping is another way cheap roofers merely appear cheaper, as opposed to using plywood made from stronger Douglas fir.

• Will they being using nails (proper) or instead using staples (cheaper and faster for them but lacks holding power and can invalidate a manufacturer's warranty)?

When you've chosen the best roofing contractor in Adams County CO for your specific needs, make sure they are licensed with your city or county if that's required by law since Colorado doesn't require a state license roofing contractors. (All roofing companies in Adams County CO bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had their ciyt or county license (if one is required by law) verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)
