Specializing In Residential Roofing
We realize most people don't think too much about a roof replacement until there is a problem. Colorado's climate provides your roof not only damage from hail storms, but also harsh sun, wind, snow, and rain. If you feel your roof has been damaged by a natural disaster, you are most likely entitled to a roof replacement. Your roof is an integral part of one of your largest investments and something you want to protect.
There are many roofing materials available to construct a new roof on your home. We help you in determing the best materials to re-roof your home in Colorado. We pride ourselves in the part we play in making your home the most beautiful on the block.
ROOF REPAIR AND ROOF LEAK DETECTION
Many times a roof only needs minor repairs. There are visual cues to know if your home may be in need of roof repairs. If you have noticed any of the signs below or would just like to put your mind at ease contact All Angles Covered Roofing for a complimentary roof inspection and assesment to determine what, if any, roof repairs are needed.
LOOSE SHINGLES · BENDING SHINGLES · CURLING SHINGLES
Shingle problems are one of the leading causes of roof leaks. Many times, you as the homeowner can see shingle problems just by looking at your roof. If you have loose shingles, missing shingles, bending shingles or curling shingles, give us a call so one of our roof inspectors can determine if you are in need of a roof repair.
ROOF ROT · DARK PATCHES ON YOUR ROOF DECKING
If you are able to visually inspect the underside of your roof (roof decking) from your attic, you may see dark patches or spots. These areas can lead to deteriation of your decking allowing water to penetrate and cause leaks. A professional roof inspection can detect if your roof is suffering from deteriorating roof decking and give you solutions to eradicate the problem.
LOOSE FLASHING OR GUTTERS
Flashing is the metal parts sealing the connections around your chimney, vent pipes, or anything sticking out of your roof. If flashing or gutters are loose or not connected properly, water can seep in your home and cause a huge problem which can be slow to develop, but can cause major problems down the road. Inspection of your roof flashing and gutters is another component of our complimentary roof evaluation.
When roof leaks are obvious, they need to be dealt with immediately. Severe damage to your homes structure, contents, and wallet can result if left untreated. Our roof inspectors can help in the detection of where your roof is leaking and take measures to correct the problem.
GUTTERS & DOWNSPOUTS
Gutters allow rain and snowmelt to drain off your roof and divert away from your homes basement and foundation. Gutters that are broken, leaking, sagging, rusted, offer poor drainage or are not securely attached can't function properly and detract from your homes curb appeal. Failure to correct a problem with your gutters can result in water damage to your home. Left untreated problems with gutters and downspouts usually start slow and result in huge problems quickly. Properly working gutter systems play an important role in preserving your property.
If your roof has been damaged by hail, most likely your gutters and downspouts are damaged as well. Your insurance claim will allow for replacement of such damage. Our gutter installers are professionals at replacing your entire gutter and downspout system.
We offer a large selection of colors and quality materials such as aluminum, steel and copper in our seamless gutters and downspouts.
Why vent your attic?
Ventilation of your home attic is important for two reasons:
1) Temperature Control
During warmer months, ventilation helps keep attics cooler, which in turn makes your home easier to cool and can result in lower energy costs. In colder months attic ventilation helps maintain a cool roof temperature which controls ice dams created by melting snow.
2) Moisture Control
During winter months, ventilation helps reduce moisture and keeps attics dry. It stops water from backing up under shingles which can damage insulation and rot the roof structure itself. Ice dams can also form if a roof is not properly ventilated. Ice dams occur in Colorado because snowfall and cold temperatures are common. They pose a special problem because they prevent melt water from running off the roof. Ice dams can even cause leaks inside your home, resulting in drywall damage.
One of the most important things a homeowner needs to consider is proper attic ventilation. Many homes do not have proper ventilation, are under-vented, and almost always not in balance. What we mean by balance is providing appropriate amount of rooftop exhaust equal to air intake. A balanced attic ventilation system will reduce your utility costs and lengthen the life of your roof and HVAC system. Proper attic ventilation systems allow a continual flow of outside air through the attic.
Ventillation is most crucial during high temperature months. Colorado's higher elavations and exposure to solar radiation make it crucial to properly ventilate your home's attic. Without proper ventilation, your roof decking can warp, roof felt can buckle, and shingles can deteriorate prematuraly.
Properly installed ventilation allows your home to breathe and can save you hundreds of dollars in repair costs.
If you are concerned about your ventilation and would like one of our trained project managers to evaluate your attic vents, request a complimentary consultation and estimate by calling 303.758.0505, and we will schedule an appointment.

BECOME VOID IF AN ATTIC IS NOT PROPERLY VENTED!
ICE DAMS FORM EITHER BECAUSE OF INADEQUATE VENTILATION, INSULATION, OR BOTH!
ATTICS ARE THE GREATEST SINGLE AREA OF HEAT LOSS IN YOUR HOME.
NOW IS THE TIME TO ADD ATTIC INSULATION!
YOUR INVESTMENT WILL BE REWARDED.
YOU WILL SAVE MONEY ON ENERGY BILLS!
ATTIC INSULATION CAN LOWER HEATING AND COOLING COSTS BY AS MUCH AS 15%-25% PER YEAR!
IF YOUR HOME IS EXPERIENCING ANY OF THESES PROBLEMS YOU MAY NEED ATTIC INSULATION:
· Drafts in rooms
· Uneven temperatures between rooms
· Hot or cold, walls, ceilings, or whole rooms
· High heating or cooling bills
· Ice dams on the roof in the winter
HOW INSULATION WORKS:
FiberglasTM Insulation works on the principle of trapped air pockets. Millions of tiny air pockets form between the tangled strands of the FiberglasTM Insulation. These air pockets resist the passage of heat flow through the material, reducing heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer. Generally, the thicker the insulation, the more air pockets and the higher the R-value.
I HAVE INSULATION DO I NEED MORE?
If you want to check yourself, a quick way to do so is to look at your attic floor. If your existing insulation just comes up to the tops of the joists, you would most likely benefit by adding more. If you are not able to see the joists and the insulation is well above them, you're probably okay. If you're not sure, or would like one of our professionals to give you a quick assesment of your attic insulation and give you specific solutions, you can contact All Angles Covered Roofing here.

A major upgrade to your home's appearance is new siding. Vinyl siding is tough and comes in many colors and textures. Sophisticated manufacturing techniques in vinyl siding can acurately mimick wood-grain lap siding, wood shingles and even stone. The color is throughout the siding so nicks and scratches don't show as much.
Vinyl siding makes a good retrofit material because it can be installed over existing material on many homes. It is also lightweight and easy to handle which makes for quicker installation and lower labor install cost.
Vinyl siding never needs painting. Dirt just washes off making for little or no maintenance! Vinyl siding is relatively low priced compared to other siding materials and is recyclable.
