Designer roofing options for Denver include the classics – like natural slate and tile. You might see slate roofs in the Denver Country Club areas or Cherry Hills Village with a real slate roofing system. No other organic roofing material gives a grander or more timeless appearance to a stately Denver home as does slate or tile.
While gorgeous, Slate and Tile have their modern drawbacks:
- Slate is a very heavy material. It is rock after all
- Slate often requires additional structural support which creates added cost
- Tile often has the same substructure requirements
- Slate is expensive
- Slate and Tile are fragile
- It is not good to walk on slate or tile if repairs or other work needs to be done on the roof
There are options for you to consider in place of real slate or tile. These designer roofing choices come with many benefits. Cost benefits, durability, installation improvements, color choices, hail resistance, and other long-term benefits come with new technology found in modern roofing materials.
Designer Roofing Options to Consider In Place of Slate or Tile:
Here are several options to consider that we install on some of Denver’s finer homes.
- Davinci Composite Roofing
- Decra Stone Coated Steel
- Metal Roofing mixed with other roofing materials
- Euroshield Hail Proof “Slate” Roofing
The material used in this picture here is NOT real slate. It’s fabulous looking and most decerning people can not tell it’s a manufactured composite material from Davinci Roofscapes. “Composite roofing shingle” means it is made from a combination of resins and other materials to produce a super hard, long-lasting, and beautiful roofing shingle that is lightweight, and hail resistant. It is a modern adaptation to look like a real slate roof but it is a composite material. It is very lightweight, withstands most hail and wind, and it looks like real slate.
