Denver Roofing Company and Contractor

Denver roofing companies and contractors such as Mile High Roofing, Inc. have a unique opportunity to upgrade, and markedly improve the integrity of a home, when they are called in to install a new roof in Denver.

Before 1950, plywood had not been invented. Many of the older houses in Denver, such as in Capitol Hill or the Five Points area, featured roofs built with what is called “space decking.” Basically, 1” x 8” or 1” x 6” planks were nailed flat, on top of the rafters below, and cedar shake shingles nailed on top.

These planks had small gaps between them, designed to allow the roofing to “breathe.” With the passage of years, and decades, it’s easy to imagine how the natural shrinkage of the planks, as well as the shingles, in our dry climate, led to a huge potential for rain and snowmelt to leak into the soffits, and into the houses themselves, causing all kinds of damage.

Because of this treacherous situation, Denver roofing contractors and companies are required by Denver city code to remove all the roofing and planks down to the rafters, install new plywood deck, then the roofing material on top.

These standards ensure that the new roofing measures up to the quality of any other structural renovating and upgrading a Denver homeowner might do. Mile High Roofing, Inc. specializes in bringing your vintage home up to roofing code, and they can also help you pick a high-performance, classic shingle to enhance its historic beauty.

The importance of hiring a reputable roofing company can’t be underestimated when taking on the extensive project of a new Denver roof. Obviously, more of your home and belongings will be exposed to the elements when the roof is taken down to the rafters, and the excellent care and speed of execution Mile High Roofing, Inc. is renowned for, will be to your advantage.
