Littleton Roofing Contractors and Companies

Roofing contractors in Littleton, Colorado, such as Mile High Roofing, Inc., are required by the City’s code to provide an extra measure of protection when replacing a roof.

When snow melts unevenly on a roof it can sometimes cause “ice dams,” — small hills of snow and ice that pond up standing water behind them, when the snow above the “dam” melts faster than the dam itself. This ponded water can freeze in place, or seep under the shingles and into the soffit, causing expensive damage that goes unnoticed till it’s too late.

The same effect can occur if gutters are full of debris, backing up rainwater onto and under the shingles.

Littleton roofing companies are required to install “ice and water shield” under the shingles over the soffit of the roof, and extending up two feet past the inside firewall. The shield is a 30” wide rolled waterproof mineral material; depending on the size of the soffit, it may take 1-3 rolls just to cover the eaves.

Although this Littleton roofing ordinance raises the cost somewhat, it can really prevent some long-term, much more expensive problems.

Mile High Roofing, Inc. provides a distinct advantage to Littleton customers. Says owner Scott Jeffrey. “We are a preferred contractor with Owens-Corning, and, as such, we can offer upgraded warranties, if we use three of their roofing accessories--ice and water shield being one of them.

“Other approved accessories include items such as ridge cap, vent systems, and starter strip.

“For our Metro-Denver roofing customers, other than in Littleton, who want to take advantage of the upgraded warranty, we will sometimes use the ice and water shield material on the north side of the roof where there is the least amount of sun, and most potential for damage.

Count on Mile High Roofing’s extensive local knowledge of specialized roofing requirements, to bring you the best value and protection for your home, while keeping your project up to code.
