Roofing in Denver: A Unique Challenge


The Mile-High Climate

Denver’s unique Mile-High climate presents roofing challenges that require a deep understanding of the local conditions. With a wide range of temperatures and frequent weather changes, your roof must withstand it all. Ernie’s Roofing excels in selecting materials that can endure Denver’s weather extremes, ensuring your roof’s longevity.


Hail and Storms

Denver experiences its fair share of hailstorms and severe weather. These events can cause significant damage to your roof. Knowing how to assess and address hail and storm damage is crucial in maintaining your roof’s integrity. Ernie’s Roofing has a track record of successfully repairing and replacing roofs after such events.


Signs Your Roof Needs Attention

Damaged Shingles

One of the most visible signs that your roof needs attention is damaged shingles. These can manifest as cracks, curls, or missing shingles. Here’s a real-life example:

Example: Imagine you’re inspecting your roof, and you notice shingles that resemble a dry, cracked riverbed. These shingles are telling you that they can no longer shield your home from the elements.

Leaks and Water Stains

Water stains on your ceiling or walls are clear indicators of a roof leak. Delaying repairs can lead to more significant problems, such as structural damage and mold growth.

Example: Picture this – you notice a damp spot on your living room ceiling. This unsightly blemish is a red flag that your roof is compromised. Don’t wait; act promptly.


Repair vs. Replacement

Roof Repair


  • Cost-Effective: Roof repairs are often less expensive than full replacements.
  • Quick Turnaround: Repairs are usually completed faster, minimizing inconvenience.
  • Preservation: Repairing specific areas can extend your roof’s life.


  • Temporary Fix: Repairs address immediate issues but may not prevent future problems.
  • Matching Materials: Finding an exact match for older roofs can be challenging.

Roof Replacement


  • Long-Term Solution: Replacement provides a fresh start, ensuring a longer roof lifespan.
  • Modern Materials: Upgrading to newer, more durable materials.
  • Warranty: Many new roofs come with warranties for added peace of mind.


  • Cost: Roof replacements can be more expensive upfront.
  • Time-Consuming: Replacement projects take longer to complete.
