Price estimates and quotes

We offer free estimates on all your specific roofing needs, so if you need some accuracy, it’s always best to simply set up an appointment; however, sometimes you’re just looking for a place to start budgeting for a new roof.  We can help you with that, too!

Ball park figures

We often receive calls asking for a “ballpark” cost for repairs or re-roofs. Ballpark pricing is very difficult to do in the roofing industry, as it is in any trade where every job is unique. In order to arrive at a close-enough estimate without actually viewing the roof in question, we must have, at a minimum, as much of the information listed below as possible:

  • Location of the property.
  • General scope of the work (repair, new construction, re-roof, for example.).
  • Specific scope of the work (leak around the skylight, installation of drip edge along the eave, re-flashing a vent, etc.).
  • Size of the roof in square feet or square metres. One square is an area that is 10 feet by 10 feet or 100 square feet.
  • Pitch of the roof (is it easily walked or too steep to walk?).
  • Current material on the roof.
  • Number of layers of current material.
  • Flat or low-slope.
  • Availability of access to the property (can a delivery truck load the roof or will the tear-off and new materials have to be hand carried from a ground-drop location?).
  • Geometric design of the roof (or, as we say in the trade, how “cut up” is it; meaning are there lots of peaks, valleys, skylights, odd geometric shapes like turrets and cupolas?).
  • Number of stories or height of roof from the ground.
  • Desired system to replace the old.
  • Other, outside influences on costs are:
  • Extraneous items attached to the roof (solar panels, satellite dishes, antennas, lightning rods, Santa and his reindeer, swamp coolers.).
  • Stucco walls and chimney or siding.
  • Original decking type (is the decking/sheathing made of wood planks or big sheets of plywood).
  • Special city or county building codes that may apply.

 

Facts are, if any one or more of the above items is left out, it can drastically affect the cost of a roof. Therefore, most ballpark estimates will be grossly inaccurate. Since it costs you nothing to receive a bid if you live within the greater Colorado Springs area, it is to your advantage to have us come out and offer an accurate proposal for the work. If you’re still just thinking about the project and are in no hurry, we’re still happy to meet you and answer your questions. Just call the office and schedule an appointment.

If you are a potential buyer of a property and you want to know what the costs would be to re-roof or repair the property, we will meet with you for a bid; however, we will need approval from the current owner, or owner’s Realtor, to get on the roof.

Our Mission Is Your Roof!

Ventilation

Much confusion exists in the roofing industry about ventilation.  You often hear the term “roof ventilation,” but that term is inaccurate.  More properly, the term is “attic ventilation.”  Your roof is the structure above the trusses on wood-framed roofs, or substrate decking on flat roofs, which are designed by the architect/engineer prior to construction and which remain no matter how many new roof systems come and go

Proper ventilation, however, is very important to your property. Precisely speaking, roofs are not vented. It is the space between the ceiling and the bottom of the roof decking which is vented.  The attic ventilation system is just that, a system. It encompasses a number of factors:

  • The amount of space in the attic
  • The depth and type of insulation
  • The lineal feet and width of the soffet
  • The type, style and number of roof vents.

When all of these elements are properly engineered, the attic ventilation system is said to be “balanced.”

A balanced system

The responsibility for engineering and building a balanced attic ventilation system is that of the original building engineer and the general contractor who built the edifice. It must be built to the code of that day. Generally speaking, as long as the system created at the initial building stays in its original condition, it will vent the attic properly. However, efforts such as:

  • Adding additional insulation that covers up soffet vents
  • Installing a whole-house humidifier
  • Building an addition which changes the amount of area to be ventilated
  • Other activities that alter the space

 

change the factors of the attic ventilation system, which can cause problems such as

  • Condensation build-up in the attic which can drip through the ceiling and down the exterior walls in the winter
  • Heat build-up on the summer, keeping the rest of the structure hot
  • Ice damming at the eaves.

Often, homeowners, and now even some insurance companies, are requiring additional roof vents to be installed at the installation of a new roof.

Simply installing additional roof vents does not constitute “balancing” the system. It is an inaccurate assumption that additional roof vents “fix” any problems with the attic ventilation system.

Roof assessments

While roofing companies will compete for needed re-roofs and repairs by offering free estimates and proposals, few will do the inspection work of your insurance company to see whether your roof is damaged or not without charging a fee. As with any service professional, inspections and assessments without the opportunity to win a contract for work have direct, unrecoverable costs to the contractor.

If your building is in an area that has recently had weather damage, we will happily stop by to check your roof at no cost to you. Just give us a call with your information, and we’ll keep it close to the schedule. When the opportunity arises, we’ll add your property to the schedule and give you a call to let you know what day our representative will be there.

Selling property

Or maybe you are selling your property and wish to know the condition of your roof in anticipation of the negotiation process with buyers.  You may want to have a licensed, professional roofer inspect your roof and provide you with a 5-year certification document to have ready for your prospective buyers.

Assessments and certifications, rendered after a thorough inspection, are professional opinions based on our many combined years of installing and repairing nearly every type of roofing system and by keeping current with products, materials and building code requirements.  They are not, however, warranties or guarantees on the performance of the roof.  A roof can look perfect from above but have hidden installation errors underneath that can give out at any time.  Unless the inspecting roofer was also the installer, there’s no way for him to know exactly what’s under the shingles.

We provide professional assessments and reports, as well. If you need a presentation-quality report on the condition of your roof, we will take pictures, assess problems and strengths.
