Grand Junction is a destination city in Western Colorado. With the large selection of stores, services, and entertainment many businesses and families call this city home.
The climate in Grand Junction is also significantly different than most other cities in western Colorado. It is considered desert country and the climate is much warmer and dryer than many of the other mountain towns nearby. For these reasons buildings should utilize much different materials for their roofs than of those in cooler, more humid parts of the state.
In the Grand Junction area, we install more tile roofs than in any other area we service. Clay tile roofs are excellent at insulating a home or business during the hot days as they absorb a large amount of heat from the sun. As the day cools and the desert nights grow cold, the tile roofs release heat into the home. This creates a very pleasant and consistent temperature throughout a building at all times of the day and night.
Tile roofs are also excellent at resisting the damaging UV rays of the sun and retain their color much better than steel or some other types of roofing materials.
Still the most common type of roofing in Grand Junction is architectural shingles. We sell and install a huge variety and style of shingles. They are easy and fast to install compared to tile and hold up very well to the climate in this area. The cost difference for installing a shingled roof typically outweighs the benefits of the heavier more labor intensive roofing materials also.
Due to the low amount of rainfall in this part of the state we also install and service many flat roofs. This type of roof is an excellent choice, however the roofing membranes and techniques used to cover them are very important since intense sun, snow, and heavy rain is still a possibility at different times of the year. The torch down and roll on materials we use require skilled and hard working craftsmen to apply properly.
Our company is also fully insured and has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau so you can rest easy when we are onsite at your home or business.
