It's tempting to go for an online marketplace sold roofing material instead of trusting local roofing manufacturers. For many Littleton, CO homeowners, the prices they find online are a bargain. Unfortunately, that comes with some caveats too -- such as dependable and reliable Littleton, CO roofers refusing to install the roofing materials on your behalf.
They refuse to do so because roofing labor makes up only 40% of the roof's overall performance. The remaining percentage is the roofing material itself. Installation can only achieve so much, but if the protective asphalt shingle UV coating on your roof wears out faster than branded local materials, it becomes problematic.
Furthermore, most roofing contractors in Colorado receive certification from top-notch local roofers because manufacturers expect them to install roofing materials in the best and most reliable way possible. In doing so, they provide maximal value and efficient, long-lasting roofing for homeowners.
Without proper installation, even the tried-and-proven product enhancements and studies of top-shelf manufacturers, such as IKO and Certainteed, won't last as long. On the other hand, labor alone working with problematic roofing products won't ensure a long-lasting roof either.
