What type of roof is best for Denver weather?

Thumbtack Editors

To withstand Denver’s cold weather, consider installing a metal or slate roof. Metal roofs are energy-efficient because they reflect sunlight, which keeps your house cooler in the summer. If you’re leaning toward installing asphalt shingles, skip organic shingles and choose fiberglass asphalt shingles instead — they’re better at withstanding temperature fluctuations.

When it comes to longevity, metals roofs are known to last up to 50 years, and slate roofs can last even longer. Asphalt roofs, on the other hand, last for about 20 years.
