Contractor Offering EPDM Roofing in Denver Publishes Blog Post on What Homeowners Can Do If They Can’t Do DIY Roofing
Ropa Roofing, a contractor offering various kinds of roofs including ethylene propylene diene terpolymer (EPDM) roofing, has announced that they have published an article on their site to offer advice to homeowners on what they can do for their roof if performing DIY roofing is not advisable. If the roof has been damaged and homeowners cannot afford yet to have the roof repaired or replaced, they can use some tarp roofing instead of doing some DIY roofing. This makes use of tarpaulin, which is a durable plastic material that is often used to cover machines and ensures there would be no leaks. Tarpaulins are often used by construction companies to cover their equipment to protect them from water damage.
Brent Roper, President of Ropa Roofing, says, “While they’re not a permanent roof fix, tarps can defend your roof against leaks. Furthermore, you can implement the solution effectively and quickly. You’ll just need to spread it across your roof. Then, you can use heavy stones or specialized staplers the manufacturer included to secure it in place.”
However, homeowners must make sure that they choose the appropriate tarpaulin. It is essential to choose those tarps that have been designed for heavy duty use. First and foremost, the tarp must be waterproof to keep rainwater out during a heavy storm. And they should be strong enough to withstand the forces of the wind to ensure that they won’t break and allow water to get through. It is also advisable to make sure the tarp is mildew-resistant and rust-resistant. Those who would like to read the Ropa Roofing blog post may want to visit the blog section of their website.
For residential roofing, Ropa Roofing offers a number of services, such as asphalt shingles installation, metal roofing, roof tiles, wood shake roofs, slate roofs, and roof shingles. For commercial roofing, they offer EPDM flat roofing, PVC roofing, TPO flat roofing, and torch down roofing. They also offer other related services, such as window installation, siding repair, gutter installation, hail damage repair, and storm damage claims.
EPDM roofing is preferred by some commercial property owners and even some homeowners because it is a cost-efficient material. It also provides excellent protection against the sun’s UV rays, it is an effective insulation, and it can function as an all-around long-term roofing solution.
EPDM is a cost-efficient material for roofs because it only costs approximately 10 percent of the cost of the thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) roof material. It is less expensive because it is made from recycled rubber from off-road worthy tires, sawdust, and slate dust. The EPDM roof is assured to be leak-proof and penetration-proof as it complies with ASTM D4637. It also serves as a heat insulation and protection against UV rays. EPDM roofs are also expected to last for at least 40 years.
Ropa Roofing also specializes in asphalt shingle roofing for homes in Denver. To ensure the best quality asphalt shingle roof, they use premium asphalt shingles from top manufacturers, such as GAF, Owens Corning, CertainTeed, TAMKO Building Products, and Atlas Roofing. Asphalt shingle roofing is often preferred because of its fast and easy installation, low maintenance requirements, and aesthetic appeal.
For residential homes, metal roofing is also some of the most preferred kinds of roofs in Denver. This is because of the extreme durability of the metal roof, requiring only minimal maintenance, and ability to last up to 100 years depending on the type of metal used.
Meanwhile, roof tiles are a great alternative to asphalt shingles for homeowners who want a roof that can last up to 100 years. Metal roofs are also popular because they can be made to look like clay or asphalt tiles. And while they offer the aesthetics offered by clay or asphalt tiles, they are much more durable and long-lasting.
Homeowners and other property owners who need EPDM roofing in Denver and surrounding areas or any other kind of roofing may want to check out the Ropa Roofing website or contact them on the telephone or through email. They are open 24 hours a day, each day of the week.
