Replacing your roof is expensive. Depending on the size of your home a roof replacement can cost anywhere from several hundred to tens of thousands of dollars, so finding a few ways to save money is important for many homeowners.

The last thing you want to do in Denver is skimp on quality materials, but there are a few different ways to secure discounts (at least eventually) on your Denver roof replacement. Let’s learn the most common ways to get your new roof for less.

5 Ways to Get a Discount on Your Denver Roof

Look for Seasonal Deals

The bulk of Denver roof replacements take place in the summer, but if the weather is at least 40 degrees and dry, you can install asphalt shingles all year-round. Because it’s the slowest time of year, some roofers grant seasonal deals or free upgrades. If the weather is nice and you’re ready, get on the phone or browse local roofing websites to look for some seasonal deals.

Install Impact-Resistant Roofing

I know what you’re thinking, don’t impact-resistant (IR) materials cost more than normal shingles? Yes, you will have to pay more for IR shingles at the beginning, but they for themselves in a few months with insurance premium discounts.

Because your insurance agency knows they’re less likely to a file a claim on your IR roof, they don’t charge as much on your homeowner’s policy. You’ll save even more when your IR roof resists the next hailstorm while your neighbors all have to file claims.

Reflective Roofing

Like IR, reflective roofing cost more than traditional shingles but you can receive discounts in the form of Energy-Star tax credits and much lower monthly utility bills. Homes with reflective materials use less power, and the federal government recognizes the environmental friendliness in the form of green credits. Your local state or town might also provide additional discounts for Energy-star rated materials. Reflective materials are now available in virtually all the cuts and colors of traditional roofing like shingles.

Military Discounts

Many shingle manufacturers offer military discounts to both active and former military personnel. For example, GAF offers the Roof for Troops rebate while IKO offers a U.S. Military Promotion. If you’re a veteran or current member of the military talk to your roofer about discounts and options. You might be surprised how much your service is honored.

Talk to Your HOA

Most Denver-area HOAs mandate what type of roofing you install but you don’t always have to replace your roof with premium materials if the HOA allows it. On top of triple-laminate shingles your HOA might include less expensive IR or traditional architectural shingles. Before your next replacement talk to your HOA to make sure you’re not going overboard.

Can Roofing Company Pay My Deductible?

If you’re replacing your roof as part of an insurance claim should you hire a roofer that offers to cover the cost of your insurance deductible? In Colorado – no. Per Colorado Senate Bill 38, roofing companies are not allowed to pay cash or otherwise cover an insurance deductible. This bill was passed to keep shady roofing companies from strong-arming work with cash offers. Any roofer that offers to pay your deductible knows what they’re doing is against the law and shouldn’t be trusted.

Getting the Most from Your New Roof

If you pay attention to materials, choose a seasonal promotion, and make other smart moves while replacing your roof you can end up with a great discount. Roofing companies tend to run promotions throughout the year so if you’re ever curious – just ask.
