Roofing is one of the most competitive markets in Denver and the Front Range region. Whether you need your roof repaired or replaced, finding a roofer in Denver isn’t hard to do. There’s signs up in lawns across the city, you’ll find door hangers when you come after a long day’s work and after a hailstorm, they’ll even come a knocking on your door.

The 2014 roofing season has been particularly busy for Denver roofers because of the abundance of hailstorms and rain in the spring and summer months. On par with the rest of the nation, overall construction costs – including roofing – are on the rise in Denver after finally catching up with the rest of the nation from 2013’s dismal numbers.

Denver is one of the nation’s leading markets for new apartment complexes and building projects. As many contractors are looking to make their mark in Denver, we’re seeing a skyrocket of construction projects ranging from new development to improvements. Many apartment complexes in particular are turning hands as companies out of state are investing in the Denver market, buying out older complexes to renovate and improve upon.

With the recent storms in the Colorado and Midwest region, hailstorm chasers are on the prowl. They’re looking to repair or replace your roof whether you need it or not. While some roofs legitimately need to be replaced or repaired after a hailstorm, it’s important to ensure you’re not being duped even if it seems like you may need the job done. As the upswing in construction in the Denver area is being seen in all markets and construction types, it’s important to stay on top of the trends and scams out there to avoid being duped.

Whether you need your roof repaired or replaced, adding an addition to your home or having some sort of other project done at home or at work, you want to find the best contractor possible to get it completed. Make sure to ask question, get the best timeline and be prepared to deal with in-state and out of state contractors. Denver’s construction boom is a good and bad thing and with a little bit of good luck, you can get the best contractor for your next project.
