Colorado is home to some of America's most beautiful landmarks and national parks. However, most of our land is protected and many landfills are starting to reach their limits. This year, many counties in Colorado will start seeing another increase in these landfill/dumping fees. What does this mean if you're a business owner?
This means it will cost even more when you have to replace your roof, and maybe some major repairs will jump in price too. Some places in Colorado are seeing increases up to $10 per ton, which can equal to thousands of dollars. Typically, non-environmentally friendly roofs can last roughly about 10-15 years in Colorado without maintenance. This is due to many factors just such as drastic weather changes in climate from cold to warm, and then back again. Those weather changes cause buildings to contract, expand, then contract again which can lead to leaks and more. Also, hail plays a significant factor and proper maintenance with any roof is key. The sun is very intense here since we are much higher in elevation, hence the reason for UV Rays deteriorating things much faster than other areas in the US.
