Cold Roof vs Shingle roof


#1

What is the better in Breckenridge, CO we get lots of snow?

What is the cost diffence?

My house is almost 40 years old, i’ve been here for 4 years. I think the roof is the origal. I need to replace the roof this summer. I’m planning to be here for at least 5 years, it could be 10-20.

Thanks in advance
Michael

Its a term for properly insulated and vented. heat loss is the main culprit in ice dams.

oh then i recommend that w/all roofs,shingles are not a problem-if insulation,ventilation ,and waterproofing are properly dealt with—get a good quality shingle, though the details are usually most important :wink: —gets very cold w/a lot of snow here in new york as well
