Roofs That Weather the Storm: Hail Resistant Roofs
Product: Malarkey Legacy Sienna Blend
We installed this Malarkey Legacy Sienna Blend roof in 2016, a week before the worst hailstorm in Colorado Springs history. The result? A broken skylight. The Malarkey Legacy impact resistant shingle was not significantly damaged like other roofs in the neighborhood.
For this Skyway customer, we were able to give new life to an old flat roof using a special coating product called GACOFlex. This product comes with a 50 year warranty from the manufacturer.

Malarkey Windsor Natural Wood, Impact Resistant Roof
This project required removing an existing shake roof. Since shake roofing is more easily flammable than other roofing products, the Pikes Peak Regional Building Department requires a different shingle or tile to be installed when replacing this type of roof. The Bank at Broadmoor (now Independent Bank) chose the Malarkey Windsor product for its shake-like look and ability to withstand hail.

This Rockrimmon home sustained fire damage during the 2012 Waldo Canyon Fire. The owners wanted a unique look for their roof when they rebuilt. The copper roofing panels and flashings give this roof a glow all of its own.
Decra Shake XD Pinnacle Gray
This Broadmoor house took advantage of the Decra product to replace their shake roof with a fire-resistant product while maintaining a similar look. This concrete tile is a great way to maintain the distinctive look of shake.
Historic Roof Replacements in Colorado Springs
Colorado Springs Old North End
Colorado Springs’ Old North End is a designated Historic District. Roofing a historic home or building like this one on North Cascade requires a special permit to ensure that the products used maintain the historic beauty of the home. This re-roof project required removing the original cedar shingle roof. This neighborhood posts its guidelines for construction projects on their site at http://oldnorthend.org/.
The Independent, or “the Indy” to locals, is an edgy source of original, local news and culture that was founded in the early ‘90s by John Weiss and Kathryn Carpenter Eastburn. The Indy is currently located in the beautiful simplicity of the Old United Brethren Church, a historic local building.
When we think about roofing Colorado Springs, we often think about the work we’ve done in Ivywild, the neighborhood where we live and work in Westside Colorado Springs.
