Since there is no state-wide license for exterior roofing and siding contractors, each city or county has its own licensing process and requirements. 4 Corners Exteriors holds the proper license in every jurisdiction in which we work.
As required by the state of Colorado, 4 Corners Exteriors keeps current general liability AND workers compensation insurance policies. We are happy to provide you with our policy information upon request.
Absolutely! We will gladly provide references for past projects upon request.
We generally work Monday through Friday, but there may be instances in which we will need to work on Saturday to meet time constraints.
From curb appeal to efficiency, installing new siding on your home can lead to a huge increase in your property’s value. We always recommend that you speak with a licensed real estate professional to see if it would help in your specific situation.
4 Corners Exteriors is proud to be one of the few exterior siding contractors in Loveland, Fort Collins, Greeley, and all of Northern Colorado with an Expert rating from LP® SmartSide®. While installing vinyl siding or fiber cement siding can save you a few dollars in the short term, they are much more susceptible to the intense Colorado weather.
This depends on the condition of your current soffit and fascia. While there may not appear to be any damage, water damage may hide under the surface— invisible until the other components of the siding are removed. An experienced exterior siding contractor will be able to tell you if you need soffit and fascia replacement during your siding installation.
If your house has sustained exterior siding damage, you may be in the position to file a claim under your homeowner’s policy, depending on how it sustained the damage. While not as common as other areas of the country, woodpeckers and other animals can wreak havoc on your siding.
The upside of spotting siding damage is that you can generally see the trouble areas from the safety of the ground. You should generally look for rotted or swollen boards, chew marks, holes, loose boards, or chips taken out of the edges of the siding panels. If you think that you may have damaged siding, call an experienced exterior siding contractor like 4 Corners Exteriors.
Choosing the best siding replacement company can seem like a daunting task. Be sure to do your research and ask for certificates of general liability and workers compensation insurance, a list of referrals, and photos of past projects. Many exterior siding contractors in Colorado are not equipped to handle more than a small siding repair, and can get in over their heads when it comes to full siding replacement. Ask any siding contractor that you speak with for proof of past projects.
While some local codes allow for new roofs to be installed over old roofs, it is seldom recommended. Most shingle warranties require that new roofing systems be installed on clean decking. By removing all remnants of the old roof, your roofing contractor will also be able to inspect your plywood or OSB decking to ensure that there is no rot or other signs of leaks.
It depends on the size and complexity of your roof. Many residential roofs can be safely and efficiently replaced in one to two days, however certain materials and complex roofing systems can take longer. 4 Corners Exteriors never rushes the roof replacement process or cuts corners when it comes to installing a new roofing system.
Class 4 impact-resistant shingles are asphalt shingles that receive a higher impact rating than standard architectural shingles. This means that they can withstand larger hailstones without sustaining destructive damage, due to a reinforced padding built into the shingle.
The building departments of Fort Collins and unincorporated Larimer County now require class 4 impact-resistant shingles to be installed on all new roof replacements, and we expect other surrounding building departments to follow suit.
The price of your roof replacement depends entirely on the size and complexity of your roof. Every roof that 4 Corners Exteriors installs strictly follows northern Colorado roofing building codes and manufacturer install directions. The type of materials used to build your new roof will also play a major factor in the cost.
There are a few ways to tell if you need a new roof. One of the most tell-tale signs of a roof leak is discoloration or signs of water on your ceilings or walls. Other signs include cracked or missing shingles or an abnormal amount of granules in your gutters. Schedule a free roof inspection with us if you are unsure.
Ice and water shield is a self-adhering membrane that is installed above the eaves on roof decking. It helps to prevent damage from ice damming, which is common in northern Colorado roofing because of our climate region. Most local building codes require ice and water shield, and for safety reasons it should be installed regardless whenever an asphalt shingle roof is replaced.
You should choose your roofing contractor based on a number of factors. Always ensure that a roofing company is local, has both liability and workers compensation insurance, and is able to provide references.
The short answer is that any size of hail can damage your roof. Other variables factor into the damaging properties of hail, including wind speed, direction, velocity, and the compressive strength of the hailstones.
Hail, like other weather events, can be very finicky. Generally speaking, when a hail storm damages a roof in a neighborhood, other houses in the vicinity have also sustained damage. However, there have been instances where more damaging hail hits one house but not another on the same street. Schedule a free home roof inspection as soon as possible to avoid further damage.
When hail hits an asphalt shingle, it knocks the asphalt granules off of the shingle and bruises the fiberglass matting under the granules. This damage leaves the shingle susceptible to the sun’s UV rays and water intrusion.
You may require roof hail damage repair if you see that there are sporadic dark spots or “bruises” that are soft when pressed. We recommend that you regularly have a home roof inspection by a licensed roofing contractor.
Every insurance carrier’s policy is different when it comes to the timeframe to file your claim. This is why we recommend that you have a home roof inspection as soon as possible after a storm and file a claim. Talk to your insurer if there are any signs that you need roof hail damage repair services or signs of damage to other areas of your house, including paint, windows, or gutters.
There’s no shortage of roofing repair services and companies in Loveland, Fort Collins, Greeley, and the surrounding areas. This can make choosing the best contractor for your roof hail damage repair seem like a daunting task. Always remember to ask for a certificate of general liability and workers compensation insurance, a copy of the roofing contractor’s license, and a few references. It can also be helpful to read online reviews if you know what you’re looking for.

While vinyl siding can technically be painted using a special product and specific set of colors, we do not recommend it. The intense UV rays in Colorado can be absorbed into the pigment of the paint applied to vinyl siding and cause the siding itself to warp, essentially ruining it over time.

Generally speaking, most roofs can be coated. However, some may not be the best candidate for a commercial roof coating due to the method of past repairs, the condition of the substrate, or the type of substrate. It’s important to ask an experienced roof coating contractor if your roof is a good candidate for a restorative coating.
Absolutely. The proper application of a commercial roof coating can extend the life of your roof for 10-20 years.
Depending on the type of roof you have, a commercial roof coating is a fraction of the cost of replacing your roof. This can end up saving anywhere from 40%-70% of the cost to replace the entire roof.
While the type of commercial roof coating used depends on the style of roof that you have, the two most common types of roof coating are silicone and acrylic (elastomeric). An experienced commercial roof coatings contractor will be able to tell you which type of coating is the best fit for your roof.
Roof coatings are a great proactive approach for your roofing system. Even if there are no leaks or signs of damage, a properly applied roof coating can protect your roof against the damaging weather and harmful UV rays that are common in Colorado.
Most commercial roof coating manufacturers require that a contractor is certified to apply their system before providing a warranty for the project. Be sure to ask a roof coatings company if they are certified by a coating manufacturer.
