City of Boulder Shake Replacement

Posted by:

In 1994 a bill was passed that all wood shake roofs in Boulder were to be replaced by January 1, 2014. With that deadline looming Boulder homeowners with shake roofs are receiving reminders from the city to have this done with the deadline approaching quickly.

Let Frontier Roofings Systems Inc. help you through the process of finding a new roof type that fits your needs and satisfies the City of Boulder’s requirements. Frontier Roofings Systems Inc. offers numerous products and is certified to install these products. We offer many environmentally friendly options as well that should be considered when replacing your roof.

10-5-5 Wood Roof Covering Materials Prohibited.

(a) No person shall install or cause to be installed any wood roof covering materials, including, without limitation, wood shakes or wood shingles. This prohibition includes wood roof covering materials with fire retardant treatments of any kind.

(b) It shall be a specific defense to a charge of violation of subsection (a) of this section that the wood roof covering materials were installed before January 1, 2014, to repair portions of an existing wood roof, that the repair wood roof covering materials were factory pressure treated so as to be fire retardant and are approved as meeting Class B standards in accordance with section 1501.1 of the building code, and that the wood roof covering materials were installed in a quantity not exceeding fifty percent of the roof surface in any three-hundred-sixty-five-day period.
