Here is some general information...if you haven't heard about Boulder's law!
Unless you live in a remote area with no access to media of any kind, you’ve most likely seen images of house fires. Maybe you’ve even seen one in person or experienced it in your own home. Boulder is, after all, no stranger to forest fires that can easily reach homes. In any case, a fire is the last thing any homeowner wants. However, the unfortunate truth is that different housing materials are not made equally, and therefore certain ones are more flammable than others. Wood roofing, for example, will burn much faster than that made with tile, slate or other materials.
As many Boulder homeowners already know, it is for these reasons that the city has mandated that all wood roofs must be replaced with fireproof roofing options by the end of 2014. Though the ordinance was passed in 1994, there are still many homeowners who have only recently become aware of it. Now that it is now 2013, the deadline remains only a year and a half away, and since it is difficult to do roof replacements during the winter months, Boulder residents aren’t left with a lot of time. So, if you are a Boulder city homeowner with a wood shake roof, what do you need to know, and what are your options?
City of Boulder CO Wood Roof Prohibition
Before taking any action, you first need to make sure you understand what exactly the ordinance requires. For example, the ordinance mandates that houses with “wood roofs” must be re-roofed with less flammable materials, but what exactly falls under the definition of a “wood roof”? Essentially, this includes wood shakes, wood shingles, wood composite or any other form of wood roof covering that contains at least 50 percent wood by volume. Even if that wood has received any kind of fire retardant treatment, it still has to go by 2014.
