T-Lock Roofs are Getting Replaced*

A discontinued roofing product called “T-LOCK” currently covers thousands of Colorado homes. Your home may have this roofing system – it has a very distinctive look and pattern to it. The T-Lock roofing material is no longer manufactured and is not available for repairs.  If your home has this system and you have any damage… it can’t be repaired.  Since it can’t be repaired, we’ve been successful helping many home owners’ secure complete new roofs through their insurance companies. Colorado Roofing and Construction is experienced at helping homeowners with T-Lock product. The amount of Hail Damage required qualifying for a new roof is minimal due to the nature of the situation with T-Locks.

A brief history on T-Lock…
T-lock shingles have fallen from common use in recent years. They were configured to self-lock into each other using lateral tabs and slots, like a 3-tab with ears that could be inserted behind the tab to either side. T-Locks have been widely believed to be more wind-resistant than seal-down shingles because of the overlap system, but they are frequently assigned the same tested wind-resistance rating as a 3-tab or architectural shingle of the same warranty period.

Three reasons T-Lock shingles are no longer made:

  1. Time consuming installation.
  2. Appearance
  3. Cost

Home inspectors for insurance underwriters are being instructed to report the presence of T-Lock shingles as a major insurance hazard. Some companies may cancel or deny coverage if this type of shingle exists on the roof.  Therefore, having this roofing type could make selling your home difficult.   


What you see is the basic look of a T-Lock shingle. Often this system is installed in high wind areas because of their wind resistance.

They were installed in certain areas of the country and have been discontinued.




 The following drawing shows the distinctive “T-Lock look” like without the hidden lines.

What is Hail Damage?

Hail is a large frozen ball of rain that is often produced by thunderstorms. When large hail and strong winds combine, they can cause serious damage to your house and property, especially your roof, siding, gutters, and windows.

How did Hail damage my roof?

Hail can hit hard and has been known to break windows and dent cars.  Hail can cause soft spots, dents or bruising to your shingles.  In some cases the hail will break all the way through the shingle.  Hail will also often cause dents or marks on the metal roof venting system.  Hail damage MAY or MAY NOT be visible.

How did Hail damage my siding and gutters?

Vinyl siding will normally show breaks, cracks, or holes.  Aluminum siding will often have dents in it.  Dents visible from hail on your siding are often cosmetic, but in most cases are still covered by insurance.  Hail can dent or even put holes in your gutters.

What will Hail Damage do?

Hail damage will allow water to seep through your roof into your ceilings and walls.  This can cause many thousands of dollars of damage that are NOT covered by insurance.  This will also cause mold to grow, which is a massive health risk for you and your family.

How can your roof become damaged by wind? 

Roofing materials are subject to damage from strong winds and flying debris. Generally, roofs may be damaged by winds of moderate intensity, with gust that may reach 50 to 75 miles per hour. The primary cause of wind damage is from the partial vacuum created by wind blowing over the edge of the roof. Nature tries to neutralize the low-pressure area by bringing in air from a higher pressure area, usually from inside the building. This air pushes up on the bottom side of the roof assembly and, over time, loosens fasteners and breaks the adhesion making the roof susceptible to damage from the next moderate or strong wind. To counteract the effects of wind-uplift forces, the roofing and insulation should be adequately fastened to the roof deck, and a securely-fastened perimeter detail should be provided.
