Cold Roof vs Shingle roof

What is the better in Breckenridge, CO we get lots of snow?

What is the cost diffence?

My house is almost 40 years old, i’ve been here for 4 years. I think the roof is the origal. I need to replace the roof this summer. I’m planning to be here for at least 5 years, it could be 10-20.

Thanks in advance

1st off,what exactly do you mean by "cold"roof?,i`ve never heard that term before

Its a term for properly insulated and vented. heat loss is the main culprit in ice dams.

oh then i recommend that w/all roofs,shingles are not a problem-if insulation,ventilation ,and waterproofing are properly dealt with—get a good quality shingle, though the details are usually most important :wink: —gets very cold w/a lot of snow here in new york as well
