C.R.S 6-22-101 - 6-22-105: Colorado's new roofing contract requirements
On June 6th 2012, the Colorado legislature passed landmark new residential roofing laws. ( C.R.S. 6-22-101 thru 6-22-105) The new law, which applies to residential properties, requires contractors offering to perform roofing work to sign a written agreement with the property owners clarifying the scope and cost of the roofing work and contact information for the contractor. Roofing contractors are also required to permit property owners to rescind a contract and obtain a refund of any deposit paid with in 72 hours of executing the agreement. Finally, the bill prohibits roofing contractors from paying, waiving, rebating, or promising to pay, waive, or rebate all or any part of the property owner's insurance deductible. Both roofing contractors and property owners need to be educated on the new requirements before entering into an agreement for roof repairs.
