Here is a friendly reminder from your favorite Fort Collins roofing company, Fort Collins roofs might be dry right now but that might not last for long. It’s mid-May in Colorado, but that doesn’t mean it’s too late for a spring snow. If you are planning your Fort Collins graduation parties for either Thursday or Friday you may want to have some backup plans to move the party inside. As long as you have a roof your party will be covered.
