Insulation

Here at Garvey Roofing Inc., we don’t just do roofing. We also do insulation, solar panels, and rain gutter installations. Furthermore, we also do general contracting. The reason why we have a general contracting license is because we know, when it comes to roofing, there’s more than just putting a roof on a house. There’s…

Buyers and Sellers

Here at Garvey Roofing Inc. we get calls from people who are asking for either inspections or estimates on houses that are being sold. We get quite a few calls for these because we give free estimates, which people take to mean that we also do free inspections as well, which we don’t, and here’s…

I’m still here

Hey everyone! All…. two of you…. three? Been a while. My creative sparkplug has not been firing as of late. It’s been odd here, what with summer and people saying “Eh, I’ll do it later” with their roofs. Funny story, kind of. Interesting at least: Fourth of July rolled around (yes, two months ago… 174…

Mold is something we get to deal with a lot here in roofing. We have been called more lately with people who have had this issue due to, well, the recent rains.

Furthermore, I’ll simply post one of my favorite words here and move on: Fortitude: mental and emotional strength in facing difficulty,…

Writing

*cue Twilight Zone creepy theme music* We unlock this door with the key of clicking ta link. Behind it, is some weird stuff. Weird sounds, weird sights, and evidence of a profoundly odd mind. You’re moving into a land of mostly unrelated rhetoric with the occasional aside to actual roofing information. You’ve entered… this blog. for…

El Nino!! Right? …guys?

So, the El Nino scare (pretend there’s the little squiggly line above the N there) got everyone… ah… scared. In terms of roofing, at least. One of the many funny things about roofing is how the work goes along with the weather patterns. Which in a way is nice, because during the summer it doesn’t…

Makes ya wonder…

Throughout my (three? almost three?) months here at Garvey Roofing Inc., Tom has relayed to me some… strange… stories about people he’s met while out on estimates. He goes out into the sprawl that is Los Angeles and witnesses a variety of people. I’d estimate he’s met one person in every area that is the “cultural…
