Commercial roofs in the San Gabriel Valley come in a variety of styles and present different challenges for many local roofing contractors.
Garvey Roofing, with headquarters in Monrovia, is versatile and has installed and repaired new roofs for historic buildings, apartments, and many commercial buildings from Arcadia to Alhambra and the cities in between.
Just like he does with residential roofs, Thomas Garvey sizes up the need and determines the course of action. Sometimes, a small repair is all that’s needed. He’s able to correct internal moisture buildup on overhangs that cause leaks and his team is skilled at covering a low-slope roof with internal drains, as you can see in this roofing video.
What to Know About Commercial Roofing
Local church buildings have steep roofs similar to houses while other commercial buildings have completely different needs like low slope roofs with internal drains. Roofs have similar components in their system—the decking, the underlayment, and the surface material. Ventilation beneath the roof is key.
For commercial-grade roofs with low slope roofs covering a large area, preventing leaks is a challenge around the drains, rooftop vents, and any seams in the material. Proper sealing techniques become essential so don’t leaks don’t appear.
Garvey Roofing holds four roofing licenses and is a roofing craftsman.
Commercial Roofs for All Seasons
Garvey Roofing holds four roofing licenses and Thomas Garvey approaches every job with an understanding of building science. Installing a new roof on a commercial building along Foothill Boulevard in Duarte isn’t the same thing as roofing a local church with a steep roof or a restaurant on Live Oak Avenue.
Every roof is installed or repaired to perform as well in chilly, heavy rains as it is in the heat of summer.
Thomas Garvey also considers how the roof will fit the weight and structure of the building. He’s worked on contemporary commercial grade cinder block exterior buildings and has roofed delicate historic homes in Heritage Square off the 110 freeway, just south of Highland Park and north of downtown Los Angeles.
Newly installed roofs should be as energy efficient in August and September as they are in December and January.
Single-ply membranes are among the most popular roofing products for commercial buildings, and the underlayment Therma Sheet is an excellent roofing material for reflecting the sun’s most harmful rays back into the atmosphere.
