If you’re wondering if you should invest and install a new roof or have your roof repaired, consider the benefit of having an energy-efficient home. A new roof can make your home more energy efficient than it is now and reduce your utility bills in the winter and summer.

Here’s how it works.
Many homeowners think installing a solar roof is the best way to have an energy-efficient home. There are benefits and Garvey Roofing can install a solar roof. But Thomas Garvey knows building science and he says going old school can provide savings, be good for the environment, and be much less expensive than installing solar.
Garvey Roofing installs roofs for all seasons throughout the San Gabriel Valley.
A new roof reduces the amount of heat transference in and out of your house or commercial building. During the winter, that means keeping heat inside the home, and during the summer that means keeping heat on the outside.
A new roof lets you:
- Install the proper decking to lay a solid foundation for your roof
- Use the best underlayment like Therma Sheet, that reflects a large percentage of the sun’s most harmful rays
- Install new multi-dimensional asphalt shingles or tile that’s well-coated for UV protection
- Use either low-profile vents or install an attic fan to circulate air that keeps the attic free from moisture in the winter and reduces heat in the summer
- Blow-in insulation that won’t compress and prevents heat from moving through joists in or out of the house
Expect a new roof to last for several decades so the cost is amortized over a half century and perhaps longer.
How do you know if you need a new roof or just a roof repair?
It depends on your roof’s current condition and age. If you have a roof with asphalt shingles curled at the edges and you see granules in your gutter then your roof is aging and it’s becoming time to replace it.
If the tile roof is leaking then the problem could be the underlayment or the flashing. Thomas Garvey will inspect it closely.
He likes knowing the goals of building owners and works within their needs.
For homeowners, Thomas will want to know how long you plan on living in your home. If you’re only planning on living in your place for a few years and then selling, he’ll let you know if a repair will hold off interior leaking.
If you’re planning on living in your home for years to come, or plan to keep it in the family, then investing in a new roof will keep your home energy efficient while reducing the expenses of deferred maintenance.
