Your roof is the first line of defense against the weather so if you’re wondering if you need a new roof or you can get your roof repaired, let’s look at all that your roof does.
A roof with the best roofing materials that are installed to last for many decades does more than keep rain out of your house. A roof helps direct and channel rainwater.
Let’s take a look.
Remember, all estimates are free and all labor and materials are guaranteed.
A properly installed roof with today’s roofing technology will keep the rainwater on the outside where it belongs. The newest asphalt shingles with attractive multi-dimensional appearances will maintain the important protective UV coating and it won’t get washed away.
The underlayment for shingles and tile roofs should be resilient enough to send the sun’s most harmful UV rays back into the atmosphere while keeping the plywood decking dry for many decades.
Attractive aluminum gutters can give an appearance like crowd molding and channel water away from the walls so it doesn’t pool against the home or commercial building’s foundation. Stucco walls can soak up the water which will eventually bubble beneath the surface and add to the premature aging of your home and degrade your paint job.
Garvey Roofing will install a fine mesh to keep leaves and debris from trees out of your gutters so they become quite low maintenance so they don’t clog.
Garvey Roofing looks at the whole building and Thomas Garvey can help you plan and install a rain harvesting system. You cut down on the amount of water used for fruit trees and flowers during the critical early spring to early summer irrigation season.
We know how important water management is in the San Gabriel Valley. Capturing water runoff from your roof is a great way to conserve water and reduce the impact of drought and dry winters.
Here’s an amazing statistic: Every 1 inch of rain on 1,000 square feet of roof = 600 Gallons of water.
So even in drought years, your roof can help you capture much of that rainfall so you can keep your grounds watered.
The average annual rainfall from Altadena to Monrovia and out to Azusa will total anywhere from 14 inches to 20 inches, varying by community.
Thomas Garvey recommends the Bushman rain harvesting system. He’s also custom built rain capture systems for homeowners.
Keeping moisture out of your home is so important that Garvey Roofing does exterior painting as well to protect your walls from the moisture and the sun’s impact.
A roof doesn’t just sit on top of your house. It’s always hard at work.
