Wondering if you should install a new roof or repair your existing roof? Take into account the environmental and economic benefits. In plain language that means installing a new roof is good for the climate and it can help save you money!
Let’s scan those benefits and remember that:
- Roofing estimates are free in the San Gabriel Valley with Garvey Roofing
- All labor and materials are guaranteed to give you peace of mind
The Benefits of Installing a New Roof
#1 You save money on rising prices
Sure, prices have risen in the last several years but do you think prices of roofing materials and labor will rise or fall in the next 40 to 60 years? Especially with the cost of labor in northeastern Los Angeles County.
Install a new roof now and you’ll have a home that’s protected for the next four to five decades, or possibly longer depending on the materials used.
#2 Newest materials reflect the sun’s most damaging rays making your home energy efficient
Garvey Roofing touts the benefits of Therma Sheet as underlayment that helps reflect the sun’s harmful UV rays. Newly manufactured asphalt shingles are made in layers to repel the sun, too. Tile is also coated to combat UV rays.
Rain doesn’t cause leaks. The sun’s heat that we have during July through September weakens adhesion and gradually degrades the materials. The pounding rains we can get on homes along the 210 freeway further weaken older roofing materials by washing away granules.
When the sun comes out fully again in late spring and summer, then the heat is more likely to work its way into the home while the UV rays do more damage to the roof’s shingles.
A newly installed roof ends this vicious cycle.
#3 Today’s roofing materials will last fifty decades or longer
Roofing materials are now built to last, provided they’re installed properly in the first place. You pay once and you’re covered for the next four or five decades—or longer. Multi-dimensional asphalt shingles and tile both have long lives, especially with the right underlayment protecting the decking.
Garvey Roofing can do custom roofs like slate which will last 75 years or longer.
Pay for a roof today and it won’t need updating until your great-grandkids are in their mid-career stage.
#4 New roofs enhance a home’s curb appeal
So many roofing options are available to enhance your home’s overall appearance. Garvey Roofing can choose from available shingle designs and all varieties of tile. Custom roof designs are also available. A client once asked Thomas Garvey to recreate a roof like one she had on her home back east as a child.
