If selling your home is likely during 2022 or in the next few years in the San Gabriel Valley then make sure your roof and insulation are in good shape. Reports from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) shows the value of roofing and insulation: “According to Realtors, home buyers love a new roof, which will reap 105% of your costs at resale, followed by a new garage door (87%), new vinyl siding (83%), and new vinyl windows (80%)” (2015 New Report Reveals the Real Reasons to Renovate)–see link at end of post).
Those who plan to live in their homes also experience a high quality of life with a new roof.
Learn about the roofing joy score.
Kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms rank high in the remodeling priority for homeowners. New home buyers want to see how a kitchen is presented because it’s the heart of a home.
But nothing comes between you and the weather like your roof.
Garvey Roofing’s offices in Monrovia provide easy access to homes in cities like Arcadia and Pasadena where a properly installed roof helps a home become energy efficient. On the surface, a reflective underlayment along with new asphalt shingles and tile reduce the surface temperature.
Inside the attic, proper insulation and ventilation keep the air flowing so summer temps stay as low as possible and the attic stays dry in the winter.
That’s how Garvey Roofing provides a roof for all seasons.
Homeowners who know their roof is in good shape have a positive feeling about their home. You can see the findings in the image. 61% choose to install a new roof to upgrade worn out materials. Another 15% will do so because it’s time for a change.
What if you’re not selling your home? A new roof and new insulation will help you enjoy being at home since 65% of those surveyed “Have a greater desire to be home since completing the project.”
A roof has a joy score of 9.5!
NAR reports from both 2015 and 2019 reveal the importance of roofing.
The big question
Thomas Garvey says the number one question he gets from homeowners is “Do I need a new roof or can I get my roof repaired?”
As a local contractor, Thomas says he’ll work with homeowners on their budgets and needs. If a family needs a repair and that lets their roof remain good shape for years to come then he’ll do a repair. Sometimes, repairing the flashing around vents or chimneys may be all that’s needed.
Homeowners who plan to stay in their homes for years to come should consider a new roof with materials that will last for decades. New roofs will make a home more energy efficient than a home with older roofing materials.
Do a little observation to see if you might need a new roof:
- Buckling underneath the shingles
- Excessive shingle granules in the gutter
- Missing shingles and worn ridge caps
- Watermarks in the attic
Decking that’s rotted beneath underlayment may not be visible but needs replacing.
Garvey Roofing uses the latest materials and can make custom roofs like Thomas did for a customer who wanted her roof to look her home back east. Thomas has been in business for over 30 years and holds four roofing licenses.
