If you’re wondering if you should get a new roof or repair your old roof, here’s a chat with a new roof from Garvey Roofing.
A roof doesn’t just sit on top of your home or commercial building. You’ll be surprised how hard it works.
Let’s listen in.
Q&A with a Garvey Roofing roof
Q: So, roof, you’re just hanging out again today?
Roof: You wouldn’t want me to get up and leave would you?
Q: Of course not.
Roof: But that’s what some roofs do, little by little. A poorly driven nail gets loose and falls off the ridge caps. A shingle or two gets blown away in our Santa Ana winds and homeowners don’t even notice.
A Roof for All Seasons
Q: How do you help a building?
Roof: Let’s start with keeping out the heat during the summer months. That’s important in the San Gabriel Valley, especially with homes exposed to the sun in places like Rowland Heights and Alhambra.
Q: Isn’t keeping out the rain your most important job? Which is easy because we don’t get too much rain, unless you’re in the foothill neighborhoods of Monrovia, Arcadia, and Pasadena.
Roof: My job is easy? I heat up to 150 degrees or more in the hottest weather and thanks to my underlayment I send lots of that heat back into the atmosphere so it doesn’t seep into your attic and living spaces.
Older roofs don’t have the strength to do what I do because it’s the heat that degrades the older underlayment, loosens the seams, and erodes the UV coating on older tile roofs and roofs with asphalt shingles.
Garvey Roofing is my best friend because Thomas Garvey’s team uses Therma Sheet, makes sure the decking underneath me is solid and helps keep me cool by fanning me off. That’s one of the benefits of a new roof.
Q: He fans you off?
Roof: With an attic fan or low-profile vents. Garvey Roofing makes sure the heat rises up and out of me in the hottest weather and the ventilation keeps me dry when the rains hit.
I help keep utility costs much lower than an older roof who’s done its job. And the good news is that I’ll be around for the next 50 years or so.
But I’ve got other ways I help keep a home’s value or commercial building as high as possible.
Roof: By gutters to channel away from a home’s foundation so the water’s not absorbed in the walls and eventually causes the foundation to decay. I also harvest rainwater. Garvey Roofing can install a rainwater harvesting system so you can water your plants into the spring and summer months when they’re blossoming.
I also look good for homes who want to boost the curb appeal of their home.
Q: So you’re a roof for all seasons?
