Garvey Roofing installs roofs for all seasons … and once-in-a-decade or so weather like the kind we’re having this weekend. The featured image is the flood control dam at Rubio Canyon off of north Lake Avenue in Pasadena and Altadena.
What does that mean for your roof as a homeowner?
Here’s a roofing fact for homes from La Canada and Altadena to Arcadia, Rowland Heights and all cities of the San Gabriel Valley.
Rain alone doesn’t damage an older roof.
It’s the combination of rain and sustained summer heat that slowly degrades portions of roofs like the underlayment and loosens the adhesive of shingles. Rains begin to wash away the protective coating of older asphalt shingles and that let’s the summer heat degrade it even more. This process is what causes older asphalt shingle roofs to curl at the edges or buckle.
High winds, especially in the canyons, loosen ridge caps and possibly protective metal flashings.
After the rains this coming weekend, don’t panic if you have an older roof and are wondering if you need a few roof.
