Did you ever think of how many different types of homes are in the San Gabriel Valley?

Garvey Roofing has roofed all those types of homes—from the most historic buildings to the most modern residences and to commercial buildings with internal drains.
Thomas Garvey’s team has also re-roofed homes in Heritage Square, the collection of historic homes north of downtown LA and just off the 110 freeway.

Your goals play an important role in answering questions like, “Do I need a new roof or roof repair?”
Thomas Garvey will assess the current condition of your roof. There are simple ways you can do this, too, like checking for shingles that are curled at the edges and checking gutters for granules that wash in.
How long do you plan on living in your home or owning your commercial building?
If you have a slight leak and you only plan to stay a few more years before selling then you can likely get a roof repaired to stop the leak, depending on the location and severity. It’s important to know the health of the decking. The softer the decking is the more likely it needs replaced, too.
If you plan on staying in your home or owning your building for the next decade or longer, then getting a new roof installed with the newest roofing materials has important benefits like:
- Repelling the sun’s most harmful rays
- Reducing utility bills
- Improving the look of your exterior and improving the comfort of your interior
A new roof will make your home energy-efficient and more environmentally friendly.
