Garvey Roofing is the local contractor to get a roof for all seasons in the San Gabriel Valley.
Let’s look at what that means.
October and November are when we slip from one season into another—and sometimes go back again.
Chilly nights heat up with mostly sunny days and the temperature spikes for a few hours before cooling off. Your roof gets a workout with the expanding and contracting.
Let’s go back a few months into July and August.
Temperatures on your roof soar during the hottest weeks of the year while the sun’s rays gradually weaken seams and slowly degrade your roofing materials. You don’t see the impact taking place but it does over the years and shingles will become brittle while even tile slowly wears down and loses its UV protective coating.
Most of our rain typically falls from mid-December through February and can pour intensely for a few hours. The degrading that took
place in the summer becomes noticeable when protective granules wash off shingles and the tile coating wears down.
The cycle continues into the next summer and winter seasons.
Moisture is one main culprit that impacts your roof.
What else are we known for in the San Gabriel Valley? How about Santa Ana winds and tremors?
November and February or March are often when the Santa Ana winds blow through, especially if you live in an area near canyons or along the slopes of the mountains in places like Altadena and La Verne.
Our cities like Monrovia, Alhambra, and Pasadena have some of their own micro-climates.
Your neighborhood might get more focused wind than other areas or more rain and heat.
How Garvey Roofing protects
Installing a new roof for all seasons means using the best underlayment to repel much of the sun’s rays back into the atmosphere. This reduces the amount of heat that’s transferred into the attic and helps keep the roof’s surface temperature as low as possible.
Maximizing proper ventilation is key so installing an attic fan and low profile vents let the hot air escape as the attic temps climb into the low triple digits on many summer days. Blown-in attic nsulation keeps the heat and cold where they need to be.
This is one of the ways your roof stays healthy over many decades during the summer and winter.
Garvey Roofing offers whole house protection against the elements.
How about painting your exterior?
You want a roofing company to paint your house using the best paint to repel water so your exterior walls don’t soak up moisture.
Gutters channel rain water to where you want it to go so it doesn’t pool around the foundation and eventually seep in and begin to crack.
A Cost-Benefit Analysis
Installing a new roof with the best roofing materials to repel heat and moisture reduces the maintenance you’ll need to keep your overall structure healthy.
Deferred maintenance adds up in years to come with increased costs in labor and materials.
