Here’s why Garvey Roofing will also paint your house.
Rain is good, as we know for the drought-prone cities of the San Gabriel Valley. But too much rain in the wrong places can damage your home’s interior and your exterior walls. Local roofing contractor Garvey Roofing has a few ways to keep your home and stucco free from the ruins of too much rain.
Read on and think about a water-proofer painting your home and installing or repairing your roof.
Waterproofing Your Roof
The roof is the first defense against too much summer sun heating up the interior of your house and it protects against the winter rains leaving too much moisture in the attic and damaging your exterior walls.
Waterproofing your roof begins with installing a complete roofing system that includes decking, and underlayment that protects against leaking for decades to come and reflects the most harmful rays of the summer sun back into the atmosphere.
Wait! What does summer sun have to do with winter rains?
Too much heat gradually weakens adhesion on the shingles and moisture eventually seeps in so reducing the surface temperature of the roof protects the roof during winter time. This is what Thomas Garvey means when he says he installs roofs for all seasons.
Ventilating Your Attic
Prevent heat from building up in your attic by installing fans that kick on in hot weather and yet are sealed well so rain doesn’t cause mold. The ventilation and attic insulation keeps the interior of your home temperate and energy efficient.
Installing Your Gutters
Gutters help channel rains away from your home’s foundation and can also reduce the amount of water that splashes on the exterior stucco and wooden walls. This prevents flaking and again helps your home function in an energy efficient way.
“A lot of stucco houses are damaged on the lower half of their house because water is pouring off the roof and splashing constantly on the wall from not having gutters,” says Thomas.
He says the problem can be made worse by stucco going into the dirt line and sucking water up on the lower two to three feet of a home.”
Painting Your House
“When you hire us to paint your house, we pay attention to all the places where rain can possibly seep into your home so we seal around all the windows and foundation as part of painting your home,” says Thomas, who’s also a student of building science.
Your home is one unit affected by the quality of your roof, windows, flow of air, and even the paint. It’s not just cosmetic but adds another layer of protection and adds quality to your home.
