Frequently Asked Questions

When the shingles’ protective top layer of granule coating begins shedding off into the gutters. This coating functions as a sort of “sunscreen” for your shingles. The oil contained within the shingles is essential for maintaining this coating, but as it dries out, the shingles will start to become brittle and crack.

Black stains and streaks on the shingles is another sign that the roof is aging. Most roofs with staining are shedding the protective top coating to varying degrees. Note: Staining does not harm the roof and is only an aesthetic issue.

Yes, this roof treatment 100% safe for people, pets, property, and the environment, because it’s an all-natural food-grade product. Any overspray is rinsed away with a hose or rain.

Roof Maxx’s sole purpose is to maintain your shingles’ flexibility, which is necessary to facilitate daily expansion and contraction. This is not a guarantee against leaks or any other roof related damages.While many factors can affect how long shingles will last (such as proper installation or attic ventilation), this limited warranty covers against loss of the shingles’ flexibility, the leading cause of roof failure. Properly applied, this roof treatment is formulated to keep asphalt shingles flexible for a period of five years. Should they lose their flexibility during the five year limited warranty period, Roof Maxx Technologies, LLC will supply the property owner with the product on a pro-rated basis, over 60 months, to re-treat the shingles. The product can be shipped directly to the property owner or through their Authorized Roof Maxx Dealer. In either case, Roof Maxx Technologies, LLC is not responsible for the cost of shipping.

Research conducted by Ohio State University found:

The Roof Maxx® treatment seeps into dried out shingles and rehydrates the asphalt with essential oil beads. This process restores flexibility so the shingle can contract and expand without breaking while reactivating the seal tabs on the shingles helping to extend the waterproofing protection. Similar to the soy technology used in Good Year tires, Roof Maxx® is a bio-solution product that was created in coordination with the Ohio Soybean Council. The Ohio State University conducted a study combining with research from Battelle Memorial Institute and PRI Construction Materials Technology and found that Roof Maxx® treated shingles restored flexibility, durability, and permeability values close to that of a brand new shingle.

“Roof Maxx restored the flexibility of 17-year old roof shingles, successfully passing the same materials testing required for new roof shingles.”
