“Is the Roof Maxx Treatment safe for my roof?” This is one of the first questions we receive from home and business owners as they investigate our roof-saving product. The short answer? YES! Keep reading to learn more about our product, how it works, why it is safe for your roof, and how you can get this treatment for your roof.
Why Get the Roof Maxx Roof Treatment?
Over time, roof shingles become increasingly vulnerable to weather conditions as the oils inside them dry out. These oils act as a natural protectant, keeping the shingles flexible and allowing them to bend under the weight of snow or the force of the wind. However, as the shingles age and are exposed to the elements, these oils begin to evaporate, causing them to become brittle and lose their ability to withstand harsh weather. Eventually, the shingles can break apart, leading to leaks and damage to the roof structure, costing home and business owners thousands, or tens of thousands, in repairs and replacements. This is why it’s essential to maintain your roof regularly and consider treatments like Roof Maxx to rejuvenate the shingles and extend their lifespan.
How Does the Roof Maxx Treatment Work?
Roof Maxx restores your roof by saturating the brittle areas with millions of microbeads, similar to how moisturizer works on your skin or how pavers re-seal concrete. Roof Maxx does something similar for asphalt roofs, only using a revolutionary new technology that soaks old, brittle shingles with all-natural bio-oil to restore their flexibility and prepare them to better protect your home. By implementing this treatment, home or business owners rejuvenate the shingles, bringing them closer to their original durability and waterproofing level. Additionally, the all-natural oils enhance granule adhesion, reducing the shingles’ vulnerability to damage during high winds.
The Benefits of Utilizing Roof Maxx Treatment
As with many products, shingles aren’t made like they were 30 years ago. Today, most asphalt shingles are about a third lighter than shingles used a few decades back. While this is beneficial in the fact that it is less weight on your roof and it uses fewer materials to make and ship, it also means that it doesn’t last as long. Rather than scraping a mostly good roof – putting tons of weight into landfills prematurely – the Roof Maxx Treatment can extend the life of your roof five years per application, up to three times. In total, you could extend the life of your roof by 15 years!
Of course, this longevity comes with some stipulations. Primarily, your roof needs to be in moderately good shape, completing all required repairs prior to the treatment. The optimal time to treat asphalt shingles with Roof Maxx is when they begin to lose their flexibility and show signs of drying out, usually occurring between 6 and 10 years of age. However, older roofs, ranging from 15 to 20 years and even up to 30 years old, can also benefit from Roof Maxx treatments.
The rate at which asphalt roofs dry out varies based on location and the intensity of the sun’s UV rays. Typically, most roofs are ready for a Roof Maxx treatment by the time they reach ten years of age. However, older roofs can still be restored, and in many cases, we’ve been able to repair and extend the lifespan of older asphalt shingles by restoring their flexibility. The loss of flexibility is the most significant indicator that your shingles are drying out. Signs of this include flaking off of the asphalt granules, black stains and streaks, or cracking, breaking, and curling of the shingles. To determine if your roof is a good candidate for Roof Maxx, we recommend having a local dealer evaluate it.
Why is it Safe for Your Roof?
Yes, it’s a plant-based, scientifically formulated, natural, and safe roof rejuvenating spray treatment developed by Battelle Labs, the world’s largest private research and development firm. Roof Maxx has been certified as a USDA BioPreferred product and is safe for people, pets, property, and the environment.
One of the safety benefits of the product is that it will be absorbed entirely within 30 minutes, making it impervious to rain. Moreover, the non-flammable product poses no fire hazard or risk of flames spreading.
Plus, while Roof Maxx easily adheres to and stays on asphalt shingles, it can be rinsed off any other surface with a garden hose.
