Preparing for Extreme Weather: How Roof Restoration Can Safeguard Tri-Cities Homes

If you are a resident of the Tri-Cities, you know that our lovely area is known for its vibrant communities and scenic landscapes. On the other hand, we also experience our fair share of severe weather challenges. Homeowners here are all too familiar with a range of extreme weather conditions, from thunderstorms rumbling across the sky to the fierce high winds that sweep through the region. Our area is not just limited to these; ice storms can coat everything in a treacherous layer of ice, while unexpected flooding and hail add to the list of weather adversities. Even tornadoes, though rare, have been known to make their presence felt. Such a diverse array of extreme weather puts a considerable strain on homes, particularly roofing structures. Today, we will guide you on Tri-Cities roof protection during extreme weather, a combination of roof restoration and our RoofMaxx treatment. 

The Impact of Extreme Weather on Homes

As we mentioned, the Tri-Cities region can face a myriad of weather conditions, which, in turn, can impact our home’s roof. Here is a quick rundown of how different conditions can affect your roof. 

Rain Damage:

Regular bouts of heavy rainfall can lead to water damage over time. The risk escalates if your roof maintenance has been neglected or if you have missing shingles creating gateways for water damage.

Hail Damage:

Hailstorms are unpredictable, and their impact on roofs can be severe as large, heavy bouts of hail can break or knock shingles right off the roof. Post-hailstorm, it’s wise to get a roof inspection to assess any potential damage, as it’s often not easily visible from the ground.

Snow Damage:

The accumulation of snow adds substantial weight to your roof, which can be problematic, particularly if your roof is already compromised. The thaw-freeze cycle that follows can lead to ice dams and icicle formation, adding on top of the stress to the roof.

Wind Damage:

Strong winds are particularly harsh on roofs, often tearing off shingles and loosening gutters. In extreme cases, like a rare tornado, they can even challenge the structural integrity of your roof.

Shrubbery Damage:

While it may not be obvious, in stormy conditions, flying debris, including branches and shrubbery, can cause significant damage to your roof through impact or by dragging across the shingles.

Extreme Temperature Damage:

While cold weather brings its own set of challenges with snow and ice, extreme heat is equally damaging. Roofs in areas with high temperatures can suffer from heat-related wear and tear, affecting their longevity and performance. While this won’t affect us until summer, we still wanted to mention it!

With these threats in mind, you can adequately take on Tri-Cities roof protection techniques with the RoofMaxx treatment. 

Roof Restoration: Strengthening Against the Elements with the RoofMaxx Treatment

The Tri-Cities faces a long winter season, so it is best to battle against extreme weather before it takes its toll. Our roof restoration treatment is designed to rejuvenate and strengthen your roof, making it more resilient to the diverse weather challenges heading its way. By penetrating deep into one’s shingles and revitalizing them to their former glory, RoofMaxx ensures that your roof has enhanced protection to withstand rain, hail, snow, wind, and extreme temperatures. 

How Does the RoofMaxx Treatment Work?

The RoofMaxx treatment is a groundbreaking approach to roof restoration, designed to rejuvenate your home’s shingles significantly. First, the treatment works by penetrating dry shingles and rehydrating the asphalt. This is achieved through essential oil beads, which are absorbed into the shingles, restoring their natural flexibility. Then, this flexibility allows shingles to contract and expand in response to temperature changes without breaking. Additionally, the treatment helps reactivate the seal tabs on the shingles, thereby extending their waterproofing capabilities.

How does it do it? This innovative bio-solution technology incorporates soy-based technology similar to that used in Goodyear tires. This environmentally friendly approach has been developed in collaboration with the Ohio Soybean Council, and the effectiveness of RoofMaxx has been validated through research conducted by The Ohio State University, Battelle Memorial Institute, and PRI Construction Materials Technology. Studies have shown that shingles treated with RoofMaxx regain flexibility, durability, and permeability that are nearly equivalent to new shingles.

What Does the RoofMaxx Treatment Process Look Like? 

Restoring your roof with RoofMaxx is quick, convenient, and thorough, ensuring maximum protection for your home. Here’s how it works:

Initial Inspection:

First, a detailed assessment of your roof is conducted. This step is crucial to identify any existing damage or weak spots that need attention before the treatment.

Preparation and Repair:

Any issues found during the inspection are addressed. We will fully seal any exposed or loose nails, repair cracked and torn shingles, seal storm and HVAC collars, install new boot gaskets, and reseal flashings. However, if you have extensive repairs, you may need to schedule and complete roof repair prior to the application of the treatment. This step ensures that the roof is in the best possible condition for the RoofMaxx treatment.

Applying RoofMaxx:

The process of applying the RoofMaxx treatment involves spraying our innovative solution onto your roof. Depending on your roof size, it can take anywhere from 30 minutes to a couple of hours.

Final Inspection and Cleanup:

After the treatment has dried, a final inspection is carried out to ensure the quality and effectiveness of the work. Cleanup is done, leaving your property as neat as we found it.

Recognizing the Need for Roof Restoration and Advantages of RoofMaxx Treatment

Knowing when it comes time for roof restoration is vital to ensuring you get the best Tri-Cities roof protection options. Most asphalt roofs show some signs of drying out between 6 and 10 years of age, depending on the region and intensity of the sun’s UV rays. We recommend looking for signs like curled, cracked, or missing shingles and don’t overlook granule loss. To make it easy, regular inspections and maintenance play a critical role in the early detection and prevention of major issues.
