Our roofs are one of the essential components of the safety and wellbeing of our homes, protecting us from the elements and dangers of the outside world. However, these home hats are expensive, and when it comes time to get them worked on, homeowners cringe at the thought of their poor wallets. Fortunately, most roofs have the capacity of roof restoration, a far cheaper and faster method to increase the longevity of the roof compared to a traditional roof replacement. Today, we dive into knowing if your roof can be restored, the most cost-effective method for restoration, how the process works, and whom you can call it to get started!
How to Know If a Roof Can Be Restored
Most roofs have the potential to be restored if they haven’t passed the point of no return or have sustained heavy damage. Of course, if your roof was shattered by a falling tree or suffered a massive water leak, you will likely need a roof replacement since there will be extensive construction and repair required to occur before the shingles can be addressed.
However, if your roof has only minor repairs or is around 10 to 20 years old, a roof restoration is an excellent method to add years of life onto your roof at a fraction of the cost of a total replacement. If you are unsure whether your roof would be eligible for restoration, a restoration specialist can perform a free inspection to determine that answer.
The Most Cost-Effective Method for Roof Restoration
The most cost-effective method for roof restoration is the Roof Maxx® treatment. 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.
The Roof Maxx® treatment is the most cost-effective method for roof restoration due to its budget-friendly, time-effective nature. First, unlike roof replacements which can cost tens of thousands of dollars, roof restoration typically costs just 15-20% of that! Making it a far more budget-friendly option!
Second, a roof restoration is a far less time intensive than a roof replacement. For one, it can take months to get a company to work on your roof, often compounding whatever problems you may face. Then, the roof removal and replacement process can take anywhere from 3 days to a week or longer to complete. That is a heavy time expense that can be challenging for homeowners who must take time off work to aid workers or must evacuate children or pets from the house as they work.
Third, if you are responsible for hauling off the debris from a roof replacement, it could cost you hundreds if not thousands of dollars on top of the wasteful impact on the environment.
On the other hand, roof restoration teams are able to help their clients faster, with more scheduling availability due to the quick process. Roof Maxx® treatment takes around two hours to apply and fully sets within 72 hours! Plus, with roof restoration, there is far less debris and waste to remove, and the team will take care of it for you.
How Does a Roof Restoration Work?
Step #1: Free Detailed Roof Inspection
The first step of a roof restoration process is checking to see if the Roof Maxx® treatment is the right option for your roof. Your inspectors will take pictures of potential concerns and provide detailed inspection notes and solutions. If your roof is not eligible, your inspector will provide alternative solutions and give you recommendations on the next steps of your journey.
Step #2: Roof Maintenance and Repair
Even if your home passes the inspection, roofs rarely escape without a few minor repair requirements. You only want to apply a treatment if you address such concerns because it may mitigate the whole process if you don’t. Roof repair typically addresses missing shingles, exposed nails, failed or worn-out gaskets, and other minor issues to ensure the application of the treatment is long-lasting and effective.
Step #3: Application of the Roof Maxx® Treatment
Similar to the soy technology used in Good Year tires, Roof Maxx® is a bio-solution product created in coordination with the Ohio Soybean Council. The Ohio State University conducted a study combined 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.
The application process takes only a couple of hours, and it is clean and 100% safe for the surrounding environment. Within 72 hours of the application, your roof’s flexibility and waterproofing protection will be restored.
