Your roof is one of the most essential parts of your home, protecting you and your family from a barrage of elements for decades on end. However, over time, even the strongest roofs can show signs of wear and tear, such as when the shingles start cracking, breaking, and losing flexibility. Fortunately, there is a solution to help extend the life of your roof and save you money in the long run. Roof Maxx offers a revolutionary roof treatment that can restore the flexibility of your asphalt shingles and add up to 5 years of life to your roof. But when is the best time to treat your roof with Roof Maxx? Let’s explore.
When Should I Treat My Roof with the Roof Maxx Roof Treatment?
If you’re wondering when the best time to treat your roof with Roof Maxx roof rejuvenation treatment is, the answer depends on a few factors.
The ideal time to treat your asphalt shingles is when they start to show signs of drying out and losing their flexibility. On average, the typical asphalt roof will last between 15-20 years. Your roof typically shows signs of aging when your roof is between 6 and 10 years old. For those living in the north, like us, you will likely be on the later end of that estimate.
Just because that is the average, it doesn’t mean that some roofs can’t be treated at a later age. It greatly depends on the individual roof, and we have even been able to treat roofs up to 30 years old. The rate at which your asphalt roof dries out and becomes brittle depends on several factors, including the intensity of the sun’s UV rays in your area and the region you live in. In some cases, older roofs may have had a few repairs done before being treated with Roof Maxx, and the treatment was still able to restore their flexibility and extend their life.
The most significant sign to look for is a loss of flexibility in your roof shingles. You can tell if your shingles are drying out by looking for asphalt granules, the small, sand-like pebbles that stick together when the shingles’ natural oils are still intact. Once those oils dry out with age, the granules begin flaking off, and you may see them in your gutters, downspouts, etc. Other signs that your roof is drying out include black stains and streaks or shingles cracking, breaking, and curling. If you are unsure what that looks like, or you are unwilling or unable to get up to check your roof, we recommend scheduling an annual roof inspection to monitor your roof’s health.
Could Roof Maxx Make an Asphalt Roof Last Forever?
It’s a common question: can Roof Maxx make an asphalt roof last forever? While it would be awesome if we could apply it over and over again for all of time, the short answer is no; nothing lasts forever. Even with proper maintenance, an asphalt roof will eventually need to be replaced. However, Roof Maxx can help extend its life for additional years.
Roof Maxx has been proven to add an average of 15 years of life to an asphalt roof through testing and research done at The Ohio State University. This means that with Roof Maxx’s revolutionary roof treatment, you can significantly extend the life of your roof and save money in the long run.
How does this work? The Roof Maxx Roof Treatment has proven to add five years of life per application to an intact asphalt roof. An intact roof means any structural issues have been repaired and everything is in good condition before applying the Roof Maxx treatment. Roofs go through a lot of wear and tear, especially with exposure to the elements, such as rain, wind, snow, and sleet.
Roof Maxx treatments come with a five-year transferable warranty, and repeating treatments every five years can extend your roof’s life by up to 15 years. It’s important to note that every roof differs, and the results may vary based on several factors. Nonetheless, Roof Maxx offers a cost-effective solution to extend the life of your roof and protect your home for years to come. While we can’t promise your roof will last forever, it’s possible that we could find out that even longer than 15 years is possible in the future.
How Does the Roof Maxx Treatment Last That Long?
Roof Maxx is a product that uses plant-based, food-grade, non-toxic oil to replace lost oil in shingles. The oil is fused into micro-beads that penetrate shingles to give them back their flexibility, durability, and waterproofing abilities. The spray is made from all-natural, food-based products and helps reduce the environmental footprint. Roof Maxx replaces petrochemical oils found in asphalt shingles that have evaporated with an all-natural bio-friendly oil to give shingles the flexibility and durability needed to withstand the elements.
