Everyone likes a little extra, a bonus, an unexpected deal. When you have your local, friendly roofing contractor apply Roof Maxx to your South California home, you get benefits for your home, sure, but you also get a little something extra in your wallet.
What is Roof Maxx?
Roof Maxx is a new spray coating that uses 100 percent natural, plant-based biological oil to restore flexibility to your home’s fiberglass-asphalt shingle roof. It can instantly add five years of life to a roof.
As asphalt shingles age, they give off the very chemicals that comprise them. The asphalt is volatile, so day by day it evaporates into the atmosphere, leaving behind harder, brittle shingles.
Roof Maxx derives from soybean oil (soy methyl esters — you cannot just pour grocery store soybean oil on your roof). With applications every five years, Roof Maxx can add up to 15 years of life to your South California home’s asphalt roof.
It can make a difference for roofs as young as six to eight years old, depending on the weather conditions in a given area. Roof Maxx is ideal for roofs 15 to 20 years old.
Benefits of Roof Maxx For Your Home
Your South California home’s roof is an integrated system from your fiberglass-asphalt shingles down to your gutters and downspouts. The shingles are covered in small granules, chemically adhered to a sticky asphalt base.
With Roof Maxx, your local roofer can apply a coating of this penetrating oil mix to your existing shingle roof and rejuvenate your roof within a few hours. No need for costly reroofing, extensive repairs, or noisy construction.
Eight distinct benefits you gain immediately from one application of Roof Maxx include:
1 — Improved Flexibility
Your home’s shingles are once again able to move with the wind and rain without breaking. Instead of being brittle and hard, your shingles have the flexibility and suppleness they had when new.
2 — Increased Granule Adhesion
Roof Maxx helps adhere the granules of your shingles to the asphalt layer underneath them. This helps prevent the continuous washout of granules into your gutters, down your downspouts, and out onto your lawn.
3 — Shingle Permeability
With the soy methyl esters sprayed onto your ridge shingles, field shingles, valleys, and roof hips, your shingles soak up the lift-restoring oils. The coating restores your shingles nearly to the condition of brand new shingles.
4 — Neutral to Flames
People searching out Roof Maxx Pros and Cons often latch onto the idea of an oil being sprayed on your roof. Surely, they think, that increases your South California home’s fire risk?
While understandable, such thinking is wrong. Roof Maxx does not increase fire risk or promote the spread of flames. Your shingles’ fire rating, which is typically Class A (the highest rating) is unaffected by the restorative properties of Roof Maxx.
5 — Fast Work
Roof Maxx goes on in a matter of hours, saving you the noise, scheduling issues, and protracted work sessions which come from a roof replacement. If you hear anything, it is the quiet spray from the applicator, and perhaps the sound of a couple of technicians on your shingle roof.
6 — Lower Costs than a New Roof
A new roof costs a lot, no matter the type of home or kind of roofing material. Home Advisor pegs the typical cost of a new shingle roof in a range from $5,348 – $10,686.
One application of Roof Maxx costs less than 25 percent of typical new roof replacement costs. With a five-year life span, the investment pays for itself by saving you the tremendous costs in time, money, and worry a new roof entails:
- Scheduling headaches and delays
- Tear-off and disposal fees
- New material charges
- Labor charges
- Construction noise and debris
Three applications of Roof Maxx will easily add 15 years or more to an existing roof for only 75 percent of the cost of a new roof. (When done every five years.)
7 — Add Years to Your Roof
With Roof Maxx, you postpone the inevitable roof replacement. This gives you years to save for a new roof instead of going into debt to pay for it. How good is Roof Maxx? It may seem like only a little spray coating, but Roof Maxx gives you power over your home’s roof replacement timeline: you decide when you can afford to replace your roof, not a contractor, bank, or the roof itself.
8 — Mother Earth
Let’s not overlook an eighth bonus benefit of Roof Maxx. Shingle roofs are environmentally “iffy.” Roof Maxx helps reduce landfill and pollution by nearly doubling the useful life of a shingle roof. The solution itself is also environmentally friendly and will not harm your kids, pets, landscaping, or the environment.
