We get a lot of questions about Roof Maxx, an innovative, spray-on product designed to extend the lifespan of asphalt shingles. What is Roof Maxx? Does Roof Maxx really work? We’re here to offer up some answers.
How Roof Maxx Works
Your roof can and should last a long time, but asphalt shingles begin to dry out after several years. The issue is the oil which keeps them flexible dries out, making them brittle and more susceptible to cracks. As this happens, the embedded granules become loose and fall off, making the shingles weaker. You’ll know it’s happening when you start to see what looks like coarse gravel in your gutters.
Roof Maxx works by essentially restoring the oil in your shingles. The key ingredient on Roof Maxx is its soy methyl ester, a 100% plant-based oil which revitalizes aging shingles. Once it soaks in, Roof Maxx helps your shingles shed water, keeps the asphalt granules in place, and makes shingles less brittle and prone to breaking.
Benefits to Your Roof
Allowing shingles to wear out and become less effective allows further damage to your entire roof. This can lead to a potentially costly roof replacement further down the road. By applying Roof Maxx, you can make your roof last longer and reduce the likelihood that it will need to be replaced in the near future.
Roof Maxx extends the lifespan of your roof by restoring the shingles and making them last longer. Shingles start showing signs of aging at 5 to 10 years, which is the perfect time to apply Roof Maxx.
How We Apply Roof Maxx
For a team of experienced roofing experts, applying Roof Maxx couldn’t be simpler. Once we’re up on your roof—a place only a qualified professional should ever be—we spray-apply Roof Maxx using specialized equipment. We then allow 30 minutes to an hour for the oils to absorb into the shingles (the exact amount of time depends on the temperature). After that, you’re good to go! Roof Maxx can be reapplied every five years and up to three times – giving your roof an extended 15 years of life!
