What is your home’s shingle roof made of? You say shingles, sure, but what is a shingle made of? For most of America’s residential roofs, a shingle is made from three things: petrochemicals, granules, and fiberglass. Protect your investment and extend the life of your Canton-area home’s roof with Roof Maxx

What a Piece of Work is a Shingle!

Modern shingles are marvelous things. They combine water resistance, toughness, and durability. One of the three main components of shingles is the asphalt, a petrochemical. That helps keep the shingle water-resistant and flexible.

Unfortunately, petrochemicals evaporate over time. This causes an old shingle to lose flexibility, ability to shed water, and ability to bounce back when struck by hail or tree branches. As marvelous a piece of engineering as a fiberglass-asphalt shingle is, it is no match for Father Time. 

Roof Maxx Rescue

Since petrochemicals are the vital part of the shingle and they evaporate into thin air over time, it follows that replenishing those chemicals will return a shingle to flexibility and water resistance. Think of dry skin — a little lotion revitalizes it quickly. 

Roof Maxx is a spray coating made from soybean oil that replaces lost petrochemicals in a safe, environmentally friendly way. It soaks right into the shingle, restoring resilience and adding years of useful life to your roof. 

Professional Application

Just as we trust professional beauticians and dermatologists for treating our hair, skin, and nails, so too should you trust a professional roofer with the application of Roof Maxx. A professional application takes as little as a few hours, soaks in within half an hour, and is completely ready for rough weather within a day. 

Roof Maxx, when professionally sprayed on in warm spring or summer weather, instantly starts to renew your fiberglass asphalt shingles. It prepares them for the tough Canton winters ahead. The product can even be sprayed on into the autumn months. 

Some homeowners worry about the cure time. What if a summer rain whips up? The soybean oil-based spray soaks in immediately, which means all a roofer needs is a few hours of clear weather to ensure years of restored beauty and water resistance. 

Enjoy a roof with strong granule adhesion, increased water resistance, and tougher shingles. Start with a call to Victors Roofing to learn more about having Roof Maxx applied to your fiberglass-asphalt shingle roof. Contact us today to hear more about this amazing, money-saving product!
