Commercial building owners have long known a secret — withheld from residential homeowners until now — which has saved them thousands of dollars every year. The secret to extending the life of an old roof is to replenish and protect the outer roofing layer. For residential homeowners, this is almost always fiberglass-asphalt shingles, the single most popular roofing material in America. With an innovative product, Roof Maxx, Canton-area homeowners can now enjoy the same money-saving benefits commercial building owners have enjoyed for decades.
How Shingles Age
Fiberglass-asphalt shingles are made with petrochemicals, fiberglass, and additives such as colored granules. The petrochemicals are volatile; that is, they evaporate over time.
As shingles age, they become less flexible, less water resistant, and more brittle. They craze, crack, cup, and warp. A stray falling branch that your roof would have shrugged off when new now leaves a dent, a split, or a broken shingle.
What is Roof Maxx?
Roof Maxx is a spray coating which restores shingles’ flexibility and water resistance. Made from soybean oil, Roof Maxx soaks into shingles much like lotion soaks into tired, dry skin. It rejuvenates your shingles, providing the necessary oils to extend the life of your roof.
Benefits of Roof Maxx
Imagine you pay $20,000 for a new fiberglass-asphalt shingle roof with the expectation it will last 20 years. If Roof Maxx adds just 10 years to your roof’s life, your per-year costs drop from $1,000 a year to only $666.67.
Five specific benefits of Roof Maxx are:
- Flexible shingles
- Increased Granule adhesion
- Shingle permeability
- Hail resistance
- Neutral to flames
With Canton’s biting cold and above-average snows, your home’s roof is deteriorating faster than most. Roof Maxx can help prevent water infiltration, extend the life of your roof, and bring you peace of mind.
Applying Roof Maxx
Roof Maxx is sprayed on by skilled roofing technicians. The soy methyl ester soaks into the shingles within 30 minutes, and within a day, the fiberglass-asphalt shingles are again flexible, resilient, and water resistant. One trained roofer can cover an entire roof in just a few hours, and Roof Maxx goes to work immediately to add years of life to your home’s roof.
