What product costs only a fraction of what a new roof costs, but takes only hours to apply? Roof Maxx, the spray-on residential version of a long-known commercial roofing secret. With Roof Maxx, Michigan homeowners have an alternative to the expense and inconvenience of roof replacement.
Save Time and Money
Roof Maxx is a spray-on application made from soybean oil that mimics the sprayed coatings used by commercial roofers. Roof Maxx, like heavy-duty protective sprays for flat roofs, revitalizes shingles and adds years of life to aging roofs.
What to Watch For
As your fiberglass-asphalt shingle roof ages, it loses the volatile oils in the petrochemicals that make up the asphalt component. This aging makes your shingles less water-resistant, more brittle, and more prone to damage from hail and blunt force impacts (tree branches, for example).
Signs your roof needs a Roof Maxx application include:
- Cupped, cracked, curled or split shingles — No matter the chronological age of your roof, advanced wear from ultraviolet light, heat or heavy precipitation can cause shingles to deteriorate
- Chronological age — If your roof is six to 10 years old, Roof Maxx will rejuvenate the shingles
- Increased granule loss from poor adhesion — Check your gutters for granules deposited by rain
- Streaks, discoloration or stains — Your shingles have lost their protective top coating
Roof Maxx or Replace?
If your “20-year” shingle roof looks old, worn out or discolored after only six to 10 years, do not spend money on a new roof. Have your local, dependable roofer assess your roof to see if Roof Maxx makes more economic sense.
An application of Roof Maxx is far less expensive than a brand new shingle roof. Repeated applications every five to eight years can extend the life of your roof by many years, helping you save money.
Roof Maxx is a soy-based product. It is 100 percent safe for pets and children during the application, and it soaks in quickly (usually within 30 minutes). Any overspray is harmless; it can be rinsed away with a hose or light rain. Professional roofers know how to carefully control the spray during application.
Roof Maxx replaces the same essential oils in aging shingles but uses food-grade soybean oil. To learn more about Roof Maxx, please contact us at Victors Roofing. We are authorized to offer this economical alternative to reroofing and can back the work with a five-year warranty.
