Asphalt is the most commonly used type of shingle in the United States, but contrary to what you might think, asphalt shingles are not made entirely of asphalt. While they both contain asphalt material, there are two common types of shingles: organic and fiberglass.
Organic shingles are usually made from a combination of recycled cellulose and wood fiber and then saturated with asphalt. Fiberglass roof shingles consist of a fiberglass mat covered in asphalt. Both types of shingles are topped with ceramic or mineral granules to help block UV rays.
How asphalt shingles age and what that does to your roof.
The asphalt material in roof shingles supplies waterproofing and maintains the strength of the shingles. Since asphalt is derived from petroleum, it contains oils that dry out as the shingles age.
Your roof shingles are also subjected to various weather conditions like hail, wind, rain and sun that cause the asphalt in the shingles to dry out, crack, and curl. This leads to the loss of granular coating from the shingles, which removes UV protection and further accelerates shingle damage.
Unfortunately, consumers often go to the expense of replacing their asphalt shingle roof when they simply could preserve it for a lot less money.
Don’t replace your roof, preserve it!
Using their decades of industry knowledge and experience, the Feazel brothers have created a proprietary roof preservation process. This procedure can be performed on over 95% of older roofs, extending service life by up to 15 years.
This revolutionary procedure features a patented organic oil formula that completely re-saturates dried out and leaky roofing shingles. This mixture of natural oils adds years of life to the average asphalt roof at a much lower cost than replacement.
The roof preservation process is less expensive than replacing an entire roof and also protects an existing investment.
Not having to replace your roof not only saves you money, but it helps keep asphalt shingles from being dumped into landfills. This green roofing solution is great for both homeowners and the environment!
Our roof preservation process
Before preserving your roof with the application of our patented shingle reviving organic oils, we thoroughly inspect, repair and clean your roof. Here are more details about the process we use:
Our highly trained contractors can spot problems that many homeowners overlook. During our free roof inspection one of our contractors will closely examine the roof structure including the condition of the siding, gutters, soffit and fascia.
Our technician will also check the structure of the roof looking for buckling, curling and missing shingles; loose flashing around chimneys, vents and pipes; cracking or broken rubber gaskets and loose nails and screws.
Our roof preservation professional ensures that your roof is watertight by repairing or replacing damaged and missing shingles, painting and sealing existing flashings and installing new rubber gaskets and grommet screws.
- Our roof restoration specialist will perform the following tasks to ensure a watertight roof.
- Seal all flashings with a high a performance tripolymer sealant.
- Repair/replace damaged or missing shingles.
- Paint rusted flashings to eliminate further corrosion.
- Install new rubber gaskets on plumbing boot flashings.
- Install rubber grommet screws in all base flashings.
Not only will we repair your roof, we’ll clean it as well. Why? Because cleaning is a critical step for allowing proper penetration of our shingle restoring organic oils.
Our soft wash process uses zero pressure and is the approved cleaning method of shingle manufacturers. We use our soft wash process to remove black stains and streaks, mold, algae and dirt off of the roof’s surface, returning your shingles to their original luster. This cleaning process also prepares your asphalt roof to receive our rejuvenating oil formula.
The application of our shingle-reviving organic oils preserves the flexibility and water-shedding ability of your shingles. These oils help restore shingle pliability and extend the life of your roof.
Unlike other roof coatings which only reach the top shingle layer, our organic oil formula penetrates the entire shingle to restore your roof to like-new condition. These oils are gentle and effective without changing the color or appearance of your roof.
Not only do these natural oils help restore your roof, but they won’t harm people, pets or property.
Best of all, every roof preservation is backed by a transferable leak-free warranty, which is a huge benefit if you are considering selling your home in the future!
