ROOF MAXX TREATMENT FAQ’s
Q: When should I consider sealing my shingles?
A: There are a few factors as to when you should seal your shingles:
- Age of shingles: A good rule of thumb is 10 years. Starting treatment early can result in doubling your shingles service life while greatly reducing problems during that time.
- Loss of protective costing: The protective coating or “granules” are critical for reflecting the sun’s harmful UV rays that cause shingles to become brittle, crack and leak. Once you start seeing granules in your gutters it’s time to seal. Roof Maxx treatment enhances granule adhesion helping prolong shingle life.
- Shingle staining and streaking (algae growth): Heavy shingle staining is caused by manufacturers’ overuse of inexpensive crushed limestone fillers. Algae, common on northern facing roof slopes, retains moisture for long periods of time. During winter months this moisture expands, breaking granules loose. Roof Maxx has natural fungicides that resist algae growth.
Q: What is the warranty for Roof Maxx treatment?
A: Roof Maxx treatments come with a 5 year pro-rated warranty. Should you need to replace your roof during the warranty period, you will be refunded the unused portion. The warranty is fully transferable—a great selling tool if you’re considering selling your home in the future. For homes on the market—post treatment—we offer a 5 year Roof Certification, giving buyers peace of mind at no additional charge.
Q: What are the weather requirements for sealing my shingles?
A: It must be above 32 degrees for treatment. Because Roof Maxx is a water based, all natural sealer, the roof can be damp. After treatment Roof Maxx quickly penetrates the shingles, typically within 30 minutes.
Q: What happens if it rains soon after Roof Maxx is applied?
A: Once Roof Maxx has penetrated the top layer of the shingles —typically 30 minutes—it will not rise off with rain.
Q: Is Roof Maxx safe for my family, pets, home and landscaping?
A: Yes, Roof Maxx is an all natural sealer formulated by organic chemists—yes, they really do exist! Roof Maxx is 100% safe for people, pets and property.
Q: Will Roof Maxx treatment change the appearance of my shingles?
A: Roof Maxx treatment will bring your shingles back closer to their original color. As a shingle ages, the oils dry out, causing them to become slightly lighter in color. Because Roof Maxx’s organic oils restore and seal your shingles, they will become a shade or two darker—but most people don’t notice the slight change in a appearance.
