Without a doubt! Roof Maxx employs groundbreaking technology that drenches aging and fragile shingles with millions of all-natural bio-oil microbeads, boosting their suppleness and enhancing their ability to shield a home. In reality, just one application of Roof Maxx can extend the lifespan of an asphalt roof by five years, and with repeated applications every five years, it can add up to 15 years.
Replacing an entire roof is a costly endeavor for homeowners. Conversely, an asphalt shingle treatment from Roof Maxx can substantially reduce the expenses associated with extending the lifespan of your roof. A Roof Maxx treatment is a fraction of the cost of a roof replacement. This is especially significant given that the cost of replacing a roof has increased by 25% to 30% in the past 2 years due to Covid-19, resulting in substantial savings.
For instance, the national average expense for a quality roofing system is over $13,000, whereas a Roof Maxx treatment costs under $3,000. However, the cost of roofing, whether for replacement or Roof Maxx, is determined by the size, complexity, and accessibility of your roof.
Compared to a complete roof replacement, a Roof Maxx treatment can be completed in a fraction of the time. Additionally, it spares you the disturbance and mess associated with a roof replacement. Furthermore, Roof Maxx is an all-natural treatment that is harmless to your home, family, and pets.
Another consideration is whether your roof requires additional tune-ups or preparations before we apply Roof Maxx. This could entail replacing plumbing boots, caulking around flashing, or repairing nail pops.
Overall, a Roof Maxx treatment will result in significant cost savings and fewer hassles. Contact us today for more information and how Roof Maxx can enhance your home.
You know how people have their decks or driveways treated when they see wear and tear and want to add life to their investment? Roof Maxx does something similar for asphalt roofs, only using a revolutionary new technology that soaks old, brittle shingles with millions of micro-beads of all-natural bio-oil to restore their flexibility and prepare them to better protect your home. One Roof Maxx application is guaranteed to add five years of life to an asphalt roof. And with repeat applications every five years, you can add up to 15 years of life to your asphalt roof.
The founders of Roof Maxx were professional roofers for over 30 years before starting Roof Maxx. Throughout their careers, they noticed a decline in the quality of asphalt shingles that contributed to roofs lasting less time than they used to. In fact, today’s shingles are about a third lighter than they were just a few decades ago. This is because they include less asphalt, which is where they get the oil that keeps them pliable. So newer shingles are drying out, cracking and breaking apart sooner than they used to.
Most roofs built in recent decades last 15-20 years, with roofs in less sunny climates tending to last slightly longer due to less UV exposure. The weather, the manufacturer and other factors play a part in each roof’s lifetime. So, unfortunately, there’s just no way to truly guess how long a roof will last. (Believe us, we’ve tried.)
If your asphalt roof is more than 6-8 years old in southern climates and more than 8-10 years old in northern climates, we suggest contacting a local Roof Maxx dealer for an assessment. The dealer can estimate how much life is left in your roof and whether it’s the right time to apply Roof Maxx to add five years of life to it right away. However, don’t worry if your roof is older than that. While older roofs may require a few repairs before we can treat them, we often apply Roof Maxx to roofs around 15-20 years old, and have even been able to save some as old as 30.
The best time to treat asphalt shingles with Roof Maxx is when the roof tiles start to show signs of drying out and losing their flexibility. This usually happens when the roof is between 6 and 10 years old. However, sometimes we treat roofs that are 15 to 20 years old and have even been able to save roofs up to 30 years old.
Asphalt roofs begin drying out and becoming brittle at different rates, depending on your region and the intensity of the sun’s UV rays in your area. Most roofs are ready for a Roof Maxx treatment by the time they are 10 years old. But don’t worry if your roof is older than that and hasn’t yet been treated. When we come across older roofs, it isn’t uncommon for them to have had a few repairs done before we’ve been called in to treat them. In many cases, we’ve been able to repair and extend the life of older asphalt roof shingles by restoring their flexibility.
The biggest sign to look for is a loss of flexibility in the roof shingles. So, how do you know if your shingles are drying out and losing their flexibility?
Asphalt shingles contain asphalt granules, which are the small, sand-like pebbles that stick together when the shingles’ natural oils are still intact. But once those oils start to dry out with age, the granules begin flaking off and you may see them in your gutters, downspouts, etc. Other signs your roof is drying out include black stains and streaks or shingles cracking, breaking, and curling. Each roof is different, so we recommend having a local dealer evaluate whether yours is a good candidate for Roof Maxx.

For asphalt roofs, Roof Maxx is a quick, easy and affordable alternative to a potentially complicated, expensive and life-disrupting roof replacement. It’s a natural oil that can extend the life of an asphalt roof by five years at a time, ideally starting when a roof is around 6-10 years old, depending on the region.
Here’s why: In southern climates where there’s more UV exposure, Roof Maxx can start extending the life of a roof around 6-8 years old. In northern climates it’s closer to 8-10 years old. But don’t worry if your roof is older than that. While older roofs may require a few repairs before we can treat them, we often apply Roof Maxx to roofs around 15-20 years old, and have even been able to save some as old as 30.
Roof Maxx is environmentally friendly and safe for people, pets, plants and the environment. And it helps keep roofs intact and asphalt shingles out of landfills for as long as possible.
