Q: When should I consider treating 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 dry out, 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: How much does Roof Maxx treatment cost on average?
A: The average size home (25 roofing squares)—with shingles that aren’t in need of repairs—can be treated for $1775.
Q: Are there any special preparations I need to make before treatment?
A: Not at all. You do not need to do anything prior to treatment. Roof Maxx has some natural cleaning properties and may cause spotting on oxidized siding, furniture, or decking. We will spray areas with water prior to treatment to try and avoid.
Q: How long does it take to treat with Roof Maxx?
A: The average time it takes to treat a roof is 1-2hrs.
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 due to age 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.
