Short Answer: Treatment is around 20% of the cost of a complete roof replacement.

A complete roof replacement is a major cost for homeowners. On the other hand, an asphalt shingle treatment from Roof Maxx can dramatically cut the costs of prolonging the life of your roof. A Roof Maxx treatment costs around 20% of the cost of a complete roof replacement. With the cost of roof replacement going up 25% to 30% over the past year due to Covid-19, that adds up to considerable savings.

For example, the national average cost for a quality roofing system is in excess of $12,000, while a Roof Maxx treatment is just under $2500. 

Roofing costs, for replacement or Roof Maxx depends on the size, complexity, and accessibility of your roof.

A treatment from Roof Maxx can be done in a fraction of the time that a complete roof replacement takes. That’s not to mention avoiding the noise and mess that come along with a roof replacement. Plus, Roof Maxx is a natural treatment that is safe for your home, family, and pets.

Another cost factor will be whether your roof needs a tune-up or any extra preparations to make sure everything is intact before we apply Roof Maxx. This may include replacing plumbing boots, sealing nail pops and/or caulking around flashing.

All told, a treatment from Roof Maxx will likely save you a significant amount of money. It can also save you a lot of hassle. Contact us today for more information. See what Roof Maxx can do for your home.

Short Answer: Roof Maxx’s powerful plant-based oil penetrates deep into the roof shingle’s asphalt core replacing the dried-out petrochemical oil. This restores flexibility and waterproofing protection.

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.

Short Answer: No, treatment must be completed by a factory-certified Roof Maxx dealer. 

Unfortunately not, because Roof Maxx isn’t a product you can apply on your own because it requires specific spray equipment and training for proper application. But fortunately, we’ve carefully trained hundreds of certified Roof Maxx dealers all over the country to ensure effective results. 

Short Answer: We do not suggest treating with Roof Maxx until the top granule coating begins shedding off. Once this begins to happen, it’s a sign the roof is undergoing stress during contraction and expansion. 

Be aware that if your asphalt roof is less than 6-8 years old and you live in warmer southern climates or is less than 8-10 years old and you live in northern climates, it may still have much of its original oil. This means it likely won’t need to be treated with Roof Maxx just yet. But, if your roof is close to those age ranges, it’s best to have a Roof Maxx dealer at least check it for granule loss and other issues to see if Roof Maxx can start extending the life of your roof (by 5 years!) right now.

Contact Us today with any questions or inquiries. We look forward to showing you the difference Roof Maxx can make when it comes to sustaining and beautifully maintaining your roof.

Short Answer: No, because 99% of roof leaks occur at the flashings, the most leak-prone areas of the roof, such as around chimneys and skylights or along a wall.

We do offer an optional Roof Tune-up Package for roofs that need a little TLC. Our Roof Tune-up focuses on the most common issues in an effort to minimize or potentially stop any current or future leaks.

Yes. Roof Maxx is safe for people, pets, property, and the environment. It’s actually been certified as a USDA BioPreferred product

As your roof gets older, the oils inside begin to dry out, causing the shingles to become brittle. As a result, they no longer have the flexibility needed to withstand the elements and they slowly begin to break apart.

Roof Maxx rejuvenates your roof by restoring the shingles to near the durability and water-proofing levels they reached when they were new. This is accomplished when millions of microbeads saturate the brittle parts of your roof, similar to the way moisturizer works for your skin. The all-natural oils also improve the granule adhesion, meaning the shingles are less prone to damage during strong winds. 

While Roof Maxx is easily soaked up and retained by asphalt shingles, it can be rinsed off any other surface with a garden hose. Within 30 minutes, the product will be completely absorbed, so rain won’t be a problem. It is also a non-flammable product, so it will not increase the risk of fire or the spreading of flames.

When you have a new roof installed or a roofer makes repairs, you will most likely find nails and garbage surrounding your house, even after they’ve cleaned up. With Roof Maxx, not only is there no oily residue leftover from our treatments, but you won’t have to worry about other messes in your yard when we’re through.

Is Roof Maxx safe? Yes, Roof Maxx is a scientifically formulated, natural, safe, plant-based roof rejuvenating spray treatment that was developed by Battelle Labs, the world’s largest private research and development company.

Definitely! We’ve heard of many situations in which older roofs have caused home deals to fall through. Or, just as bad, a potential home buyer will ask a seller to reduce the price of a home by $10,000 or more because the roof shows signs of aging. The good news is that Roof Maxx has saved hundreds of real estate transactions in which the roof was a point of contention—and our warranty is fully transferable without restrictions. Contact a nearby Roof Maxx dealer for an assessment to find out if your roof could benefit from Roof Maxx.

The first thing to consider is that you may not actually need a new roof. We’ve helped thousands of property owners avoid asphalt roof replacements, even if their roofs required a few repairs first. Usually, as long as you haven’t had ongoing leaks, significant rotting and decay, extreme sagging, and/or shingles blowing off, Roof Maxx could be an option for you.

We’ve created a revolutionary roofing spray that extends the lifespan of your roof up to 15 years. This oil rejuvenates your old roof shingles, restoring their flexibility closer to that of new roof shingles. Additionally, a Roof Maxx treatment decreases the loss of the protective top coating. In both cases, this helps your roof stand up to wind, hail, and rain, just like a new roof.

A single treatment with our roofing spray puts life back into your aging roof. As soon as it’s applied, the spray goes to work immediately. The spray soaks into your dried out shingles and replaces the life-saving chemicals needed to keep your shingles strong. Our spray is impervious to weather and soaks in for up to 72 hours.

At Roof Maxx, we’re dedicated to saving you money and giving you peace of mind. Rather than replacing your roof, a timely and expensive process, we restore it to make it like new again. Our treatment ensures your roof is waterproof and strong, keeping you safe and dry no matter what the weather. 

Contact a nearby Roof Maxx dealer for an assessment that will tell you if we can help you avoid a roof replacement.

Asphalt shingles can absolutely be recycled, but only around 9% of asphalt shingles end up getting recycled into other things, such as the necessary ingredients for asphalt roads. This low percentage seems to be connected to the cost of the recycling process and a lack of asphalt-recycling facilities. It’s also much easier to simply discard used up shingles into dumps and landfills. When asphalt is dumped into a landfill, it will sit there for many, many years because it isn’t biodegradable. 

Recycling is more common today than it was years ago. However, some things aren’t being recycled as quickly or efficiently as could be hoped. This is because the process of recycling is very involved and takes a lot of time and money. This is true of basically any recyclable items, including metals, glass, hard and soft plastics, even asphalt shingles. 

However, because asphalt is on the list of recyclable items that aren’t being recycled at a high rate, choosing to recycle them might not be the best idea.

So what’s the solution? While we wait for the asphalt-recycling system to get set up to a point that allows them to start recycling more of the world’s used asphalt, those of us who own homes or various properties can extend the lives of asphalt roofs and keep their shingles out of landfills for as long as possible with Roof Maxx. 

Contact us at Roof Maxx today with any questions about our roof maintenance products that can lengthen the life of your asphalt shingles.

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.

So, can Roof Maxx make an asphalt roof last forever? Sadly, nothing lasts forever. But so far, Roof Maxx has been proven through testing and research done at The Ohio State University to add an average of 15 years of life to an asphalt roof. 

Roof Maxx is designed to add years to your asphalt roof; over the years we’ve proven that our product can add five years of life per application to an intact asphalt roof. Having an intact asphalt roof means any structural issues have been repaired and everything is as it should be before we apply Roof Maxx to your roof. 

Roofs experience a lot of wear and tear. After all, they are designed to protect the inside of homes and buildings from the elements. When an asphalt roof undergoes hundreds or thousands of days worth of exposure to rain and wind, snow and sleet, it will eventually need to be replaced. However, it doesn’t need to be replaced for additional years if treated properly. 

Treatments come with a five-year transferable warranty. Repeating treatments every five years can extend your roof’s life by up to fifteen years. But, you never know! We could get 15 years down the road and find out that even longer is possible.

Have other questions about Roof Maxx besides if it could make an asphalt roof last longer? Contact us today.

The application of a Roof Maxx treatment takes between 30 minutes at the least and a few hours at the most. The time it takes to apply the treatment will depend on the size of your roof and the state and condition of your roof and asphalt shingles. 

Our local technicians will be able to give you a precise, customized estimate. Before beginning the process of applying the Roof Maxx treatment, our technicians will conduct an initial assessment to determine the condition of your roof. They will examine your roof and give you an estimate for how long the application of the Roof Maxx treatment will take. 

Smaller roofs that are clean and in good repair, other than brittle and inflexible shingles, can usually be finished in as little as a half hour. The Roof Maxx treatment will take longer, up to several hours, if the technician notes any issues that require additional steps to prepare the asphalt roof for treatment. This pretreatment tune-up may include removing debris such as sticks or leaves, sealing exposed nails, and securing loose flashing. All of these need to be done before Roof Maxx can be applied.

There may be some additional problems or repairs needed before Roof Maxx can be applied. We will examine your roof for problems and leaks, let you know if there are any problems, and make recommendations for fixing them. Weather, sunshine, and age can have a damaging effect on your roof, with problems ranging from debris damage to leaking. 

Roof Maxx is a specialized eco-friendly spray designed to extend the life of your asphalt roof tiles by restoring their natural flexibility, leaving them less prone to breaking and leaking. If you already have these problems on your roof, you may be able to fix them and then apply Roof Maxx to extend the life of the rest of your roof. 

So how long does a Roof Maxx treatment take? Every roof is different. Our local technicians can examine your roof to let you know how Roof Maxx can help and how long the treatment will take. Contact us today for more information and to schedule an evaluation.

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.

Weather conditions must be dry, with the temperature above 36 degrees Fahrenheit, for Roof Maxx to be applied successfully. These weather requirements allow the treatment to fully penetrate the shingles and soak into the asphalt.

 This question is especially likely to come up in winter months and wet climates. While dry weather is required for applying Roof Maxx, don’t worry if it rains an hour or more after the treatment. Depending on your climate, it can take 30 minutes to an hour for the treatment to soak in. Roof Maxx will penetrate the shingles and fully soak into the asphalt within one hour, leaving your roof fully treated and protected from the elements. Once it has soaked into the asphalt tiles, the Roof Maxx treatment cannot be washed away by rain. 

Because Roof Maxx is a water-based, all-natural saturant, the roof can even be slightly damp before treatment. Your local technician will examine the roof before application to make sure conditions are perfect for applying the treatment so that it will soak in and revive your roof. 

Roof Maxx is an eco-friendly spray that is applied directly to the asphalt shingles on your roof. Weather can be very draining on an asphalt roof. Sun, rain, snow, and wind all take a toll on a roof, causing the tiles to age and dry out, becoming brittle and fragile. Algae can even grow on asphalt tiles, also making them brittle. Brittle tiles break, crack, and leak, which can lead to expensive and time-intensive repairs. Roof Maxx’s treatment coats the asphalt tiles and soaks in, creating a waterproof weather barrier that extends the life of your roof. It is a great investment for protecting against weather and sun damage. Plus, the all-natural Roof Maxx formula is natural and safe for humans and pets.

Testing has found and proved that Roof Maxx treatment has no effect on fire risk or spread of flame on an asphalt shingle roof. During its development, Roof Maxx was tested by The Ohio State University Department of Food, Agricultural, and Biological Engineering in line with the standards of the American Society for Testing. Roof Maxx was subjected to a number of safety and functional tests, including fire safety.

It’s interesting how they answered the question, “Does Roof Maxx pose a fire risk?” Two roofs were tested. One was treated with Roof Maxx, and the other was not. The edges of both roofs were ignited with gas torches and burned for 10 minutes. 

After the test, the damage caused by the flames was examined and measured. The two roofs showed no difference: the spread of flame and the flame damage was the same on the treated and the untreated shingles. The conclusion? Application of Roof Maxx does not increase the risk of fire or the rate a fire will spread.

Ohio State University testing showed evidence that Roof Maxx significantly enhances shingle flexibility, adhesion, and hail resistance. It also restores shingle permeability closer to that of new shingles.

As seen in the photo below, applying Roof Maxx may darken your shingles a bit, making them look more like they did when they were new. (They’ll act more like they’re new, too.) Your shingles will likely remain darker in color for a few months, and then will slowly lighten up again over time.

As Roof Maxx oil is absorbed, it also restores the flexibility and durability of old and brittle shingles, in many cases making your roof appear newer. Your shingles will become more pliable and resistant to wear and tear, including dings and dents from hail.

Roof Maxx Technologies proudly offers a five-year limited warranty. What Does Roof Maxx’s 5-year Limited Warranty Cover? It guarantees that the asphalt shingles we treat will remain flexible for at least five years from the date of treatment. And since we know you may not necessarily live under the same roof for the next five years, our warranty is fully transferable without restrictions. It remains valid even if the shingle manufacturer’s warranty is void because of transfer restrictions, time or any other limitation included in manufacturers’ warranties. See the full Roof Maxx warranty for more details.

We want you to know that the asphalt shingles treated with Roof Maxx will perform as originally designed and warranted by the shingle manufacturer for a period of at least five (5) years from the date of your treatment.

Roof Maxx restores asphalt shingles closer to their original levels of flexibility, which allows them to expand and contract as needed with changes in temperature and weather. Our safe plant-based product adds life and function to your asphalt shingles so your home gets the protection you need from your roof.

The Roof Maxx Warranty is still valid even if your manufacturer’s warranty is (or becomes) void due to time or transfer restrictions. This is not a warranty against leaks from faulty installation or other damage sustained by the roof (hail, high winds, etc.). However, if under normal operating and weather conditions the treated shingles lose their proper operating flexibility, granular adhesion characteristics, or structural integrity or performance, your Certified Roof Maxx Dealer will retreat all affected areas on a simple prorated basis (over 60-month warranty period). Contact us today to learn more about Roof Maxx and what it can do for you!

You want your roof covered just as well as it covers your house. That’s why we offer our own warranty for Roof Maxx treatments. It’s also why shingle manufacturers cover their products. Your Roof Maxx treatment does not affect your shingle warranty.

So far we’ve had no indication that applying Roof Maxx to asphalt shingles will void or limit any sort of warranty in any way. In fact, we’ve never heard of a manufacturer’s warranty claim being denied because Roof Maxx was applied.

We take our commitment to covering your shingles seriously. We stand by our 5-year limited warranty. We also look into shingle manufacturer warranties to make sure your roof stays covered.

That’s not just hearsay. We have done the research for you to get the most informed warranty information available. Our attorneys have researched major shingle manufacturers’ warranties and consulted with industry organizations on the matter as well.

When you get your shingles treated with Roof Maxx, you can extend the life of your roof. We are so confident in our product that we offer our own warranty. Roof Maxx Technologies, LLC, proudly warrants that the asphalt shingles treated with Roof Maxx will perform as originally designed and warranted by the shingle manufacturer for a period of at least five (5) years from the date of your treatment.

The Roof Maxx Warranty is still valid even if your manufacturer’s warranty is (or becomes) void due to time or transfer restrictions. This is not a warranty against leaks from faulty installation or other damage sustained by the roof (hail, high winds).

Most likely in a positive way, if at all! For example, there have been many instances where a Roof Maxx application has helped property owners get insurance coverage after receiving an insurance notice about their roof needing replacing. Of course, every situation is different, so we can’t make any guarantees. But your local Roof Maxx dealer can help point you in the right direction.

We have hundreds of Roof Maxx dealers throughout the United States, and we’re moving into new areas all the time. Fill out this short form to find the Roof Maxx dealer closest to you.

The primary ingredient in Roof Maxx is a plant-based, food-grade, non-toxic oil. These plant based oils are not only the primary ingredient in Roof Maxx, but also in recent upgraded technology in new award-winning Goodyear tires. We love being in good company.

Using plant-based technology, Roof Maxx was able to use the oil in these plant-based ingredients to replace lost oil in shingles. The oil is fused into millions of tiny micro-beads that can quickly penetrate shingles and give them back their flexibility, durability, and waterproofing abilities. It works almost immediately and gives shingles back the ability to shed water, slows down granule loss, therefore, keeping them in place longer, and even withstand the blunt force that can break shingles.

When shingles are made, there are petrochemical oils within the shingles’ asphalt that allow them to expand and contract with the weather. Over time, this oil dries out and causes shingles to become brittle. Roof Maxx wanted to find a way to replace these lost oils.

Our spray is made solely from all-natural, food-based products which also helps us to reduce our environmental footprint. A Roof Maxx treatment replaces the petrochemical oils naturally found in asphalt that have evaporated with an all-natural bio-friendly oil to give shingles the flexibility and durability needed to help withstand the elements.

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.
