Roof Replacement or Roof Preservation
Traditionally, there has been only one solution to persistent roof problems—making the costly investment of a complete roof replacement. Roof Revives offers another option—roof preservation services.
Tearing off and replacing roofs when there’s still useful life in them is costing consumers millions of dollars when a simple solution exists that can alleviate much of these costs—as well as the accompanying headaches—roof preservation. The average roof is replaced seven years sooner than necessary because most roofers focus on costly replacements, not repairs and maintenance. Just because your roof looks old and worn, has black stains, a leak or is missing some shingles, doesn’t mean it can’t be repaired!
Roof preservation can be performed on over 95% of older roofs, extending service life by up to 15 years. The roof preservation process has several benefits. It’s much less expensive than replacing an entire roof and represents an excellent value by protecting an existing investment. Unlike roof replacement, roof preservation can usually be done in one day and there is little disruption to those living in the house. Preserving the existing roof saves tear-off costs, meaning little to no mess, a lot less noise, and thousands of dollars saved. It also saves waste disposal costs and is environmentally responsible.
According to a 2014 Angie’s List Survey, the average cost of a new roof is $11,095. But roof preservation costs an average of $3547, approximately one-third the cost of replacement! Our money-saving roof preservation can be completed at a fraction of the cost of a new roof.
Tearing off and replacing a roof is expensive, labor intensive, time-consuming and disruptive. Roof preservation offers you a better option while offering substantial savings. Roof preservation is not only an efficient, cost-effective way to make a good roof better, but also helps extend the interval between expensive roof replacements.
Before preserving your roof with the application of Roof Maxx—our patented shingle reviving organic oil formula—we thoroughly inspect, repair and clean your roof. Our roof preservation specialist 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. We then use our soft wash process to remove black stains and streaks, returning your shingles to their original luster. This cleaning also allows proper penetration of our Roof Maxx shingle reviving organic oils.
Application of our shingle-reviving organic oils preserves the flexibility and water-shedding ability of your shingles. As the oils penetrate deeply into the shingles, the milky white color dissipates quickly, without changing the roof’s color or appearance. Not only does Roof Maxx help restore your roof, but it won’t harm people, pets or property.
WHEN SHOULD I TREAT ASPHALT SHINGLES WITH ROOF MAXX?
Most asphalt roofs show some signs of drying out between six and 10 years depending on region and intensity of the Sun’s UV rays.
WHAT ARE THE SIGNS MY ROOF IS DRYING OUT?
When the shingle’s protective top granule coating (sunblock for shingles) begins shedding off into the gutters. This happens as essential oil dries out of the asphalt causing brittleness.
Black stains and streaking on the shingles. Although not a sign of brittleness it is a sign of age. Most roofs with staining are shedding the protective top coating to varying degrees. Note: Staining does not harm the roof and is only an aesthetic issue.
IS ROOF MAXX SAFE?
YES, Roof Maxx is 100% safe for people, pets, property, and the environment because it’s an all-natural food grade product. Any overspray is rinsed away with a hose or rain.
WHAT DOES THE 5 YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY COVER?
The warranty covers the shingles. Like a standard shingle manufacturer’s warranty, it does not cover against leaks. If you need to replace your roof during the warranty period the unused portion will be applied towards a new roof. The warranty is fully transferable – useful in real estate transactions.
WHAT ARE THE WEATHER REQUIREMENTS?
It must be above 32 degrees for application. Rain: Roof Maxx quickly penetrates the shingle’s top layer, typically within 30 minutes, eliminating rain wash off concerns.
DOES ROOF MAXX CHANGE THE APPEARANCE OF MY ROOF?
Roof Maxx will bring your shingles back closer to their original color. Most shingles lighten in color as the oil dries out. Roof Maxx’s natural oil re-saturates your shingles restoring color.
