Frequently Asked Questions
When should I treat asphalt shingles with Roof Maxx?Most asphalt roofs show some signs of drying out between 6 and 10 years of age, depending on region and intensity of the Sun’s UV rays.
What are the signs my roof is drying out?When the shingles’ protective top layer of granule coating begins shedding off into the gutters. This coating functions as a sort of “sunscreen” for your shingles. The oil contained within the shingles is essential for maintaining this coating, but as it dries out, the shingles will start to become brittle and crack.
Black stains and streaking on the shingles is another sign that the roof is aging. 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?Roof Maxx’s sole purpose is to maintain your shingles’ flexibility, which is necessary to facilitate daily expansion and contraction. This is not a guarantee against leaks or any other roof related damages.
While many factors can affect how long shingles will last (such as proper installation or attic ventilation), this limited warranty covers against loss of the shingles’ flexibility, the leading cause of roof failure.
Properly applied, Roof Maxx is formulated to keep asphalt shingles flexible for a period of five years. Should they lose their flexibility during the five year limited warranty period, Roof Maxx Technologies, LLC will supply the property owner with product on a pro-rated basis, over 60 months, to re-treat the shingles.
Product can be shipped directly to the property owner or through their Authorized Roof Maxx Dealer. In either case, Roof Maxx Technologies, LLC is not responsible for the cost of shipping.
All other warranties or representations, written or oral, are expressly between the property owner and the Authorized Roof Maxx Dealer.

What are the weather requirements?Temperature: It must be above 32 degrees for application.
Rain: Roof Maxx quickly penetrates the shingle’s top layer and begins soaking in immediately, typically within 30 minutes. There is no need for concern about it being washed away by the rain once it has been absorbed by the shingles.
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 drys out. Roof Maxx’s natural oil resaturates your shingles, which helps to restore their color.
