When Should I Treat My Asphalt Shingles with Roof Maxx?

Short Answer: The ideal time to treat your asphalt shingles with Roof Maxx is when they start showing signs of drying out and losing their protective coating and flexibility. This usually happens when the roof is 5 to 10 years old. That said, we often successfully extend the lifespan of roofs that are over 20+ years old. Given that shingles were richer with asphalt over 30 years ago, we’ve even managed to enhance the longevity of such seasoned roofs!

When to treat asphalt shingles with Roof Maxx? Treat asphalt shingles with Roof Maxx when they show signs of drying or losing flexibility, usually between 5-10 years. However, we regularly service roofs that are 20+ years old and have been successful in extending the life of roofs up to 30 years old or even older. 

Why do asphalt roofs start drying out and becoming brittle? The rate at which this happens can vary, and it depends on factors such as regional climate and the intensity of UV ray exposure. Many roofs are primed for a Roof Maxx treatment by the time they reach 5 – 10 years of age. If your roof is older and has not been treated yet, don’t worry. It’s not unusual for older roofs to have undergone some repairs prior to us being called in to treat them. We’ve often managed to revitalize older asphalt shingles and extend their lifespan by restoring their flexibility.

How to identify if your roof shingles are losing flexibility? The primary sign is a loss of flexibility in the shingles. Asphalt shingles contain asphalt granules – small, sand-like pebbles that stick together when the shingle’s natural oils are present. As these oils start to dry out over time, the granules begin flaking off, often appearing in your gutters or downspouts. Additional signs your roof may be drying out include black stains or streaks, and shingles that crack, break, or curl. Each roof is unique, so we advise having a local dealer evaluate if your roof is an appropriate candidate for Roof Maxx treatment.
