When should I treat my asphalt shingles with Roof Maxx?

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 protective coating and 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.
