When Should I Consider Sealing My Shingles?
There are a few factors as to when you should seal your shingles:
1. Shingles that have reached the 10-year mark are good candidates for treatment. When you start treatment at that point, you can double the life of your shingles and largely reduce problems during the subsequent 10 years.
Roof Maxx can often be applied late in the life of a roof (15-20 years) and revive the roof, giving the old roof an additional 5 years. See if your your qualifies for a 5 year Guarantee – HERE
2. Loss of protective coating: The protective top coating or “granules” are critical for reflecting the sun’s harmful UV rays. Once you start seeing granule loss, it’s time to seal. Roof Maxx treatment enhances granule adhesion helping prolong shingle life, keeping shingles from becoming brittle and breaking.
3.Shingle staining/streaking (moss and algae growth): Moss and algae, common with our PNW weather, retains moisture for long periods of time, breaking granules loose. Roof Maxx has natural fungicides that resist algae growth.
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 drys 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.
