5 Reasons Why a Soy-Based Roof Treatment is the Way to go for Keeping Your Roof Intact.
5 Reasons Why a Soy-Based Roof Treatment is the Way to go for Keeping Your Roof Intact.
Is it time to replace your roof? It’s one of the most dreaded questions that arises for any homeowner. Like most dreaded questions, it’s also an inevitable one. The thing about roof replacements is that, if you’re in a home for the majority of your life, you’ll probably have to undergo one at some point. The other thing about roof replacements is that, for most people, they come much, much sooner than they actually need to. Most shingle replacements are actually unnecessary, and they come from misinformation about what your roof actually needs. If you want to extend the lifetime of your roof and improve the health of your shingles for a fraction of the cost of roof replacement, then definitely keep reading this blog.

Restore Your Shingles’ Condition

Here’s the thing about brand-new shingles: they’re infused with oils. These oils do more than just give your shingles a vibrant, vivid appearance (though that’s definitely part of it): they keep your shingles elastic, allowing them to withstand all kinds of weather conditions and impact without structural damage. Over time, these oils begin to deplete and, when that happens, your shingles begin to look duller and older; they also start to show some signs of structural wear. This is the point at which most homeowners begin to consider shingle replacements when, in reality, they may not need such a drastic solution. The root of the issue isn’t the shingles themselves; it’s their oil stores. By using a soy-based oil treatment to replenish your shingles’ stores, you can restore them to like-new condition for a much, much lower price point than it would take to replace them.

Prevent Breakage

Soy-based oil treatments restore your shingles’ elasticity, which helps to extend their lifetime significantly. This is because the oils prevent your shingles from cracking, chipping, and breaking like they normally would after oil depletion. The best part? An oil treatment can extend the lifetime of your roof by several years. It’s important to note that replenishing your roof’s oils isn’t a band-aid; it’s a legitimate solution to the problem of dry shingles, and it’s a fantastic option to prevent serious breakage. If serious breakage has already occurred in your shingles, it may be time for an actual replacement.

Avoid Unnecessary Spending

An oil treatment costs about 80% less than a roof replacement. With the average roof replacement costing about $7,000 in Florida, that’s a significant amount of money in savings. On top of that, oil replenishment is one of the most underused solutions in the roof industry. This means that, every year, millions of dollars are spent on unnecessary and premature roof replacements. Instead of dipping into your savings, or even refinancing your home, in order to cover the costs of a roof replacement, be sure to call in an expert and explore the root cause of your shingle issues. You just might save yourself thousands of dollars by finding out that all you need is an oil treatment.

Save Time and Effort

Roof replacements aren’t just expensive; they’re time-consuming, and they’re more often than not a labor-intensive process that needs to be carried out by a professional. We’re not saying that you can or should avoid your roof replacement forever. With that said, oil replenishment isn’t avoiding a replacement; it’s simply pinpointing the real cause of your roof’s issues, which happens to be much more affordable and way less labor-intensive than a full-scale replacement. Save your roof replacement for when you actually need it and give your shingles the lifespan they’re supposed to have with a soy-based oil treatment.

Do Some Good for the Planet

Millions of dollars’ worth of unnecessary roof replacements also means that millions of tons of shingles are prematurely deposited into landfills every year. With the climate becoming an increasingly pressing crisis, that’s a level of waste that our planet just can’t afford to sustain. It’s also easily avoidable. Soy-based oil replenishment isn’t just a great way to save money and give your roof a new life; it’s a far more environmentally friendly solution than a too-early roof replacement. Because the soil treatment is 100% biodegradable, it won’t have any adverse effects on the air quality around your home or the overall health of your yard. Instead, it’ll breathe new life into your roof without an adverse impact on the environment.
If you’re noticing some cracks and dryness on your shingles, don’t jump the gun on getting a roof replacement. Instead, talk to a professional about whether a soy-based oil treatment is a good option for you. Chances are, you’ll save weeks’ worth of time and thousands of dollars. Click here to learn more?
