Replace or Replenish?
When you get a brand-new roof, the shingles on it look the part: vibrant in color, pristine, and near-gleaming. This isn’t just because they’re clean; it’s because they’re infused with oils that allow them to remain elastic and structurally sound in the face of inclement weather, projectiles, and pressure washes.
Over time and as your roof is exposed to the elements, those oils begin to deplete. When that happens, your shingles begin to lose not just their vibrancy, but their elasticity as well. This is what often leads to cracks, chips, and breaks in your shingles (and leaks in your roof). This kind of damage is entirely preventable by oil replenishment, which can also extend the lifetime of your shingles by years.
The Environmental Impact
Imagine the environmental impact we could have if every homeowner vetted their roofs for oil replenishment prior to getting a roof replacement. Because soy-based oil treatments like Soy Fusion are 100% biodegradable, the environmental impact of an oil replenishment treatment is incomparable to the massive waste of a premature roof replacement.
Save Money and Time
Instead of rushing into a roof replacement at the first sign of shingle damage, consult with an expert about whether what your roof really needs is an oil treatment. Oil treatment costs about 20% of what roof replacements do, so you’ll probably save yourself a significant amount of money if it turns out that that’s all you need.
