Why Are My Roof’s Shingles Cracking and Breaking Already?
Why Are My Roof’s Shingles Cracking and Breaking Already?
If your roof’s shingles are cracking and breaking way before the roof is due for a replacement, it can be really frustrating. After all, roof replacements are expensive and time-consuming – and who’s to say the same breakage won’t happen again a couple of years down the line? The key isn’t in replacing shingles once they’re already broken; it’s in making sure that your shingles are not susceptible to breaking in the first place. How can you do that? That’s exactly what we’re covering today, but first, it’s important to understand what’s causing the breakage. Let’s get into it.

Why Your Shingles Crack

More often than not, cracked shingles – especially if you’re still years away from being due for a roof replacement – aren’t just an inevitable thing that comes with time. Premature cracking is usually a lubrication issue – and, more importantly, it’s preventable.

Your roof’s shingles require oil in order to maintain their shape and elasticity. Oil is a crucial part of your shingles’ ability to remain structurally intact and functional. The issue with that – especially under the relentless Florida sun – is that, over time, shingles are bound to dry out, losing the oils they need. If left without these important oils, shingles begin to crack, flake, or even break altogether.

The Environmental Impact

Too often, homeowners will spend thousands of dollars replacing shingles that are actually perfectly functional (or, rather, that would be perfectly functional if their oil were just replenished). This means that, every year, millions of tons of shingles are placed into landfills unnecessarily each year. Research estimates that about 50% of cracking or worn roof shingles need to be replenished, not replaced – and there’s an affordable, highly effective solution to do just that.

How Soy Fusion Can Help

Soy Fusion is a soy-based shingle treatment technology that replaces the oils your roof desperately needs in order to retain its shingles’ shapes and structure. This, in turn, prevents premature cracks, breakage, and chips, eliminating the chance that you’ll spend thousands of dollars unnecessarily on a roof replacement or extensive repairs.

As a soy-based treatment, Soy Fusion prevents an environmentally conscious alternative to the countless shingles that are needlessly placed in landfills every year. This environmentally friendly, biodegradable treatment option allows you to extend your roof’s lifetime, save thousands of dollars, and minimize your carbon footprint.
