*Are the products that you use toxic?
No. The asphalt on your roof is more toxic than the products we use to both clean and rejuvenate your roof. When the sun beats down on your roof the temperatures can exceed 150 degrees. This heat causes the asphalt to release toxic chemicals into the air. This is why in the heat of summer you can literally smell the roofs baking. Our products, when properly applied, can actually reduce the amount of toxins released into the air.
*Are the products that you use environmentally safe?
Yes. Our products are not only environmentally safe, they are environmentally friendly. Our products will not harm your children or pets. They are safe for your plants and landscaping as well. The fact that you donít choke up the landfills with tons of asphalt shingles saves the environment. Billions of toxic particles are prevented from leaching into our water systems. By using our process you actually reduce your carbon footprint. The air that is no longer polluted from the manufacture of new shingles to replace all those that are dumped each year means fresher air for everyone.
*Is your process expensive?
No. Our process is the least expensive and most effective alternative to replacing your roof. When you compare the cost of replacing your roof to the cost of our process, our process is generally less than 1/5 the cost. In fact, our process costs you less than half of what you would spend on the materials to replace your roof alone. For half of what you would spend to replace your roof yourself we can apply our process without all the mess and hassle.
*Why not just clean my roof ?
Roof cleaners will tell you the black on your roof is just MOLD. This scares the average person into immediately cleaning the roof. The black mold is not the only thing you have to clean off of your roof. The roofs dinginess is caused by polluted air particles settling on your roof as well as the mold. These particles, caused mostly by automobile exhaust, settle on your roof and need to be cleaned off. The solvents used by roof cleaners to clean your roof also start to break down the asphalt underneath the stone. This causes more stone to fall off of your roof. The roof cleaner just cleans your roof and tells you to call him back in a couple years. Each time you clean your roof you reduce its practical lifespan. In fact, some chemicals used by roof cleaning companies can void the roofs warrantee.
We not only clean your roof we rejuvenate it. Our process first cleans your roof. Then we reconstitute the shingles with our rejuvenation process. The first step of this process bonds the stone to the asphalt and prevents further breakdown of the shingle. Then we coat the shingle with a protective coating that will last for at least 5 years. This is why we can guarantee your roof for the life of the home, if you repeat our process every five years.
*Is my roof to old for your process?
In most cases no. In fact, the older the roof the more the asphalt has broken down. This means more fiberglass is left exposed. Our product actually absorbs into the fiberglass and bonds with it thereby reconstituting the shingle. We have protected roofs as old as 35 years old, and given the same life of the home guarantee. However, if your roof is severely blistered it might be a good idea to consult a roofing contractor. We have products that can be used for blistered roofs, but the roof will not look good.
*How long have you been in business?
I have been in the home improvement business for over 30 years. 20 of those years have been right here in Maryland. During the housing boom I purchased and restored homes in the Baltimore area, one of which I still live in. In the process of dealing with many properties with old roofs I had to find an inexpensive and effective alternative to replacing old roofs. Because I was experienced in virtually every aspect of home improvement I had access to many products. I developed this process by experimenting with these products. Finally I came up with this process and it was so effective that it only made sense to offer it to everyone.
*How long have these products been around?
The products we use have been around for over half a century. We have just recently started to use variations of these products for this purpose. Like any technology it takes out of the box thinkers to experiment with existing technology to create innovative new products. Because this rejuvenation process is in the early phase of being patented and trademarked we cannot discuss the details of the process. However, what we have done is to take existing environmentally friendly products and created a product and process that not only protects the environment, but saves you money in the process.
*What if my roof has leaks?
Most roof leaks are minor and we can simply fill the hole with our compatible sealer. If your shingles are loose or falling off there is usually rotting sheathing under the shingle. If this is the case the area may need to be repaired. If the area is repaired the patched area will usually be noticeable. While our process will seal and protect almost any roof, it cannot hide an ugly patch. Face it, not all roofs should be saved. If you have one of those irreparable roofs, or a roof that might not look too pleasing to the eye, we will tell you up front and we will suggest you find a reputable roofer.
*Do you replace roofs?
Sorry, no. We do not replace roofs. We rejuvenate them.
