Have you ever seen little sand-like granules in your gutters or downspouts? Or noticed black stains or streaks on your roof?

These are signs that your asphalt shingles have started to dry out and deteriorate, according to the experts at Roof Maxx. Other signs are shingles cracking, breaking or curling.

When these signs crop up, though, you don't necessarily need to replace your roof. Roof Maxx will give your roof a tune-up, which includes maintenance to help prevent leaks and then treat your roof. One application can extend the life of your roof for about five years (and it costs about 80 percent less than replacing your roof).

"With applications every five years, Roof Maxx can add up to 15 years of life to an asphalt roof," according to the Roof Maxx experts. "It can make a difference for roofs as young as 6-8 years old, depending on the weather conditions in a given area. But we also apply Roof Maxx to roofs 15-20+ years old all the time, though some require repairs first."

Here's a video that explains more about the technology behind the bio-oil — it's safe for the environment, people and pets:

Roof Maxx is owned by a Yakima native and veteran who is dedicated to prompt, quality service. They offer same-day inspections, complete with photos and videos from the roof, and inspections and estimates are always free. The treatment is performed the same week the work is approved, and the treatment itself only takes two hours.
