How we work
Learn about the steps we take to ensure that your Roof Shield application is applied correctly and provides the best possible results for your roof.
The first step in the process is to schedule a consultation with one of our trained professionals. During the consultation, we will assess the condition of your roof and discuss your needs and goals for the application. We will provide you with a quote for the service and answer any questions you may have. It is important for us to fully understand your needs and preferences before beginning the treatment process, so we can ensure that we meet your expectations and deliver the best possible results.
Before the treatment is applied, we will need to prepare your roof. This may involve repairing any damaged or missing shingles, cleaning the surface of the roof, and taking any other necessary precautions to ensure the treatment is applied properly. It is important that the roof is in good condition and prepared properly to ensure that the treatment is applied evenly and effectively.
Once the roof is prepared, we will apply the treatment using specialized equipment. The treatment is applied in a thin layer and is evenly distributed across the surface of the shingles. It is important to follow the manufacturer’s recommended application guidelines to ensure proper coverage and effectiveness. Our team of professionals has been trained in the proper application techniques to ensure that the treatment is applied correctly and provides the best possible results.
After the treatment is applied, we will clean up and ensure that the area is left in a neat and tidy condition. We want to leave your home looking as clean and organized as when we arrived. It is important for us to ensure that you are satisfied with the results of the treatment and that your roof is functioning at its best. We are always available to answer any questions or address any concerns you may have.
Defend Your Roof With Roof Shield
Roof Shield’s most frequently asked questions
Find answers to the most common questions about our proprietary process, including how it works, its benefits, and the process for applying it to your roof.
The roof system of a home is a highly dynamic environment, and over time, constant exposure to the elements will cause the roof system to fail. As shingles age, they become dry and brittle, lose granules, and become more permeable.
Roof Shield addresses these failure points through our ‘Clean-Restore-Protect’ program.
Before the Roof Reboot rejuvenator is applied, the roof will be fully inspected, repaired, and cleaned. Common leak points, such as failing pipe boots, exposed nail heads, and flashing issues, will be inspected and repaired.
Next, the roof will be cleaned with a full soft wash that will neutralize and remove the organic matter that is not only unsightly but is actually helping destroy the shingles.
Finally, the Roof Reboot rejuvenator will be applied. The roof rejuvenation restores the asphalt shingle’s performance to new while bringing out the shingle’s original color. The rejuvenator absorbs into the shingle and replaces the chemicals that have leached out over time. Bringing the shingle back to its original flexibility, stopping further granule loss and vapor transmission.
Roof Reboot is the asphalt shingle rejuvenation product that is owned and manufactured by Roof Shield LLC.
Roof Reboot absorbs into an aging asphalt shingle and:
- Restores flexibility – aging shingles are brittle, dry, and prone to breakage. Roof Reboot restores flexibility to new.
- Stops granule loss – aging shingles shed granules and will become too thin to protect the home. Roof Reboot stops granule loss.
- Restores vapor resistance – aging shingles become permeable and allow water transmission, leading to rotten decking. Roof Reboot restores vapor resistance to new.
- Restores curb appeal – Roof Reboot enhances the color of shingles, restoring their look while enhancing curb appeal.
Many factors affect how a roof will age. In general, we recommend the Roof Shield process for roof systems over 1 year old and not actively failing. Depending on shingle type and environment, Roof Shield clients tend to have roofs between 5 to 20 years of age. Furthermore, roofs that show black streaks (Gloecapsa Magma) are also likely candidates for Roof Shield as the streaking is caused by a bacterium that destroys shingles.
The short answer is no.
Roof Shield improves the performance of your roof, making the roof system less likely to fail. And our softy wash cleaning step uses manufacturer-approved ARMA (Asphalt Roofing Manufacturer Association) guidelines that are accepted industry-wide.
We offer a 5-year transferable warranty with each application by a certified applicator. The warranty certifies that the roof’s performance will remain improved for the next five years.
Roof Shield’s proprietary process is typically most effective on asphalt roofs, but it may also be suitable for other types of roofs. It is important to consult with one of our professionals to determine if our treatment is a good option for your specific roof.
