HOW TO EXTEND YOUR ROOFS LIFE!
In a nutshell Shingle Life™ is neither a roof coating or a sealant.
These solutions alter the design and performance characteristics of shingles and their use is prohibited by most manufacturer warranties .
Our product is an organic micro- emulsion containing natural esters of soy and linseed oil which re-hydrate and rejuvenate asphalt shingles.
As shingles age, they lose granules because the adhesion qualities in the asphalt dissipates. The older the shingles, the more granules are released, consequently the less ability the shingles have to resist the weather elements. Shingle Life™ works by infusing millions of microscopic beads of low evaporating organic oils throughout all the inner and outer layers of asphalt shingles. This restores asphalt shingle plasticity and rejuvenates shingles and seal strips which keep shingles weather tight.
Maintaining the plasticity of asphalt shingles allows for improved weathering and cold curl resistance, plus it prolongs granule adhesion. Our natural rejuvenating process involves replacing the volatile ingredients leeched out of asphalt by UV radiation and replacing these with natural eco safe ingredients which are low evaporators.
Our product is simply diluted 1 : 1 with water and brush or spray applied to asphalt shingle roof surfaces with a garden sprayer and left to do its work.

FOR BEST RESULTS USE UNDILUTED- CAN BE MIXED UP TO 1:1 WITH WATER

EXTEndING LIFE OF ASPHALT SHINGLES
THE IMPORTANCE OF REGULAR ASPHALT SHINGLE ROOF MAINTENANCE
Homeowners need a paradigm shift in thinking and need to become the property managers of their own homes. Roof maintenance plays a vital role in managing the lifetime cost of every asphalt shingle roof.
The residential roofing market in North America has no nationally recognized residential roof maintenance program. The commercial industry has had maintenance programs in place for decades which save property managers tens of millions of dollars a year.

AS featured in 'extreme how to' magazine -april 2014
The life of an asphalt shingle roof depends on local weather conditions, building and design, material quality, and adequate maintenance. Hot climates tend to reduce asphalt shingle life. Roofs in areas that experience severe weather, such as hail, tornadoes and/or hurricanes may also experience a shorter-than-normal lifespan overall or may incur isolated damage that requires repair in order to ensure the service life of the surrounding roofing materials.

WHY DO SHINGLES CUP,CURL AND CRACK?
"Probably the first thing to understand in Canada is that our shingles live in a different climate than those in most of the US. The US is dealing with excessive heat, we are dealing with extreme cold. That is important to realize because our building standards are not the same, so the CSA (Canadian Standards Association) requirements for shingles are much more stringent than those in the US.
However contractors are only required to use CSA certified shingles in new construction. There is no shingle certification requirement for renovation in Canada!"
