Greener Shingles powerful, scientifically formulated treatment is a USDA certified 90% Bio-based product. This plant-based oil quickly penetrates deep into asphalt roofing shingles, replacing lost oils. This powerful all-natural solution quickly restores your roof’s flexibility and preserves the life of roof shingles, while also reducing the loss of the shingle’s protective top granular coating.
Soy bean oil based rejuvenators have been used to rejuvenate asphalt parking lots and roadways for the past fifteen years. Greener Shingles has adapted that same technology to extend the life span of asphalt shingles, helping homeowners extend the life of their shingles 5-15 years.
Asphalt roofs usually start showing signs of aging after five to ten years depending on region and environmental conditions. The shingle’s granular coating starts washing into the gutters as the essential oils dry up, losing the ability to hold the granular in place. Greener Shingles also waterproofs the surface, suffocates moss, increases shingle flexibility, helps keep granular in place, preserving and rejuvenating the shingles to last longer, keeping them on your roof where they belong.
PRI Asphalt Technologies Inc, one of the largest shingle and asphalt testing labs in the world, tested Greener Shingle’s bio-based product and concluded that Greener Shingles extends asphalt shingles life span, improves granular adhesion by 86% and makes asphalt shingles 40% more flame resistant.
