Shingle Savers_USDA Certified Biobased Product 90 percent
Is Shingle savers safe?

Shingle Savers is made with 91% bio based natural food grade oils. It is safe around pets, plants and people. It is easily washed off with water.  

What temperatures are required to put this on my roof?

Typically, we suggest the temperature be at least 39-41 degrees or 4 to 5 degrees above freezing and rising with no rain in the forecast for 45 minutes.

Does this help with moss and algae growing on my roof?

Yes, we suggest cleaning the roof first, then spraying shingle savers. Any moss or algae left will be smothered and killed.

Does Shingle Savers change the color of the shingles?

Yes, the color will darken, similar to what it was when new. Within a month or two it will start to lighten up as the surface oil starts to oxidize off and within a couple of years it will be back closer to the color of the shingles the day the roof was sprayed. 

How does Shingle Savers compare to roof sealants and other similar treatments?

Sealants coat the shingle and can limit future damage. Shingle Savers penetrates the shingle to repair existing damage and protects from future damage to your roof.  There are very few similar treatments and none that provide the concentration of oils that best protect your shingles.  

What does the warranty cover?

The warranty covers the effectiveness of the shingle treatment for 5 years, including shingle flexibility and durability. It does not cover other roof issues including shingle loss, leaks, and damage not related to shingle restoration. The warranty is limited to the cost of the service and typically involves re-spray to resolve application issues.

How do I know if my roof is a good candidate for Shingle Savers ?

The main indicator is the age of the roof, generally 10 years or older. Loss of granular as evidenced in these showing up in gutters is an important indicator. Uneven coloration of the roof can be an indicator of oil loss or algae growth which can be addressed with treatment. Also, shingles that test as “unrepairable” (using a bending test that causes a crease) can be restored and made repairable and safe for repair work. 

How long does the application take and drying time?

Set up and application takes about an hour and a half. It takes about 45 min to dry.

A roofer told me that this is "snake oil" and that sealants should not be sprayed on shingles. True?

Shingle Savers is an innovative formulation of an asphalt pavement conditioner used in the US and Canada for over 15 years. It has been laboratory proven to extend the life of shingles and is warranted for 5 years. It is not a sealant, which we do not recommend applying to asphalt shingles.
