What is Greener Shingles?
Greener Shingles is an asphalt shingle rejuvenation service that replaces the oils and resins that have been lost on an aging roof. Asphalt roofs usually start showing some signs of aging after five to ten years depending on region and environmental conditions. The shingle’s granular coating start washing into the gutters as the essential oils dry up losing the ability to hold the granular in place.
Greener Shingles is a powerful, scientifically formulated treatment that's derived from soybean oil. This plant-based oil quickly penetrates deep into brittle asphalt roofing shingles. The powerful all-natural formulation quickly restores your roof's flexibility and waterproofing protection, while also reducing the loss of the shingle's protective top granule coating.

Q: Does Greener Shingles change the color of the shingles?
A: 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 years it will be back closer to the color of the shingles the day the roof was sprayed.
Q: What does the warranty cover?
A: Our five year prorated warranty covers the fact that GS will extend the life of the shingle five years past the expected life of the shingle in the environment they are in. Some owners want to stop the aging process on older shingles, so depending on how old they are we may not be able to warranty a shingle that is starting to show signs of extreme aging, like when the shingles are starting to curl up. The warranty is transferable to the next homeowner.
Q: How do I know if my shingles need rejuvenation?
A: Typically shingles that are ten years old start to show signs of aging, granular loss and could use rejuvenation before they start to curl up and become brittle.
