to your roof
1. Roof Inspection and setup
2. Application takes about an hour
3. Longer Lasting Shingles, improved granular adhesion and flexibility.
EXTEND THE LIFE
OF YOUR ROOF
Although we don't recommend rejuvenating shingles that are in this bad of shape, this (above) evidence does show how well the Greener Shingles rejuvenator works. When applied to dried-out, brittle shingles that have curled up because of a lack of oil, the Greener Shingles rejuvenator penetrates to the lower tab of the shingle, and the shingles laid back down flat. The color change is quite drastic in this example but shows how dried out the shingles were before the application. Now that the shingles once again have oil in them, the shingles will be able to withstand expansion and contracting and help to keep the remaining granule in place, effectively buying this homeowner sometime before total replacement.

Soy bean oil based rejuvenators have been used to rejuvenate asphalt parking lots and roadways for the past fifteen years, making it the number one asphalt rejuvenator in the USA. Greener Shingles has adapted that same rejuvenator to extend the life span of asphalt shingles.
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.
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.
Here are a few frequently asked questions:
Q: What temperatures are required to put this on my roof?
A: 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.
Q: How much does it cost?
A:Typically, shingle rejuvenation costs 15% of the cost of replacement. An average cost of roof replacement in 2020 was $10,000 compared to only $1,500 to rejuvenate.
Q: Does Greener Shingles change the color of the shingles?
A: Yes, the color of the shingles will darken, similar to what it was like when new. Within a couple of years the shingles will start to lighten up as the surface oils begin to oxidize off.
Q: Does this help with moss and algae growing on my roof?
A: We suggest cleaning the roof first, then rejuvenating your shingles with Greener Shingles. Any moss or algae left will be smothered and killed. Check out the before and after pictures in the gallery.
Q: Is Greener Shingles safe?
A: Greener Shingles is made with 90% bio-based natural food grade oils. It is safe in small quantities, easily washed off with water, but like water in a flood it's not 100% safe but is safe around pets, plants and people.
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 ageing, granular loss and could use rejuvenation before they start to curl up and become brittle.
Did you know that nearly 11 million tons of asphalt shingles make their way into landfills every year?
Shingle rejuvenation extends the life of asphalt shingles, keeping shingles on roofs and out of the landfills.
