Signs Your Roof Needs Treatment:
Granules are the "rock" coating that protects shingles from the elements. As petro-chemical oils evaporate, shingles lose adhesion, become dry and brittle, and granules start to shed, often ending up in the gutter. The roof treatment penetrates the shingle, reactivating granular adhesion, and holding the critical protective granules in place.
Black algae stains are prevalent across Michigan, but most homeowners don't realize those streaks are actually a sign of a failing roof. The reduction of asphalt content in new shingles means the oils dry out much faster than they used to and that is what allows the algae roots to take hold. Algae roots are very destructive to the shingles, but cleaning alone won't solve the problem. MI Roof Renewal re-saturates the shingle with bio-oils that choke off the root systems of the algae and prevent re-growth.
Any Asphalt Shingle Roof That's Over
10 Years Old
Over the last 20 years, shingle manufacturers have reduced the amount of asphalt in shingles by as much as 40%. As a result, a "30 Year Roof" is now failing in as little as 10 years in our harsh Michigan climate. Even if you don't have visible signs yet, MI Roof Renewal will reverse the deterioration of your roof, saving you thousands of dollars now and over the long term.
Brittle or Cracked Shingles
The ability to expand and contract in rapidly changing temperatures is vital to the performance of shingles. Evaporation of the petro-chemical oils results in the loss of flexibility, leading to potential cracking, and even leaks. We'll caulk and seal minor cracks before applying the roof treatment, restoring flexibility.
Evaporation of petro-chemical oils means the adhesive strips that hold shingles together lose their stickiness. That allows the shingle tabs to separate in a storm, causing damage and dramatically increasing the potential for leaks. MI Roof Renewal re-activates the adhesive strips so the shingle stays in place during heavy winds.
A Roof Nearing

Until now, there has been no alternative to roof replacement that could reverse the aging process of your shingle roof and extend its life. MI Roof Renewal can extend the life of your asphalt shingle roof by 5-15 years, for up to 85% less than the cost of replacement. Before you replace that aging roof, contact us to find out if MI Roof Renewal can save it.
