Do Not Replace, Rejuvenate!
Approximately 10 years after installed, asphalt shingles start to age/oxidize/degrade, loose oil and protective rocks (granules), and become more dry/brittle. Greener Shingles asphalt rejuvenator will re-oil/rehydrate/restore the shingles, increase shingle flexibility and granular adhesion, and overall, add 5-15 years of life to your roof.
Asphalt roofs usually start showing signs of aging after 8-10 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. The sole purpose of asphalt rejuvenation is to restore the heath condition of the shingles and tremendously slow down the aging/degradation of the roof.
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 further protection, while also reducing the loss of the shingle’s protective top granule coating.
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.
Natural agriculture oils have been used for the past 15 years to rejuvenate asphalt roads to replace the oils that are lost through years of aging.
By rejuvenating shingles there is 86% better granular adhesion, increased shingle flexibility which helps prevent damage caused by wind and hail.
After just on application, your roof will look new again. The re-saturated shingles will look darker and closer to their original color.
*** Our Asphalt Roof Rejuvenation/Restoration service is only available to the asphalt (or cedar) roofs we cleaned during the past three years because this work can only be done on a cleaner roof. If you have a mossy roof and want it restored, we can remove most of the moss and kill the remained, and spray the rejuvenator after a few weeks.
Here are some roof rejuvenation/restoration-related questions our customers in the Greater Vancouver often ask us.
Typically, shingle rejuvenation costs 10% of the cost of replacement (~$1/sqft).
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.

It’s a light-duty cleaner comparing to our roof cleaning solution. If your roof is heavily infested by moss, we suggest cleaning the roof first, then rejuvenating your shingles with Greener Shingles (2 weeks to 3 years after the cleaning). If the moss is light, a director rejuvenator treatment will clean and rejuvenate at the same time with a lower overall cost. The treatment also restrains the moss growth on the roof; if you rejuvenate the roof every five years, you might never need a roof cleaning service again.
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.
Greener Shingles would be a great choice to add years to your roof and save time from having to replace your solar panels.
