About ShingleFlex Asphalt shingles are made from petroleum byproducts and various mineral fillers. Asphalt roads and driveways are made up of similar materials and just as a road way deteriorates over time due to traffic, weather and UV exposure, so does your asphalt roof. Continual exposure to the elements over time reduces your roofs ability to remain pliable, which leads to the break down of the shingles and the exposure of aggregate fillers inside. Your shingles eventually losing all ability to maintain water hold out. Asphalt simply deteriorates over time and new technologies, such as Shingle Flex are adding longer life to these asphalt surfaces. ShingleFlex special blend of Bio oils and Ultra UV inhibitor penetrates the asphalt binder in your shingles, maintaining the shingles flexibility and pliability, allowing the roof hold water out for many more years than would normally be expected.
