The existing roof, having been built with inadequate attic ventilation, cooked the shingles to a state of 'requires replacement' after 12 years. I added some ridge ventilation and left the existing gable vents intact and chose to have my ROOFIT custom 'coloured' in a light beige so heat reflection would also help my attic temperature from getting too hot.
-saved a lot of money in the short-term not having to reshingle
-will save a lot of money in the long term because the life of the old shingles has been prolonged
-the light colour is cutting my air conditioning costs
-my roof is stronger and more impermeable now
Hurricane Earl passed through September 4th and blew a tree down in my yard. This video was shot the day after (Sept 5, 2010). An appropriate time to check the roof since ROOFIT is supposed to adhere shingles to the roof as well as make them stronger, more impact resistant and waterproof. I had lost shingles prior to applying ROOFIT in much lower wind speeds than we were exposed to by Hurricane Earl but no shingles got loose from my roof thanks to ROOFIT. Dartmouth Nova Scotia Canada

Here are some photos Dom. Let me know if there are any others you may want.The one with the black roof was taken prior to Hurricane Earl,
the one with the tree blown over was taken Sept 4, 2010 during Hurricane Earl and the rest were taken today, Sept 5, 2010 - the day after the hurricane.
Not one shingle missing and I have lost shingles prior to using ROOF-IT with much less wind than we were exposed to yesterday
