Roof Maxx Named 2019 BizTech Awards Honoree in Two Categories
Columbus Business First recognizes Roof Maxx twice— as a Green Innovation and for Executive of the Year for CEO, Mike Feazel.
COLUMBUS, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Columbus Business First has recognized Roof Maxx, www.RoofMaxx.com, a U.S.-based network of new-breed roofing restoration experts, as an honoree for two 2019 BizTech Awards. The company is receiving honors as a Green Innovation for 2019, and Mike Feazel, Roof Maxx CEO and co-founder, is being recognized as a 2019 Executive of the Year.
“Roof Maxx is delighted to see the recognition of our technology," said Mike Feazel, CEO and co-founder at Roof Maxx. “Roof Maxx’s accomplishments are an indication of a great need in the market that can be answered with a progressive and eco-friendly solution.”
“Our mission is to support property owners, developers and solar providers in delaying the cost of roof replacement while making a significant impact on our environment,” Feazel continued. “We look forward to making this technology available to every city possible within the U.S. and beyond.”
Roof Maxx is a sustainable technology that significantly reduces the need to manufacture, dispose of and replace asphalt roofing. Roof Maxx is an all-natural, soy-based shingle rejuvenator spray that extends the life of aging roofs. The product was developed in partnership with Battelle Labs and the Ohio Soybean Council. When used every five years, Roof Maxx can extend the life of a roof by as many as 15 additional years. In contrast, the average replacement cost of an asphalt roof is about $12,000, with a Roof Maxx treatment costing typically only 15%-20% of the cost of replacing a roof.
“The Ohio Soybean Council (OSC) has made a fair number of contributions to greener industry standards, and Roof Maxx is a highlight. We’re particularly proud to have partnered with Roof Maxx in developing a product that benefits so many, in so many ways,” said Barry McGraw, Director of Product Development & Commercialization at the OSC. “We congratulate Mike Feazel, and his innovative roofing solution on the Columbus BizTech Award wins.”
According to a recent Ohio State University research study, asphalt shingles account for 80 percent of U.S. roofs, and approximately 7 percent of U.S. roofs are replaced every year. If even 1 percent of single-family homes (about 15 percent of yearly replacements) applied a SMEE (Soy Methyl Ester Emulsion) formula instead of replacing the roof, we could avoid 5.6 billion pounds of landfill waste and 1.1 million metric tons of CO2 equivalents in emissions.
For Roof Maxx, these sustainability discoveries are helping to propel the company’s status as the fastest-growing roofing company in America, with a presence in 48 U.S. states and 500 cities in just two years.
