Benefits of Spray Foam Roof Systems:

Leak free monolithic seal over your entire roof deck

Self-flashing

High insulation value / Rapid payback with energy savings

Strong adhesion and wind uplift resistance

Weather resistant

Lightweight and high strength

UL and FM approved systems

Foam adds excellent insulation value to the structure and utility bills can reflect the difference

Cost effective !!!

Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) adheres to just about every traditional roofing material so it can be installed over concrete, wood, steel, and most existing roof systems. This saves on the expense of roof removal and landfill fees, and is considered to be more environmentally friendly. SPF Roofing installers can spray apply a tapered roof system with the foam which eliminates the need for costly tapered insulation systems. The cants and vertical wall terminations are also spray applied making them an integral part of the roof system and minimizing additional component costs and flashing materials.

SPF Roofs Form a Solid Monolithic Protective Roof Covering.

Sprayed Polyurethane Foam is applied as a liquid using plural-component spray equipment to fill cracks and crevices. It then expands approximately 30 times its original liquid volume to form a hard, closed cell monolithic roof surface. This seamless total roof covering helps to significantly reduce the possibility of leaks.

The Polyurethane Foam dries within seconds after applied to the roof surface. Its expansion results in a weather tight roofing membrane that is fully adhered to the substrate. Because of polyurethane's lightweight it adds little additional weight to the structure and is often used in remedial applications.

Polyurethane Foam has a history of more than 35 years as a maintainable roofing medium. Polyurethane Foam adds excellent insulation value to the structure and utility bills can reflect the difference.

Once the SPF has been applied to the proper thickness and finish specifications, a protective layer of elastomeric coating is applied. This protective layer produces a durable weather resistant surface and that can be walked on for normal maintenance.

Foam roofs are very durable and can handle foot and construction traffic just as well as other roofing systems. They are still susceptible to damage from dropped tools just as any other roof but the damage is more easily seen and can most often be repaired with some simple polyurethane caulking. Spray Foam roofs have extremely high adhesive characteristics and often demonstrate the strongest resistance to high winds and wind-uplift. Spray foam roofing systems have performed extremely well compared to traditional roof systems in areas of high wind, tornados and hurricanes.

Most SPF roofs have densities ranging from about 2.5 pounds per cubic foot to 3 pounds per cubic foot. Density of SPF is important when it comes to strength and thermal resistance. Obviously, higher density means increased strength and higher R-value. Three-pound density foam has a compressive strength of about 50 psi and an R-value of 7.14 installed and 6.86 aged per inch, (these numbers may vary slightly depending on the foam manufacturer).

SPF ROOF SYSTEM can pay for itself in approximately four and a half years.

If the coating for an SPF roof is properly maintained, then an SPF roof can last a very long time. Every ten or fifteen years, depending on the type and amount of coating installed, the roof will need to be cleaned, and recoated. If this is done, then a quality SPF roof could last 50 years or longer.

Once the SPF has been applied to the proper thickness and finish specifications, a protective layer of elastomeric coating is applied. This protective layer produces a durable weather resistant surface and that can be walked on for normal maintenance.

ENERGY STAR qualified roof coating products reduce the amount of air conditioning needed in buildings, and can reduce energy bills by up to 50%. The Cool Roof Program defines certain standards for reflectivity, and maintenance of reflectivity, in roof coating systems. These light colored roof coatings reflect the suns heat and UV rays and often lower the temperature of the roof by up to 100 degrees.
