Why Spray Roofs Perform
Seamless, monolithic, fully-adhered, and field-applied:
Spray foam roofs out-perform traditional ply or membrane roofs.

WHY?

No seams. No leaks.Spray foam has no seams or areas where expansion forces can pull them apart at weak points All buildings expand and contract with the changing weather. While traditional roofs have miles of seams with many areas that can split apart and crack, seamless spray foam roofs eliminate this worry. As an insulated roof system, SPF reduces energy flow into the structure, and minimizes expansion and contraction. Installation In many cases, spray on roofing can be easily installed over an existing single layer roof – without having to tear off.

Spray foam can:

  • Spray Foam Roofing: Easy & Seamless Installation
  • Bond to most older substrates
  • Build up low areas
  • Self-flash around irregular penetrations
  • Seal over old seams
  • Contour all existing surfaces
  • Fully adhere for lasting protection

Spray foam roofing professionals can evaluate your old roof for moisture intrusion, deck integrity, and acceptable surface. If the old roof is still in good condition, they can apply spray foam without ever opening the building and risking content damage to weather. SPF provides superior protection against heavy rains and extreme winds less and monolithic structure of spray foam roofing provides an expansive and continuous roof membrane that keeps out rain and snow. Spray foam seals and fills in with no seams, self-flashing around possible leak points such as:

  • HVAC systems
  • Swamp cooler
  • T-top vents
  • Whirlybird fans
  • Weatherproofing

Unlike single-ply roofing systems that require boots or overlapping layers with adhesive to flash penetrations, spray foam simply expands around obtrusions to lock out moisture and prevent leaks. Spray foam provides maximum wind uplift resistance with full adhesion across the roof substrate, bonding tenaciously to wood, metal, and concrete.  Other low-slope roof systems require excessive amounts of adhesive, a complex pattern of screws and plates, or loads of ballast to meet high wind zone compliance.When wind picks up, SPF is one of the few roof systems that can stay intact and adhered to the structure beneath.

Coating

Spray Foam Roofing Graphic

  • SPF roofs with elastomeric coating provide UV resistance and high R-values
    The white elastomeric coating that is applied over the spray foam aids your roof in a number of ways:
  • Reflects UV
  • Provides a wear surface
  • Enhances your roof’s durability
  • Keeps roof surface cool in summer
  • Reduces Urban Heat Island Effect

The combination of elastomeric coating with spray foam polyurethane provides a high-performance, energy-efficient roofing system that offers superior resistance against foot traffic, protection against UV radiation, and unbeatable insulation properties.
Elastomeric coating can easily be reapplied as needed to offer lasting protection and a long service life for your spray foam roof.

R-Value

Spray foam roofing offers the most energy-efficient insulation available in today’s market SPF roofing has an R-value of 6.5 per inch, offering high levels of thermal resistance that minimize heat transfer and satisfy new building codes that increasingly support insulation on the outside of a structure. Building operating costs are directly related to the energy efficiency of construction materials and design. The higher a building’s R-value, the better its insulating capabilities, and the more it will prevent energy from transferring into the structure. Lower energy transfer means less heat will enter the building.
Less heat entering the building means less hot air for HVAC systems to cool and condition.

Spray polyurethane foam performs on roofs to keep heat in when it’s cold and retain cool air during warmer months.
It is the most energy-efficient form of insulation in today’s market.

For the past forty years, cost-conscient building owners and environmentally-aware architects have been choosing spray foam over traditional roofing systems as an energy-efficient and versatile no tear-off, re-roof alternative to other low slope roofing systems.
