The Versatile Benefits of Spray Foam Roofing

Posted on February 18th, 2016 by Applied Roofing Services

Spray foam roofing is an ideal solution for many roof repairs. Not only is it cost effective and extremely convenient, it has a host of other benefits that will save you both time and money. Homeowners that opt for spray foam roofing Los Angeles can actually extend the life of their roof and protect their home from water damage. Let’s have a close look at some of the versatile benefits of spray foam roofing.

Flexibility
Spray foam roofing is flexible enough to withstand the contraction and expansion of a roof at normal levels. It can also withstand the stress associated with high winds and turbulent storms.

Versatile
Polyurethane spray foam roofing can be used on any existing roofing material. It also conforms to peaks, valleys and crevices and creates a seal that flows along the lines of the roof. It can be used on new roofs and existing roofs that need minor repairs or renovations.

Reduces Ponding
Because it creates a smooth surface and fills in gaps and low areas, spray foam roofing reduces ponding and prevents water from accumulating. The foam also fills in deep lines or tracks and prevents water from penetrating deep into the roof.

Self-Flashing
Spray foam roofing easily conforms to whichever surface it is applied to. It can be used around chimneys, HVAC units, skylights and vents to create a tight seal that prevents leaking and internal water damage.

Seamless
When spray foam roofing is applied, there are no seams to worry about. The foam sticks together in one solid sheet, with no cracks, lines or seams that would allow moisture or air to penetrate into the roof.

Prevents Leaks
Spray foam roofing creates a seal that is both water resistant and air tight. The foam prevents water from seeping in and also keeps warm/cool air from leaking out.

What You Ought to Know About the Types of Steel Roofing

Posted on November 11th, 2015 by Applied Roofing Services

Steel roofing is much more durable than conventional types of roofing materials. While it cost more to install, it can last several years longer than regular asphalt shingles. This actually makes it more of an investment than an expense. It can also dramatically increase the overall value of your home.

Affordable Steel Roofing

Here are the two types of steel roofing:

Concealed Fastener Steel Roofing
Of the two main types of steel roofing, concealed fastener is the most expensive. The bolts and fasteners are neatly hidden within the folds of the panels that neatly interlock with one another. Nothing is visible from the ground except for the sheeting.

Because the bolts are hidden, there is less need for additional sealant to be applied as the roof ages. Less upkeep is required as well. Concealed fastener roofing is much more pleasing to the eye and will often lead to a higher resale price for your home.

Exposed Fastener Steel Roofing
Exposed fastener steel roofing is one of the most affordable roofing options. Steel roofing that leaves the fasteners and bolts exposed is less expensive, but requires more upkeep and general maintenance. Bolts and fasteners fill holes. This means that sealant must be applied regularly to prevent water from leaking into the home through the small openings.

Exposed fasteners are also at a much higher risk of damage from debris or limbs that may fall from trees. Over time, this can cause them to loosen or break off depending on how well the roof is cared for. Because the bolts and fasteners are in plain view, it will be somewhat easier to notice if they have been damaged. Prompt repairs are extremely important to maintain the integrity of the roof.
