Polyurethane Foam Insulation: What Are Its Benefits?

Posted on February 4th, 2022 by Applied Roofing Services

Insulation is essential to maintain the right temperature in a building at all times. Although there are plenty of insulation materials to choose from for your commercial building, polyurethane insulation is one best. Polyurethane reduces energy waste, which keeps your building energy-efficient and minimizes the need for additional heating and cooling.

Here are some other benefits of polyurethane foam insulation:

  • Outstanding Performance

Polyurethane insulation eliminates thermal bridging, provides air sealing, and minimizes moisture buildup. All of these features help minimize heating and cooling costs, creating a cozy and cost-effective working environment.

  • High R-Value

R-value (thermal resistance) is the measurement of a material’s ability to prevent heat transfer. It is calculated based on the thermal conductivity and thickness of the material. If the R-value is higher, the material can better insulate against heat transfer. Polyurethane foam insulation has the highest R-value than any other insulation materials.

  • Versatility

Polyurethane Foam Insulation has high insulating properties which helps designers and architects gain more flexibility in the building design. As it is extremely versatile, polyurethane insulation can be sprayed onto almost any surface, including complex interior spaces. When properly sprayed, polyurethane insulation protects structural framing to improve performance and durability all while forming an airtight seal to prevent leaks.

  • Blocks Air and Moisture

By providing seamless insulation, polyurethane foam makes your building more airtight and waterproof. Polyurethane foam does not leave gaps between the substrate and the insulation, acting as a barrier to air and moisture. When itis used as exterior insulation, you do not need to install house wrap between your exterior walls and drywall.

  • Good Dimensional Stability

Several insulation materials, including cellulose and mineral wool, tend to settle or sag over time, causing thermal bridges in areas with insufficient insulation and making the building vulnerable to heat loss. However, polyurethane insulation has exceptional dimensional stability. Once applied, its volume will neither increase nor decrease, regardless of the conditions it is exposed to.
All of these valuable benefits make polyurethane foam insulation an excellent choice for your commercial property.Looking for the best commercial foam roofing in Southern California?

Why Spray Foam Roofing Is the Best Roofing System

Posted on August 16th, 2021 by Applied Roofing Services

Though there are plenty of roofing systems to choose from for your commercial property, a spray foam roofing system is one solution that offers ultimate protection against the weather while being durable and environment-friendly.

What Is Spray Polyurethane Foam Roofing System?

Spray polyurethane foam is manufactured by mixing two highly reactive chemicals- isocyanate and polyol. These chemicals are sprayed in a liquid form that expands into foam, creating a solid, lightweight, and waterproof roofing membrane.

Reasons Why Foam Roofing Is the Top Go-to Roofing System

  • Easy to Maintain

With spray foam roofing, you can easily monitor damages, such as cracks and holes, and easily fix them with caulking. However, for major repairs, it is best to get professional help.

  • Energy-efficient

The spray foam roofing system’s R-value (resistance to heat flow) is high, about R-6 to R-7 per inch of the roofing system. This means it will save 30% more of your heating and cooling costs than the traditional roofing system.

  • Reduced Leakages

Spray foam roofing systems present fewer leaks than traditional ones because of almost negligible seams and gaps. The entire roofing system is impenetrable to water, which, in the long run, can save you more money and time lost in repairs.

  • Weather-resistant

The foam roofing system is durable and resistant against extreme weather conditions, including harsh snow, strong winds, etc. Also, any damages caused by the weather can be easily fixed.

  • Environmentally-friendly

There is hardly any waste generated with a spray foam roofing system, and it is not necessary to replace the roof. Only minor repairs and maintenance are required to keep this roof in good condition.

How Spray Foam Roofing Systems Benefit Commercial Buildings

  • Seals the Roof Effectively

Using a sealant that creates hairline cracks over time will cause water to enter your building, trapping moisture and promoting mold infestations. With a spray foam roofing system, you do not have to worry about such leaks, as the material will expand and fill up all the nooks and crannies of your roof.

  • Improves Insulation and Promotes Energy-Efficiency

A spray foam roofing system increases your building’s insulating capacity. It contains suspended aluminum particles that are good at reflecting harmful UV rays and help maintain an optimum indoor temperature. Thus, it will keep your building cooler in summer and warmer in winter, improving your energy efficiency and reducing your utility bills.

  • Increases Lifespan of the Roof

Once the foam roofing sets and dries, it will strengthen to become one of the most resilient roofing systems that can withstand extreme weather conditions. You can also install a foam roofing system on your existing roof to increase its lifespan.

Why Choose Us for Spray Foam Roofing for Your Commercial Properties?

The spray foam roofing system is undoubtedly the best solution for your commercial property due to its high energy efficiency, extensive protection, and durability. However, proper installation is required to ensure top-notch performance. Therefore, you should consider hiring a commercial roofing contractor for installation.

At Applied Roofing Services, our experts have years of experience in the commercial roofing industry. As a result, we can install the best spray foam roofing system for your commercial property in an efficient and non-intrusive manner.
