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.

Pros and Cons of Roofing Systems with Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF)

Posted on June 27th, 2018 by Applied Roofing Services

Spray polyurethane foam roofing or (SPF) is a roofing system that is designed to offer the best in both weather protection and sustainability. An SPF roofing system has negligible drawbacks when compared to its utility and it is usually favorable for use on most types of buildings. It provides long-lasting results with minimal maintenance or repairs.

Pros of SPF Roofing

Spray foam roofing has many benefits that makes it a viable alternative to other roofing methods. A few benefits of SPF roofing to homeowners include:

  • Easy to Install – Professional SPF roofing involves easy and quick application of the foam and coating.

  • Control Potential Leaks – All the seams and grooves are sealed by the application of liquid SPF mixture to reduce the possibility of leaks.

  • Energy Efficient Alternative – Lower the energy cost during every season and help to maintain the internal temperatures of the building.

  • Easy to Maintain – Requires very minimal upkeep after installation and can prove to be a longstanding option with correct maintenance and semi-annual inspections.

  • Allows Waterproof Roofing – Polyurethane foam allows for leveling out the roof to reduce the possibility of damage due to water accumulation.

  • Offers Sustainable Roofing – SPF roofs are renewable and cost-effective as they produce no waste when the foam is re-applied because their application involves negligible stripping of old roofing.

  • Environmentally Friendly Option – Being free from ozone-depleting CFCs (Chlorofluorocarbons) and producing minimal VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds), SPF is environment-friendly.

Cons of SPF Roofing

Spray foam roofing also has its drawbacks. If you have questions, you should always bring them up to your contractor to make sure you still have the most accurate information possible. Drawbacks can include:

  • Chances of Overspray – The potential to overspray an area or the spray being carried by the wind onto other surfaces is always there.

  • Requires Annual Maintenance – SPF roofs must be inspected at least twice a year even if there is no apparent damage.

  • Needs Accurate Repairs – SPF roofs are extremely vulnerable to puncture and other types of damage; only certain types of materials can be used to make necessary repairs.

  • Has Limited Installation Window – Installation is determined by the weather, and extreme temperatures and moisture need to be avoided.

While weather and wind seem to be the determining factors when it comes to the drawbacks of SPF roofing, they are minimal when compared to the benefits.

SPF roofing offers distinct advantages over other roofing materials. Before you make a decision, however, make sure to talk to your roofing contractor to find out if it is a feasible option for your building. For many, it’s an investment that will pay itself off in both time and money.
