Can you walk on foam roofing?

Foam has a compressive strength of 60lbs per square inch. Not only can you walk on it, but you can run on it and jump on it as well. So yes, you can walk on foam roofs to service any of your equipment.

Is foam roofing difficult to repair?

Most minor foam repairs can be fixed with urethane caulk. The urethane caulk bonds to the urethane foam forming a permanent moisture barrier. That’s it!!

Is foam roofing expensive to repair?

If repairs are needed and are not covered under warranty, (example: Tenant Improvements, etc…) we will come out and repair roof for standard maintenance call, which costs $250 – $800 unless an emergency call is needed.

Can water be absorbed by the foam?

Foam is a closed cell product and will not absorb water. Ask your salesman for a sample and see for yourself.

Why is SPF Energy Efficient?

Polyurethane foams have one of the highest insulating R-values per inch of all the available products on the market today. With typical values ranging from 6.0 to 7.0 per inch, it is possible to maximize efficiency, increase space utilization and reduce operating costs, while having thinner walls and a lower profile roofs.

Studies show that increasing the thickness of your roof insulation by 1″ or more above the ASHRAE required thickness significantly reduces your energy costs.

Energy studies performed by Texas A & M on their own roofs show the energy cost reductions obtained by applying SPF to more than 8 million square feet of roofing paid for the cost of the retrofit in a little over three years.

Cool roofs (using reflective plastic coverings over SPF insulated roofs) bounce sunlight and radiant heat away from a building, helping the structure stay cool and reducing energy use for cooling.

Foam roofing produces energy savings of 30% or greater when compared to the alternative roofing systems. The cost of the roof can be easily recovered in under 5 years, simply through these energy savings alone!
