SPF is used as a roofing material and a insulating material in walls and ceilings Spray Polyurethane Foam has been used as a roofing and insulation material for over 50 years. During this time, foam systems have proven themselves through comprehensive, independent studies to be dependable, long lasting, and very affordable. Today there are foam roofs that have been in place for decades, and by all appearances they should be able to last indefinitely as long as they are properly maintained.

 

Sprayed Polyurethane Foam is a combination of isocyanate and polyol. These two components are fed through a proportioner which heats then pumps the two separate components to the spray gun, where they are mixed and sprayed onto the substrate. Because it is sprayed onto the roof or wall as a liquid, it forms a single continuous structure that is seamless and very stable. A protective coating is required in roofing applications to protect the foam against the damaged caused by UV rays which is typically sprayed on as well.

 

     

 

Advantages over traditional roofing methods Seamless- Sprayed polyurethane foam forms a seamless insulated roofing system. It has no joint seams that often allow outside water and air to pass through the roofing system into the building structure. Whether a roof is 10,000 square feet, 100,000 square feet or larger in size it will have NO SEAMS.

Eliminates Flashing Leaks-Because sprayed polyurethane foam conforms to the substrate and when installed, is a seamless system, it is ideal for flashing parapet walls, roof penetrations and roof mounted equipment, including vents, pipes, stacks, HVAC equipment, skylights, and cooling towers. Many roof leaks are caused by faulty flashings. SPF solves this problem.

Elimination of Ponding Water-In re-roofing applications, ponding water may be eliminated by adding an increased thickness of polyurethane foam in the low areas. Building up the low areas and sloping the roof so that it drains properly will eliminate ponding water and the additional load factor that is caused by water accumulation.

Highest R Value- SPF has an R value of 7.14 per one inch thickness, enabling it to provide more thermal resistance with less material than any other insulation.

Watertight- Polyurethane foam is made of billions of minute closed cells which resist the penetration of water and vapors.

 

       

 

Sprayed polyurethane foam has an R-value of 7.14 per 1 inch thickness, enabling it to provide more thermal resistance with less material than any other type of roofing or wall insulation on the market today.

 

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