Additional Information On SPF Roofing

Learn why SPF roofing is the best option for creating highly efficient insulation and weatherproofing roof on your commercial or industrial building.

Why choose An SPF (Spray Polyurethane Foam) ROOF:

  • An SPF roof has no seams that can fail, no fasteners to penetrate your deck, seals all penetrations making it the most dependable waterproofing available today.
  • SPF roofing can be applied directly over most common existing roofing materials; Built-Up-Roofing, EPDM Rubber, Metal Roofing, Modified Bitumen (torch applied), Concrete and Wood roofing without the need for removals in most instances saving landfill costs.
  • Spray polyurethane foam provides the highest R-Value of any commercial insulation product available today at an R-7.0 per inch of foam!  Polyurethane foam is listed as a "GREEN" building material by the Green Building Materials Council.
  • Most companies realize an energy savings of 30% to 50% of their energy costs with a polyurethane foam roof and the energy savings alone can pay for the roofing installation in as little as 4-7 years!
  • An SPF roof will last the life of the building with simple maintenance and by re-coating the roof approximately every 20 years!  When the roof is re-coated a new roof warranty can be issued to the owner.  No other roofing system can offer this benefit.
  • Spray foam roofing weighs less than 1/2 lb. per square foot at 1-1/2" thick reducing the weight load on your walls and beams.  Although lightweight, foam has an extremely high strength-to-weight ratio which will add structural strength to most commercial and pre-engineered metal buildings.

Additional Advantages to SPF Roofing: 

  • All completed roofing projects are inspected by an independent, third-party inspection firm to ensure we meet the manufacturer's installation specifications and to verify what we promised we would provide to you in our quote.
  • Spray foam reduces the "Thermal Shock" syndrome that occurs in most buildings by reducing the expansion and contraction of your existing roof deck and structural support which is the leading cause of roof failures.
  • Additional foam can be sprayed in "low" roof areas where water is "ponding" to provide a positive water flow to the drains.
  • SPF roofing is rated and approved by all major code authorities.  It is listed as a UL-790 Class "A" rated roof over non-combustible roof decks, and Class "B" over combustible decking. Foam roofs also carry FM approvals of up to I-120 wind uplift resistance (120 MPH winds when applied direct-to-decking!)
