5 Major Reasons to Invest in Spray Foam Roofing

Spray polyurethane foam roofing is an excellent choice for property owners because it is durable, easy to apply, and has a low environmental impact.

Unlike single-ply roofing materials, which are made of multiple layers of old fiberglass or asphalt, spray polyurethane foam roofing is the application of a single layer of foam insulation backed by a material called polyisocyanurate, which can be recycled.

Here are five other reasons to invest in SPF roofing.

Quick-To-Apply Roof Coatings

Spray polyurethane foam is easy to install on a roof because it can be sprayed on in layers, which makes it easier to apply than other types of coatings such as tar. It also requires less preparation and cleanup time than other types of coatings.

One great advantage of the quick curing time of SPF materials is property owners having a new roof within one or two days. SPF cures in a normal warm summer within 24-48 hours, which is faster than the week or more curing time that some roofs have.

Long-Term Lifespan

Many ingredients and materials used in manufacturing greatly contribute to the long-term performance of spray polyurethane foam. Most manufacturers keep their formulas under lock and key, but it’s easy to see that their materials exhibit excellent resistance to moisture, heat, and humidity and are impermeable to water.

Ener-Spray uses Ecodur 201, which is self-leveling polyurethane foam. It is typically used for roof insulation, wall insulation, and spray foam insulation. It is also used for insulating pipes, sound barriers, and foundations.

Fully Regulated Applicators

Canada regulates its spray polyurethane foam installation and application teams by requiring them to have a license as well as a provincial certificate of competence before they can begin work.

Canada also requires that the spray polyurethane foam installation and application team members be trained.

In order to obtain a provincial certificate of competence, the team must make sure that their members have passed a provincial examination as well as been trained by a provincial training institution.

The provincial training institution for spray polyurethane foam applicators provides the necessary skills and knowledge to become a certified SPF applicator.

High-Quality and Affordable Fireproofing

SPF is one of the best and most affordable fireproofing materials in existence because it is easy to spray and has tried-and-proven fireproofing capabilities. It has an R-value of 3.2 and can resist fire up to 725°F for one hour. This material can help stop the spread of fires that can begin and spread from a single room.

Restores Your Aged Metal Roofs

Spray polyurethane foam has been proven to be able to restore aged metal roofing materials such as steel and aluminum, making them stronger and more durable than ever before. It creates a layer of insulation and is waterproof.

SPF starts off as a semi-viscous liquid that creeps into the small cracks and cavities of your aged roofing material. In doing so, it will fill these gaps, restoring your metal roof to its full functionality. The combination of manageable weight and massive density of SPF makes it an excellent material that extends your roof’s durability in the coming decades.
