5 Reasons It’s Important To Use Spray Polyurethane Foam Roofing
Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) roofing is gaining fame for many commercial property owners. It is fast, efficient, and safe to use. Even if you’re short on time replacing your old roof before winter comes, you will get an excellent outcome if you consider using SPF roofs.
True enough, SPF has its dangers, but professional installations and executions by renowned SPF applicators, such as us at Ener Spray, guarantee only the best results for all your projects. Here are five compelling reasons it’s time for you to switch from your old roof to spray polyurethane foam roofing.
Fast and Easy Installation
Labor makes up about 30% of the total installation cost of most roofing materials. Furthermore, labor time can extend itself depending on the roofing material you’ll use as your roof. With SPF applications, you have a fixed amount of labor time, especially when you’re working with reputable professionals with in-depth experience and proper equipment.
SPF applications sound simple: applicators spray liquid on the existing roof. The solution expands into foam as it dries and cures. In doing so, it adapts to all kinds of roof shapes and sizes, doing so the fastest to flat and low-slope commercial roofs.
Improved Insulation and Energy Efficiency
Single-ply commercial roofing is highly effective because it is affordable. However, it offers seamless insulation and energy efficiency at the same time. Unfortunately, they can tear quickly, and commercial property owners have no recourse when it comes to repairs.
Fortunately, SPF roofing provides the same level of insulation and energy efficiency as a commercial flat roofing. However, SPF can last for over 50 years with careful maintenance — 30 years further than single-ply roofing such as TPO, PVC, and EPDM. It only requires affordable inspections and maintenance services twice a year.
Seamless, Waterproof, and Leakproof
For most commercial roofs, seams and penetrations become the significant sources of leaking. SPF membranes installed over your old commercial roofs can plug holes, fill seams, and remove gaps. In doing so, your property’s insulation improves, and you get a waterproof, airtight seal that guarantees the best defense against heavy rain and snowstorms.
Furthermore, SPF applicators can level out your roof to address areas where water tends to pond. This process ensures your roof will have no standing water and improves its lifespan and capability.
Minimal Maintenance Required
Once your SPF application is finished, and the foam has begun to dry and cure, your SPF roof can last for over 50 years with minimal, twice-yearly maintenance. Most SPF applicators will often advise silicon recoating, which requires no material tear-off and only an over-top application that guarantees no invasive deconstruction and structural damage to your property.
Renewable and Easily Replaceable
SPF is a material that guarantees zero-waste in its life cycle. It doesn’t need stripping once it has reached the end of its life. Applicators will only install the new SPF roof on top. Furthermore, it has zero chemicals that endanger the ozone layer, low volatile organic compound (VOC)s, no chlorofluorocarbons (CFC), and has meager global warming potential.
