SPF and Tri-Thermal Roofing: Which to Use For Your Property?
Spray polyurethane foam is a highly-dependable roofing material for improving insulations and serving as roofs with enough durability to withstand hailstorms, snowstorms, and rainstorms. However, you can use tri-thermal roofing systems to take your commercial roofing protection to the next level. It involves using two or three roofing material layers to achieve outstanding results.
As with all roofing materials, each of them has their respective pros and cons. Let’s learn more about each of them below.
What is Spray Polyurethane Foam?
Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) is a type of material that can be sprayed as roofs, cladding, or insulation for properties. The foam is made from two components – polyurethane and isocyanate. When these two components are mixed together, they produce a gas that expands to fill the cavity. This gas then hardens to form a solid mass that insulates the home.
As spray polyurethane foam is sprayed, it expands and fills up any open areas in the walls or ceiling. It then hardens to form an insulating barrier that prevents heat from escaping your home during winter and coming in during summer.
Easy to Use
Spray polyurethane foam is a quick, easy-to-use, environmentally friendly product, and perfect for cladding, roofing, and insulating. It can be used as insulation layer, vapor barrier, or sealant.
An experienced team of SPF applicators can conduct speedy installations of commercial roofing than traditional PVC, TPO, and PVC. Without adhesion or torching, applicators can install SPF in less than a day and wait for it to adhere in 2-3 days.
SPF can live up to 30 years and requires recoating and maintenance only after 4 years. Plus, it’s easy to remove and reapply a new layer of SPF that can extend the roofing material’s lifespan and improve its performance.
What is Tri-Thermal Roofing?
This roofing system combines SPF with another single-ply roofing material, such as PVC, TPO, and EPDM. Its installation process involves an SPF application to introduce better insulation and roofing protection before installing two of the three roofing materials above the SPF layer. Doing this helps properties achieve optimal commercial roofing with excellent insulation and long-term performance.
Triple Roofing System
Using three types of roofing materials can be expensive, but the triple roofing system provides excellent insulation, hailstorm protection, and fireproofing, despite its cumbersome mass.
Choose Between PVC, TPO, or EPDM
Traditional single-ply flat roofing materials, such as PVC, TPO, and EPDM, combines their capabilities and dependabilities with SPF. In case of damage, SPF can step up to the needed task until the repair or replacement of the single-ply roofing material.
Air and Watertight Systems
Tri-thermal roofing systems enhance the air and watertight systems of SPF, ensuring exceptional insulation and top-notch performance for 20-30 years. In addition, removing and recoating SPF and installing a single-ply roofing layer will take another 2-3 days to a week at most.
