Why Choose Spray Polyurethane Foam For Your Roofing
For both commercial and residential roofing, traditional and flat roofing materials are always the primary choices of homeowners. However, modern solutions make it easier to install a new roof even on the ruins and damages of your old roof. Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) is a world-class roofing material capable of lasting for more than 30 years — about the same time as asphalt roofing shingles.
While they’re not as durable and long-lasting as metal roofs, SPF is a great alternative thanks to its cost efficiency and ease of application that takes less than three days to perform.
Spray polyurethane foam does not require you to tear off and replace your roof with new roofing materials. You won’t need to build new roofing joists and supports. However, you’ll definitely need professionals to perform SPF application that guarantees consistent thickness and adherence. In addition, your old roof will act as the supporting structure and the SPF adheres to its form completely. In doing so, it achieves the same structure and aesthetic as your old roof.
For commercial low-slope or flat roofs, you’ll enjoy reduced ponding thanks to its even, straight application. Before the SPF installation process, contractors such as us at Ener-Spray will even out the old roof’s slope and ensure the straight slope that guarantees zero ponding that leads rainwater straight to the drainage.
Recyclable, Environment Friendly
Any roofing material makes it a problem to repair, which is why roofing maintenance has become an important part of residential roofing. However, SPF roofs do not require roofing tear offs and replacements or parts removal during the repair phase. Contractors can quickly re-foam the area. First, contractors will scoop out and smoothen the affected area. Then, they’ll spray the polyurethane foam thereafter. In doing so, they achieve results without having to re-foam the roof.
SPF roofs are environmentally friendly. Because of their seamless nature, they can insulate buildings and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, SPF can reflect the Sun’s energy. This helps the local environment remain cool. The reduced carbon footprint of both residential and commercial properties thanks to SPF won’t only drive down costs, it can help save the environment.
Unlike traditional and artificial roofing materials, there is no risk of lift when you use SPF roofs. It wouldn’t create any lift against the material because of its seamless nature. SPF is also fireproof and does not require frequent maintenance.
Other environmental advantages include not having to replace materials and fill landfills with damaged and refused roofing materials. Asphalt shingle production reduction thanks to more SPF installations helps reduce petroleum consumption — the core material of asphalt shingles.
