Why Spray Foam Roofing?
Spray foam insulation is known for its easy installation, lightweight and water-resistant durability, and energy-efficient benefits. These benefits are now available in a spray foam roofing and insulating base option. Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) is one of the best insulators on the market, and it can be used to extend the effectiveness, efficiency, and life span of your roof. Discover the advantages of using this type of roofing for your next project:
1. It provides a seamless moisture barrier.
Most roofing materials have a finite life span, and water damage usually requires roof replacement. In a typical roof, wooden decking gets covered by asphalt or tile shingles or metal panels. Each shingle creates a seam that can allow moisture to enter, even through multiple layers. Only SPF creates a seamless roof base, which means there are no joints or seams that can allow water or air to penetrate or pass through the building’s structure.
A spray on roof base conforms to the decking material when installed, so it’s ideal for flashing, skylights, cooling towers, and more. By providing a seamless barrier to moisture, you can extend the life of your roof compared to other roofing options.
2. Spray foam roofing and insulation is lightweight.
Traditional roofing insulation weighs around three pounds per cubic foot. By contrast, SPF weighs 60 pounds per 100 square feet. Since traditional roofing systems are 600 pounds per 100 square feet, SPF is a lighter and more durable option. In fact, SPF can be ideal for your re-roofing project because it’s light enough to install over the existing roof.
3. It’s more convenient than other roofing materials.
Installing a spray foam roof base takes a fraction of the time it takes to install traditional roofing insulation and presents little to no disruption to a home or business owner. Installers will not have to remove as much (if any) of the existing roof before applying SPF. The application requires little manpower and can be applied in various thicknesses. When you choose spray foam for your roofing project, rest assured that your job will be done quickly and with no interruption to your daily activities.
Spray foam roofs are durable, lightweight, convenient, and provide a seamless moisture barrier.
