Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) Roofing

Spray Foam Roofing

Many homeowners adhere to the belief that the key factor in creating the most comfortable conditions is the insulation of the walls in each of the rooms. However, roofing plays a much greater role because it not only eliminates heat loss but also prevents the appearance of ice and icicles in winter, drowns out the sound of drops and hail, and also helps save money on energy costs.

When it comes to commercial building roofing, the best material is spray polyurethane foam. There are many myths hovering around this method, so today we will tell you all about the advantages of the SPF roofing system, reveal all the nuances regarding spray foam roofing cost, and also introduce a commercial roofing general contractor, which has a reputation as a reliable and executive company.

Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) Roofing: Core Info

Polyurethane has been increasingly used during the installation and repair of the roof in recent years. Due to this, the work is carried out quickly, and you get an almost seamless coating with a good level of waterproofing.

There are two main types of spray foam for commercial roof construction, namely closed-cell and open-cell spray foam. The first type has an increased foam density and is waterproof, and roofing systems made of this material are the most insulated. The second type is very flexible and ductile, so it is ideal for roofing systems with hard-to-reach places, especially in attics.

The polyurethane roofing material is made up of polyester compounds with the addition of modern types of fillers (plasticizers). The experienced craftsmen of the Company "USASPRAYME" can install the spray foam roofing quickly and easily.

Spray Foam Roof Construction Features

The installation or repair of a sprayed roof is very labor-intensive. It requires professional knowledge and the use of special equipment and tools. In particular, we want to focus on spray foam machines. In addition to the fact that they are expensive, their management requires experience in creating spray foam roofs, and specialists from the USASPRAYME company have a solid background in this business.

Before starting work, it is crucial to carry out preparatory procedures and take into account a number of factors, e.g., the dimensions of the roofing material, because the thickness of the polyurethane coating depends on the roof load. Before laying, you must thoroughly clean the roof surface (you need to remove cracks, dirt, and dust). This preliminary stage is performed to prevent cracking. Then our specialists prepare the material and apply it to the roof surface using the mobile facilities. The equipment used operates under high pressure.

As you can see, spray foam roof construction is a task from the category of increased complexity. Only qualified builders with experience in a dozen spray foam roofing systems construction can complete it on 10 out of 10.

SPF roofing system: Advantages & Benefits

Each roofing system has pros and cons, and in most cases, each advantage has an equivalent disadvantage. Spray foam roof is an exception because this technology has several strengths with the prefix "top."

Let's analyze them in detail:

  1. Long service life

  2. Cost-efficiency

  3. Light weight

  4. Fire protection

  5. The comfort of use

  6. Fast and professional installation

  1. Long service life

Half a century. This is the service life of SPF roofing systems. Spray polyurethane foam is an incredibly resistant material to external stimuli, and in all nature, there is only one source that can disrupt its integrity, namely, ultraviolet radiation. Considering these points, we can say that with proper installation, the SPF roof system will last from 30 to 50 years, with the need for an update every 15 years.

  1. Cost-efficiency

You've probably heard stories about how much people invest in installing clay, slate, or metal roofs. However, spray polyurethane foam roofing has nothing to do with this scenario, as the usage of this conventional roofing material is a wise and cost-effective solution. Given the energy efficiency, low cost of installation work, ease of maintenance, and extremely long service life, it is not surprising that spray foam is at the heart of many commercial, industrial, and flat roofs.

  1. Light weight

The extremely intriguing pros of spray foam roofs lie in their architectural purpose. Compared to other roofing materials, SPF is very light, which means it does not put additional pressure on walls, piles, and foundations, which ultimately makes SPF roof a priority choice for those who want to reduce the chances of major repairs of the entire house in the near future.

  1. Fire protection

One of the key tasks of roofing materials is the participation in security provision, and what is the main threat associated with the word "roof"? Of course, there is a fire, and unlike silicone coating, the SPF roofing system has high fire protection rates. For this reason, this material is ideal for commercial roofing, as every homeowner wants to protect his family from this threat.

  1. The comfort of use

By choosing the spray foam roofing method, you are guaranteed to forget about all problems, such as water stains, traces of rodents, or the need for roof restoration. SPF roofs have no seams, which means they have perfect adhesion to the entire roof and exclude the possibility of leakage or penetration by insects. Moreover, the spray foam roofing system is 100% eco-friendly and does not harm both nature and house residents.

  1. Fast and professional installation

Unlike most roofing materials, spray polyurethane foam is extremely malleable to various operations, which means it will not be difficult for a professional roofing contractor such as USASPRAYME to equip an existing roof with SPF. 

The same applies to the operation of the SPF system, e.g., if the foam layer is depleted or peeled off over time, then it will be enough for you to use mastic or sealant to fix the situation.

Spray Foam Roofing Costs

If you ask us to answer in monosyllables regarding the price of SPF roof systems, the answer will be that the average price for spray foam roofing is in the range of $6 to $10+ per square foot. However, we should understand that the final price tag is formed based on a number of factors.

Here are some of them:

  • Spray foam type. In particular, the choice between closed-cell and open-cell spray foam.

  • The state of the existing roof. The emergency or unsuitable condition will require reconstruction before roofing.

  • Spray foam thickness. We can express this factor in terms of proportion; the greater the thickness, the higher the price.

  • Industrial or commercial roof area. The most consistent factor is that with each additional square foot, the price of the spray foam roofing system increases.

  • Roof architecture. Some roof systems are extremely difficult to access due to their architecture, which can complicate the installation process and, therefore, change the service price.

All these and many other factors affect the price per square foot of spray foam roofing mounting. In any case, we recommend you consult with specialists, and among all SPF roofing contractors, the best in this business are the masters from the USASPRAYME company.
