Benefits Of SPF Roofing Systems:
Spray polyurethane foam roofs (SPF) form a seamless roofing system. This means it has no joints or seams that often allow outside water and air to pass through the roofing system into the building structure.
Because a spray foam roof conforms to the substrate when installed, this seamless system is ideal for flashing parapet walls, equipment, skylights, and cooling towers. Many roof leaks are caused by faulty flashing, and spray foam roofs solves this problem.
In re-roofing applications, ponding water may be eliminated by adding an increased thickness of roof insulation, called spray foam, in low areas. Building up the low areas and sloping the roof so that it drains properly will eliminate ponding water. It will also help reduce additional weight load caused by this water accumulation.
The weight of roof insulation is around 3 pounds per cubic foot. One inch of polyurethane foam roofing weighs approximately 60 pounds per 100 square feet. This is considerably less when compared to approximately 600 pounds per 100 square feet for a conventional, four-ply, built-up roofing system. This makes a spray foam roof system ideal for re-roofing, as it is possible to apply over an existing built-up roof without removing it.
Spray Foam Roofs have the Highest “R” Value
enabling it to provide more thermal resistance with less material than any other roof insulation. In most cases, a spray polyurethane foam roof will pay for itself in 5-8 years in energy savings.
Spray foam for roof insulation is inert, this type of roof insulation will be protected from sunlight by a U.V. resistant elastomeric roof coating system i.e. silicone or acrylic. A spray foam roof is odorless; resists attack by either mildew or fungi and has no nutritional value. There are no bad odors for you or your neighbors while spray foam roofing is being applied.
Due to characteristic such as being seamless, having a high “R” value, and being protected by a white elastomeric coating, spray foam roofing is able to greatly reduce the effects of thermal shock on a structure.
Spray foam roofs can be used on both new construction, as well as to replace old roofs. Spray foam can be applied to flat, pitched, saw-toothed, and domed or having unusual slopes or configurations. Spray foam is also an ideal spray application for tanks, freezers, coolers, piping, ductwork and various other odd jobs.
While spray foam roofs are very lightweight, spray on roofs are also strong and will not pack down or sag.
Foam Roofs are Flexible
Spray on roofs withstand normal expansion and contraction without affecting the ability to keep the structure protected from the outside elements.
Spray foam roofs are composed of billions of closed cells which resist the penetration of water and vapors. It must, however, be protected by an elastomeric roof coating or crushed rock for use in an outdoor environment.
The elastomeric roof coating system, which protects the spray roof insulation, can be rejuvenated by the re-application of additional roof coatings. This doesn’t take place until the initial coatings system has weathered after many years of service. The normal wear of a quality coating has a life span of about 15-20 years.
A spray foam roof system can be applied in a relatively short period with little or no disruption of building operations. This is due to little or no tear off of the existing roof, and little manpower needed to apply the spray foam roof. PPS/Colorado Coatings Inc.. staff are manufacturer trained and certified.
Minor repairs or modifications to a spray foam roof system can be made by in-house maintenance personnel at minimal costnt
