1. Energy Efficient
SPF delivers the highest level of insulation against air and moisture. It is also the perfect thermal barrier. Of all types of roofing and wall insulation it has the highest R-value per inch (5.0-8.0 per inch). Numerous studies have shown that your ROI on spray foam can happen in as little as five years or less in energy cost reduction.
One of the best features of spray foam is that it expands and contracts with the changing temperatures. This characteristic gives it unparalleled durability. Contractor’s can install spray foam in almost any climate or harsh environment and it will hold up well. You’ll never have to worry about cracking or splitting in the membrane.
3. A Seamless Surface
Roofing companies apply SPF as a liquid through a high pressure spray gun. Once the liquid lands on a surface it expands to cover the entire roof over a large area. This method provides a seamless membrane that fills in cracks, holes, corners, and along the base of the roof. Spray foam has no seams, so there is less chance for water to leak through. It is a solid barrier that protect your roof from moisture and air.
4. Environmentally Friendly
Polyurethane spray foam is an eco-friendly alternative to other roofing materials that harm the environment. It does not produce waste during installation. This means, that you will only use what you need to get the job done with no leftovers or scraps. With proper maintenance, you can also recycle the membrane when the time comes for replacement many years down the road. SPF features zero ozone depletion potential (ODP), ultra-low global warming potential (GWP) and solvent-free silicone coatings.
5. A Seamless Surface
No matter what state or city you live in, SPF is the perfect product for meeting all residential and commercial building codes. This feature is especially beneficial in metropolitan areas where building codes are more strict. SPF will surpass all fire codes, insulation codes, and energy-efficiency codes.
