Spray foam roofing SPF, our ECO-Roof
This progression is of a renovation using polyurethane spray foam and silicone coating.
Add pitch to that flat roofSpray foam is also a superior roofing material when it comes to installing over a flat area, as installers can taper the roofing system with one material rather than involving several. SPF can also be spray-applied to penetrations and vertical wall terminations, making them integral components avoiding known leak points.
A Protective, Monolithic Solid Roof Shell Derived from Liquid FoamUsing plural-component spray equipment, spray foam is applied as a liquid, which expands approximately 30 times its original liquid volume to form a hard, closed-cell monolithic roof surface that fills all cracks and crevices.
After it is applied to the roof surface, spray foam cures in a few seconds. While it completely adheres to the substrate, its expansion results in a weather-tight roofing membrane. Spray foam is frequently utilized in remedial applications and adds little additional weight to the structure, given polyurethanes low mass. A layer of protective elastomeric coating or gravel, which promotes a weather-resistant, durable, and protective surface that can be walked on for normal maintenance, is applied on top of the spray foam after the SPF has been applied to its finish specifications and proper thickness. With 35 years as a maintainable roofing medium that adds excellent insulation value to building structures, spray polyurethane foam has a long history of energy efficiency that can be reflected in low utility bills.
Durability, walkable or Solar roof approved.A spray foam roof quickly dispels the preconceived notion that a foam roof is made up of soft foam, quite the contrary, SPF roofs are very durable and can handle construction and foot traffic well. R-Value from Density $ High density in SPF means a higher R-value and increased strength, that is 3 lb. in density has an R-value of 7.14 when installed. SPF combined with a cool Roof Coating can reduce your cooling cost by up to 50%!!!
LifespanThe lifespan of an SPF roof can be long, as long as the coating protecting the SPF is properly maintained. Depending on the amount of coating installed, the roof should be cleaned, primed, and recoated every 15 to 20 years. A quality SPF roof can last 50 years or longer if this is done.
No Seams = (No Leaks!)Spray polyurethane foam applied to the roof surface creates a seamless system, in which the seams that would otherwise allow water and air infiltration from the roof into the building are closed up. Having a seamless system also eliminates ice damming during the winter season and spray foam also builds up the roof to eliminate any water pooling and ponding on the roof that can cause significant weight on the roof and cause it to fail over time. Spray foam is a self-flashing system, which eliminates leaks that are typically seen with other products. When applied, spray foam conforms to the roof substrate, so it flashes mechanical equipment, skylights, and parapet walls.
Spray Foam Roofs Protective CoatingsA protective layer, whether it is gravel or an elastomeric coating, is applied after the SPF has been applied to its finish specifications and proper thickness. The protective layer can be walked on for regular maintenance and it gives the roof a durable, weather-resistant surface.
A Lightweight SystemConsider the average weight of traditional roof insulation for conventional built-up roof systems it is nearly three pounds per cubic foot, whereas an inch of spray polyurethane foam weighs approximately 60 pounds per 100 square feet. A spray foam roofing system is roughly 10 percent of what a conventional built-up roofing system (600 pounds per 100 square feet). This makes the spray foam roof easy to maintain.
