Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) is a process created in the early 1960’s that combines polyurethane and polyethylene to create a unique foam insulation for both commercial and residential roofing applications.
The liquid is sprayed onto roofs, where it expands and creates a solid, durable, lightweight, and protective foam covering. Spray foam roofing is also an excellent at preventing moisture and heat transfer making for a very energy-efficient solution.
Though an SPF roof may cost more than a standard one, it typically makes up for it over the long run when you calculate all the superior energy efficiency provided over its lifespan.
SPF roofing systems can be used in most any climates and when properly installed and maintained, these foam roofs can easily outlast those using other materials such as shingles for example.
Because foam is lighter than other types of roofing materials, it’s also less susceptible to wind damage. Since it will stay cooler than most other materials on hot days, it’s bound to lower your overall energy bills.
