Polyurethane Foam has a history of more than 35 years as a maintainable roofing medium. Polyurethane Foam adds excellent insulation value to the structure and your utility bills will reflect the difference.
Sprayed Polyurethane Foam is applied as a liquid using plural-component spray equipment to fill cracks and crevices. It then expands approximately 30 times its original liquid volume to form a hard, closed cell monolithic roof surface.
The Polyurethane Foam dries within seconds after applied to the roof surface. Its expansion results in a weather-tight roofing membrane that is fully adhered to the substrate. Because polyurethane is lightweight it adds little additional weight to the structure and is often used in remedial applications.
Our Spray Polyurethane roofs receive recognition by The Cool Roof Rating Council. As an independent, non-profit organization that maintains a third-party rating system. They determine "coolness" by measuring both solar reflectance and thermal emittance. Our SPF roofs refract up to 90% of the suns rays, making it a "Cool Roof".
Spray Polyurethane Foam offers the highest thermal resistance “R Value” of any conventional insulation or roofing material. When applied above the substrate, this roofing system reduces thermal expansion, contractions, and helps eliminate underside condensation, thereby eliminating thermal shorts. Thermal shorts come from screws and nails that are used to fasten down traditional roofs that protrude through the roofing membrane and decking.
Spray Foam Roofing Systems form a seamless bond to the substrate whether it is horizontal or vertical. There are no seams to leak or allow water to travel lateral through the system. If a leak does occur it is much easier to locate than an old fashioned roof.
ENERGY STAR qualified roof coating products reduce the amount of air conditioning needed in buildings, and can reduce energy bills by up to 50%. The Cool Roof Program defines certain standards for reflectivity, and maintenance of reflectivity in roof coating systems. These light colored roof coatings reflect the suns heat and UV rays and often lower the temperature of the roof by up to 100 degrees.
