Spray Polyurethane Foam Roofing Contractors

In today's buildings industry, there is a growing desire to provide owners with durable, long-lasting roofing systems that combine high energy performance with low maintenance costs. From that desire, a renewed interest in SPF roofing systems has risen. SPF roofing systems have been around for more than 40 years; however, there is still a significant lack of knowledge among many roofing professionals on how to specify, install, or maintain these systems. Our contractors, based in Milwaukee, work nationwide on installing SPF and other fluid-applied systems.

What is SPF Roofing?

Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) roofing consists of an application of specifically designed foam covered with an elastomeric coating (typically acrylic, silicone, or polyurethane) or aggregate covering to protect the foam from ultraviolet rays. Specialized equipment mixes two liquid components at the spray gun that applies the SPF to a prepared substrate. The mixed liquid expands many times its original volume in a matter of seconds, forming a rigid foam plastic that chemically bonds to the surface to which it is sprayed.

Benefits of Spray Foam Roofing:

  • Long Lifetime
  • Flexibility in Thickness
  • Adaptable to Substrates
  • Water-Resistant
  • Ability to Have UV-resistant Top Coats

Commercial & Residential Spray Foam Roofing

Based on surveys of over 300 SPF roofing systems, Dr. Rene Dupuis of Structural Research Inc. concluded SPF roofs have an effective service life of more than 30 years. The research also shows that the physical properties of the foam change very little with age. Because of the energy-saving characteristics and low maintenance costs of SPF roof systems, these roofs are suited to companies or organizations that own their own buildings and must pay their own energy and maintenance costs.

When to Use Spray Foam Roofing?

Although SPF is installed very successfully in all 50 states throughout the country, the perfect climate would be warm and dry with little wind. Extreme temperatures can make installation difficult. It is the contractor's responsibility to know under what conditions they can spray and when to stop.

Spray foam roofing is also perfect for:

  • Additional Insulation
  • Severe Temperatures
  • Roof Substrate with Numerous Penetrations
  • Unusual Roof Deck Configuration
  • High Wind Conditions
  • Lightweight Material Requirements
  • Sloped Drainage Needs
  • Adhesion to substrates (BUR, modified bitumen, concrete, shingles, etc)

SPF roofing systems are often used as a recovery system over existing roofs without tear-off. So, the application of SPF roofing systems over existing roof coverings greatly reduces the amount of construction debris in landfills.
