For a flat or commercial roof, there is no better roofing solution than a spray polyurethane foam roofing system. Roofing spray foam conforms to the roof surface with a strong bond that provides a seamless monolithic system and contains no thermal shorts. It provides a greater insulation factor with an R-value of 6.3 per inch, an unsurpassed air-barrier, increased structural stability, and requires less time to install. A spray foam roofing system has an effective lifespan that can exceed 30 years and has the lowest lifecycle cost over other conventional roofing systems.
From wall-to-wall spray foam provides a seamless roof install with no mechanical fasteners, providing the building with an unsurpassed air barrier and increased thermal resistance. Spray foam also provides self flashing around HVAC curbs, vents, and skylights, adding additional protection against moisture and air infiltration.
Spray foam roofing systems provide low maintenance costs, long service life, reduction in energy bills, and is the only roofing system that pays for itself.
