SPF roofing, also known as foam roofing, is not a new face to the commercial roofing world. However, new innovations have increased the reliability, durability, and lifespan of this roofing system. But, your commercial roof is a substantial investment, and just like any roofing system, SPF roofing has both advantages and drawbacks. Discuss your options with a professional roofing team to ensure you get the ideal material for your needs.
Benefits of a Foam Roof
SPF (spray polyurethane) roofs are known for their resiliency and long life. This lightweight roof solution provides superior protection from UV rays, making it a great cool roof solution, and its seamless spray application provides a completely waterproof seal when correctly applied. This durable roof system offers unrivaled protection from impact and weather, and even provides a reinforced layer of insulation.
Drawbacks of Foam
SPF roofing can be a superior choice for your roofing system. However, there are a few considerations that can create big problems for this style of roofing material. Temperature and humidity levels are very important when applying this material, and warm, dry weather with no wind is the only way to get an ideal adhesion. This roofing material also requires extensive roof prepped although it can be placed over your current roofing material. Old, worn, or frayed material, dirt, and other loose fragments must be completely removed in order for the SPF roof to form the correct bond. This roof should always be applied by an experienced roofing team to ensure that it’s even and uniform to prevent later water wear and degradation.
