We can usually avoid costly tear-offs in most cases. This is an ideal foam roofing system to restore and waterproof your commercial roof for years to come!
Foam Roofing System for commercial roofs in the United States
Installing a spray polyurethane foam roofing system or repairing your existing SPF commercial roof has many huge benefits. With the energy prices skyrocketing, every business owner is looking for ways to keep their energy costs lower. The foam roof insulation solution our contractors install will change your old roof from an energy-wasteful system into a clean “green” roofing system that will help keep energy costs down. In fact, the spray polyurethane foam roofing system can pay for itself in energy savings within 7 years!
Sprayed polyurethane foam roofing systems have been engineered to provide a superior energy-efficient, long-lasting roof for any building. Foam roofing offers excellent insulation value and a smooth, durable, seam-free barrier against the elements when coated with Conklin coating systems. Foam is so lightweight – about eight ounces per square foot – it can be applied over most existing roof systems without exceeding the structural load capacity. Yet it’s amazingly strong, easily withstanding light foot traffic and other weight requirements. SPF has a long history in the roofing and coatings market where SPF roofs have recorded service lives in excess of 40 years performing in spite of nature’s highly destructive elements.
Conklin’s foam roofing systems have met the most stringent requirements for a variety of industry groups, such as Factory Mutual, Underwriters’ Laboratories, and are recognized by the International Conference of Building Officials. No matter what system you choose, Conklin has you covered for years to come.

What customers have to say……
“Conklin’s spray foam roofing system minimized the messy tear-off and the high cost of material disposal at the local landfill. I’m happy with the successful roofing application and love the idea that I have the best and brightest roof in town.

The Texas A&M Testimonial
“In 1980, Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas began reroofing their facilities using polyurethane foam. Texas A&M kept careful records on the performance of their new roofing system and found they have reaped reductions in maintenance costs as well as decreased energy expenses. Now with over 7 million square feet of polyurethane foam in place, Texas A&M uses nothing else for new or remedial roofing.
For a number of years, Mr. Gerald Scott, P.E., was in charge of roofing and energy conservation within the Texas A&M Physical Plant Department. After achieving their main goal of preventing roof leaks, Mr. Scott began monitoring the energy savings of the sprayed polyurethane foam roofs (SPUF). Mr. Scott monitored the energy savings on 27 different buildings that had received a SPUF roof from 1980 to 1984. The results were astounding. TAMU was able to recover the complete cost of the roof application through energy savings in an average of four and one-half years.”
Quoted here is Mr. Scott’s conclusion which is shared by today’s Physical Plant Department:
“From the time of their construction, and throughout the life of the roof, built-up roofs were major maintenance and repair items. The experience that the Texas A&M University Physical Plant gained since 1974, when the program began, indicates that no major problem, and very few minor ones, exist in the polyurethane roof systems. As a result of this experience, all new construction includes the foamed polyurethane roof system. To date some 16 new facilities have this roof system totaling nearly one million square feet.”
Foam is ideal for going over any sound, dry commercial roof, such as…
- Gravel roofs
- Smooth built up roofs
- Metal roofs
- Fully adhered single ply roofs
Lower energy costs with spray foam roofing system!
Spray polyurethane foam roofing systems are excellent at insulating your building and sealing off airflow from escaping or entering the building. These systems are sprayed directly onto your rooftop (either as new construction or roof restoration) filling all cracks and openings on your roof to seal and prevent any heat loss to the building. The closed cell spray foam version is one of the highest yielding R-values in the industry, rated at 6-6.5 per inch thick.
