Benefits of Foam Roofing for Your Commercial Roof
An increasingly large number of business owners and contractors have started to recognize the benefits of foam roofing. As a result, foam roofing is gaining popularity as one of the best options for flat roofs. In this article, we are going to cover some of its most prominent benefits in comparison to other commercial roofing choices.
What Is Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) Roofing?
Foam roofing consists of high-density, closed-cell polymeric foam that has an elastomeric coating. Once it is applied, it binds to the roof and transforms into a solid and hard-wearing surface that allows for walking.
Spray foam forms a seamless, protective barrier that insulates and waterproofs your roof, eliminating the possibility for water to penetrate through vents, pipes, and other protrusions.
Thanks to its high “R” value (resistance to heat flow), which is further enhanced through the use of roof coatings, foam roofing can significantly reduce the effects of thermal shock on the structure of a building.
Benefits of Foam Roofing
Reducing Energy Bills
Foam roofing is an affordable and cost-effective roofing option. It contains tiny aluminum particles that reflect the sun’s UV rays and give the foam top-grade insulating properties. It a great choice for reducing energy-consumption, making a building more energy-efficient, and reducing the overall workload on the HVAC system.
This is particularly important for building owners, facility managers, and contractors who need to meet strict state and municipality codes surrounding sustainability, and at the same time accommodate the increasing energy demand.
Foam roofing is most often applied to flat roofs, but it can also be used with sloped and dome roofs. It works equally well with metal, wood and concrete roofing, regardless of whether they’re new or old. This eliminates the need for tearing off the old roof and thus reduces overall roofing costs.
Closed-cell polyurethane foam is by far the best water insulator on the market. It is actually the only insulating material that doesn’t soak up water, but rather repels it. Once it seals the whole roof, there is virtually no place for the water to get in and leaks become a thing of the past.
Preserving structural integrity
Polyurethane foam can endure the strain of normal expansion and contraction of a building’s structure. It remains sealed and adhered under all conditions, protecting the building from outside elements including winds, sunshine, rain, and hail.

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.
