As a building owner, you want to make good investments in the property. If you're concerned about your roof's current repair and maintenance costs, it might be time to look into spray foam roofing as a replacement. This type of roof offers many benefits, so here are a few reasons to consider an upgrade. 

What Is Spray Foam Roofing?

Spray foam consists of two chemicals, polyol resin and isocyanate, which are mixed and heated within specialized hoses. Once combined, the chemicals are sprayed directly onto the roofing system, where they expand and harden. Spray foam typically reaches a height of about 1.5 inches after installation, but the width is customized according to the specific roof.

Once applied to the roofing system, it's covered in a layer of silicone to protect the foam against UV exposure. Small granules are also added to enhance traction on the roof and ensure safety for maintenance personnel and staff. 

Spray foam can be used on a wide range of roofing systems, including modified bitumen, EPDM, and TPO. With TPO, a cover board is needed to ensure the foam properly adheres to the surface, which tends to be slick. 

What Benefits Does It Offer Building Owners?

Spray foam has a good R-value, which measures a material's resistance to heat transfer. A higher R-value means improved energy efficiency in buildings, which ensures comfort and cost-savings on HVAC costs. The material is also easy to install, as it's not usually necessary to tear off the existing roof when making an upgrade. 

When it comes to features like skylights and vents, spray foam prevents water intrusion. That means the roof will no longer require flashing, a metal installed around the roof to keep water out. If the foam is damaged, that area can be removed and reinstalled without disrupting the rest of the roof.
