What is Sprayed-on Polyurethane Foam(SPF)?

Sprayed-on Polyurethane Foam

SPF is used by Houston commercial roofing contractors is restore aging commercial roofing and metal  roofing reapir. High  density SPF is a two part system that is sprayed on as a liquid which expands 30 times and conforms to any type of roofing/building substrate. Within 2 minutes of application, the foam has cured enough to be walked upon. The 2.5-3.0 lb/cubic ft. Density foam feels like concrete and adds structural strength. However is flexible enough to expand and contract with the building. The closed cell formation is waterproof within seconds of application. SPF has the highest insulation value in the construction industry, R-factor 7.14 per inch. This insulation value is such a good investment that it will pay for itself within the 10 year warranty period

Other Advantages of SPF:

  • Seamless: There are no joints, seams, or fittings that could loosen and cause leaks.
  • Totally Adhered: The SPF is 100% adhered to the building, which makes it hurricane proof.
  • Self-Flashing: Unlike most roofing which uses several types of materials for the flashing area, SPF can be extended up to a wall, around or over protrusions and over an edge to provide a continuous waterproof, windproof barrier.
  • Eliminates Ponding Water: Extra foam is applied in low areas on re-rooting projects to help reduce the extra weight of ponding water.
  • Easy Maintenance: Minor repairs can be easily made using a tube of caulk and a caulking gun.
  • Environmentally Friendly: Existing roofs don’t have to be torn off, they are just sprayed directly over, thereby causing less waste for landfills. The chemicals we use for SPF contain no HCFC’s which are potentially damaging to the ozone layer. Existing SPF roofs don’t have to be torn off, they can be re-coated, which will extend the life of the SPF another 10-20 years. Polyurethane Foam is furnished by two companies, American WeatherStar, and Conklin. The foam is top-coated to prevent Ultraviolet degradation.

Warranties

The manufacturers give 10 and 20 year warranties, depending on the thickness of the coating. With regular mainteniance the roof can last a lifetime.
