Benefits of Spray Foam Roofing
Spray foam roofing systems like those from Conklin provide many benefits to building owners. The two most prominent benefits are waterproofing/leak prevention and insulation value. Many additional benefits also exist such as superior compressive strength, lightweight, self-flashing, durable and long lasting.
Polyurethane Foam has a history of more than 35 years as a maintainable roofing medium. Polyurethane Foam adds excellent insulation value to the structure and utility bills can reflect the difference.
Let’s look at the advantages of Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) insulation like those offered by Conklin.
Benefits of Spray Foam Roofing Systems:
- Leak-free monolithic seal over your entire roof deck
- High insulation value
- Rapid payback with energy savings
- Strong adhesion and wind uplift resistance
- Weather resistant
- Lightweight and high strength
- UL and FM approved systems
Once the Sprayed foam roofing system has been applied to the proper thickness and finish specifications, a protective layer of elastomeric coating or gravel is applied. This protective layer produces a durable weather resistant surface and that can be walked on for normal maintenance.
Sprayed Polyurethane Foam (SPF) is applied as a liquid using plural-component spray equipment to fill cracks and crevices. It then expands approximately 30 times its original liquid volume to form a hard, closed cell monolithic roof surface. The Polyurethane Foam dries within seconds after applied to the roof surface. Its expansion results in a weather tight roofing membrane that is fully adhered to the substrate. Because of polyurethane’s lightweight it adds little additional weight to the structure and is often used in remedial applications.
Conklin’s spray foam roofing systems have been engineered to provide a superior, energy-efficient, long-lasting roof for any building. Conklin’s spray foam roofing systems have met the most stringent requirements for a variety of industry groups such as Factory Mutual and Underwriters Laboratories, and are recognized by the International Conference of Building Officials.
Since applicator knowledge and experience is important to the successful installation of a Spray foam roofing system, it is important to thoroughly investigate past performance when selecting a SPF contractor. Fortunately, the United States has high-quality spray foam contractors in every geographic region.
