Why Choose an SPF Roofing System

Intro text

Need a new commercial roof but wonder why choose an SPF roofing system? Our team at Kauffman Roofing in Jamesport can answer your question because we’ve seen the benefits of installing a Conklin’s spray polyurethane foam (SPF) roofing system. It is a strong, durable, and cost-effective option for commercial roofs.

SPF Roofing System

This type of roofing consists of polyurethane foam which is a seamless layer of foam that provides high-density insulation to the roof surface.  The foam offers a water-resistant membrane that protects the building from rain, water, and the sun and is fast and easy to repair or re-coat.

We’ve found many reasons as to why choose an SPF roofing system, including:


Polyurethane foam is one of the best insulators and has great waterproofing qualities because the closed cell foam of an SPF roofing system is made out of insulating material that doesn’t soak up water.  The foam is applied as a liquid that forms into a single monolithic membrane which has no joints or seams. This makes it almost leak proof.

Keeps Structural Integrity

One of the benefits is its ability to withstand the expansion and contraction of the building. The foam keeps sealed to the roof for a very long time and protects the roof from all weather conditions, withstanding high winds, the sunshine, and rain. Conklin SPF roofs can withstand hurricane-force winds.

Lower Energy Costs

One of the benefits of foam roofing is that it offers excellent insulation properties. The suspended aluminum particles of the foam reflect UV rays so, it reduces cooling and heating costs. A Conklin SPF roof can help business owners reduce their energy costs by offering an impressive insulation value of R-5 per inch.

The foam roof insulation solution that Kauffman Roofing installs on your building will change an existing, non-energy efficient roof into an environmentally-friendly roof that will help manage a commercial building’s energy costs. The spray polyurethane roofing system will pay for itself in a few short years due to its energy efficiency.

Slopes to the drain

This type of roof can also let the rainwater slope down to the drains by adding a little thickness in the low areas and that helps prevent roof leaks. The Conklin roof can easily fix damaged substrate and poor drainage.


This type of roof can add structural strength without adding much weight. The polyurethane foam is extremely lightweight, about eight ounces per square foot and can be applied over most existing roofs without surpassing the load capacity of the building.


This type of roof is extremely strong. The SPF product can easily withstand light foot traffic and other weight load-bearing requirements.

Flexible Installation

The SPF roofing system can go on most existing roofs (eliminating tear-off costs) or be applied as a new roof. It can also be put on different types of roofs like domed, pitched, flat, wood, metal, and concrete roofing, and even irregular-shaped roofs.


Conklin’s foam roofs have met the most stringent requirements for a variety of industry groups, like Factory Mutual, Underwriters’ Laboratories, and are recognized by the International Conference of Building Officials.
