Commercial Roofing in San Antonio, TX – Spray Foam Roofing

 

What is Spray Foam Roofing?

 

Spray foam roofing, also known as sprayed polyurethane foam (SPF) roofing system is a roofing application that can be applied on new roof installs or even existing commercial roofs. It is an innovative, high-tech solution without the need to remove existing roof structures. SPF, is applied initially as a liquid that will expand several times its original thickness, forming a seamless, watertight, monolithic roof coating.

 

This is accomplished by its closed cell structure, this innovative technology even can withstand most damage preventing the possibility for leaks. When sprayed polyurethane foam is professionally and properly installed, it will have superior adhesion properties, significantly strengthen the roof, and is a great solution where wind uplift can be a problem. It also offers great insulation properties which will reduce the cost of heating and air by as much as thirty percent. Spray foam roofing does not require that much maintenance or repair and in the event significant damage is sustained it will only require simple repairs to be good as new. Spray foam roofing can possibly last a lifetime. If you would like to learn more then give Longhorn Commercial Roofing in San Antonio, TX a call today.

 

Depending on the needs of the commercial roofing, the density of sprayed polyurethane foam can be adapted. As an example, if the commercial roof has high foot traffic, then the density will need to be greater. As an added benefit, the denser the SPF, the higher the insulation R-values will be and the greater the strength. When SPF is applied, all repairs for the roof should be completed first. Once repairs are completed, the surface will be prepped. When applied, it will provide a seamless and watertight roofing system.

Other Advantages of Sprayed Polyurethane Foam

Minutes after sprayed polyurethane foam is applied, it can be walked upon. When it has completely dried, an elastomeric top coat will be applied in order to provide extra protection. Other advantages of SPF include:

When applied as a liquid it will expand, thus creating a monolithic closed cell membrane that will cover the entire commercial roof. This eliminates the possibility of leaks which can occur in commercial roofs that have seams.

It can be applied to almost any commercial roof surface. Flashing is also not required since SPF forms its own watertight seal.

Providing solar reflectivity properties, SPF reduces heat gain that can be experienced from sunlight. This will lower interior temperatures during the summer within the building. During the winter it will provide insulation to help keep the interior warm.

Sprayed polyurethane foam reduces a commercial building’s contribution to the urban heat island effect.

With very little need for maintenance, spray foam roofing will save you costs otherwise that would be experienced with other roofing systems that require much more maintenance.

It is the leading roofing system application when it comes to insulating properties for commercial roofing in San Antonio, TX. SPF will reduce the costs associated with heating and cooling.
