Polyurethane foam roofing is a great value because it combines affordability with excellent performance. It's a great option for commercial (or residential) roofs that are flat or have a low slope. We are proud to offer polyurethane foam roofing, because it is certain to lower your expenses in terms of both time and money. It also comes with an excellent long-term warranty.

Instead of doing a complete roof replacement, polyurethane foam roofing is offered as another great option. It is very light, with a square foot only weighing in at around a half pound; therefore, no great strain is put on your current roof. It is also very flexible when it is being applied, so it not only adds strength to the roof, but also can be applied to just about any type of roofing material in a very short period of time.
In some cases where the roof had been leaking for a while, we have found insulation under the roofing material that was saturated with water. This just means we tear off the defective areas if necessary, and apply the polyurethane foam roofing on the spot. This offers two advantages:
- The foam replacement almost always is a lighter weight on the roof than the section that was saturated with water.
- The customer enjoys a lower overall cost because of the shorter time required to fix the problem.
We have also found polyurethane foam roofing to be an excellent source of insulation. This allows your building to be much more efficient in its use of energy. We also don't have a need to use any fasteners that penetrate the material, which adds to the quality of insulation. There have been some studies done that indicate polyurethane foam roofing is actually the most energy efficient type of roofing material – that's great for your bottom line.
One thing that makes this foam unique is that it greatly expands its volume after being sprayed on; in fact, it can increase up to 50 times in volume. This means it is seamless when it dries, so leaks are no longer a worry.
Although the name includes the word "foam", it is initially sprayed on in liquid form. This means that it can be easily applied on even the more "difficult" roofing situations:
- Steep Slopes
- Odd Angles
- Large Protrusions
One of the common locations for leaking is around areas that have flashing, such as plumbing protrusions, vents or chimneys. With polyurethane foam roofing, there is no flashing required because of the nature of the material. So there is less likelihood of any leaking in a particular section of the roof. We can even spray it on in layers and direct the water to drain in a certain path to avoid ponding.
We are sometimes asked about the maintenance requirements for polyurethane foam roofing. The simple answer is that there is virtually no maintenance required. Of course, there is always the possibility of damage that can happen to any roof; for example, a tree limb falling on it. Usually this is solved with a basic caulking. Building owners love the fact that they no longer have to perform regular maintenance and repairs on their roof!
