What Is Foam Roofing?
Foam roofing is not quite how it sounds. We are not talking about a fluffy material on top of your building, but rather polyurethane sprayed on your roof which then expands to about 30 times of its initial volume. It dries to a hard seamless surface in mere seconds. Sprayed Polyurethane Foam or SPF for short are extremely suited for use on flat or slightly sloped roofs. After the foam has hardened, the surface is generally coated with a protective coat that makes the roof virtually impenetrable by the elements. What you get is a weatherproof roof.
Benefits of Foam Roofing
Aside from an incredibly long lifespan and minimal maintenance, SPF has many other fantastic attributes. It is a fantastic insulator, which can help reduce your Phoenix cooling costs dramatically; it is a green building material, which is great for the environment and further prevents rain or wind from entering your structure, because of the seamless nature of the roof construction. It is extremely durable and lightweight, which means that unlike with a tile roof, you do not have to worry whether your structure can support the roofing materials.
Many Phoenix residents are unfamiliar with foam roofing, often known as SPF, short for spray foam roofing. When people hear of foam roofing they may think of a styrofoam cooler or the type of foam used to fill a cushion. Foam roofing is nothing like that.Instead it begins as two separate liquids that when mixed together and sprayed onto a surface, can expand up to 30 times its original size and forms a solid, seamless, watertight roofing system.
Once it has been applied, Phoenix foam roofing requires a protective elastomeric coating, which has the ability to expand and contract with the foam. This coating is usually applied in three separate coats with special granules embedded into it to protect against UV rays.

One of the many reasons foam roofing in Phoenix is so cost effective and echo friendly is that it can be installed over practically any type of existing roof, eliminating both the cost of tearing off the old roof and the use of a landfill for disposal.
Foam roofing is also extremely energy efficient. Studies have shown that the use of foam roofing in a hot climate like Phoenix can pay for itself in less than five years.
Additionally foam roofing has a long life span if it is properly maintained. Foam roofing should be cleaned and recoated about every 12 years. When foam roofing is properly installed and maintained it can last up to 50 years.
Foam roofing should only be applied by a Phoenix roofing contractor experienced in its use. Numerous problems can arise during the application, and the roofing contractor must have the ability to recognize a problem quickly and be willing to stop immediately to deal with it without regard to lost time or pay. In other words their goal must be customer satisfaction and pride in a job well done.
