As a nationwide contractor, we never forgot our roots. We started 40 years ago as a family owned roofing contractor, and today we are still family owned and operated. What that means for you is that while we’re one of the largest commercial roofing contractors in the nation, we still provide a personal touch to make your roofing project as seamless as possible.
In each region we work in, the needs are a little bit different. Our sales reps in Louisiana know that snow isn’t generally a problem, but hurricane-force winds and heavy rains certainly can be. When Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans and the surrounding areas so hard in 2007, we were there to replace the Superdome and provide much needed shelter to those who had lost their homes.
Our spray foam roofing system provides industry-leading wind uplift resistance, so it was a no-brainer to be used in the replacement of the Superdome roof. Of course, that wind uplift resistance would be valuable on any roof in Louisiana even today.
Resisting Severe Winds
Louisiana isn’t usually the epicenter of any hurricane’s damage, but it is generally close enough to receive harsh wind and rain. And as discussed above, Louisiana can be the center of the hurricane’s damage.
A spray foam roofing system offers unique benefits to Louisiana building owners because it is a fully-adhered system. This property of complete adhesion protects the roof, and therefore your building, from the threat of heavy winds.
Resisting Harsh Rains
A spray foam roofing system has two points of defense against the rain. First, the spray foam itself is waterproof. This gives you a typically 2″ barrier against the rain. A seamless membrane of foam keeps your building completely dry. As if that wasn’t enough, the protective coating on top of the foam is also waterproof. These two materials work together to keep your building completely dry and comfortable.
In addition to wind and rain protection, spray foam also offers superior insulation, which keeps your building cool during the hot summer months without running up your electric bill. When winter comes and the weather drops, the spray foam will keep your building nice and warm while continuing to save you money.
