SPRAY FOAM ROOFS CAN BE INSTALLED IN A VARIETY OF SITUATIONS
First off, spray foam is not an easy roof system to install. Many people assume that because it is spray-applied, goes down quickly, and doesn’t require a multitude of tools, that it is easy to install. That is simply not true. An amateur who walks up on a roof and starts spraying foam will not install a satisfactory roof. Spraying foam is a difficult, detailed process that takes many hours of practice before one can install it properly. With that said, a spray foam installer who has practiced and developed the skills to install a good spray foam roof will be able to “easily” install a spray foam roof in most situations. The entire spray foam installation process offers a major benefit to building owners; let’s see how.
Spray Foam Installation is Straightforward, But Not Easy
Installing a spray foam roof is a straightforward process in which you apply the material directly to the roof surface, but it is not easy. It’s not as labor intensive as some other roofing systems, but you have to pay close attention to how thick you are spraying the material; are you putting it on smooth, are you installing it in the right thickness in each coat to ensure it cures properly? These questions must always be in a spray foam installers mind. The process itself is simple and straightforward, but it is not easy.
Years of Practice
A good foam applicator will have years of practice and experience installing foam. It’s not something that you learn overnight and it’s definitely not something that you can pick up by reading a manual. You simply have to pick up a foam gun and start spraying to get the feel for the material. The skilled foam installers that you see on your roof got that way through years of practice. It looks easy to them now because of all the hard work they have put in over several years of practicing.
Spray foam installation is a straightforward process that looks easy, but isn’t easy at all as most people would define it. It requires great attention to detail, years of practice, patience to let the material do its job, and the ability to solve problems on the go.
