DO SPRAY FOAM ROOF BENEFITS OUTWEIGH THE COST?
In some cases, a spray foam roof may cost more than other more traditional roofing systems. Why does spray foam cost more? Is spray foam a scarce material? Hardly. Is it difficult to install? It takes practice, but it becomes easy. If it’s not hard to install and isn’t scarce, how can this system still sell even when it costs more? Because it offers benefits that no other roofing system can match. Are these benefits worth the additional cost? Check out some of the benefits and you can decide for yourself.
As we mentioned above, spray foam roofs are very easy to install. They take practice to perfect the skill, but once you are a competent installer you can spray foam very quickly and efficiently.
Spray foam is a monolithic system which means it has no seams. It is also self-adhered, which means it has no fasteners. These are two of the most common causes of leaks in commercial roofs, so removing them removes a large percentage of leaks.
Spray foam offers the highest R-value of any roofing system available, which simply means it is the best insulator of any system. If you want to keep your building cool in the summer, warm in the winter, and save money at the same time, a spray foam roof is for you.
Spray foam roofs can be installed in almost any situation, over any roof. They are very versatile because they are spray-applied, so complications that would be difficult for other roofing systems are nothing for a spray foam roof.
Severe Weather Performance
Spray foam outperforms all other roofing systems when it comes to resisting severe weather. It has extremely low wind-uplift ratings, is resistant to hail damage, and rain is no problem. When severe weather strikes, it’s nice to be under a spray foam roof.
