Prevent Roof Leaks • Improve Building Insulation • Withstand Severe Weather
Spray foam roofing is a relatively new roofing system, it’s been around for just about 50 years. In most people’s minds, that’s a pretty long time, but since there are roofing systems that have been on buildings for twice that long, it’s considered young.
Whether it’s a new install where spray foam roofing is used because of it’s energy efficiency, or a retro fit application where foam is installed over an existing roof, one thing is certain: spray foam roofing is the best roofing system on the planet.

Spray Foam Roofing can be applied in two unique applications:
When a new building goes up, it always needs a roof. This can be metal, concrete, single-ply, etc. Most of these systems require multiple layers – the roof deck, a layer for installation, a layer for waterproofing, it can get messy.
Spray foam, however, needs just two layers: the roof deck, and the spray foam itself which is applied directly to the deck. This is a very simple system that can be installed quickly and painlessly.
Foam isn’t always chosen as the roofing material for new construction, and in these cases, it does a great job replacing the system that was originally used.
As long as the existing roofing system is structurally sound, spray foam roofing can be applied directly over top of the existing roof, usually with minimal tear-out required. In this case, the new roof protects the old roof, and the building owner can get a warranty without having to remove the roof from their building.
