Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) roofing, better known as foam roofing, consists of an application of specifically designed foam covered with an elastomeric coating (typically acrylic, silicone or polyurethane) or aggregate covering to protect the foam from ultraviolet rays. Using specialized equipment two liquid components are mixed at the spray gun that applies the SPF to a prepared substrate. The mixed liquid expands many times its original volume in a matter of seconds, forming a rigid foam plastic that chemically bonds to the surface to which it is sprayed. Spraying the foam in ½” to 1-1/2” lifts allows the applicator to reach the desired thickness to fill in low areas, build up slope, and provide insulation.
SPF has a closed cell structure that makes it water resistant. It must be protected by an elastomeric coating or other coverings (such as aggregate) to prevent ultra-violet-induced surface degradation. Such coverings can also be used for other purposes, including, inhibiting moisture vapor transmission, enhancing the aesthetics of the system, increasing the impact and abrasion resistance of the system, achieving non-flammability and meeting code requirements.
SPF roofing systems have good adhesion to a variety of substrates including metal, wood, concrete and built up roofing (BUR). Since SPF adds little weight to existing roof coverings and can build slope to fill in low areas, these systems are used frequently as a recover roofing system.
Your existing roof system should be carefully evaluated by a professional to ensure that the SPF roofing system can be supported.
Hail and high winds can cause tree limbs, broken tile, and metal flashing to puncture areas on your roof and damage your SPF roofing system. This type of damage should be repaired even if it does not cause leaks to your roofing system. It can cause future issues and compromise the long-term performance of your roofing system if not repaired in a timley manner.
SPF roofing systems also excel when the following conditions exist:
- Additional insulation is required
- Severe temperatures hot and cold
- The roof substrate has numerous penetrations
- The roof deck is an unusual configuration
- The roof is in an area where high winds are likely to occur
- Lightweight materials are required
- Slope must be added to provide positive drainage
