SPRAY FOAM ROOFING, ROOF COATINGS, AND REFLECTIVE COATINGS
One of the modern innovations supporting green initiatives is the SPF roofing or spray foam roofing installation that our company offers in Harris County, TX and nearby areas.
SPF or Sprayed Polyurethane Foam is applied as a liquid using plural-component spray equipment to fill cracks and crevices. It then expands approximately 30 times its original liquid volume to form a hard, closed-cell monolithic roof surface. The Polyurethane Foam dries within seconds after being applied to the roof surface. Its expansion results in a weather-tight roofing membrane that is fully adhered to the substrate. Because of polyurethane's lightweight, it adds little additional weight to the structure and is often used in remedial applications. Polyurethane Foam has a history of more than 35 years as a maintainable roofing medium as it adds excellent insulation value to the structure. The utility bills can reflect the difference.
Once the SPF has been applied to the proper thickness and finishes specifications, a protective layer of elastomeric coating or gravel is applied. This protective layer produces a durable weather-resistant surface that can be walked on for normal maintenance.
ENERGY STAR qualified roof coating products reduce the amount of air conditioning needed in buildings and can reduce energy bills by up to 50%. The Cool Roof Program defines certain standards for reflectivity, and maintenance of reflectivity, in roof coating systems. These light-colored roof coatings reflect the sun's heat and UV rays and often lower the temperature of the roof by up to 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
The installation of SPF involves different procedures based on the existing roof structure. It is important to be familiar with all state and local building codes to assure the materials and procedures meet the necessary requirements in your area.
