Your Expert’s Guide to Phoenix Spray Foam Roofing!

There is no doubt about it; your roof is one of the most important components of your home and also one of the most expensive ones. Its value comes from many different factors such as if it keeps you dry, insulates well, is easy to maintain, has a great live span and of course, looking good never hurts either.

Traditionally most roofs in the Phoenix area have been constructed of shingles or tile, but one excellent roofing material choice that often goes overlooked (especially by homeowners) is Spray Foam Roofing.

What is Spray Foam Roofing?

Spray foam roofing, or SPF for short, is pretty much what it sounds like. It is a liquid that is sprayed onto your roofing surface with specialty equipment. Then it expands to about 30 times of its initial volume and dries within a very short time period to a strong, closed-cell foam. What you are left with is a fantastically dense roofing material that adheres extremely well to its substrate (aka your roof).

SPF roofing is so unique, because once tried to a monolithic and uniform surface, it has virtually no gaps, crevices or seams, making it extremely efficient in terms of waterproofing, waterproofing, and energy savings.

Properties of Spray Foam Roofing

Its seamless application alone makes it a great roofing material for many roofs, especially during the wet monsoon season, where traditional roofing systems tend to leak quite a bit. But urethane roofing has many other great properties as well.

  • Weight: Because it is a foam, it is so lightweight that you will never have to worry if your roof can carry its weight. Unlike when you are switching from shingle to tile roofing and you need a structural engineer to asses if your roof can carry the additional weight, SPF roofs are so lightweight, that you can put them on virtually any roof. It can even be applied over existing roofing materials.
  • Monolithic: While the word monolithic may remind you of rock formations, in the context with spray foam roofing it means that you are dealing with one solid, uniform layer sans gaps, cracks, crevices or any other seams that would allow water, wind or pests to penetrate the roofing structure and enter your home. After your Phoenix spray foam roofing contractor has applied the liquid, it dries to a seamless and strong foam layer, sealing your roof completely and thus making it weather- and waterproof. The seamless application is also what makes SPF self-flashing, meaning your roofing contractor won’t have to add flashing to keep water from entering your building (plus flashing despite its purpose often is a main cause of water damage).
  • Durable and strong adhesion: Durability is always a plus. In fact, SPF roofs are much more durable and resilient than people generally assume. For example, it is not true that you cannot walk on a foam roof, because it can break, nor will a flock of birds pick it apart. Because of its great adhesive properties you will never have to worry about wind-uplift issues, because its bond with the roof won’t allow it to be swept away.

Benefits of SPF

Because of its fantastic properties, PHX spray foam roofs offer many benefits over traditional roofing materials.

For one it has a high R- Value. The “R” stands for resistance to heat flow, the higher the R value the better the insulating power, which is especially important if you are living in an area as hot as Arizona. If you would like to learn more about energy efficient insulating (roofing) materials you can check out some helpful links on the FTD website.

It is extremely low maintenance. Which is great, because who wants to deal with roofing problems all the time. After your professional Phoenix area roofer has installed your roof and applied the initial elastomeric protective roof coat, there isn’t really a whole lot you have to do. Occasional maintenance checks should be performed as you would with any roofing type. These inspections may include checking for standing and ponding water, holes and punctures, roof deterioration, and free flowing drains and gutters.

Because the brutal Arizona sun can put quite some strain on your roof, you should have it recoated every few years to ensure that your roof remains protected and will last you a very long time. A properly recoated and maintained foam roof will last you a lifetime and safe you a bunch of money because of it.

In fact, one of the best things about Phoenix SPF roof installations is that they make pretty much the best ROI you can hope for. The energy savings alone make it well worth it.

We all know, just how hard our A/C systems are working during the relentless summer heat. Because of its fantastic insulating properties and its ability to reflect sunlight, a foam roof will lower your power bill significantly. This also means that your air conditioning system has to work less hard and for shorter periods of time, which can drastically extend the life expectancy of your A/C unit. A foam roof is truly great for every component of your home or business. When you hear people mention the term cool roof, this is exactly what they are talking about. A roof that not only keeps your home cooler, but the surrounding environment as well.

If you are wondering if a Polyurethane spray foam roof is right for you, talk to your local foam roofing company. Chances are, SPF is an excellent choice for your home or business roofing structure as well, as it has the ability to adhere to a multitude of substrates which makes it great for roof repair work and reroofing applications in the greater Phoenix metro area.
