Frequently Asked Questions About Foam Roofing

Q: What is Sprayed Foam Roofing?

what is sprayed foam roofing

A: Sprayed foam roofing (SFR) is pretty much self-explanatory. It’s a liquid that is sprayed onto your roofing surface with professional equipment. It expands to about 30 times from the original volume, then dries within a few moments. It’s a massive, solid layer that is attached to the roof. The SFR is material that protects the interior foundation of the roof. It doesn’t have gaps, crevices or seams, the perfect base that is waterproofing and energy saving.

A: One way to the foam roof can be damage is water. If the foam is not evenly applied or the roof’s slope is not long enough, a small pond will appear on your roof. That pond of water will cause leaks and water damages to the roof. That will weaken the quality and sustainability of the foam roof. Lacking of care and maintenance is another form of damaging a foam roof. If plants, algae or debris are on your roof, removes them immediately, don’t wait until it’s too late. Also the DIY roof projects can cause more harm. Have a professional roofer inspect and determine the degree of repairs needed. After that, have that professional fix the roof or if it’s a minor repair, then do it yourself. Alligatoring and blistering is bound to happen if the foam roof is not maintain very well.
