There are many benefits and advantages of commercial spray foam roof coatings.
It might seem like a new innovation, but the reality is that commercial spray foam roof coatings have been around for more than 60 years. Granted, innovations have come about over the years that have made this an even more beneficial solution, but it is clearly a proven method for providing ultimate protection for your Burlington, North Carolina commercial building. At Just In Time Roofing & Restoration, we work with area businesses that would like a lasting solution and those that already have an SPF (spray polyurethane foam) roof that is ready for re-coating.
The first application of commercial spray foam roof coating is generally quite thick, averaging between 20 and 30 mm. When your roof is ready for re-coating in about 10 to 20 years, it will need only 7 to 10 mm of commercial spray foam roof coating to restore its performance. One of the reasons why SPF is so popular is because it is a renewable roof system that can provide you more than 50 years of reliable protection for your building with only occasional maintenance needed.
If you are looking for optimal energy savings from your roofing system, you’ll find that SPF is the way to go. In fact, because of its high R-value, you could recoup your investment in under a decade by enjoying lower heating and cooling costs. The average R-value of commercial spray foam roof coatings is 6.6 per inch, which even exceeds EPS insulation at 3.85 per inch and XPS insulation at 5.0 per inch.
One of the advantages of a commercial spray foam roof coating is that it is seamless. Instead of worrying about the seams of a rolled single-ply membrane roofing material failing due to wind and other causes, you can rest assured that no gaps will occur that can result in water damage to your building. Since SPF is also self-flashing, there is very little chance of leaks developing around roof projections, such as drains, skylights, HVAC equipment, parapet walls, pipes, or vents.
As is the case with any roofing system, a commercial spray foam roof coating does have its drawbacks. The good news is that our talented team is able to circumvent issues by completing the installation properly. You needn’t worry about the application being done incorrectly or under the wrong conditions. We will time your SPF installation or re-coating at the right time of year and pay close attention to the weather to ensure your project goes smoothly to provide lasting performance from your investment. The two conditions we pay attention to are the temperature and wind conditions. We won’t be able to proceed if it is windy or the temperature falls below 50°F.
You should also reach out to us if you have noticed damage has occurred to your SPF roof, as punctures and damage should be fixed promptly. An inspection after severe weather is recommended in case flying debris or hail has caused any damage.
