Spray Foam Roofing

spray foam roofing

Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) is a type of roof that is applied with a spray gun that mixes two chemicals as they leave the gun. The end result can range in thickness from 1 inch to several inches.

A foam roof is plastic and waterproof, but it does need a top coat or layer (often rock) to help resist UV rays from the sun.

Foam roof installation

Interestingly, spray foam can be very soft or so hard that you can drive a nail into it. But, when it comes to roofing, the foam will be somewhere in between: soft enough to expand and contract when needed, but hard enough to withstand the elements. A myth persists that foam roofs can’t be walked on, but that’s simply not true. When it’s applied correctly, this type of roof can withstand up to 40 pounds per square inch or higher. This means it can sustain the weight of a normal person very easily.

Foam, which began to be distributed commercially as a roofing material in 1954, has proven itself to be a durable, affordable option. Because it’s applied as a liquid, it’s also seamless.

A few other interesting facts: Foam roofing is both energy-efficient and long-lasting. It’s also lightweight, at about 8 pounds per square foot. Foam can be applied over other roofing systems without exceeding load capacity, and it’s incredibly strong — quite the amazing roofing material!
