What To Know About Spray Polyurethane Foam

The materials used for a commercial roof are different than the materials used on residential homes. A spray polyurethane foam (SPF) roof is one of the types of materials you can use in commercial roof installation.

This is an eco-friendly material that is sprayed onto your roof. Then the material expands into foam and solidifies, creating a hard layer on top of your existing roof, making it the perfect material when you need to put a new roof on a building.

Works Anywhere

One of the biggest benefits of using SPF is that this material works in all types of climates. It will work if you live in the Southern United States, where heat is more common throughout the year. It will work just as well if you live in the Northern United States, where the temperature tends to be cooler, and you get more snow and ice during the winter.

Energy Efficient

Next, SPF roofing is highly energy-efficient. It will help create a moisture barrier as well as a thermal and air barrier between your roof and your building. It should help improve the overall energy efficiency of your building and help to keep your energy cost under control.


When you put new material on your roof, you will want to install a durable roofing material. As SPF is a foam-based material, it will expand and contract with your entire building. Since the material responds to your building, it is less likely to crack and split, which means you will spend less time repairing and fixing your roof and more time enjoying a high-quality roof.


Next, SPF is a highly waterproof material. As it is sprayed onto the roof, it creates a continuous solid surface. The roof doesn't have any joints or seams in it, which means that there are not many opportunities for leaks to develop. Without joints and seams, the roof doesn't have that many vulnerabilities, which means water intrusion into your building should be exceptionally rare.

Environmentally Friendly

Finally, SPF is a highly environmentally friendly material. You don't have to strip off your old roof, which involves spending a lot of money and creating a lot of waste. It can be applied on top of your existing roof structure during installation.

Additionally, the actual materials used in the SPF are good for the environment. The material is free from chlorofluorocarbons, contains a low level of volatile organic compounds, and has zero ozone-depleting potential.  

If you need to reroof your commercial roof, you should consider using spray polyurethane foam roofing material, which works anywhere, is energy-efficient, highly durable, waterproof, environmentally friendly, and on top of all that, affordable.

Roofers and the Modern Era

Roofs have been along for just about as long as buildings have been around — thousands of years. However, roofs have changed a lot over time. So have the jobs of roofers. Thousands of years ago, roofers knew how to create bundles of straw and use them to make a roof. This process was known a thatching. These days, however, roofers know how to install shingles, put metal sheets on the roof, and lay tile. These are different skills, and they are all very important skills. Join us in discussing these skills, and the work of roofers in general, on this website.
