Going Green with a Commercial Roof
There’s a lot of talk in the United States these days about “going green.” While Southern Louisiana’s natural environment is a gorgeous sight, we have experienced our share of environmental issues with the loss of wetlands and the oil spill in the Gulf in 2010. Maybe that’s why businesses in southern Louisiana have begun to find ways to make their endeavors more sustainable. Many businesses are turning to a SPF commercial roof to go green.
One way to contribute to eco-friendly business practices is to work in a building that follows best practices. A green roof can be a significant step for business owners who want to go green. The best part? Going green can actually save green for your company.
Spray foam roofing is considered by many to be one of the few sustainable roofing systems available. When properly maintained with periodic re-coats, a spray foam roof can last for the lifetime of your structure.
One way to ensure the long life of your spray foam commercial roof system is by applying an elastomeric protective coating. Not only are these coatings fireproof, they also function as an Energy Star approved Cool Roof coating. That means a spray foam roof with the proper coating will be protected from damaging UV rays.
But a cool roof means more than a longer life for your structure, it also means reduced energy expenses. Spray foam insulation combined with a Cool Roof coating can reduce your heating and cooling expenses by 30% to 50%! Talk about saving green!
In just a few years, your spray foam roof will pay for itself through reduced energy bills alone, all while increasing the comfort of your employees and clients.

When you’re thinking about a new roof for your commercial structure, think spray foam roofing. You’ll be diverting waste from landfills, providing an eco-friendly, renewable roof for your business, and saving money on heating and cooling costs. That’s just good business sense.
