SPF Roofing Systems:
Avoid time-consuming and costly tear-offs!
There’s no need to tear off and replace your weathered and leaking roof. By re-covering, you save on labor costs and avoid landfill expenses, plus your existing roof can be re-covered without any interruption to your normal business operations.
Ideal for use on virtually any roof
Polyurethane foam forms a monolithic, self-flashing surface, which effectively seals against leaks. There are no seams to split or pull apart and allow water to enter. SPF Roofs work especially well with irregular roof shapes that can be difficult to waterproof with traditional roofing materials. For existing roofs, SPF can easily be applied over pre-existing elastomeric roof coatings, metal roofs, built-up roofing, mineral cap sheet, and weathered single ply membranes (EPDM, Hypalon® and TPO/CPA) and re-coat existing sprayed in-place polyurethane foam, concrete, wood, and many other coatings.
Extend the life of your roof
Minimal maintenance and a virtually unlimited lifespan make SPF roofing systems the once-and-done lifetime roof solution. Unlike traditional roofing membranes, SPF is water proof throughout its applied depth. Any object would have to push its way through the entire thickness of the Innovative silicone technology provides a seamless weather-tight seal that protects the substrate against ultraviolet light and severe weather, it eliminates common sources of leaks and withstands permanent ponding water.
SPF has the best insulating properties available for commercial construction today. Reduce your heating and cooling cost by up to 30% -50%. SPF Systems usually pay for themselves in energy savings in 4 ½ years. Also, by placing the insulation on the outside, the foam system reduces building movement and thermal shock.

Severe weather protection
Severe weather is the toughest test for any roof system. When it comes to protecting roofs and walls against natural disasters, especially hurricanes, SPF roof systems have shown remarkable resistance to high wind uplift and blow off, a characteristic attributed to its spray-applied application, strong adhesion, lack of need for fasteners and absence of joints or edges for the wind to grab onto. SPF roofing is resistant to progressive peeling failure due to missile impact, deck failure and peeling failure at the roof edge, not to mention preventing water infiltration following missile impact. In fact, laboratory testing of SPF systems found that the foam’s wind uplift resistance actually exceeded the capacity of both FM (Factory Mutual) and UL (Underwriters Laboratories) Test equipment over concrete decks.
Foam roofing typically weighs around 50 lbs. per square, versus 800 lbs. for a built-up roof and 100 lbs. for ballasted single-ply roofs.
