Today’s building owner has a growing preference for durable, roofing systems with high-energy performance, low maintenance costs, and an extended lifespan. Spray polyurethane foam roofing (SPF) provides these advantages and more. Yet for all of its growing popularity, there remains a lack of qualified roofers with the knowledgeable, and experience for properly installing or maintaining the SPF system. If you are considering an SPF roof, contact Longhorn Construction for additional information, our roofing professionals specialize in SPF and other roof coatings for your commercial roofing in Fort Worth.
From the original SPF, today’s product has been specially designed for commercial roofing applications. SPF has a closed-cell structure that makes it water resistant. The product sprays on as a liquid that rapidly expands several times its original thickness filling cracks and crevices, sealing flashings and other penetrations, while creating a watertight and seamless, monolithic roof coating. When the applied surface is properly prepared, SPF provides superior adhesion to the roof surface with a chemical bond. This feature means SPF is a solution in locations where wind uplift causes problems, and SPF enhances the roof with exceptional strength. SPF is an excellent choice for your building’s commercial roofing in Fort Worth.
Furthermore, SPF is ideal for buildings with unique architectural elements affecting the building’s commercial roofing in Fort Worth. SPF provides a smooth transition, and superior protection when applied by a commercial roofer with SPF expertise. SPF also provides the ability to build up a slope, and provide insulation with energy savings of up to 30% on the cost of heating and air conditioning.
A Solution for Almost Any Roof
SPF can be applied to almost any roof, providing protection, waterproofing and extending roof life. Hail and blowing debris can damage the SPF roofing system, though it seldom penetrates the entire thickness. Due to the closed cell technology of SPF, damage does not typically result in leaks, and can be repaired when convenient. SPF roofing systems are also ideal when the following conditions exist:
• Additional insulation is required.
• The roof substrate has numerous penetrations requiring the superior adhesion of SPF to form its own waterproof “flashing”.
• The roof deck is a unique design.
• The building is located where high winds are likely to occur.
• Lightweight roofing materials are required.
• Additional slope is needed to provide effective drainage.
SPF and Elastomeric Coating – the Partnership
SPF must be protected by elastomeric coatings or other coverings (such as aggregate) to prevent degradation due to UV rays. Elastomeric coating not only protects SPF, it adds a wide array of additional benefits for your commercial roofing in Fort Worth. The combination provides a superior roofing surface that will serve you long term.
Insist on a Certified Commercial Roofer With Experience
Being a great commercial roofer does not automatically bestow the skill required to install SPF for your commercial roofing in Fort Worth. Providing needed repairs to the existing roof, and providing a clean surface for proper adherence, are both essential before the installation of SPF. Furthermore, the skill of the roofer in applying SPF is essential. So essential in fact, only 500 roofing companies nationwide have the required certification to apply SPF. The training is lengthy, and obtaining the proper experience is even longer.
