There are several types of roof coating systems, the four most common are Acrylic, Silicone, Foam, and Thermoplastic. Each has advantages and disadvantages, and some are a better fit for one kind of roof versus another. We are currently building this page to have a wealth of information for you. For the time being we will be talking about the #1 roof coating that we provide which is Spray Foam Polyurethan.

Spray Foam Roof

What is a Foam Spray Roof?

Spray-on polyurethane foam (SPF) is a multi-component material created by mixing isocyanates (A) and polyols (B) together under heat and pressure.

Although spray foam has been used for some time, it is still relatively unfamiliar to most building managers and property owners. SPF has been used in a variety of industries and applications since the 1940s, but only in the late 1970s did it begin being used in roofing and construction industries due to its superior insulation properties.

Modern sprayed polyurethane foam roofing materials are available in both open-cell and closed-cell grades. Closed-cell foam is mostly used for commercial roofing applications, whereas open-cell foam is generally used for internal insulation and sound proofing. To make sure that you get a successful application, it is critical that you get the right heat and pressure in your mix. As the foam cures, it hardens, creating a strong, seamless, lightweight, waterproof membrane.

Installing a SPF roof system requires extensive knowledge of SPF chemical properties and use of very specialized application equipment. For some contractors, it may take months, even years, to become an expert SPF roofing system application technician. For anyone considering SPF roofing systems, spend the time necessary to vet prospective contractors thoroughly. Ask to see work references, industry certifications, product samples, case studies, etc. In some cases, the contractor might be able to set up a walk-through of the roof of a project he or she has installed recently.

What Does a Roof Replacement Look Like?

Step 1: Preparation

Debris, old roofing material, nails and dust will fall off your roof – this is unavoidable. Please protect and cover any critical areas outside of your home and that is in and around the outside of your home. Also, please cover up any equipment that you might have close to our working areas.

Our generators create a bit of noise, and vibrations that may disturb things like ceiling fixtures or items hanging from walls. Please remove or temporarily secure those items.

Step 2: Delivery

Roofing shingles or tiles and underlayment materials are delivered approximately two days prior to a project.. These materials are generally stored at the homeowner’s property (usually in front of the house, on the sidewalk). Some material must be stored in the parking garage or surrounding area – it all depends on the location of the job.

In a situation like this, you must secure a space to hold the materials, and let us know where that is.

Roofing materials are heavy and take up space. Make sure that that the storage area is off limits, or there is enough space. The storage area should not be in a highly congested area, so that we are not interrupting day-to-day operations.

Step 3: Installation

It is time to install your new roof! Our crew will arrive at your agreed upon time and start the process. If possible, we recommend having a primary contact on site. However, if that is not feasible, it is ok, and rest assured we will work hard to meet all your roofing needs!

Step 4: Cleanup

Our goal is to keep your project site as clean as possible while we are working, however, we do clean up the site once we are done with your project. We also use magnetic tools to remove debris that is left from our projects. We are happy to help move any items back into their original spaces that were moved out prior to the roofing project. We hope that once it is done, all you see is the new or improved roof, with no other evidence of us being there.

Step 5: Peace of Mind

The roof is done, and all concerns may be put to rest. After the installation, small particles of the gravel can wash off with a stream of water from your storm drain.

Please be aware this is totally normal. Sit back and relax, knowing that with your new or repaired roof, your home is now safer and secure. We want to be fully transparent and make sure that throughout our time together, you are comfortable and informed.
