Spray Foam Commercial Roofing

roof1Green Earth Services offers Spray Foam Insulation Roofing Systems because it provides many benefits to building owners. The two most prominent benefits are waterproofing and insulating. Many additional benefits a leak free seal over the entire roof deck, a high insulation value and energy savings, a strong adhesion and wind resistance to prolong the life of your roof.

Spray Foam Process for Commercial Roofs

The Spray Foam Insulation is applied to fill cracks and crevices. It will then expand to approximately 30 times its original liquid volume to form a hard, closed cell monolithic roof surface. The Spray Foam Insulation dries within seconds after being applied to the roof. Because the Spray Foam Insulation that Green Earth Services uses is lightweight it adds very little additional weight to the structure. Spray Foam Insulation adds excellent insulation value to the structure and save you lots of money on your utility bills.

Once the Spray Foam Insulation has been applied to the proper thickness and finish specifications, this protective layer produces a durable weather resistant surface. Spray Foam Insulation requires protection from the sun's ultra-violet radiation, moisture and foot traffic. A protective coating helps to protect and seal the foam from any damage from these or other elements.

Roof Protection

A Spray Foam Insulation roof, like most other systems, will expand and contract during different climate conditions. It is very important that the protective coating is able to expand and contract with the Spray Foam Insulation or serious damage can result in the form of cracks.

Much of the heat generated by absorbing the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation transfers to the building interior, and can have significant adverse effects on energy consumption.

Spray Foam roofs are very durable and can handle foot and construction traffic just as well as other roofing systems. They are still susceptible to damage from dropped tools just as any other roof but the damage is more easily seen and can most often be repaired with some simple polyurethane caulking. Spray Foam roofs have extremely high adhesive characteristics and often demonstrate the strongest resistance to high winds and wind-uplift. Spray Foam Insulation roofing systems have performed extremely well compared to traditional roof systems in areas of high wind, tornadoes and hurricanes.  Sprayfoamroofing

Energy Savings

Sustainable Spray Foam Insulation roofs not only save money every month by lowering utility bills, they significantly reduce the need for future roof replacement.  Many well known large companies and institutions have documented significant energy savings from SPF roofing systems. Spray Foam Insulation helps to keep energy costs low because it is applied above the roof deck and it also reduces or eliminates thermal bridging.

Spray Foam Insulation adheres to just about every traditional roofing material and can be installed over concrete, wood, steel, and most existing roof systems. Therefore roof removal and landfill fees are saved, and is thus more environmentally friendly. Spray Foam Insulation Roofing Systems apply a tapered roof system with the foam which eliminates the need for costly tapered insulation systems. The vertical wall terminations are also applied making them an integral part of the roof system and minimizing additional component costs and flashing materials.
