Commercial Cool Roofing in Phoenix, AZ

Phoenix Commercial Cool Roofing

Ancient Greeks knew about philosophy, writing poetry, and creating art masterpieces. They also knew how to keep cool. Yes, the togas helped, but they also understood that buildings constructed with lighter colored materials kept their space cooler. Since there have not been any changes to the principles of heat and light, people wear lighter colored clothing in hot climates to reflect the energy from the sun because darker colored clothing absorbs the sun’s energy.

So why continue to pay the price in higher energy and maintenance costs for that black roof on your building?

If you’re thinking about a commercial cool roof, you need to understand the basics. Like how much of the sun’s energy a white roof reflects, and how long the reflectivity lasts.

Urban Heat Island: Truth and Consequences

You’ve probably heard about the “heat island” effect: the tendency of urban areas to reach temperatures from 3 to 8 degrees Fahrenheit above the surrounding countryside.

But do you know what heat island means for your building’s energy and maintenance costs and what you can do about it?

Truth

  • Nearly half of the U.S. population lives and works in “heat islands.”
  • 38% of the heat island effect is attributable to dark roofing, which absorbs more sunlight.

Consequences

  • More discomfort, resulting in lost productivity.
  • Increased energy cost as air conditioners work harder to keep building cool.
  • Higher maintenance expenses due to accelerated aging of building structures.

Cool Roof Solutions for Hot Buildings in Phoenix

White roofing is one of the fastest, easiest, least expensive, and most effective ways to reduce energy consumption in buildings with low-slope and flat roofs. Mostly cool roofs are associated with white roofs because light colors can typically reflect more heat than dark colors.

White roofing can be applied to both commercial and residential buildings. For existing roofing, we can also add a solar reflective coating to save energy and reduce heat. If you want to get more information about white roofing services in Arizona, please contact us today!

White roofing has a variety of colors and materials available. White vinyl is one of the most popular materials in Phoenix for cool roofing. We can also use rubber, shingles, PVC even metal for your cool roofing projects. There are different industry standards and certification programs to evaluate the performance of energy-saving materials.

Sprayed polyurethane foam is a two-part chemical that is sprayed through a heated hose. When the two parts are combined in the heated gun, they react and create a foam that almost instantly hardens on the roof.

How long can a foam roof last?

If properly maintained, it can last forever. The most important part of a foam roof is maintenance. It is important to keep the coating in good shape so that the sun does not bake the foam under the coating. It is also important to keep your foam roof clean of dirt and vegetation. Dirt and vegetation will allow weeds, plants and even trees grow on your roof! With vegetation comes bugs, with bugs comes animals such as birds who like to eat the bugs. If there is one thing we can recommend more than any other system, it’s maintenance.

What kind of R-Value does a foam roof have?

Every manufacturer has a slightly different R value but generally speaking you can expect to get 6-7 R-Value per inch of foam installed.

Foam Roofing in Phoenix

What is Foam Roofing?

SPF or sprayed polyurethane foam is one of the most popular, durable, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly roofing systems in Phoenix. Years of research back this relatively new technology and show the many benefits of foam roofing. Urethane foam roofing in Phoenix offers you a long-term solution for your home. The original SPF roofing has been installed on residential homes in Phoenix since the 1970s.

Although the urethane products we use are similar, our materials are more modern and have been refined and significantly improved over the years. Although the majority of foam roofing contractors offer SPF, you can be assured all of our materials are of the highest possible quality.

Is Foam Roofing in Arizona Worth it?

Yes, the best system for your flat roof is polyurethane foam. Phoenix residential foam roofing is sprayed on, resulting in a seamless protection layer for your home and it pays for itself due to the insulation value. This means the thickness of the material will save you money on your cooling and heating costs. In addition to leak protection, your Phoenix foam roof will last for the long term.

What Is Foam Roofing in Phoenix Made of?

When the liquid components of a polyol resin and isocyanate are combined, the result is urethane foam roofing. The material is then sprayed onto the surface of your roof. The reaction of the liquid mixture creates a durable insulation layer on your roof. The minimum application layer is one inch. We can use thicker applications for extra insulation.

Why Should You Choose Foam Roofing Phoenix AZ?

The combination of benefits and ease you receive with a residential foam roof in Arizona are excellent for the unique weather in the area. Foam roofs have become popular all over the state. At Jim Brown and Sons Roofing, we help you take advantage of all the advantages you receive with foam roofing. We are a family-owned business with over 40 years of experience in the Phoenix area offering high-quality materials and workmanship. Contact us today for a free estimate!

Reasons to Consider Foam Roofing in Arizona

The application process for a residential foam roof in Arizona uses a blowing agent free of CFCs or chlorofluorocarbons. This means you are having a green roofing solution installed. You can take pride in your new roof and the benefits you receive because everything is environmentally friendly.

One of the benefits of polyurethane is insulation. During a Phoenix summer, you need your roof to keep heat away from your home. During the winter, you are kept warm by the same insulation. The insulation is so superior, your energy consumption decreases and you are helping the planet by going green.

A residential foam roof in Arizona keeps water away due to the virtual impenetrability of the closed-cell structure. Since your foam roof helps ensure appropriate drainage, it will help prevent water from collecting even when it is raining. As Phoenix foam roofing contractors, we recommend polyurethane roofing regardless of which type of roof you have. We simply use foam to spray on your new roof.

At Jim Brown and Sons Roofing, we want your roof to be durable whether we are performing foam roof repair in Phoenix or installing an entirely new roof. A spray foam roof is resilient, provides you with durability and protects your home for the long run.
