Commercial Foam Roof Systems in Phoenix, AZ

Commercial foam roofing systems are applied to facilities in order to make the commercial structures fireproof and can be applied to all kinds of industrial roofs with ease. Installing sprayed-in-place polyurethane foam will not have any effect on the UL-class classification of the roof whether the decking application is combustible or non-combustible. This kind of foam roofing system is capable of waterproofing and insulating and is durable enough to withstand harsh weather conditions. This system also lowers the effects of extreme temperatures thus lowering heat and thermal shock potential.

SPF or sprayed polyurethane foam is made of two liquids namely isocyanate, resin or polyol along with an environmentally friendly blowing agent that forms small bubbles in the mixture as it is sprayed. When both of them are combined, they form a closed cell liquid that is then sprayed on roofs.

How a Phoenix Commercial Roof is ‘Foamed’

Both liquids are pumped from different containers and are sprayed from a spray gun at a 1:1 ratio. When these two combine in the nozzle, they increase in size or expand 30 – 50 times as the bubbles continue to form which result in a solid, close-celled yet light mass. When this mixture is sprayed on top of a roof, it settles as a solid membrane.

The mixture dries instantly after it is applied to a roof and, as it expands, it makes the roof weather and watertight. Since the material is so lightweight, the structure remains intact. Once the SPF mixture is applied according to the suitable thickness, layers of elastomeric coating and granules are applied on top to protect the material from the sun’s rays. SPF can oxidize and get damaged otherwise. The layer thickens and can then be walked on for maintenance or other purposes.

Benefits of Commercial Foam Roofs in Phoenix

As far as commercial roofing systems go, a commercial foam roofing system can allow you to save energy and reduce costs because of the following reasons:

Excellent R-value

As mentioned before, a foam roof is quite dense in structure which makes it thermal resistant. This is what is known as its R-value. Commercial foam roofing material has an R-value of 6.25/inch so if a roof requires an R19 insulation value, it will require 3 inches of this foam. As it is applied on top of the substrate, it reduces thermal expansion/contractions and reduces chances of condensation from forming underside.

With the right amount of coating (almost 11/2 inches), SPF roofing can keep your home cool in the summer and offer sufficient heat in the winter thus cutting down your energy bill significantly. However, depending on the type of roof, some parts might get more foam than others.


A foam roof can hold its shape and structure for years since it is chemically stable. If it is applied properly, it will remain as long as the structure is standing. It only requires re-coating every 10 to 15 years to sustain its resistance against UV rays.

Stops Leakage

Most roofs start to leak when water enters through exposed joints or seams in low-quality roofing material. If for instance, it’s made of a number of piles, water can travel between layers and start dripping from other parts of the building. Such leaks can be difficult to locate and repair. Since an SPF based roof or foam roofing is a large monolithic solid mass, it has no cracks or joints where water can get through. This prevents leaks from springing up even during the strongest of storms.

It’s Lightweight

Even though it looks heavy, SPF roofing material is a mere 1/3rd of the weight of standard roofing materials. It also offers a larger strength to weight ratio as compared to prefabricated sheet roofing systems.

Easy to Maintain

Since SPF roofs in Phoenix comprise of close-celled polyurethane foam they are dense enough to walk on so the occasional leakage is very easy and quick to repair. However, since this material is sprayed on, it contains no fasteners, joints or seams that can allow moisture to creep through and eliminates the need for counter flashing.

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.

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.
