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.

We can use thicker applications for extra insulation depending on your needs.

What Steps are Important for Spray Foam Roof Repair in AZ?

The first step for foam roof repair in Phoenix is using a machine to heat isocyanate and polyol. These are essential to create polyurethane. Once heated, we use a spray gun for the application of foam. Initially, we spray the foam in a liquid form to ensure a seamless coat for your entire roof resulting in maximum stability. It is critical your roof surface is free of impurities including chemicals and oil.

Once we have finished spraying the polyurethane for your foam roof repair, we add another layer to ensure solar protection. The second coating of foam on your roof adds extra strength.

Pros and Cons of Urethane Foam Roofing in Phoenix

Pros

• Easy installation saves you both time and money. Phoenix residential foam roofing is fast, and our application process will not interrupt your daily routine.

• The application of spray polyurethane foam is accomplished by spraying the substance directly onto your roof so it can expand into foam. This enables the foam to conform regardless of the type and shape of your roof. Once your roof is clean, we can spray foam directly over wood, metal, concrete and shingles.

• Foam roofing in Phoenix AZ offers moisture, air and thermal barriers. You receive better insulation for your home and energy efficiency. Your roof will keep heat out during the summer while keeping it in throughout the winter. This decreases your energy costs. The foam is protected by the silicone top coating which decreases heat absorption and resists UV light.

• Once our Phoenix foam roofing contractors have installed your roof, minimum repair and preventative maintenance are required. If your roof is maintained correctly, it can last for more than 50 years. Your foam roof should be inspected at least twice per year, in the spring and fall.

If you experience any event potentially resulting in damage to your roof, we recommend an additional inspection. If foam roof repair is necessary for silicone recoating, no tear-off is necessary for your existing materials. Your new coat is applied directly over your current roofing system.

• The main cause of leaks requiring foam roof repair in Phoenix are penetrations and seams. This vulnerability is eliminated with SPF. Since urethane foam roofing is applied in liquid form, we can fill cracks, seams and gaps in your existing substrate and roof. The polyurethane application allows us to level your roof to help prevent ponding water.

• Little to no waste is created by your SPF roof during its lifetime. In most instances, minimal stripping of your original roof is necessary. Your SPF roofing system is installed on top. This eliminates both waste and expensive roof tear-offs.

Cons

• Not all Phoenix foam roofing contractors are equal. The spray foam application must be done correctly from the start. Whichever foam roofing contractor you choose must thoroughly understand the chemicals involved and apply the foam with precision.

• The installation window for Phoenix residential foam roofing is limited. Specific weather conditions are necessary before SPF can be sprayed. If there is visible dampness, surface moisture, frost or ice, SPF must not be sprayed. If the contractor proceeds anyway, the foam roof will not be applied correctly and there will be significant issues.
