Polyurethane Foam Roofing Advantages
Polyurethane foam roofing has been used commercially for more than 45 years but has only recently become popular with business owners recently. Its popularity likely has increased due to the fact that it is a cost-effective, efficient roofing option. If your old roof is starting to show its age, switching to foam material could have numerous advantages. For example:
- Waterproof seal – Foam roofs do not have any seams, and the material itself forms a tight seal around any vents or pipes in the roof. These seals are waterproof, ensuring no damage is incurred due to a storm.
- Insulation – Spray Foam is the perfect insulator for your business, which can significantly reduce heating and cooling costs each month.
- Durable – Polyurethane foam roofs never wear out when maintained properly. You should have the roof recoated every five years to ensure it remains in top condition, but the material is durable and can withstand weather and water for decades to come.
Polyurethane Foam Roofing Disadvantages
Polyurethane foam roofing comes with some disadvantages. First, this type of roofing typically takes longer to install. It also requires incredibly precise application — meaning that the technician installing the roof should have years of experience in foam roofing. In addition, polyurethane foam roofing can cost more than other roofing systems. If you decide to switch roofing materials, polyurethane foam roofing is often hard to remove. Lastly, because of the specialized nature of polyurethane foam roofing installation, you are more likely to face roofing installation errors with this material than with any others.
