What is Spray Foam Roofing?
Spray foam roofing, as the name suggests, consists of spraying a liquid across a roof that will expand into a solid foam. This spray foam is applied across an existing roof and can be used in new roof construction, roof repair, or re-roofing applications.
This material is formally called Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) and is composed of a polyol/resin and an isocyanate which are mixed on-site. This technology has actually been around since the 1960s but has undergone many changes to become more reliable and applicable to all climates.

The Benefits of Spray Foam Roofing
So spray foam roofing uses a simple chemical reaction and spray technology to protect commercial and industrial roofs. But what are the benefits of SPF over other roof coatings or no coating at all? Below are just some of the benefits you can expect from our spray foam roofing services:
Lightweight, Exceptional Roof Insulation
One of the main benefits of spray foam roofing systems is that they are incredibly light and boast a very high R-value. In terms of weight, the lightweight nature of spray foam means that your roof experiences less wear over time. This translates to better performance and longevity over the lifetime of your roof.
The stellar insulation can be seen in the product’s R-value, which is a way to measure a material’s resistance to heat flow. The higher the value, the more insulating capacity the material has. The average R-vale for SPF is around 6.5 per inch while competing materials range from 0 to 5.5 per inch. SPF has one of the highest values around, which translates to lower HVAC costs and more money saved. In as little as 5 years, your SPF roof can pay for itself in energy savings!
No More Flashing Leaks
One of the greatest advantages of SPF roofing is that leaks can be handled incredibly quickly. How quickly? An average-sized penetration on a conventional roofing system can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to flash. Compare that with spray foam which can be applied in about 2-3 minutes!
Eliminates Ponding Water
Ponding water is a big threat to roofs, applying constant pressure and dissolution that can lead to sagging or leaks. Since SPF roofing is chemically stable, it means that it resists water and ponding/dissolving over time.
Lower Your Building's Temperature
In addition to the insulation benefits, there are some other properties of spray foam roofing that lead to lower temperatures:
- Rigidity: Spray foam roofs are rigid despite being lightweight, which means they won’t sag or pack down. This keeps your roof consistent and keeps your roof from having hot spots.
- Flexibility: Since El Paso has scorching hot summers and frigid winters, your roofing system needs to be flexible. SPF systems can expand and contract while keeping the overall structure intact.
- Watertight: SPF is seamless and composed of countless small, closed cells, that resist water, vapor, and other penetrating materials. This is compounded with the use of quality elastomeric roof coatings.
One common misconception of spray foam roofing is that it may not be durable or long-lasting, but that absolutely isn’t true. Spray foam roofing systems can, with proper installation and maintenance, can last 15-20 years or more. Once the system starts to go, more spray foam can be applied and even bolstered with additional protections for enhanced longevity. Maintenance is very easy compared to other systems, as well.
Installation Takes Place Quickly & Efficiently
To top off the laundry list of benefits that SPF roofs provide, installation is a very quick and efficient process. Since it simply involves spraying the chemical concoction over the existing roof, much less time and effort are required when compared to other systems. This translates to lower labor costs and less disruption to your business.
