In today’s technological era, the life of urban society has been greatly transformed and has produced synergistic effect on the lifestyles. From the infrastructure development to the home architecture every aspect of life is changing and traversing towards greater efficiency as well as cost-effectiveness. All these developments are intended to saving money as well as enforce proper utilization of the natural resources. If you observe the modern day homes, you can find almost all aspects of energy conservation, even on the rooftops. You won’t find traditional roofs everywhere, but you will find technologically upgraded devices and roof improvement accessories that conserve energy.
One of the best methods of conserving energy is the use of polyurethane foam for commercial and residential roofing. Naturally smooth polyurethane foam roofs are flawless in appearance. They will make your house more attractive, colorful and sparkling.
Sprayed polyurethane foam (SPF) roofing is one of the most cost-effective, environmentally friendly, durable roofing systems on the market today. The polyurethane foam roofs offer remarkable quality, durability and longevity.
Custom-design SPF foam and coating systems cater to specific geographical location and weather conditions. This foam also can be applied to interior walls for even more energy savings. The resulting seam-free foam barrier does the following:
- Eliminates air infiltration, the leading cause of energy loss
- Provides a durable insulation value of R-6 per inch
- Adds structural strength without adding much weight
- Can be applied to most existing roof surfaces
- Withstands hurricane-force winds
- Can easily correct damaged substrate and/or poor drainage
- Exudes water because of the foam’s closed-cell insulation properties
- Minimizes sound transmission
- Easily repairs or recoats
Sprayed polyurethane foam is a real choice for multiple waterproofing applications. Because it is composed of billions of closely held cells, it acts as a perfect air barrier for the home, restricting dust, unwanted elements, bugs, and moisture. Polyurethane foam is also lightweight and can be applied over most existing roof systems without exceeding the structural load capacity. It’s striking robust, easily withstanding light foot traffic and other weight requirements. Foam systems can conform to the most stringent requirements for a variety of industry groups and are recognized by the International Conference of Building Officials. Foam enveloping provides excellent insulation value and a smooth, durable, seam-free barrier against the elements when coated with other high quality coating systems. This extraordinary ability of foam substantially reduces dew point problems. It is also preferred because of its high strength and home protecting features. It is a perfect choice no matter what the climate, as it insulates during the warm and cool months.
