All About Foam Roof Systems in Denver
Foam Roofing Systems provide many benefits to building owners in and around Denver. The two most prominent benefits are waterproofing/leak prevention and insulation value. Many additional benefits also exist such as superior compressive strength, lightweight, self-flashing, durable and long lasting.
Spray foam roofing technology adheres to just about everything. It can be installed over concrete, wood, steel, and most existing roof systems, which saves on the expense of roof removal and landfill fees. Rhino Roofing installers can apply spray foam to a tapered roof system, which eliminates the need for costly tapered insulation systems. The cants and vertical wall terminations are also spray applied making them an integral part of the roof system and minimizing additional component costs.
BENEFITS OF FOAM ROOFS:
- Leak free monolithic seal over your entire roof deck
- High insulation value / rapid payback with energy savings
- Strong adhesion
- Wind uplift resistance
- Weather resistant
- Lightweight and high strength
- UL and FM approved systems
Turns from Liquid to Solid Monolithic Protective Roof Shell
Sprayed Polyurethane Foam is applied as a liquid using plural-component spray equipment to fill cracks and crevices. It then expands approximately 30 times its original liquid volume to form a hard, closed cell monolithic roof surface.
The Polyurethane Foam dries within seconds after applied to the roof surface. Its expansion results in a weather tight roofing membrane that is fully adhered to the substrate. Because of polyurethane’s lightweight it adds little additional weight to the structure and is often used in remedial applications.
Polyurethane Foam has a history of more than 35 years as a maintainable roofing medium. Polyurethane Foam adds excellent insulation value to the structure and utility bills can reflect the difference.
Once the foam has been applied to the proper thickness and finish specifications, a protective layer of elastomeric coating or gravel is applied. This protective layer produces a durable weather resistant surface and that can be walked on for normal maintenance.
Spray Foam Roof Sustainability
Spray polyurethane foam roofing can last 30 years or more. Sustainable spray foam not only saves money every month by lowering utility bills, it significantly reduces the need for future roof replacement.
Spray polyurethane foam helps to keep energy costs low because it:
- is applied above the roof deck;
- reduces or eliminates thermal bridging;
- has a very high aged R-value; and
- is typically coated with light-colored, reflective coatings.
