Benefits of Foam Roofing
There are many benefits to installing foam roofing in your South Florida home. Some of the major benefits include:
Reduced Energy Bills
Because foam roofing provides exceptional insulation abilities, your energy bills are greatly reduced. This is because foam consists of suspended aluminum bits that reflect the UV rays. This, in turn, requires less heating to keep the house warm and less cooling to keep the house cool.
Waterproof roofing is becoming more and more popular, especially in a state like Florida where we tend to see frequent heavy rains and strong winds. Foam is actually one of the best insulators out there because the closed-cell foam is one of the only materials that does not soak up water.
Many people would not think of foam as being resistant to water. However, when the foam is applied, it starts as a liquid and then turns into a single membrane. This material then covers the entire roof to prevent any joints or seams arising. Water usually seeps into the ceilings through joints or seams, so foam roofing is almost leakproof because there is no way for water to soak through.
Flexible Installation Process
The installation process for certain roofing types can be a tedious process. However, when it comes to foam, the roofing process is simple and fairly easy. Foam can be installed on either existing roofing or new roofing projects. This is much less expensive than having to completely tear off and replace an existing roof.
Because foam roofing can be implemented on existing roofs, the existing roof or area must be prepared first. Instead of totally removing the existing roof, the roofing specialist will rid the area of all debris, such as dirt, dust or any other contaminants. In many cases, the specialist will use an air pressure tool or vacuum the area. In some cases, sweeping the area may even be adequate.
The process involves two layers, where the first is sprayed onto the existing roof area. The first layer is combined of two liquids that form a foam. This foam expands into 20 times the size that then forms a solid. Once this is completed, an SPF layer is added. This is to ensure the roofing material will remain resistant to UV rays to avoid damage. This layer also makes the roofing fireproof and helps prevent damage from moisture and other forms of debris.
Durability and Longevity
When you think of foam, you typically do not think of durability and longevity. However, foam is actually able to endure the wear and tear that comes from when a structure expands and contracts due to weather and other natural elements.
Helps Move Rain Toward Appropriate Areas
Florida tends to experience frequent rainfall, which is where foam roofing comes in handy. Foam roofing helps to form a type of slope that helps direct rainfall toward the drains. Because of this, water accumulation is minimized, and leakage and flooding are prevented.
Foam Roofing Materials and Roof Repair Services
Foam roofing is applied in liquid form so it can be an excellent choice for low-slope roofs with nooks that may be difficult to cover with conventional roofing materials. The material is very light weight which makes it a good selection for older buildings and some foam roofing products can withstand winds up to 300 mph – an asset in areas that may be subjected to strong storms. However, not all commercial buildings are good candidates for the material as it can be damaged by foot traffic and birds or small animals.
