Foam roofing systems are viable options that not many homeowners know exist. They are, after all, quite uncommon. They offer many advantages over gravel and other surfacing styles. Stapleton Roofing, your trusted roofing company in Phoenix, presents their features and why you should seriously consider them for your next roofing project.
Foam roofing is set as a liquid, allowing it to expand and form a protective barrier around pipes and vents. It forms an impenetrable wedge, leaving these penetrations “high and dry.” It insulates and seals even the hardest-to-reach areas from where leaks originate. It works well on commercial properties, where roofing perforations are common. Foam roofing is a self-flashing material, so there’s no more need for other flashing. Installation time on an average-sized residential roof only takes about a day.
No Need for Additional Structural Support
Foam roofing weighs only about one-eighth of traditional roofing materials. Its light weight makes handling easy and offers cost savings. There’s no more need for more construction work to add structural supports. Stapleton Roofing, your local roofing contractor, can install it onto your existing roof. It installs and sets on anything, even on existing tar-and-gravel roofs.
Easy Maintenance and Proven Durability
Foam roofing needs minimal upkeep. You can expect it to save you money on maintenance down the line. Although it doesn’t need a lot of care, it is still durable enough to resist damage from the elements for many years. In fact, it even has a rigid and durable surface on which you can walk.
Foam roofing, with the proper coating, is very effective at reflecting heat from the sun. It helps to reduce heat trapped in urban areas, also known as the urban heat island effect. This means lower energy bills. A “green” roof system should not only save energy, but also last long. With proper maintenance of the upper coating layer, this roof will last the life of the building.
