What You Need To Know About Sprayed Polyurethane Foam Roofing.
SPF (Spray Polyurethane Foam) is a spray-applied insulating foam that is installed as a liquid and then expands many times its original volume. A 100% chemical bond means a permanent, one piece, and watertight seal around roof penetrations and along edges.
SPF is a closed cell roofing and insulation material that forms a seamless, monolithic barrier that prevents air and water infiltration. SPF systems (Spray Polyurethane Foam) are referred to as "self-flashing" because they can be applied to vertical surfaces such as parapet walls and roof penetrations in a continuous manner, thus eliminating seams and cold joints - the main source of roof leaks.

Foam also lowers the surface temperature, on a summer day Polyurethane Foam is an average of about 100 degrees as compared to up to 200 degrees for traditional roofing systems, saving your cooling costs and stress on your HVAC units.
