5 Reasons To Consider Commercial Spray Foam Roofing

Posted on: 30 August 2021

Do you own a commercial property that is in need of a new roof? If so, it is worth your time to explore your material options. Commercial spray foam roofing is a budget-friendly option for reinforcing your current roof. It has a variety of benefits that most commercial property owners can appreciate. The following points represent a few of the key benefits.

Easy and Quick Installation

One of the burdens of getting a traditional new roof installation is that it sometimes interferes with business operations. Depending on the size of a property, some projects can be completed over a weekend. However, larger properties may face obstacles. A commercial spray foam roof project can be completed quickly. 

No Tear-off Needed

The foam material is sprayed over existing roofing materials. This creates a barrier that reinforces the integrity of the underlying roofing materials. The project can be completed faster because the existing roof materials do not need to be torn off and replaced. Most commercial property owners want to save capital. Choosing a commercial spray foam roof will allow savings when compared to a traditional roof replacement. The costs of labor, disposal of extracted roofing materials, cost of new roof materials, and equipment to complete the project can account for the savings.


The seams in traditional roofing materials can cause leaks when they separate. This usually happens when roofs are not maintained. There are no seams present in a spray foam roof because there are not sections of roofing material other than the ones from the older roofing material, which get covered by the foam.

Long-Lasting and Minimal Repairs

These foam coatings are long-lasting. The material can last for decades with minimal repairs. Repairs that can be expected are simple and may involve patching small areas of damage or reapplication of the protective coating.

Energy Efficient

Commercial spray foam roofing materials have a high R-value. This is the measurement used to rate how much water it would take to permeate a roofing material and how much wind it would take to negatively impact the material. High R-values are a good indicator of strong materials and good insulation, and spray foam ranks high.

There are a number of spray foam roofing options. A roofer is a good resource to use to determine the best material for your building. This will be based on a number of factors including budget and expectations. One unique benefit of a commercial spray foam roof is that the material can be applied to any type of roof regardless of the roof's design.
