Foam Experts Roofing specializes in one type of roofing: sprayed polyurethane foam roofing.Why Urethane
The Urethane Advantages
- Efficiency – Thermal resistance is the best measure of the efficiency
of the insulation systems and urethane foam has proven to be the most efficient thermal insulation commercially available.
- Versatility – In new buildings, urethane foam can be used with equal facility on roofs
and on sidewalls. On older structures, it can replace conventional built-up roofs with a one-piece, non shrinking monolithic
cover that not only improves the insulation value of the roof but also permanently repairs leaks and other problems.
- Lower construction costs – On new buildings, urethane foam's light weight (only two
percent of conventional materials) means lighter roofs can be installed, which frequently means lighter, simpler materials
can be used throughout the building, substantially lowering cost of construction.
Urethane foam offers a number of advantages beyond its excellent insulating value and light weight:SEAMLESS
Sprayed on urethane foam has neither joints nor seams, nor the heat and water leakage problems associated with them. VERSATILE
Several types of urethane foam are available. Each has characteristics to meet the
needs of a specific application. RIGIDITY
Urethane foam will not sag, buckle, pack down
or mat with ordinary use. It thus retains its insulating value for the life of the installation.FLEXIBILE
Urethane foam moves with a structure's normal expansion and contraction without cracking or otherwise breaking down.INERT
Urethane foam is an inert substance, although it must be protected from direct sunlight.
It is odorless, has no nutritive value to rodents or insects and will not break down from attack by either mildew or fungi.WATER TIGHT
When covered with protective coating, urethane foam will not absorb water.
