Foam and Flat Roofing Options and their Estimate Costs

Here are some durable commercial, industrial and flat roofing options worth considering. 

Foam Roofing

Foam roofing is a reliable way of shielding your roof against corrosion and weather damage. It involves spraying a single-layer of polyurethane foam on a roof structure to keep away elements such as water, heat, and airflow that would otherwise deteriorate your roof over time. Special equipment, the Max-X Foam Gun, is used to spread the foam evenly. The poly foam bonds seamlessly with various types of roofing materials. 

You can get all these advantages and much more by installing a Spray Polyurethane Foam roof for approximately $4 per square foot, or $7 including the labor charges. The approximate total cost for a 1200sq. ft. home ranges between $2,400 and $3,600. Reach out to Foam Express Roofing Inc. to get more details on installing an SPF roof on your commercial building.

Flat Roofing

There are several flat roofing options such as EPDM, PVC, Modified Bitumen, and Built-up roof (BUR) among many others. BUR roofs are the most common types because they are the most economical. The entire roof is built with concrete just like the walls. In some cases, gravel may be applied at the top to improve their aesthetics. Such roofs cannot be placed on an already inhabited premise due to the dangers and commotion associated with their installation. They cost roughly $0.50 to $0.70 per square foot.

PVC is also very effective due to its high reflectivity and durability. These roofs are impermeable to water and can withstand water ponding. However, they are applied in rolls which leave seams that can trigger a roof failure. The EPDM is almost similar to PVC roofs except for the fact that they are made of a rubber compound. They cost approximately $2-$3 per square foot to install.

The Modified Bitumen roof is a single-ply material laid on the roof surface and heated with a blowtorch to stick. However, they are less resistant to tearing and foot traffic. For a 1200 square foot building to be roofed, you will have to part away with $4,800 ($2 per sq. ft.).

These are some of the roofing options to choose from. The perfect roofing material should be durable enough to eliminate the need for frequent replacement, and well insulated to reduce energy costs.
