Top 3 Advantages of Installing a Foam Roof

Most large commercial buildings have metal or asphalt roofs while smaller buildings may have shingled roofs. These all have some disadvantages when it comes to cost, maintenance and longevity. There is an alternative: a sprayed-on foam roof. There are several advantages to using this type of roof on your commercial building.

Ease and speed of installation
Depending on the size of your building, a sprayed-on foam roof may be able to be installed in a single day, two if it is a large building. Metal roofs can take weeks to install on larger buildings, and even shingled roofs take more than a day on all but the smallest structures. Having a short installation time frame helps to mitigate the business interruption that comes with having a new foam roof installed and is a huge advantage.

Resists water better
Foam roofs tend to be more durable than other types of roofing, especially when it comes to keeping out water. Because foam roofs are installed essentially as one piece with no seams or cracks, there is less chance of water penetrating them and causing leaks. The company installing your roof also will put an additional coating on it that helps to make it watertight.

Traditional roofs usually last no more than 25 years or so and then have to be replaced because no amount of maintenance can keep them going. With a foam roof, this is not an issue, however. Foam roofs that are properly maintained can last 30 years, 40 years and beyond. The main maintenance needed to keep your foam roof lasting is to reapply the sealant every few years.
