If the time is approaching for you to replace the roof on your Phoenix-area commercial building, there are options for you to consider. One you might want to think about using is a sprayed foam roof. There are a number of benefits to using this type of roofing.
Quick and easy installation
A roofing job on a large commercial building using traditional roofing materials such as steel or aluminum can take several days depending on the size of the structure. However, most buildings can have a sprayed-on foam roof applied in one day. The application process also requires fewer workers and is safer than traditional roofing process, which means less likelihood of any accidents or workers going down with heat-related problems.
Spray foam roofing is among the most energy-efficient roofing processes there is. The spray foam acts as insulation, keeping the heat out and the cool in during the hot Arizona summers. Studies have shown that spray foam roofing can cut energy costs by up to 30 percent.
Another benefit of spray foam roofing is that it lasts a lot longer than most conventional roofing materials, as long as you maintain it properly. With periodic reapplications, foam roofing can last 50 years or more, whereas most other roofs using other types of materials usually only last 20-30 years.
Spray foam roofs are seamless and have no breaks where water can find a place to get in. Such roofs also use special sealants that make it pretty much impossible for water to penetrate the surface. With traditional roofing, water infiltration is an issue anytime there is damage or as the roof degrades over time.
Spray foam roofing is better for the environment than other types of roofing. Many types of roofing have asphalt in them, which is a petroleum-based material. Conventional roofing also has several layers, which means there is more waste generated. Neither of those things is an issue with spray foam. Spray foam roofing also uses no chlorofluorocarbons and has a very low amount of volatile organic compounds.
