There are quite a few benefits of Spray Foam Roofing systems including:

✓ Energy Efficient – SPF delivers thermal, air, and moisture barriers to provide the highest R-value per inch.

✓ Durable – The foam material can expand and contract with the building, decreasing the likelihood of cracks and splitting.

✓Seamless and Waterproof – The continuous solid surface does not require joints or seams, removing the most vulnerable area for leaking.

✓Environmentally Friendly – In most cases, there is minimal stripping of the original roof – eliminating the need for costly roof tear-offs and waste.

How Long Do Spray Foam Roofs Last?

The lifespan of roofing systems can vary greatly depending on the climate they’re in. Spray foam roofs typically have an average lifespan of 15 to 20 years, but we’ve seen foam roofs that are over 55 years old and still in great condition.

One major advantage of spray foam roofs is that they can be renewed indefinitely, as long as they receive routine care and maintenance. However, like any roofing material, regular upkeep is crucial to extend its lifespan. Eventually, all roofing materials will degrade to a point where replacement is necessary.

To make a spray foam roof last indefinitely, the key is to protect it from ultraviolet (UV) light. UV light is the biggest threat to polyurethane foam, and without protection, the foam will absorb water and become damaged. Contrary to popular belief, the coating over a spray foam roof is not a waterproof barrier, but rather it’s designed to shield the foam from the sun’s harmful rays.

By protecting your spray foam roof from UV light, you can ensure that it will remain a reliable insulator and waterproof barrier for many years to come.
