4 Ways Spray Polyurethane Foam Roofing Can Save You Money
A new commercial roof is not a small purchase; whether you just purchased a new building or your aged roof is leaking, it’s daunting to think about jumping into such a significant investment. Many factors can affect the price of a spray polyurethane foam commercial roof; from the weather to the location to the material choices.
Here at West Roofing Systems, we’ve installed over 57,700,000 sq. feet of roofing domestically and internationally and during that time we have seen businesses save a lot of money from reduced installation costs to long-term energy savings by choosing SPF Roofing.
INSTALLATION COSTS – It can save you in time and money to install an SPF roof system over other types of systems. Commercial facilities can have up to two roof systems installed if you only have one current roof system on your building, there is no need to tear off your roof to install an SPF roof system. The SPF is simply applied directly to the existing roof system. This saves you money with contractor time and the cost of refuse disposal.
ENERGY EFFICIENCY – SPF roofing delivers thermal, air, and moisture barriers to provide the highest R-value per inch, which means the material provides better insulation for the building. The thicker you make the foam layer, the higher R-Value your roof will have. An R-value is the measure of insulation (resistance to heat flow) for material.
REFLECTIVE ROOFING – When the SPF layer has been completed, it is then sealed with a layer of silicone and embedded granules. These layers protect the roof and foam from UV light, weather, and impact. The light color reflects UV rays, saving buildings up to 35% in energy costs from not needing as much air conditioning to keep the facilities cool.
MAINTENANCE COSTS – You can save a lot of money by simply keeping up with the maintenance of your SPF roofing system. Once an SPF roof is installed, it requires minimal upkeep. If properly maintained, your SPF roof can last over 50 years.
