Spray Foam Roofing
What is Spray Foam Roofing?
Spray foam roofing (SPF roofing) is a polyurethane foam that is sprayed onto roofing structures in a liquid form but expands into a foam to create a durable and solid layer on top of nearly any roofing surface. Using a spray foam roofing system ensures that your commercial roof is seamlessly protected by bonding around pipes, vents, edges, and any other form of roofing penetration.
This helps to keep your structure water-tight and protected. When applied by an expert spray foam roofing contractor, SPF roofing can provide years of excellent roof protection with additional insulative value. It can also be used to extend the service life span of an existing roof without having to resort to expensive and messy processes or repairs.
While this roofing system has been used for years, it is not especially common. Not every contractor is a spray foam roofing contractor. If you’re looking to have it done and have it done right, look no further than us!

What are the Pros of Spray Foam Roofing?
UNIFLEX Fluid Applied Roofing Systems provide so many great benefits to keep your roofing system intact and save you from the frustrations of expensive damage repairs. Here are just a few of the reasons that we’ve chosen to provide fluid applied roofing services to our customers.
One of the biggest pros of spray foam roofing systems is how easy it is to install. SPF roofing can save you both time and money. The preparation process for applying this kind of roofing is far less troublesome than other types of roofing systems. Instead of stripping your roof, the roof can be prepped for the foam with a simple pressure wash cleaning to strip away any existing dust and dirt.
After the prep, if applied by an expert spray foam contractor, the application of spray foam is quick and easy! Best of all, it can be applied without interrupting the day-to-day goings-on in your business or facility. It is nowhere near as loud and disruptive as construction and hammer-and-nail repairs.
Aside from providing a seamless and waterproof surface to your commercial roofing structure, spray foam roofing comes with many other benefits. When applied by an expert spray foam roofing contractor, SPF roofing should not only last an exceptionally long time, but it also saves energy in the process!
In addition to this, the roofing is applied using eco-friendly solutions, installation methods, and cleaning processes. The process of applying SPF roofing also creates little to no waste. There is minimal stripping of the roof and the system helps you to avoid full tear-offs, completely eliminating the opportunity for more waste. All of these factors make spray foam roofing systems truly “green”.
Spray foam roofing systems are lightweight and less expensive than other roof systems. It is cheaper per square foot and provides work of amazing quality. It does all of this while using far less product. Pounds per square foot are reduced to only ounces, making it an efficient material to work with regardless of the size of your roof!
Additionally, foam roofs make for great insulators. It is one of the only insulations that doesn’t absorb water. It also helps to reduce your facility’s heating and cooling energy loads during both summer and winter seasons. The topcoat for this product is also UV light resistant, ensuring that your foam roofing won’t be damaged by constant sun exposure.
Another great advantage to foam roofs is that they can be applied to nearly any substrate. Once the surface is properly cleaned, SPF roofing can be applied over shingles, asphalt, metal, concrete, or wood. No matter what your roof is made of, this kind of system is for you! Not only that, but the huge advantage of using this roofing type is the fact that it is totally seamless and fully bonded. It is also extremely flexible and vapor permeable. These features allow the substrate to be a total watertight roof, keeping your facility or business safe from weather and water damage.
Do you have a uniquely shaped roof? No problem. This roofing system makes detailing complex shapes very easy, making it a perfect system for any kind of structure. It will work no matter the shape because it is fluid-applied. When sprayed correctly by an expert spray foam roofing contractor, it will mold to any and every shape without leaving any joints, bubbles, laps, or vulnerable seals. UNIFLEX spray foam roofing is resistant to blistering, cracking, or flaking, and protects your roof from further damage or degradation.
One of the best benefits of this product is its longevity. As mentioned before, when applied by an expert spray foam roofing contractor, it can provide decades of excellent protection to your facility. Of course, the key to this is maintenance. SPF roofing should be inspected bi-annually. It is recommended to have it inspected in the spring and once again in the fall whether there are damages or not.
Additional inspections are also recommended after any events that may have caused serious damage. Luckily, Greenleaf Fluid-Applied Roofing offers both annual and bi-annual inspection and maintenance for seamless roofing systems.
