Most flat roofs in Arizona are protected by foam, otherwise known as Polyurethane foam, roofing materials. While this can be one of the most expensive roofing materials, foam roofs can be the best. Foam roofs are typically applied by spraying a Polyurethane compound onto the roof and then sealing the top with a protective chemical. While the initial investment may be higher, it is typically the safest, most leak resistant, has highest energy efficiency, and easiest to maintain.
The foam is white so that it can reflect the suns rays away from the home, keeping the roof and attic cooler than other types of roofing materials. This will begin to earn back that initial investment in the form of lower utility bills immediately. In turn, having a cooler home means your air conditioner does not need to run as often. This reduces energy consumption and increases the life of your air conditioner.
Foam is very lightweight, and will exert less strain on the structure and trusses of your home. The Polyurethane materials also must maintain a minimum safety rating for fire safety. This is also a big plus when it comes to your families safety.
Because Polyurethane foam roofing is sprayed on it is seamless. No seams means there is no where for water to penetrate through the roof and into your home. Also, if over time the roof develops shallow areas for water to pool in, DNA Roofing can apply new material to ensure that water will properly drain off the roof.How many roofing products offer that kind of peace of mind?
Maintenance is easily performed on Polyurethane foam roofs. Since the material is coated with a elastomeric material to reflect the suns UV rays away from the roof. This coating will need to be applied again as the roof ages. This is a simple process that can ensure your roof lasts for decades to come. As the home owner it is safe to walk on the roof and clear the area of any debris that has collected on the roof. This can help to protect the roof, the roof coating and reduce standing water after storms. Always check with a DNA roofing professional to determine how often maintenance should be performed.
Older homes with Polyurethane foam roofing have gone 30+ years with the original material and routine maintenance. As with all products, Polyurethane foam roofing materials are only improving. While we can not say exactly how long your roof will last, it is safe to say that with proper installation and routine maintenance your roofing system should last at least 30 years. But as with all roofs, the proper installation is the key to making your homes roof last. This is especially evident when you look at some of the work performed during the last big hail storm.
