Does your commercial building need a new roof? If so, spray foam roofing installed by Klaus Roofing Systems by J Smegal can be a very cost-effective option.

Spray foam technology has been evolving since its initial development over 70 years ago. Today, different spray foam products are used as insulation, sealants, adhesives, and even in soil consolidation and slab-raising applications. The spray foam used as finished roofing material is a two-part closed-cell foam with a relatively high density that enhances the durability, thermal resistance, and moisture resistance of commercial roofing. Closed-cell roofing foam can also be used to insulate new construction buildings and additions.

What is closed-cell spray foam insulation?

Closed-cell roofing foam is a type of insulation that is applied using a spray application method. The two primary components of spray foam roofing insulation are polyurethane and a blowing agent. When these elements are combined and sprayed onto a surface, a chemical reaction occurs, causing the mixture to expand and harden into a rigid foam.

The term "closed-cell" refers to the cellular structure of the foam. In closed-cell insulation, the cells are tightly sealed, which prevents the gas within them from easily escaping. This creates a dense and compact foam material with a high insulation value.

How spray foam roofing works

Spray foam insulation for commercial buildings in MA

Spray foam roofing provides a seamless protective surface with excellent insulation value.

Spray foam roofing is an excellent solution for existing roof recovery and new construction projects, whether it's a commercial roof or a home with a metal, flat, or low-slope roof.

The spray foam installation process starts with prepping the existing roofing material. In the case of tar and gravel roofs, the gravel is carefully swept off and the roof is thoroughly vacuumed. Next, a two to three-inch layer of high-density closed-cell roofing foam is applied directly to the roof decking. A generous application of silicone is then applied to provide protection against UV rays. This coating serves as a safeguard while the spray foam insulation offers both thermal insulation and waterproofing properties.

Since the foam conforms to the roof's shape, some puddling is expected. However, drainage is maintained to ensure water flows smoothly toward the existing roof drains. In some cases, additional drainage systems may be installed to ensure there are no water issues. Once completed, you will have a highly efficient and completely waterproof roof.

Advantages of commercial spray foam roofing insulation

  • Versatile: Spray foam roofing can be used for commercial and new construction applications. It can also be used as a roof recovery or re-roofing option.
  • Energy Efficient: The high insulation value of spray foam roofing offers significant energy savings and can greatly reduce heating and cooling costs.
  • Seamless: Spray foam roofing creates a continuous layer of finished roofing material. There are no gaps, cracks, or seams that can leak, and most flashing details can be eliminated.
  • Lightweight: Closed-cell roofing foam will not stress the existing roof structure.
  • Proven Performance: With superior thermal protection and water resistance, spray foam insulation has proven to be an effective roofing solution for more than 35 years.
  • Durability: Spray foam roofing reinforces the strength and durability of the roof while providing outstanding resistance to wind uplift, impacts, hail damage, and structural sagging.
  • Fast Installation: Closed-cell roofing foam can be installed much quicker than other roofing systems, including metal and flat roofing.
  • No Tear-Off Required: When used for roof recovery projects, closed-cell roofing foam can typically be applied directly over old roofing materials, eliminating the need for messy tear-off work.
  • Low Maintenance: Renewing the UV-resistant coating is usually the only upkeep required.

Spray foam insulation for new construction

Spray foam insulation applied underneath a concrete slab

When applied under a concrete slab, spray foam insulation creates a thermal barrier that improves the efficiency and comfort of the space above.

Did you know most heat loss in a home is through the attic? Increasing attic insulation is one of the most cost-effective steps to improve energy efficiency when building a new home.

High-efficiency attic insulation helps provide added thermal protection, lessens wasted energy, enhances comfort, and reduces noise levels throughout the home. It's also much more cost-effective to insulate effectively and correctly during new construction than to go back and retrofit later.

Spray foam insulation can also be used underneath concrete slabs where radiant heat systems will be installed. The spray foam insulation creates a thermal barrier that prevents heat loss through the ground. This improves the efficiency and effectiveness of the radiant heat system, allowing for more efficient heating of the space above the slab. It also helps reduce energy consumption and enhance the overall comfort of the building.
