Pros and Cons to Spray Polyurethane Foam Roofing

complex roof with SPF coating

Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) roofing is a great way to prolong the life of your roof and provide insulation while reducing installation and maintenance costs. 

SPF consists of two layers of protection. The first layer is applied using a sprayer that gives a seamless, monolithic waterproof barrier and will adhere to most vertical or horizontal substrates. The second layer is a protecting coat that is cementitious, silicone, urethane, acrylic or polyurea. Here are some pros and cons of spray foam roofing.

Pros of SPF Roofing:

  • Waterproof and resistant to hail and wind damage
  • High r-value
  • Can improve indoor air quality by reducing infiltration of air pollutants 
  • Reduces building movement and thermal shock since insulation is on the outside 
  • Effective in cold, tropical, subtropical and desert climates
  • Renewable roof system with proper annual maintenance 

Cons of SPF Roofing: 

  • Adequate drainage is necessary 
  • Must be installed during specific weather conditions
