The 2021 Hurricane season is closing in, and it’s time to consider hurricane resistant roofing; Polo International can help! First a bit about who we are, and why you can trust us as your supplier of hurricane-resistant roofing. Polo international’s primary product for protecting roofs throughout most of the country, and the year is actually our Silicone roofing product. Between our main products, we have sold and installed well over 50 million square feet of our products throughout the USA, as our products are trusted and tested time and time again passing with flying colors.
Though silicone single ply is our primary installed product, it does not offer the same level of weather protection of SPF- sprayed polyurethane foam. Today we wanted to take some time to explain how SPF, or Foam Roofing, can help you protect your property against the harsh and damaging winds and rain caused by extreme weather such as hurricanes.
Foam Roofing was already well known in the roofing industry as a product renowned for its ease of installation, effectiveness, and life cycle cost. More recently, however, the benefits of this amazing product have shown to last through the intensity of hurricanes. The best, and therefore toughest test for any roofing system is severe weather. Many recent Us hurricanes have shown that SPF is a tried and tested roofing material capable of withstanding the awesome forces produced by these storms better than any other roofing product available today.
Polo International is pleased to carry and install tested weather-resistant Roofing, more specifically Sprayed Polyurethane Foam. SPF roofing is an incredible, and field-proven way to protect roofs and walls against weather and natural disasters- particularly hurricanes.
This is in part due to SPF’s extremely high resistance to forceful wind uplift and blow-offs. SPF weather-resistant roofing is able to withstand much more high-impact wind and resist this force due to its spray-applied process and of course because of SPF’s strong adhesion. SPF also does not need fasteners or weak grip points like joints or edges, making it less reliant on specific architecture integrity to maintain its own integrity. Foam roofing is also water-resistant- this prevents moisture from seeping into, or underneath the SPF roofing. Additionally, SPF is resistant to progressive peeling failure. Lab tests actually proved that SPF’s uplift resistance exceeds the capacity of the test equipment at both Factory Mutual and underwriters laboratories over concrete decks. Here are some interesting factoids about SPF:
- Can withstand winds-force speeds over 200mph
- One complete, seamless seal
- Reduce energy bills by up to 40% per month
- 20-year renewable warranties
