SPF, also known as sprayed polyurethane foam, is a combination of two different materials- polyol and isocyanate. We utilize a heated spray-mixer to combine these ingredients at their proper temperatures, ratios, and consistencies in order to achieve the SPF blend we use to protect your roof from the elements. These chemicals get moved through a proportion measuring pump system and are fed into a heater. At this point, the two heated chemicals are mixed at the appropriate ratio and then channeled into a spray gun attached to the pumping system. This kind of roofing must be applied to a clean, dry surface because of the nature of these compounds. Unlike its SSP counterpart, which requires less stringent installation criteria. However, SPF is capable of maintaining structural integrity even under the massive assault of hurricane-force winds. This makes SPF ideal for protecting your roof if your location exists in an area prone to harsh weather. Here’s a few more facts about SPF:
- Self Flashing
- Easily repaired and maintained
- Energy Saving
