That product is called SSP, or Sprayed Polyurethane Foam. But, why is this product so great, and why use it instead of or in lieu of SSP? Read on to learn more!
SPF roofing is growing in popularity due to its incredible strong resistance to natural forces like winds and rain. In other words, Polyurethane foam is an increasingly more and more popular method of roofing due in no small part to its durability and heating protection. Polo International has installed SPF and silicone roofing solutions across more than 50 million square feet of roofing nationwide. While less universal than our SSP product, SPF has far more durability for extreme situations or areas that might encounter rough weather or natural issues s a lot more often. Places like South Florida which are prone to hurricanes, Seattle which experiences rain so constantly that there’s always moisture exposure, and even other areas that deal with tornados like in the midwest.
So what really is SPF? SPF is a mix of two different chemicals- polyol and isocyanate. These two chemicals are moved through a pump which also acts as a proportion system and heater to feed the mix as a liquid through an attached spray gun. The substance is then sprayed as a single, continuous membrane that has a very high level of stability. In order for this process to be successful, the substance must be applied to a roof that is efficiently cleaned, well dried, and free of external contaminants such as debris, greases, or oils. This allows the product to properly bond. The surface must also be properly fastened to the substrate according to the local building code. Afterward, a protective topcoat is required, and usually, this is then sprayed on. The topcoat can however also be applied with hand rollers or power rollers.
Now that we know what it is, how does SPF help with the aforementioned bad weather, and heating solutions? The SPF coating is extremely durable. It is self-flashing, and this helps it effectively seal out any possible leaks. The additional top coating provides a powerful layer of weather protection and can be applied as a slope to drain water effectively. Maintenance costs are also a factor, as maintaining SPF roofing is simple and inexpensive. Generally, any damages can simply be repaired with quality caulking. However the reason most choose to go with Polyurethane foam as a roofing solution is the energy savings yielded from the thermal insulation provided by the compound. No other roofing material as such a great insulator- and the costs in reduced air conditioning and therefore electrical usage usually pay for the roofing service in around 4.5 years.
