Spray Polyurethane Foam Roof Coating Systems

What is Spray Polyurethane Foam?

Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) Roofing systems are one of the best roofing systems that you can choose in California. SPF roofing systems not only provide an excellent waterproofing layer but also provides a high-R Value insulation layer at the same time. SPF systems are closed-cell polyurethane which means that they are waterproof by nature.  SPF systems are also fully adhered to provide the highest wind up-lift ratings of any roof system.   Spray polyurethane roof systems are also monolithic which provides you with a complete roof that has ZERO seams.  SPF roof systems are top coated with a cool roof coating of either acrylic, silicone, or a two-part polyurethane coating. Top coating the SPF provides reflectivity and also provides a cool roof element to the roof system. When applied properly, SPF roof systems can provide the best performance with the lowest lifecycle costs of any other roof system.

Preparation and Installation of Spray Foam Roof Coating Systems

At Superior Roofing Systems, we take immense pride in our meticulous approach to the preparation and installation of Spray Foam Roof Coating Systems for both commercial and residential properties. Our highly skilled team begins with a thorough assessment of your roof, ensuring that it is clean, dry, and free from any debris or contaminants. We understand that proper surface preparation is the foundation of a successful coating system. Once the surface is ready, we apply a carefully measured and evenly distributed layer of high-quality spray foam insulation, which not only adds an extra layer of insulation to your property but also serves as a seamless base for the coating. Finally, our expert technicians apply the selected roof coating with precision, taking into account factors such as weather conditions and specific coating requirements. The result is a durable, energy-efficient, and weather-resistant roofing solution that not only enhances the longevity of your roof but also contributes to improved energy efficiency for years to come. 

Below is a step-by-step explanation of how commercial SPF roof coatings are installed:

Roof Inspection: A comprehensive evaluation of the current roofing system is conducted to identify any existing damage or areas requiring repair. This step serves as the foundation for a successful installation.


Surface Preparation: Thoroughly cleaning the roof's surface is essential to eliminate any debris, dirt, or contaminants. Our team meticulously addresses any necessary repairs or issues, ensuring the roof substrate is in an optimal condition for the upcoming installation.


Priming (if needed): In some cases, the application of a primer may be necessary. This primer is meticulously applied to enhance the adhesion between the existing roof surface and the spray foam insulation, ensuring a strong and long-lasting bond.


Detailing and Flashing: Our experts pay meticulous attention to roofing details, including vents, HVAC units, parapets, and other protrusions. Precise installation of flashing is carried out to create watertight seals around these critical areas, preventing any potential leaks.

Spray Foam Insulation Application: The heart of the system involves the expert application of a high-quality spray foam insulation. Our skilled technicians ensure a uniform and even application, creating a seamless, airtight, and waterproof barrier that enhances the roof's thermal properties and structural integrity.


SPF Trimming and Shaping: Following the spray foam insulation application, it is trimmed and shaped to perfection. This step guarantees a smooth and level surface, ready to receive the final coating.


Coating Application: The chosen commercial roof coating is applied with precision, utilizing methods such as spraying, rolling, or brushing. Multiple coats are expertly applied to achieve uniform coverage, creating a protective barrier against UV rays, weather elements, and environmental factors.


Inspection and Quality Control: After coating application, a comprehensive inspection is conducted to ensure the highest quality standards are met. We verify that all seams are sealed correctly, and the installation is flawless.


Cleanup: We take pride in leaving your property in impeccable condition. All equipment, materials, and debris are meticulously removed from the site, ensuring your property is as clean as when we arrived.


Final Client Walkthrough: Before concluding the project, we conduct a final walkthrough with you, our valued client. We provide a detailed explanation of the work performed, address any questions or concerns you may have, and ensure your complete satisfaction with the newly installed Spray Foam Roof Coating System.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Commercial Spray Foam Roof Coating Systems

Spray Foam Roof Coatings offer a range of benefits and drawbacks that are important to consider when evaluating roofing options. Understanding these advantages and disadvantages can help you make an informed decision about whether this roofing system is the right choice for your needs.

Advantages of SPF Roof Coatings:

Outstanding Insulation: Spray Foam Roof Coating Systems provide exceptional thermal insulation properties. They help maintain a more consistent indoor temperature, which can lead to reduced heating and cooling costs.

Seamless and Waterproof: The application of spray foam creates a seamless and waterproof barrier on the roof's surface. This significantly reduces the risk of leaks and water damage, enhancing the longevity of the roof.

Energy Efficiency: The insulation provided by spray foam can lead to improved energy efficiency. It helps to keep the building cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, reducing HVAC usage and energy bills.

Durability: Spray foam is a durable material that can withstand various weather conditions, including extreme heat and cold. It can extend the lifespan of the existing roof.

Versatility: Spray foam can be applied to a variety of roofing substrates, making it a versatile option for commercial properties with different roofing types.

Reduced Maintenance: Once installed, spray foam roofing systems typically require minimal maintenance, resulting in cost savings over time.

Disadvantages of SPF Roof Coatings:


Upfront Cost: The initial cost of installing a Spray Foam Roof Coating System can be relatively high compared to some other roofing options. However, the long-term savings in energy costs and maintenance can offset this expense.

Installation Complexity: Proper installation of spray foam requires skilled professionals. Incorrect installation can lead to issues down the line, so it's essential to choose an experienced contractor.

Limited Reparability: Unlike some roofing materials that can be patched or repaired easily, damaged sections of a spray foam roof may require more extensive repairs or replacement.

Weight: Spray foam adds some weight to the roof structure. While it's generally lightweight, it's essential to ensure that the building's structure can support this additional load.

UV Exposure: Without an appropriate protective coating, spray foam can be susceptible to UV damage over time. Therefore, it's crucial to apply a UV-resistant roof coating.

Odor and Fumes: During installation, there can be a noticeable odor and fumes from the chemicals used in spray foam. Proper ventilation and safety precautions are necessary.
