Spray Polyurethane Foam Roofing System
Are you wondering what SPF (spray polyurethane foam) roof is. Let me try and explain it. It is a close cell roofing and insulation material, that both waterproofs and insulated your roof. The SPF system has the highest R-value of any insulation material which can help your roof be leak free, and at the same time add exceptional R-value that lowers your energy costs!
People ask "Why Choose SPF Roofing"?
Our SPF Conklin coating system is best applied over the following surfaces: Concrete, Metal, Wood, and Composite Decking. SPF Roofing system is a seamless material and makes sure that your roof stays leak-free. It is one of the best ways to water proof your commercial roof.
Believe it or not water does not travel laterally in the SPF roofs. If you happen to get a hole in your SPF roofing system, water movement will be restricted to just the hole. In all likely a repair with Conklin's Kwik Kaulk will do the trick in fixing your roof.
Since the SPF roofing system is reflective and light weight, normally an old roof does not need to be removed in order to apply a new one. If you have an underlying area that the insulation is found saturated with water, you may have to have to have minimal tear-off. This way it will make sure that you have a good water tight roof.
What is the Life Expectancy of an SPF Roof?
That is a good question. A SPF roofing system last indefinitely. Normally you would have your roof power washed to keep it clean of debris, and at that same time have it inspected. This way we can keep a check to make sure that your roof is not experiencing any problem areas. A top coat is applied every 15-20 years. A SPF roofing system shows little signs of deterioration or change in physical properties even after 30 years.
Thanks for staying with me during this post, I know it is a long one, but I have packed a lot of information in it. So let's keep going.
One of the biggest advantages of the SPF roofing system is that it is renewable, contrary to other roofing systems.

I promise we are getting close to the end. But I have found such good information on this specific roofing system, I just want to tell you all of it.
The Roof Itself
At J&M Roofing Sy we take pride in installing our SPF roofing. The biggest thing about putting your new roof down is to make sure that your roof is cleaned. This is such an important step, if you leave any type of debris on your roof, your spray foam will not adhere properly to your roof.
Priming is an important component of the process since it helps seal porous substrates, inhibit corrosion of metal substrates, which darken the substrates and increase solar heat gain, and remove moisture. Also, in the rare cases where metal edges, stacks and vents are in poor condition, it may be necessary to replace them. The SPF foam is sprayed as a liquid onto the roof surface but in three seconds it rises to 1.5 inches. The foam hardens within a minute and can then be walked on. After hardening, the foam forms a monolithic cellular membrane covering the entire roofing system. This seamless SPF membrane can easily and effectively fill voids, holes and low areas to enhance drainage and increase stability. What’s more, sealing around difficult roof features such as skylight windows or circular exhaust vents can be accomplished quite easily.
Then we will spray an acrylic coating. the final step is to add reflection, and this will protect the underlying system.
How Does an SPF Roof Keep Energy Cost Down?
A properly installed SPF roofing system acts like a layer of insulation. Did you know that most heat enters the industrial and commercial building through the roofing system? Another fun fact: did you know that your roof acts like a giant heat sponge? Soaking up all the heat from the sun. That heat is then slowly transferred into the entire building. The heat transfer process can take time, and it continues long after the sun has set. Your building may only be exposed to the sun on average of 12 hours per day, but the heat continues to move through out the entire building long after the sun goes down. Conklin's white SPF roofing systems reflects 85% of the sun's heat, cooling your building and saving you as much at 30% in air conditioning costs.
Another fun fact: SPF has over one million closed cells per square inch, making it a fantastic insulation agent. This roof systems insulation value amounts to a value of R-6.5 per inch. That is impressive amount of insulation, lets take this one step further. After the SPF roofing systems has been installed JM Roofing Systems puts a highly reflective top coat over the entire surface. This top coat is able to reflect up to 85% of the sun's ray's.
Avoid Costly Roof Replacement
It's always good to have a maintenance schedule set up for your roof. You want to make sure that you don't have any debris laying up on your roof that can do any type of damage. You can also have your roof power washed so you can really see if everything is good. In 15-20 years you should have another top coat put down. This just furthers helping with keeping your roof sound. SPF roofs shows little sign of deterioration or change in physical properties even after 30 years.
