Benefits Of Choosing Spray Foam Roofing For Your Commercial Building

If you are planning to re-roof your commercial building, you may have already been presented with multiple material options. One option that may not be as familiar as other more traditional materials is spray foam.

Foam roofing is one of the least expensive roofing materials. Still, the spray foam offers multiple benefits. Here are some of them.

Environmentally Friendly

If your company is environmentally conscious, spray foam may offer a benefit that you find particularly important. It is environmentally friendly. The foam is free of harmful pollutants, such as chlorofluorocarbons. The foam also emits a low amount of volatile organic compounds. 

In addition, the foam does not require the disposable of your current roofing material, saving area landfills from additional debris. Spray foam can be applied over wood, asphalt, concrete, clay and metal roofing.


Spray foam roofing is also energy efficient. The foam, which is applied as a liquid, quickly expands to fill in gaps and spaces that could result in a loss of heat or cooled air.  The foam creates a barrier that blocks the entry and loss of air.

Additionally, the spray foam is a great insulator. It has a high R-value, indicating superior insulating capabilities.


Moisture can damage a building in multiple ways. Water that seeps below the roofing material can cause structural wood planks to rot. Additionally, moisture that invades the walls can incite the growth of mold, which can be expensive to remediate.

Spray foam fills in gaps between seams and flashing through which water can seep. In addition, the foam helps to prevent uneven areas on the roof in which water can pool.


The structure and design of commercial buildings can make it difficult to apply some roofing materials. However, spray foam quickly conforms to irregular shapes and angles. As a result, the spray foam is versatile enough to be used for practically any architectural design.


Other roofing material may require regular replacement. However, spray foam roofing is designed to last indefinitely with proper upkeep.


Fire damage can wreak havoc on a commercial building and all of the expensive equipment that it contains. Insurance may cover the cost of some damages. However, a fire can cause a business downtime that can create dissatisfied customers and harm a company brand. Foam roofing is flame-retardant.
