ABOUT FOAM ROOFING
Polyurethane Foam Roofing is a waterproof and insulating covering which can be applied to flat roofs in new and existing buildings. Provided the surfaces are properly prepared, foam roofing adheres to the roof surface, and also to the edges of the roof. This provides a seamless and fully wateproof roofing.
An important advantage of foam roofing over single ply or built up roofing is that if water penetrates the roofing it does not travel horizonatally. For example, if a hole is punched through the membrane of a foam roof, the water will penetrate only at that point - it will not spread sideways within the roof. Most such holes can be simply repaired by caulking.
Acrylic or cementitious coatings can be applied to foam roofing, to reduce heat gain, and to provide improved wear resistance.
