SPF Foam Roofing
Spray Polyurethane Foam Roofing in Northern Virginia and Maryland
Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) is an eco-friendly and affordable roofing option for commercial and industrial facilities. While spray foam roofing is not as well known and only accounts for 10% of commercial roofs, the technology has been around since the early 1960s. An SPF roofing system can be used in any climate, and can last over 50 years when properly maintained.

Spray Foam Installation
Before the installation can start, the existing roof needs to be prepped. Rather than stripping the existing roof, the contractor will most likely prepare the substrate by getting rid of all dirt, dust, and contaminants. This can be done with sweeping, brushing or air pressure.
The first layer put down by the contractor is the polyurethane foam. This foam is created by combining two liquids, a polyol and an isocyanate, as it’s sprayed onto the current roof.
When the liquid is sprayed onto the the existing roof, the foam then expands about 20x its size to form a solid and seamless surface. Thickness can vary between1 and 2 inches when it’s all said and done.
Benefits of SPF Roofs
The list of benefits of installing a spray polyurethane foam (SPF) roofing system are quite long:
- Energy Efficiency – The energy efficiency and roof insulation properties of an SPF roof can have significant energy savings throughout the lifespan of the building its installed on. Studies show that the average return on investment period for a new foam roof can be attained in only 5 years.
- Durability – It is one of the most durable materials as the foam can expand and contract with the temperatures, therefore decreasing the likelihood of cracking.
- Seamless & Waterproof – Since the SPF mixture is applied as a liquid, it can fill seams, cracks, and any gaps that currently exist on the roof. All vulnerable leak areas are removed since there are no joints or seams.
Cost of Spray Polyurethane Foam Roofs
On average, a commercial roof will usually cost around $4.00 to $7.00 per square foot to install a SPF system. This is including materials and labor. That said, pricing can vary based on size of roof, thickness of the foam that’s desired, roof access, slope, climate, warranty, and more.
