Foam Roofing In Texas

What is Foam Roofing?

SPF or sprayed polyurethane foam is one of the most popular, durable, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly roofing systems in Texas. Years of research back this relatively new technology and show the many benefits of foam roofing. Urethane foam roofing in Texas offers you a long-term solution for your home. The original SPF roofing has been installed on residential homes in Texas since the 1970s.

Although the urethane products we use are similar, our materials are more modern and have been refined and significantly improved over the years. Although the majority of foam roofing contractors offer SPF, you can be assured all of Ark Roofer’s materials are of the highest possible quality. 

What Is Foam Roofing in Texas Made of?

When the liquid components of a polyol resin and isocyanate are combined, the result is urethane foam roofing. The material is then sprayed onto the surface of your roof. The reaction of the liquid mixture creates a durable insulation layer on your roof. The minimum application layer is one inch. We can use thicker applications for extra insulation depending on your needs.

Why Should You Choose Foam Roofing in Texas?

The combination of benefits and peace of mind you receive with a residential foam roof in Texas are excellent for the unique weather in the area. Foam roofs have become popular all over the state. At Ark Roofing, we know the advantages a foam roof will bring.

The application process for a residential foam roof in Texas uses a blowing agent free of CFCs or chlorofluorocarbons. This means you’re having a green roofing solution installed. You can take pride in your new roof and the benefits you receive because everything is environmentally friendly.

One of the benefits of polyurethane is insulation. During a Texas summer, you need your roof to keep heat away from your home. During the winter, you are kept warm by the same insulation. The insulation of Texas foam roofs is so superior, your energy consumption decreases and you are again helping the planet by going green.

A residential foam roof in Texas keeps water away due to the virtual impenetrability of the closed-cell structure.

As expert Texas foam roofing contractors, you can trust we will deliver quality workmanship.

What Steps are Important for Spray Foam Roof Repair in Texas?

The first step for foam roof repair in Texas is using a machine to heat isocyanate and polyol. These are essential to create polyurethane. Once heated, we use a spray gun for the application of foam. Initially, we spray the foam in a liquid form to ensure a seamless coat for your entire roof resulting in maximum stability. It is critical your roof surface is free of impurities including chemicals and oil.

Once we have finished spraying the polyurethane for your foam roof repair, we add another layer to ensure solar protection. The second coating of foam on your roof adds extra strength.

Pros and Cons of Urethane Foam Roofing in Texas

Pros

• Easy installation saves you both time and money. Texas residential foam roofing is fast, and our application process will not interrupt your daily routine.

• The application of spray polyurethane foam is accomplished by spraying the substance directly onto your roof so it can expand into foam. This enables the foam to conform regardless of the type and shape of your roof. Once your roof is clean, we can spray foam directly over wood, metal, concrete and shingles.

• Foam roofing in Texas offers moisture, air and thermal barriers. You receive better insulation for your home and energy efficiency. Your roof will keep heat out during the summer while keeping it in throughout the winter. This decreases your energy costs. The foam is protected by the silicone top coating which decreases heat absorption and resists UV light.

• Once our Texas foam roofing contractors have installed your roof, minimum repair and preventative maintenance are required. If your roof is maintained correctly, it can last for more than 50 years. Your foam roof should be inspected at least twice per year, in the spring and fall.

If you experience any event potentially resulting in damage to your roof, we recommend an additional inspection. If foam roof repair is necessary for silicone recoating, no tear-off is necessary for your existing materials. Your new coat is applied directly over your current roofing system.

• The main cause of leaks requiring foam roof repair in Texas are penetrations and seams. This vulnerability is eliminated with SPF. Since urethane foam roofing is applied in liquid form, we can fill cracks, seams and gaps in your existing substrate and roof. The polyurethane application allows us to level your roof to help prevent ponding water.

• Little to no waste is created by your SPF roof during its lifetime. In most instances, minimal stripping of your original roof is necessary. Your SPF roofing system is installed on top. This eliminates both waste and expensive roof tear-offs.

Cons

• Not all Texas foam roofing contractors are equal. The spray foam application must be done correctly from the start. Whichever foam roofing contractor you choose must thoroughly understand the chemicals involved and apply the foam with precision.

• The installation window for Texas residential foam roofing is limited. Specific weather conditions are necessary before SPF can be sprayed. If there is visible dampness, surface moisture, frost or ice, SPF must not be sprayed. If the contractor proceeds anyway, the foam roof will not be applied correctly and there will be significant issues.

It is important to keep the coating in good shape so that the sun does not bake the foam under the coating. It is also important to keep your foam roof clean of dirt and vegetation.

ARK Roofers did a fantastic job on our roof! I worked with Jeff Whitt, who coordinated the work crew, billing and handled all the logistics expertly. The crew started early in the morning, stayed late until the job was completed, and delivered a solid spectacular product, on time and on budget. The roof looks terrific!!! I’d like to recommend them to anyone, as we are well pleased. They did the job in two days, despite the heat which was oppressive. If you are in need of any roofing, and looking to work with someone trustworthy, I urge you to please contact Jeff with ARK Roofer! This company did quite a few of the homes here in Grand Mesa…

Ark won the contract to repair hail damage to my home because of their presentation and recommendations. The owner worked with the insurance company on several occasions and garnered more claim coverage than originally offered. I considered his presence with the claims adjuster to be extremely valuable. Like many full-service contractors Ark used sub-contractors. My one complaint was lack of supervision of the major sub-contractor workers while the job was in progress. The final product was outstanding, however.

We had ARK Roofing completely replace our roof, gutters, add an upgraded layer of insulation, and upgrade our attic vents. It was a big undertaking and ARK did a superb job. Luke explained all our options, took time to go over the details, answered all our questions and even gave color recommendations for shingles when I had a difficult time choosing. He and his crew were professional and easy to work with. We also painted our exterior stucco and Hardieplank through his business. Our house looks great: updated and new looking. I highly recommend!
