Similar to its renown use in walls and attic spaces, Polyurethane Spray Foam Insulation makes a great roofing system and is the most cost and energy efficient system you can install in your home or commercial building. Recent research indicates that poor roof insulation is responsible for upwards of 25% of structural heat loss.
Roofs insulated with Polyurethane Spray Foam can drastically reduce heating and cooling bills (as much as 20% year over year) meaning its installation can realistically be amortized in as little as five years. Offering truly seasonal control, Spray Foam roofs guarantees a warmer property in the winter with less heating fuel consumed and a more comfortable and cooler property in the summer months meaning saved hydro costs on air conditioning.
Extended Roof Lifespan
While seldom considered at installation, the cost and disruption or roof replacement in the future can be quite troubling. Spray Foam roof insulation restores and extends the life of your roof and ensures greater roof stability. Did you know that a properly installed Spray Foam Insulation roof combined with a Polyurea topcoat can last over 50 years with only minor periodic maintenance of the topcoat.
Improved Roof Strength
A Polyurethane Spray Foam Roofing System from GMW Restoration Services provides for a stronger more stable roof due to the high strength to low weight ratios. The product adds only 2 kilograms for every square meter of foam applied at a 40 – 50 millimeter depth.
A roof treated with Polyurethane Foam offers much improved acoustic insulation than does conventional fiberglass or other forms of insulation. In fact at just 75mm thick the sound suppression and filtering is equivalent to double glazing.
