We can apply this type of material to your roof in a way that's efficient, effective, and affordable.
SPF roofing is applied to a commercial roof as a liquid. It then expands into a foam, which results in a solid, durable layer that extends across an existing roof. It's a material that's been around since the 1960s, so it has a long history of use on commercial roofs. A spray foam roofing system is also appealing since it can be used in any climate.
Spray foam roof insulation can be applied to existing roof to give it added protection. In addition to minimizing issues with leaks, SPF roofing can also improve the energy efficiency of your commercial roof, which could add up to some much-appreciated long-term savings. And when properly stalled by the Glick Brothers Roofing team, urethane foam insulation has the potential to last for many years! Polyurethane foam spray roofing systems are also:

After making sure that the existing roof is ready, our spray foam contractors will then put down the first layer of foam. The "foam" is created from the mixture of two liquids – a polyol/resin and an isocyanate. It's applied to the existing substrate. The liquid then expands to form a solid surface without any seams or imperfections.

Because polyurethane spray foam insulation is able to adhere to most roofing surfaces, it can usually be effectively used on any type of roof slope. After the initial SPF layer is in place, it can then be coated with additional layers and coatings. The purpose of doing is to provide added protection from:
After urethane foam insulation has been fully applied along with the additional layers needed to achieve the necessary fire rating, you'll be left with a commercial roof surface that is seamless, resistant to moisture, and highly durable. Polyurethane spray foam insulation can also be applied to the underside of roof sheathing to increase a commercial roof's insulation capabilities.
