Have you thought about foam roofing for your Phoenix, Arizona home? As Arizonians, we look for anyway to cool down during the long summer months. Whether it’s spending hours in the pool or sitting in front of a fan all day, we will do whatever we can. Fortunately, there are ways of cooling our homes down and one of those is foam roofing.
What is Foam Roofing?
Foam roofing is the process of spraying a commonly flat roof with a Polyurethane Foam that expands about 20x to cover the entire roof. The foam thickens and solidifies to create a waterproof barrier.
What is the Foam Roofing installation process like?
- Roof prep includes clearing debris and gravel.
- From a machine inside the truck, the hose will be connected to include the spray gun at the end.
- The roofer will bring the spray gun alongside the house and onto the roof to begin the spray foam process.
- For the first layer, the Polyurethane foam will be sprayed.
- The second layer will be a base coat of paint.
- Following the second layer will be the white topcoat.
