To protect your property from rain and weather damage in the best possible way, you want to eliminate any potential leaks or water entry points. Seams or points where materials meet are obvious areas of concern, as these spots are commonly vulnerable to penetration by water. This is especially true if age, the elements or poor installation have allowed gaps or uneven spots to develop.
Naturally, roofing materials that reduce the number of seams or weak points would offer a big advantage in decreasing the chances of water damage. This could be one factor that is contributing to the growing popularity of spray foam roofing and coatings.
Spray foam roofing is a seamless process, literally. Unlike most (if not all) other forms of roofing materials, spray foam doesn’t involve seams. It is applied as one continuous layer and creates a membrane that envelopes the entire roof. This allows it to create the ultimate barrier to keep water and wind from breeching the structure.
Also, since spray foam is applied as a flexible substance, it can conform and adhere to materials of any shapes and forms, making it perfect to reinforce a roof that may have irregular surfaces or weak spots.
Of course, spray foam also offers a number of other benefits as a choice of roofing material, including its great insulating properties and the potential for significant energy savings.
