When you insulate a roof with spray foam, you usually need to cover a wide area while the weather permits. This means that you need spray foam guns that are reliable, give a decent output, and require less maintenance. When you have a poor-quality gun that isn’t designed for long-term performance, you’ll be stuck troubleshooting problems that could have been avoided if you initially invested more in a better product.
Leading manufacturers like Graco and PMC are always improving on the status quo for spray foam roofing guns. Contractors are pleased to see guns contain fewer parts, become easier to handle, and weigh less. Heavy, bulky guns that require a road map to disassemble and reassemble are becoming a thing of the past as top brands listen to what people like you want: less downtime and more simplicity.
At Intech, we stay on top of the best selections out there. Here are our top spray foam guns for roofing jobs:
Graco Spray Foam Guns
Graco is at the forefront of innovative spray foam gun manufacturing. This brand offers some great spray foam guns for roofing contractors that stand up to the test of time.
The Probler P2
Graco’s Probler P2 is lightweight and easy to handle, which makes it excellent for ambitious roofing jobs. It’s also easy to maintain and designed to keep materials out of the piston. Though it weighs just 3 lbs, it has a maximum output of 40 lbs per minute, allowing contractors to finish high-volume applications in a timely manner.
The Fusion SP
This gun is packed with convenient features that work together to reduce user fatigue and increase your spraying time. The Fusion SP uses air purge technology to blast its tip to reduce the amount of buildup. This is a solution to a common problem that often interrupts contractors from completing a roofing job on time. Its ergonomic handle is also designed to comfortably fit your grip so working for extended periods is easier on the body.
Do you like the idea of saving an hour of clean up every day? Then the Fusion CS is probably the gun for you. This gun uses disposable ClearShot liquid chambers that are easy to replace to reduce downtime on the job. It has 10 different spray settings and a variable flow feature that allows you to change spray patterns easily. This gun is especially good for roofing contractors because it can access the small areas between walls and joists.
PMC Spray Foam Guns
PMC guns and machines are top-notch and should make a place in a serious SPF contractor’s rig. Here are three PMC guns that we carry in our sprayfoam equipment store.
PMC just launched their newest gun, the AP-3, which is a fresh re-imagining of its previous model, the AP-2. It is one of the lightest air purge guns in the market, weighing only 2.4 pounds. Its lighter weight combined with its short trigger stroke work together to reduce user fatigue. When it comes to spray foam roofing applications, taking fewer breaks can make the difference between staying on schedule or falling behind.
Also, if any parts get clogged or need maintenance, the AP-3 has fewer parts than other air purge guns. In addition, it uses a replaceable one-piece cartridge instead of a complicated spool valve. This means maintaining and cleaning this gun is easier compared to traditional air purge gun models.
If you want to save money and get an older model that still runs great, PMC’s AP-2 Air Purge Gun is still a good addition to your arsenal. It weighs just 2.6 lbs and many of its parts are interchangeable with the AP-3, including the chamber, coupling block, and check valves.
At Intech, we offer various AP-2 packages to fit different specifications and application needs. Give us a call and we can guide you through different combinations of mixing chambers and pattern control tips.
The Star Gun
PMC also offers the Star Gun, which offers excellent finish and mixing quality. It uses mechanical cleaning, which completely cleans the reacted material inside the mixing chamber after each use. The Star Gun also has a powerful air cylinder that allows rapid valving. You can also adjust the spray pattern without changing the mixing chamber, which saves you even more time!
