Mistakes You Can't Afford To Make When Installing Spray Foam Roofing

Construction & Contractors Blog

There are a lot of things to consider when you're getting ready to have spray foam roofing installed. It's important that you take your time in order to avoid any problems. The following are common issues you want to avoid when installing spray foam roofing. 

Inadequate Support Under the Foam Roofing

Spray foam roofing can be an effective way to extend the life of a building and improve its energy efficiency. But, when it is not installed properly, spray foam roofing can become a liability rather than an asset. One common problem with spray foam roofing is inadequate support under the foam roofing.

When installing spray foam roofing, it is important to support the material adequately so that it does not sag or collapse. Spray foam roofing is quite heavy, and if the support underneath it is inadequate, the roof will sag and could collapse or cause other severe damage to the building.

Improper Preparation Causes a Messy Job

If you are installing spray foam roofing, there are a few things that you can do to prepare for the installation. Spray foam roofing is often considered the best roofing material because it is a solid material that will not leak or deteriorate over time. This means that you should have a longer-lasting roof than many other types of roofing. This type of roofing also requires special preparation before you can install it.

Before installing the spray foam roof, make sure that the underlayment is clean and smooth. If the underlayment has any imperfections at all, you need to fill them up with spray foam insulation so they do not interfere with your new roof later on. Once the underlayment has been cleaned and smoothed as much as possible, then you can start to install the new roof.

Miscalculating the Cost of Spray Foam Roofing

Miscalculating the cost of spray foam roofing is one of the most common mistakes made by general contractors and property owners. There are many things to consider when calculating the cost of the roof, including:

  • Thickness of the roofing system
  • Quantity of materials
  • Type of finish
  • Other additional costs and labor

To accurately calculate the cost of a spray foam roofing project, you want to do an exact estimate of the materials and labor that it is going to take to install the new roof.

When you install a commercial spray foam roof, hiring an experienced contractor is crucial to the success of the project. Contact a commercial spray foam roofing service to get the help you need for your project.

And the Buildings Go Up

Have you ever driven past a large building that was still under construction? You may have stopped for a moment and admired the steel trusses and the heavy concrete blocks used to form and support such a large architectural creation. Here's a secret: construction workers do the same. Workers in this industry never cease to be amazed at what they can create from seemingly boring materials. Concrete turns into a school. Steel turns into a doctor's office. It really is incredible. You may not feel quite as amazed as you read about construction on this blog, but if you get at least a fraction of that wondered, amused feeling, we will be satisfied.
