Are you looking for a sustainable roofing system for commercial and industrial applications that doesn’t leak, reduces life cycle costs, and contributes to overall building energy savings? Our spray polyurethane foam (SPF) roofs are guaranteed to be leak free for 10 years.
We produce spray polyurethane foam roofs that surpass the longevity of our competitions roofing systems. We follow strict guidelines of 2 inch minimum roofing systems for better longevity. Proper roofing is no accident, it requires everything to be done perfectly from the planning stage, roof preparation, a flat foam application at the proper thickness, and the choice of the correct coating for the job which is sprayed at the proper thickness. When corners are cut is when failure happens. A spray polyurethane foam roof by Dakota Spray Foam Insulators will likely be the last roof you ever need.
With construction expenses increasing and greater awareness of the long-term affects of energy use, building owners are looking for cost-effective alternatives to conventional roofs. A spray polyurethane foam roof is the alternative; a system that provides owners with roofing solutions that support energy conservation, eliminates leaks and builds confidence.
LIFE-CYCLE COST REDUCTION
With everyone trying to reduce expenses, coupled with the rising cost of building materials, it is essential to use products that reduce life cycle costs. Reducing maintenance is an important consideration in lowering the life cycle cost of a roof. Traditional roof systems require substantial maintenance activities that include conduction moisture test, repairing flashings, seams and patching holes and splits.
ELIMINATING SEAMS, JOINTS AND MECHANICAL FASTENERS
SPF locks every portion of the roof into place, creating a monolithic membrane that eliminates the need for mechanical fasteners, the number one cause of roof leaks. SPF can also be applied to vertical surfaces and is self-flashing.
BUILDING PROPER DRAINAGE
SPF is spray applied to the roof’s surface making it possible to vary the thickness of the foam and ensure proper drainage. Proper drainage prevents ponding water and helps protect your roof from leaks and potential roof failure.
SPF will minimize your energy consumption by controlling the weather extremes of heat loss and heat gain through the roof system. In most cases a SPF roof will pay for itself in energy savings alone in less than 5 years. The savings start day one.
Wind uplift is the primary cause of wind damage. Over time a traditional roof will be affected by the partial vacuum created by the wind blowing over the edge. This vacuum pushes up on the bottom side of the roof assembly and loosens fasteners, reduces the strength of the adhesion, and makes the roof vulnerable to future gusts of wind. Independent laboratories have performed tests showing the polyurethane foam enhances wind uplift resistance. Polyurethane foam roofs can also be repaired from wind damage much more quickly than a traditional roof.
Elastomeric protective coatings are widely used over SPF roofs and as a “Cool Roof” coating. They are ENERGY STAR compliant and most have earned the Cool Roof Ratings Council CRRC rating due to their high reflectivity of harmful UV rays.
