McDonough Spray Foam Roofing

Professional Spray Polyurethane Foam Application in Covington, Athens, & Surrounding Areas

Spray polyurethane foam is applied as a liquid, which then expands many times its original volume, creating a high-density roof covering that’s resistant to both impact and water damage. With a 6.2 R-value and 85% reflectivity, SPF coatings deflect so much of the sun’s heat that property owners recoup their application costs in just four to seven years through reduced cooling expenses. Unlike other heat-reflective materials, however, SPF is also insulation, reducing heat-loss in wintry weather and lowering overall heating costs. This Conklin roofing product can be applied over existing roofs of good condition.

Advantages of Using SPF

Improved Waterproofing

Since SPF is installed as a liquid, when it expands, it seeps into and fills cracks, gaps, and crevices in the materials below it. It’s naturally waterproof (not just resistant) — so much so that the U.S. Coast Guard has accepted it as a flotation material, as well as a roofing system. 

FEMA (the Federal Emergency Management Agency) even recommends spray polyurethane foam as a building material to reduce flood damage.

Adds Structural Strength Without Significant Weight

According to SPF tests performed by The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Research Center, spray foam insulated wall panels increased the racking strength of both wood and metal stud walls from 70% to 200%. When installed to the exterior and roofs of buildings, SPF reduces building sway in high winds, lessening the likelihood of corners being caught and torn from the substrate. Essentially, spray polyurethane foam “glues” the entire structure together, significantly increasing rigidity and tensile strength, while still allowing some flexibility for building movement without cracking.

Can Withstand Hurricane-Force Winds

SPF bonds so tightly to a substrate that it’s nearly impossible to pull off in high winds. It’s also a natural shock-absorber. Even in gale-force winds, heavy objects like tree branches, building materials, and concrete tiles typically cause only superficial damage to the spray foam substrates, which resists peel off and provides continued water protection to the interior of the building. After Hurricane Katrina, which destroyed a vast area of the Mississippi Gulf Coast, it was noted that many buildings sustained little or no damage in the SPF-insulated sections, while areas that lacked SPF were often loosened and ripped away due to pressurization and high winds.

Easily Correct Damaged Substrate and Poor Drainage.

Like poured concrete, SPF can “cover a multitude of sins.” Small cracks and gaps in substrates, pipe/vent openings, and flashing are filled and covered during the foam expansion process. Some roofs can even have drainage issues corrected or improved by a knowledgeable and experienced technician applying SPF. Likewise, future repairs to damaged SPF can be efficiently completed with a compatible sealant or by replacing the damaged portion and installing more foam.

Roof protection and maintenance are some of the most effective ways to avoid common and expensive commercial property costs.

What Is the Spray Polyurethane Foam System?

The spray polyurethane foam system is a premium thermoplastic membrane system that offers outstanding reflectivity and is resistant to a broad range of chemicals, helping to extend the life of the roof. During installation, membrane rolls are overlapped and welded together to form an exceptionally durable, waterproof, energy-efficient shield that will deliver unsurpassed protection for years to come. 

Some of the advantages include:

  • Increases energy efficiency and lowers utility expense with a cool, white, reflective surface and an insulation value of R-6.5 per inch of thickness
  • Stops leaks
  • Stops lateral water movement
  • Simplifies repairs — most damage can be fixed with a caulk gun and coating
  • Extends the life of your roof
  • Reduce cooling expense up to 30%: The average roof absorbs a large portion of the sun’s ultraviolet rays as heat. Conklin’s white SPF Roofing System reflects 85% of the sun’s heat, cooling your building and saving you as much as 30% in air conditioning costs.
  • Eliminate future roof tear offs: Years from now, when it’s time to renew the superior protection of your Conklin Roof System, a simple recoat will do the job. In most cases, multiple recoats can be done for the entire life of your roof, saving you the expense of a new roof. With your recoat, our material warranty may also be extended.
  • Low maintenance: Conklin’s SPF Roofing System provides leak-free protection and exceptional energy savings for years. It maintains maximum reflectivity and energy savings, because its surface is resistant to dirt and discoloration. Annual cleaning is all that’s needed to keep it white.
  • Recoup your costs: A great return on investment is another important reason to choose Conklin’s SPF System. Many satisfied customers discover that a Conklin Roof System lowers air conditioning costs and can pay for itself during the warranty period. Federal tax rebates, tax credits, and deductions may also offset your investment. In many cases, the government considers recoating a procedure that can be deducted as a maintenance cost.
