Spray Foam Roofs in Alberta are Sustainable
Spray polyurethane foam roofing systems have been proven to last 30 years or more with proper maintenance and care. Sustainable SPF roofs not only save money every month by lowering utility bills, they significantly reduce the need for future roof replacement.
Many well known large companies and institutions have documented significant energy savings from SPF roofing systems. After studying millions of square feet of roofing, Texas A&M University concluded that their energy savings alone paid for the cost of SPF retrofits within just 3-4 years.
Spray polyurethane foam helps to keep energy costs low because it:
- is applied above the roof deck;
- reduces or eliminates thermal bridging;
- has a very high aged R-value; and
- is typically coated with light-colored, reflective coatings.
