Foam Roofing Advantages

Foam Roofs are Lightweight, Durable, and Seamless

The Dura-Foam Roof System has a rigid and durable surface that you can walk on. A thick (typically 1.5" thick) closed-cell polyurethane waterproofing barrier seals the roof against leaks. Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) is the only roofing material that has no seams. Foam roofing bonds around roof penetrations such as pipes, vents and edges forming an impenetrable wedge, leaving these penetrations "high and dry." Additionally, the roof surface is built up in ponding areas to eliminate heavy standing water and improve drainage. These features result in superior leak protection.

"Green" Renewable Roofing

A "Green" roof system should not only save energy, but also never wear out. Dura-Foam Roofs are truly renewable because as long as the upper coating layer is maintained, the roof will last the life of the building. Recoating at five years is part of our Maintenance Plan. Quality results are achieved, and we are still dealing with the original roof purchaser. After this initial recoating.... Recoating once every twenty years keeps Dura-Foam roofs functioning like new. Following the recommended Dura-Foam System Maintenance Schedule yields long-term savings of over 75% by never having to re-roof again!

Unique Insulating and Waterproofing Qualities

Sprayed foam is by far the Best Insulator you can buy. Sprayed foam stands alone as the only insulating material that does not soak up water. Foam boards soak up water. In fact, the packaging on foam boards warns not to get the boards wet.

Several other key features set Dura-Foam Roofs apart as green roofing systems. First, high quality insulation and Cool Roofing significantly reduce heating and cooling energy loads. Second, you will divert landfill waste by installing a roof that lasts. Additional waste is diverted in the construction process as your existing roof materials are recycled and reused. Third, Dura-Foam only uses environmentally friendly materials. Dura-Foam Roofing materials are chemically inert, which explains why they last so long.

Long Term Service and Savings

A roof warranty is only as good as the company that stands behind it. New Dura-Foam roofs include a 10-year Leakproof Guarantee which is extendable to 15 years upon recoat. After the warranty expires, Dura-Foam continues to provide free roof inspections every five years to ensure that your foam roof system will continue to last. In the last 35 years, no other Bay Area foam roofing company has provided such a generous long-term service.
