Many facility managers have found that rather than replacing their roof entirely, they can use roof spraying and a foam or coating to extend the life of their structurally sound roof. There are spray-applied coatings and foams that can perform better than other standalone roofing systems. Could you be the next facility manager to discover the benefits or roof spraying methods?
Roof Spraying Overview
There are many coatings and foams available in the roofing industry that allow building owners to extend the life of their roof by hiring a roof spraying company to spray-applied a coating or foam on top of their roof. By electing a roof spraying method over a roof replacement or partial repair, building owners can save a great deal of time, money, and receive an arguably better product at the same time.
Roof Spraying Tips
There are some key factors to remember when considering undertaking a roof spraying project or hiring a contractor:
- The roof typically needs to be flat, or low-sloped to be an eligible candidate for a roof spraying project. Some coatings and foams have been chemically modified to allow them to adhere to steeper surfaces, but these are going to cost more and change the money-saving equation drastically.
- Watch out for the weather and your climate. Spray-applied foams and coatings all need time to cure and harden before being exposed to the weather. If you live in a climate where the air is full of moisture and rain comes and goes without warnings, you will need to cover the surface immediately with a tarp. This may not be possible if you own a one million square foot distribution center.
- Always be safe. Many spray-applied roofing materials are hazardous, and you should always take proper care to ensure those installing the roof and those in the area are kept safe.
