Myths About Foam Roofing

With so many roofing choices out there, it is important that you know all about the different types of materials that can be used. One of the top quality roofing materials that can be used are foam roofing. There are many misconceptions out there about foam roofing and how it works. Foam used to be used in the 1960’s inside of refrigerators, but once people realized the way it worked and how protecting it was, they decided that it could work on roofs too. Over the years and because of its appeared “newness”, these foam roofs have developed a few myths that often need to be cleared up. They are mentioned below.

The Myths

Walking On It – When you get your roof done with spray foam, people often think there is no way that you can walk on it again. That, however, is not the case. You can walk on spray foam roofs because they are very strong. But just like with many other roofs, if something sharp happens to fall on or push through this material, it can damage and puncture a hole in the roof.

Don’t Last – A spray foam roof will actually last on a roof for around 50 years. That is a long time and actually stands up next to many of its competition very well. It is a great choice to put on your commercial roof.
