Can birds damage spray foam roofs?

Many clients tell us they’ve heard that birds can damage a spray foam roof. Is it true, they ask, and how does it happen? Yes, bird damage on spray foam roofs does occur, but it’s rare, easily repaired, and can be prevented. It’s even more rare (almost non-existent) with our Cozifoam roofs. Here’s the scoop.

Spray foam-protected rocket takes flight, from Spray Foam Magazine That’s why NASA uses it in space to insulate against -425°F temperatures! (Read about it in Spray Foam Magazine) 2.

Repairing and Refurbishing Old Spray Foam Roofing

In addition to installing new spray foam roofs, Cozifoam also repairs and refurbishes existing spray foam roofing. While spray foam roofing is the most cost-effective in the long term, the most durable, and the most environmentally responsible form of roofing for flat roof industrial and commercial buildings, older installations may have some issues that Cozifoam can repair. Older spray foam roofs typically have two problems: they’ve been neglected over time, and almost universally, they’ve had an inferior-quality coating applied over top. Cozifoam applies a unique geomembrane—essentially a high-quality, durable and strengthening fabric—on top of the existing foam before adding our own…

Refurbishing Torch-On Roofing

Torch-on roofing is a popular form of roofing material. It’s definitely the cheapest, but it comes with some serious limitations—especially in cold climates—that can cause it to break down prematurely. Few people are aware, for example, that torch-on roofing materials are not truly waterproof or made for flat roofs! Most manufacturers warranty information states plainly that the manufacturer’s warranty is void if installed on a roof with less that a 1% slope! Why? Torch-on roofing is allergic to water, and will break down in standing water. That means that any ponding water conditions, even in small areas around drains, voids your warranty.…

How to Hire an Excellent Spray Foam Roofer

A new roof is a major investment, so you owe it to yourself to exercise due diligence in hiring a roofing company. Sadly, many good spray foam insulators try to become spray foam roofers without the necessary training or experience. The results are almost always disastrous. Inadequate surface preparation, shoddy installation, inadequate equipment, and inappropriate materials have resulted in some spectacular roof system failures. Partly to blame are unscrupulous suppliers who push their insulation clients to take on roofing contracts just so they can make a sizeable material sale. Avoid being ripped off Don’t be the victim of a sub-par operation. Here’s…

Why SPR is the Best Roofing System for Metal Buildings

Spray foam roofing is ideal for metal buildings because it resolves two major problems almost all metal buildings experience: ice-damming and condensation. This is particularly true with metal frame buildings that have fiberglass roll insulation draped over the beams and purlins with the exterior metal roofing and cladding then screwed through the insulation to the frame. Where the insulation is compressed against the framing members under the cladding, there is virtually no insulating value. Heat from the building melts the snow on these areas, and when the water runs down the roof to the edge (or another area where there’s less…
