COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS

COMMERCIAL BUILDING OWNERS - BUILDERS - MANUFACTURES

A leader in the installation of spray foam insulation in the Pennsylvania and surrounding states, Seamless Spray Insulators offers "State of the art" materials and application methods will maximize the energy efficiency of any type of building you are constructing or retrofitting.

 

SPF can be used in most industrial applications such as tanks, coolant pipes, air ducts, and the encapsulation of asbestos.

Construction Advantages of Foam Insulation

Knowledgeable builders prefer foam insulation to fiberglass and other insulation materials because of its ease of application and superior performance.

Potential to Reduce Lumber Costs

Enables contractors to meet R-Value requirements with smaller dimension lumber

  • Reduces Siding Costs
  • Requires Less Time to Apply
  • Requires Less Labor
  • Perfect Fit Every Time
  • Perfect Detailing in Hard-to-Reach Places

Spray foams allow easy detailing around penetrations such as pipes, windows, doors and sheathing fasteners.

  • No Shrinkage
  • No Drying Time
  • Easy Removal
  • No Harmful Emissions
  • No Sagging
  • Reduces HVAC Requirements

Spray foams' excellent insulation keeps heated or cooled air in the building and blocks outside air from coming in, vastly reducing the size and cost of HVAC equipment needed to control temperature at comfortable levels.

New Construction or Remodeling

Spray foam installation is primarily installed in new construction and remodeling, it can also retrofit the attic and subfloor systems in existing buildings.

Weather Resistant

Spray foams used in roofing provide excellent weather resistant insulation, protecting the building from the dangers of humidity and extreme temperature conditions.

Roofing Applications of Spray Foam

Spray Foam Roof Systems have many advantages over traditional roofing methods

:

Weather Resistant

Roofing spray foam provides excellent weather resistant insulation, protecting the building from the dangers of humidity and extreme temperature conditions.

Thermal Insulation

Roofing spray foam has the best insulating properties available for commercial construction today. Sprayed polyurethane foam has an R-value of 7.14 per 1 inch thickness, enabling it to provide more thermal resistance with less material than any other type of roofing insulation.

Waterproofing

Composed of billions of closed cells, roofing spray foam acts as an air barrier, preventing moisture infiltration into the building (the number one cause of building deterioration). Even when the top coat of a foam roofing system is damaged, the underlying foam will keep the roof from leaking. If a penetration does occur all the way through the foam layers, the water infiltration will be isolated only to the area where the membrane has been penetrated. Small penetrations in foam roofing systems can be repaired easily with an elastomeric caulk, reinstating the integrity of the system.

Seamless

Roofing spray foam is sprayed onto the roof as a liquid and forms a single continuous seamless membrane that covers the entire roof. There are no seams or joints, the source of the majority of leaks in traditional roofs.

Flexible

Roofing spray foam can be sprayed onto virtually any surface, including irregularly shaped roofs and protrusions that pose problems with other systems.

Self Flashing

Roofing spray foam's excellent adhesion allows it to be installed with almost no flashings; some roofers call the material "self-flashing" Regardless of age, or building use, it retains its density and compressive strength. SPF curb flashings solve a number of problems, including withstanding structural vibrations when applied to light-gauge metal roof curbs.

Versatility

Roofing spray foam can be successfully applied to virtually every type of membrane roofing system available, including asphalt, coal tar, modified bitumen, and single-ply, in addition to metal panels.

Elimination of "Water-Ponding" When applying the spray foam in re-roofing situations, it is very easy to build up areas of greater thickness while spraying. so that water will drain properly. This eliminates the problem of water-ponding and the additional weight load associated with water accumulation.

Sustainability

Spray Foamed roofs require a minimum of upkeep, creating little waste and have an indefinite lifespan.

Strong Adhesion and Wind Uplift Resistance

Roofing spray foam prevents air leakage so that wind uplift resistance is increased dramatically.

Energy Efficiency

Roofing spray foam produces energy savings of 30% or greater when compared to the alternative roofing systems. With today's rising fuel costs, the cost of the roof can be easily recovered a few years, simply through these energy savings alone!
