4 major types of SPF roof coatings - R&A Contracting St. Louis

Last month we exposed the five of the worst assumptions and misunderstandings about SPF insulation. This post is part of a series on five dynamic truths about SPF insulation and its benefits for business and homeowners.

5 truths about SPF insulation – #3: SPF roofing is seamless.

One of the best advantages of SPF roofing is its seamless installation. (polish dating usa) SPF insulation is typically formed from a liquid-based dual compound from isocyanate and polyol fiber. When the two bases are mixed during application, the chemical reaction initiates an expansion process up to thirty times the thickness of the liquid density.

As the SPF insulation expands, it adheres to any and all roofing substrates, including wood, metal, and stone. This creates a seamless, monolithic membrane over your roofing surface. The seamless construct removes any need for flashing, fasteners, seam joints, or caulking. (Foam Roofing) Business owners immediately benefit from SPF roofing due this cost-saving installation process. No more replacing expensive flashing due to wear-and-tear. No more replacing fasteners and panels lost in high winds or damaged by storm debris.

SPF roofing is an exceptional solution for older building with leaky roofs. As the SPF covering is sprayed into place, it fills, seals, and eliminates any water or weather-prone openings. It also strengthens both the roof and the building structure through its natural bonding process. This comprehensive bond helps reduce weather factors such as wind lift and debris impact during severe weather.

Our R&A Contracting team is celebrating another great year of helping St. Louis businesses save their roofs and wallets from energy loss. SPF roofing solutions have a long track record of eliminating roof leaks, some up to forty years or longer with the recommended maintenance.

I’d be an idiot if I did not take this opportunity to communicate to you how much we appreciate the way in which you conduct business and take care of our facility. In my experience you, and your team, are at the top of the list of all the roofing companies I’ve dealt with over the years. Thank you!

Eric and crew were really nice to have around. They were courteous, careful and caused little if any disruption. Their work looks good too! To be honest… a good experience with a product that I initially had misgivings about. I’m a convert because of Bubba, Sam and Eric. Thank you.

“I want to thank the crew at R&A for a job well done on our very leaky roof at the shop. It is certainly nice to have the drips and rivers gone from the shop when it is raining. I also wanted you to know how much we appreciated that the guys were able to stay out of our way and allowed us to do business as usual without any problems or interruptions. The roof looks great and the clean-up after the job made it so we couldn’t even tell you’d been here. Thanks for doing what you do so well!”

Jay Moore, President of Safe Way Tire and Auto Center

“My wife and I were on vacation when water pipes burst in our house. We got a hold of Craig and the R&A crew was able to start evacuating the water immediately. The best part was that they were able to start work before we even returned home. It was a very fast turnaround considering the extensive amount of water damage.”

Will from Dardenne Prairie, MO

“Craig and Mike came out in a timely fashion when we needed the work done. They did a reliable and quality job.”

Jerry from SLR Properties

“Craig helped us out tremendously with the insurance process. Timely and very professional.”

Lindell from Greater Missouri Builders (GMB)

“We purchased a house and there was some damage to the roof. Very impressed with the thoroughness of Mike’s inspection. Very comfortable with their explanation of what needed to be fixed. Most impressive was the way they protected our landscaping. Really liked the way they treated me as a valued customer, even though it was only a small project.”

Ross from Troy, MO

“I use R&A Contracting when my commercial roofs receive storm damage. They work on our behalf through every step of the insurance claim process. They perform all of the work and complete the insurance process, making our roofs better than they were before the storm.”

Director of Facilities for a large Property Management Company

“The team at R & A Contracting responded immediately when notified of our water disaster. They removed water-damaged materials and property quickly and restored our home even before the final settlement from our insurance company. They minimized how long our family had to live in a hotel and got us back to normal as fast as possible.”
