Foam Turns From Liquid to Solid Monolithic Protective Roof Shell

Sprayed Polyurethane Foam is applied as a liquid using plural-component spray equipment to fill cracks and crevices. It then expands approximately 30 times its original liquid volume to form a hard, closed cell monolithic surface.

The foam dries within seconds after applied to the deck surface. Its expansion results in a weather tight membrane that is fully adhered to the substrate. Because its lightweight it adds little additional weight to the structure and is often used in remedial applications.

This foam roofing contractor has a history of more than 20 years in Arizona. Our foam adds excellent insulation value to the structure and your utility bills can reflect the difference here in the metro Phoenix area.

Once the foam has been applied by us as a foam roofing contractor to the proper thickness and finish specifications, a protective layer of coating or gravel is applied. This protective layer produces a durable weather resistant surface and that can be walked on for normal maintenance. Our foam adheres to just about everything so it can be installed over concrete, steel, and most existing metal roof systems which saves on the expense of tear-off and our Arizona landfills. Spray apply a tapered roof system with our foam which eliminates the need for costly tapered insulation systems. The cants and vertical wall terminations are also spray applied making them an integral part of the our system and minimizing additional component costs.

Foam Durability

When most people hear of a "foam roof”, they automatically think of the type of soft foam similar to that used for seat cushions and are concerned that they won't be able to walk on it without causing problems or damaging the foam. Triangle Roofing Company’s foam systems are very durable and can handle foot and construction traffic as well as other roofs. They are still susceptible to damage from dropped tools just as any other roof but the damage is more easily seen and can most often be repaired with some simple polyurethane caulking. Triangle Roofing Company offers a free annual inspection with every five- twenty year systems.

Density & R-Value

Density of foam is important when it comes to strength and Thermal Resistance. Obviously, higher density foam means increased strength and higher R-value. Most metro Phoenix area foam roofs have densities ranging from about 2.5 pounds per cubic foot to 3 pounds per cubic foot. Three pound density foam has a compressive strength of about 50 psi and an R-value of 7.14 installed and 6.86 aged (these numbers may vary slightly depending on the manufacturers mixture based on the EPA). Here's an example of how well a good a foam roof insulates. A school district in Scottsdale, AZ had recently installed some new, one-room relocatable classroom buildings. During the late spring and early fall, these classrooms were using their air conditioners an average of 50 minutes every hour. The school district installed our foam roofs on some of these classrooms in order to see if it would provide an energy savings. The roofs consisted of three pound density foam, 1.5 inches thick with our roof coating system. The air conditioner usage was cut down to fifteen minutes every hour. That's a fifty-eight percent savings on energy costs.

Does this mean our foam roof will pay for itself? Absolutely! ASU studies indicate that foam roofs in Arizona and the Phoenix metro area climate with our commercial foam roofing system can pay for itself in approximately four and a half years.


If the coating on your foam roof is properly maintained by a foam roofing contractor, then your foam can last a very very long time in Arizona sometimes over 30 years. Every five, ten or fifteen years, depending on the type and amount of coating applied, the roof will need to be cleaned, primed, and recoated. If this is done, then could last 50 years or longer in the Phoenix metro area.


As with all our other systems, cost depends on several factors. Some of which include building accessibility, complexity of project, foam thickness and roof coating system, plus the location. Once the foam has been applied to the proper thickness and finish specifications, a protective layer of elastomeric coating or gravel is applied. This protective layer produces a durable weather resistant surface and that can be walked on for normal maintenance.

Energy Star – Cool Roofs Program “Roof Coating Phoenix” and Benefits of using Triangle Roofing Company

ENERGY STAR qualified roof coating products reduce the amount of air conditioning needed in buildings, and can reduce energy bills by up to 50%. The Cool Roof Program defines certain standards for reflectivity, and maintenance of reflectivity, in roof coating systems.
