SPF roofing is seamless… but is it actually waterproof?

Business owners and homeowners alike rely on their roofs to efficiently transfer water to a safe location. The last thing you want is a maze of buckets under a leaky roof with valuable merchandise and operational safety at risk. Leaky roofs make angry owners, which is why many business owners trust Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) roofing to waterproof their roofs.

At this point the skeptics begin to wonder, “How waterproof can a bunch of spray foam actually be? Is SPF roofing really waterproof?”

SPF Roofing, proven waterproofing for commercial roofs

Whether you have a sloped or flat commercial roof, you need a roofing solution capable of blocking out the damaging effect of water and moisture. SPF roofing expands upon contact and creates a closed-cell compound that instantly bonds to any roofing substrate. Because of its expansive nature, SPF roofing also seamlessly fills any crack, crevice, or awkward panel connection. This creates a monolithic covering that’s custom-fit to your exact roofing structure.

Many commercial roofing solutions involve heavy paneling, time-consuming fasteners, and unreliable weather stripping and flashing. Over time all three of these elements fail to hold off the powerful effect of water. It’s in situations like these where expensive upkeep and repair costs could be easily mitigated by installing SPF roofing.

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.”

“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.”
