Are Armstrong Foam Roofs Strong Enough To Walk On?

One of the most common questions we are asked is whether foam spray roofing is strong enough to walk on. Armstrong Roofing has been installing foam roofing systems in the San Francisco Bay Area since the early 1980s, and have always assured our clients that they can walk on their SPF roof without fear of damaging it. In fact, the commercial spray foam roofs that we install are durable enough to withstand regular maintenance of HVAC units, compressors, skylights, and whatever other systems may be installed on them. The same answer applies to residential SPF roofing systems since they are both formed using solid closed-cell sprayed polyurethane foam that is protected with special UV layers and white ceramic granules. The Spray Polyurethane Foam Alliance (SPFA) and National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) state that SPF roofs can sustain up to 50 pounds per square inch (PSI).

Walking on Your Spray Foam Roof

It’s possible to walk on your SPF roof within minutes after the spraying process but you need to have on the proper footwear. For example, it wouldn’t be a good idea to walk on an SPF roof wearing high-heeled shoes or any type of boots or shoes with coarse treads. It’s much safer to wear anything with a soft sole or your favorite pair of tennis shoes. 

No Need to Worry About Roof Leaks 

Even if you have technicians who cause damage to your foam roof because of installations or repairs to any equipment you might have secured to it, you don’t need to worry about your roof leaking. However, if the damage is not repaired, it can cause problems in the future. That is why we recommend that you inspect your roof before summer and winter. If you do find spots that need repair, it can easily and quickly be done with the help of a professional to ensure your Armstrong Foam Roofing warranty is not voided.
