Considering The Cost of Foam Roofing?

If you are interested in replacing your current roofing system for your flat or low-sloped roof, you definitely need to consider a foam roofing system, Spray Polyurethane Foam, or SPF Roofing. It is currently the roofing system that offers you excellent waterproofing and insulation in one application! Unfortunately, many people tend to believe the cost of foam roofing is higher than Built-Up Roofing (BUR). This is a total misconception!

At Armstrong Roofing, we have been installing foam roofing systems in the San Francisco Bay area for over 40 years. During this time, we have proven to our customers that the initial cost of foam roofing is about the same as BUR roofing with underlying insulation. However, this does not take into account the savings foam roofing has to offer you after its installation.

Why Foam Roofing Is More Economical

Energy Efficiency

By installing Armstrong’s Spray Polyurethane Foam Roofing (SPF), you can reduce your heating and cooling system’s energy consumption by up to 40%. Spray Polyurethane Foam is one of the most energy-efficient materials available for flat roofs – it is over 500% more efficient than conventional roofs. This means that the savings in energy costs over a period of 4.5 years can pay for the cost of your SPF roof installation.


Another reason why foam roofing systems are more economical is the fact that the physical properties of SPF do not diminish over time. Kashiwagi found that about 98% of roofs that were over 25 years old did not leak and 93% had less than one percent deterioration! These statistics are even more impressive when we take into consideration that 55% of those roofs were never maintained.

Cost-Effective Installation

Additionally, the majority of foam roofs are installed over existing roofing systems which do not have to be removed. This minimizes installation costs. The time needed to install a new SPF roof is much shorter as well.

Minimal Maintenance

Finally, the maintenance costs of a foam roofing system are minimal. Its strength and proven longevity classify foam roofing as a sustainable low-slope roofing system. It only requires periodic recoating for decades or even a lifetime of service. Your foam roof only has to be recoated every 20 years to keep it performing like new.

Choose the Right Foam Roofing Contractor

Foam roofing is only as good as the individuals who install it. It’s not as simple as laying some plywood and nailing shingles on your roof. It takes specialized training, skill, experience and quality material to properly install foam roofs that will stand the test of time. That’s why you need to choose a foam roofing contractor like Armstrong. We are family-owned and have been serving the San Francisco Bay Area since 1966 – that’s over 50 years of dependability. During our over 40 years of installing foam roofs, we managed to install more residential foam roofing than any other company in America!
