Foam Roofing In Texas

What is Foam Roofing?

SPF or sprayed polyurethane foam is one of the most popular, durable, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly roofing systems in Texas. Years of research back this relatively new technology and show the many benefits of foam roofing. Urethane foam roofing in Texas offers you a long-term solution for your home. The original SPF roofing has been installed on residential homes in Texas since the 1970s.


Although the urethane products we use are similar, our materials are more modern and have been refined and significantly improved over the years. Although the majority of foam roofing contractors offer SPF, you can be assured all of Alpha 1 Roofer’s materials are of the highest possible quality. 


What Is Foam Roofing in Texas Made of?

When the liquid components of a polyol resin and isocyanate are combined, the result is urethane foam roofing. The material is then sprayed onto the surface of your roof. The reaction of the liquid mixture creates a durable insulation layer on your roof. The minimum application layer is one inch. We can use thicker applications for extra insulation depending on your needs.


Why Should You Choose Foam Roofing in Texas?

The combination of benefits and peace of mind you receive with a residential foam roof in Texas are excellent for the unique weather in the area. Foam roofs have become popular all over the state. At Alpha 1 Roofing, we know the advantages a foam roof will bring.


The application process for a residential foam roof in Texas uses a blowing agent free of CFCs or chlorofluorocarbons. This means you’re having a green roofing solution installed. You can take pride in your new roof and the benefits you receive because everything is environmentally friendly.


One of the benefits of polyurethane is insulation. During a Texas summer, you need your roof to keep heat away from your home. During the winter, you are kept warm by the same insulation. The insulation of Texas foam roofs is so superior, your energy consumption decreases and you are again helping the planet by going green.


A residential foam roof in Texas keeps water away due to the virtual impenetrability of the closed-cell structure. Since your foam roof helps ensure appropriate drainage, it will help prevent water from collecting even when it is raining. As expert Texas foam roofing contractors, you can trust we will deliver quality workmanship.


At Alpha 1 Roofing, we want your roof to be durable whether we are performing foam roof repair in Texas or installing an entirely new roof. A spray foam roof is resilient, provides you with durability and protects your home for the long run.

What Steps are Important for Spray Foam Roof Repair in Texas?

The first step for foam roof repair in Texas is using a machine to heat isocyanate and polyol. These are essential to create polyurethane. Once heated, we use a spray gun for the application of foam. Initially, we spray the foam in a liquid form to ensure a seamless coat for your entire roof resulting in maximum stability. It is critical your roof surface is free of impurities including chemicals and oil.


Once we have finished spraying the polyurethane for your foam roof repair, we add another layer to ensure solar protection. The second coating of foam on your roof adds extra strength.


Pros and Cons of Urethane Foam Roofing in Texas


Pros

• Easy installation saves you both time and money. Texas residential foam roofing is fast, and our application process will not interrupt your daily routine.


• The application of spray polyurethane foam is accomplished by spraying the substance directly onto your roof so it can expand into foam. This enables the foam to conform regardless of the type and shape of your roof. Once your roof is clean, we can spray foam directly over wood, metal, concrete and shingles.


• Foam roofing in Texas offers moisture, air and thermal barriers. You receive better insulation for your home and energy efficiency. Your roof will keep heat out during the summer while keeping it in throughout the winter. This decreases your energy costs. The foam is protected by the silicone top coating which decreases heat absorption and resists UV light.


• Once our Texas foam roofing contractors have installed your roof, minimum repair and preventative maintenance are required. If your roof is maintained correctly, it can last for more than 50 years. Your foam roof should be inspected at least twice per year, in the spring and fall.

If you experience any event potentially resulting in damage to your roof, we recommend an additional inspection. If foam roof repair is necessary for silicone recoating, no tear-off is necessary for your existing materials. Your new coat is applied directly over your current roofing system.


• The main cause of leaks requiring foam roof repair in Texas are penetrations and seams. This vulnerability is eliminated with SPF. Since urethane foam roofing is applied in liquid form, we can fill cracks, seams and gaps in your existing substrate and roof. The polyurethane application allows us to level your roof to help prevent ponding water.


• Little to no waste is created by your SPF roof during its lifetime. In most instances, minimal stripping of your original roof is necessary. Your SPF roofing system is installed on top. This eliminates both waste and expensive roof tear-offs.


Cons

• Not all Texas foam roofing contractors are equal. The spray foam application must be done correctly from the start. Whichever foam roofing contractor you choose must thoroughly understand the chemicals involved and apply the foam with precision.


• The installation window for Texas residential foam roofing is limited. Specific weather conditions are necessary before SPF can be sprayed. If there is visible dampness, surface moisture, frost or ice, SPF must not be sprayed. If the contractor proceeds anyway, the foam roof will not be applied correctly and there will be significant issues.

Frequent Questions We Hear Often

Spray foam roofs have several benefits. Their reflective nature helps reduce the urban island effect. In addition, there is never anything to tear off so there is no waste when replacing your roof.

Foam roofing can solve roof leaks that are actually being caused from your stucco parapet walls. Stucco is a porous, absorbent material and if there are voids in it, you will think your roof is leaking when it is actually the walls. You can lower your energy bill by adding insulation and a reflective coating.

Foam roofing will give you added insulation to your home increasing your homes R value. Foam roofing is an excellent choice for hard-to-reach areas or a roof with a lot of equipment on it.

Sprayed polyurethane foam is a two-part chemical that is sprayed through a heated hose. When the two parts are combined in the heated gun, they react and create a foam that almost instantly hardens on the roof.

 

If properly maintained, it can last forever. The most important part of a foam roof is maintenance. It is important to keep the coating in good shape so that the sun does not bake the foam under the coating. It is also important to keep your foam roof clean of dirt and vegetation. Dirt and vegetation will allow weeds, plants and even trees grow on your roof! With vegetation comes bugs, with bugs comes animals such as birds who like to eat the bugs. If there is one thing we can recommend more than any other system, it’s maintenance.

Every manufacturer has a slightly different R value but generally speaking you can expect to get 6-7 R-Value per inch of foam installed.

Hire a local, trusted roofing contractor in Texas who is licensed, bonded, and insured.

Keep in mind that roofing houses is different in different climates. In Texas, we have a unique climate that requires a different installation than most of the country.

They do not require a lot of maintenance but they do require some maintenance if you would like them to last for decades versus years.

Andrew from Alpha 1 was very professional. He worked with our insurance and our solar panel company to get everything organized and complete. He was diligent and explained everything to us down to the last detail. He even went out of his way to make sure that the job was done correctly. Finally, he followed up with us to make sure we were satisfied. The best thing is they got everything done in one day.

The day after the April hailstorm, our neighborhood was inundated with roofers wanting to inspect my roof. I scheduled an inspection with one of them, but they never showed and never followed up. Luckily, I met Eric from Alpha1 the following week, and from the moment we started working together, he was prompt, professional, and friendly. He made himself available via phone, text, email, and in person. This was my first time dealing with hail damage, and Eric walked me through the entire process, including how to deal with my insurance and mortgage companies (claims, inspections, checks, endorsements–everything). He set expectations about when the work would be done, followed up with reminders, and came by multiple times to check the work in progress. The crew who did the work was great; they put tarps down everywhere before tearing off the old roof and cleaned up after they were done. They were really thorough and left no trace behind. I honestly thought replacing my roof was going to be a giant hassle and that I would be fighting everyone involved to get it done. Instead, Eric made it a breeze, and it was completely stress-free. It’s not easy to trust someone who knocks on your door trying to sell something, but Eric proved himself to be trustworthy and helpful. I’ve already recommended Alpha1 to my neighbors and would recommend it especially to first timers who have never dealt with this kind of thing before. You’ll be in good hands with them.

Greg called me right after the Hail Storm and was the first to call. He came out the next day or two and inspected the roof, even inviting me up to show me the details. Afterward, we retired to the living room and he discussed how the process would work, even explaining to me the process of contacting the Insurance Company to make sure everything was covered. Greg was the first roofer to contact me, so, the old adage “The early bird gets the worm, really paid off” Greg’s crew showed up and fixed the roof in a very timely manner. Afterward, Greg had me accompany him on to the roof for “inspection” and while I am no roofer, I could tell that the job was done professionally. The next day, a couple of members of the crew showed up and finished cleaning up, even getting rid of a couple of limbs that had been blown off my trees in the storm. I have been very complimentary with anyone who asks me (and some who don’t, lol) about Alpha. I do hope to not need them again, but, in West Texas, you never know. The next time I won’t have to wait to be called, I have their number.

We had Alpha-1 redo our backyard fence. Tommy was always friendly, quick to respond to questions, and was very flexible in working with our schedule. Their work was very high-quality, and he gave us a great price for the project. Once they started, they had the old fence completely removed (around 200 linear feet) and the new fence up in 2 days . Great communication, great workmanship, very professional. 5 Stars.
