SPF Over Metal
SPF Offers Long-Term Weather Proofing For Metal Roofs
Metal roofs have grown in popularity for residential properties and some are starting to show their age. Do you have a home, garage, vacation home, or storage shed with an aging metal roof that needs attention? Gateway Environmental Roofing Solutions offers an SPF over metal system to restore and solve problems encountered with aging, rusting metal roofs.
Flexible Seamless Roof Coatings
To combat your aging metal roof issues and restore your metal roof to a beautiful, even tone, Gateway uses SPF coatings that remain flexible with changes in temperature. Our high-performance Seamless Polyurethane Foam (SPF) system protects your roof from weather, extreme hot and cold, and has no joints or fasteners to ever leak. And, additional long-term roof protection is gained by applying a UV-resistant top layer of silicone, acrylic, or urethane.
Movement Causes Roof Damage
One of the biggest problems with metal roofs is that over time, heat cycling from the weather causes expansion, contraction, and excessive movement of the roof. This can lead to problems that require attention to keep your roof from leaking. Instead of the expense and hassle of replacing your roof or trying to patch the leaks and cover the rust spots, restoration with our SPF coatings will give you decades of reliability and a rust-free, leak-free metal roof.
Insulate Your Metal Roof
As mentioned, roof contraction, expansion, and movement stresses seams, fatigues the fasteners, and causes seals and flashing to fail. By insulating your metal roof from the top with SPF, expansion and contraction are reduced. The panels are strengthened by the full adhesion of the rigid, higher-density, spray foam insulation. All fasteners and flashings are sealed for good with the seamless SPF insulation material. And our SPF elastomeric topcoat can reduce the temperature of your roof by 60°.
Reduce Maintenance Costs
Another advantage of our SPF roofing insulation system is that it can be easily recoated with low cost and no wasted materials. This reduces the expense of maintaining your metal roof.
- The urethane foam fully bonds and adheres to the metal roof, offering excellent resistance to wind damage, temperature fluctuations, and water damage.
- There is no need to use the thousands of penetrating fasteners other re-cover systems require.
- If rust has started on your roof, the SPF system will seal the metal from the conditions that cause rust.
- SPF controls expansion and contraction movement that tears apart the metal panels.
- Our SPF system offers superior insulating properties to reduce heating and cooling costs.
Lower Heating & Cooling Costs
In addition to weatherproofing your metal roof, our SPF system adds insulation value to your home. We often find the amount of insulation originally used in homes tends to settle and lose its efficiency. This can cause your house to be warmer or cooler than it should be and expensive to heat and cool. By applying the SPF system to your metal roof, we can help you reduce heating and cooling costs.
