In this how-to video series, General Coatings Manufacturing provides visual guides and step-by-step instructions for applying spray foam to a variety of roof drains, penetrations, decks, systems, slopes and terminations. In their fourth collection of videos, General Coatings presents three examples for how to apply spray foam to roof systems.
The roof systems included in this video series are:
Residential flat roof recover
Commercial flat roof recover
While each video lasts around thirty seconds, they remain high-quality and easily accessible learning tools that you can access on the job or in the office. These videos can serve as small reminders to ensure you complete your spray foam job right the first time.
In the spray foam roof system videos, General Coatings clarifies the number of needed layers of spray foam for each roof system as well as how many passes, or layers, of spray foam you need to do to complete an even spray foam job. They also inform you of preparation materials, like primer or finishing products, like elastomeric coating and granules.
Spray foam is an excellent and cost-effective option for commercial and residential flat roof recover as well as cold storage systems. Spray foam roofing is exceptionally durable and incredibly simple, offering roofs that are easy to install, maintain and repair.
Spray foam roofing has many appealing qualities, like a reflective top-coat that creates savings on cooling costs during the summer, and keeps heat trapped inside during the winter. Spray foam is also seamless and completely waterproof due to its ability to fully adhere to a roof. The adhesion properties also protect the existing roof substrate which extends the life cycle of a roof.
These notable characteristics draw many business and residential owners towards using spray foam roofing instead of installing a new roof. With these videos, General Coatings Manufacturing wants to help you ensure your workers understand how to professionally install spray foam to a variety of roof systems, so your company can continue to provide quality workmanship at every job.
