Restoring Your Roof
Why replace your roof when you can restore it? Whether you have a gravel built-up, EPDM, metal, modified bitumen, rubber, or single ply roof system, we can offer a unique solution for Restoration. Our Spray Applied Systems are the longest lasting, most cost-effective options for Flat/Low Slope Roof Renewal or Restoration.
The Restoration Process
An existing roof must first pass our detailed inspection and qualify as a candidate for restoration. If it passes, the roof is thoroughly cleaned and primed prior to the application of the spray foam or coating system. These products are seamless, self flashing, and add an insulative or highly reflective, leak-free, waterproof layer to the roof.
Silicone coating is more than “paint:” it has unique elastomeric properties–it does not absorb water, reflects sunlight, and stays intact for it’s entire lifespan. Spray applied roof systems can be applied to any flat roof type. The system conforms to even irregular shapes, forming a seamless barrier around rooftop equipment curbs, skylight flashings, drainage portals, etc. Best of all, they offer 10, 15, and 20-year renewable warranties. When our roofs are properly maintained, they can last well beyond the warranty!
Our competitive advantage is providing customers a Restoration System that performs long term, while offering energy savings. Thus, we are able to give conventional roof systems additional life at a much lower cost than replacement.
Roof inspections, infrared scanning, and core samples determine if the roof is a candidate for Restoration. Long-term leaking can lead to saturated roof components which must be removed and replaced. Saturation also leads to rust and/or deterioration of the structural decking. However, most of the time there are only sections of the roof that are leaking. Infrared scans can easily pinpoint these sections and instead of a full roof tear-off, Spray-Tec crews can remove the saturated layers, build them back up, and then spray over them. Without the need to tear-off the entire existing roof, we can offer the building owner a significant savings of labor and materials.

Benefits of a Spray Applied Roof for Roof Restoration
Spray Applied Roofs are Long-Lasting
The normal wear of a quality Roof Coating has a warranted lifespan of 10-20 years. Properly maintained systems can last anywhere from 25-30 years! The Roof Coating can be applied (or reapplied) over any aged roof system, making this system completely renewable.
Spray Applied Roofs are Affordable
Although the initial cost of the Spray Applied Roof can be higher than other roofing systems, it is guaranteed to pay for itself with the energy savings it produces. The renewable properties it offers (that eliminate roof replacement every 10-15 years) are additional factors to consider when calculating cost/value.
Spray Applied Roofs have Little Disruption to Building Owner
A Spray Applied Roof System can be applied in a relatively short period of time with minor disruption to building operations. There is often little to no tear-off required and the applicator’s equipment setup is minimal, but efficient.
Spray Applied Roofs are Seamless
There are no joints or seams to allow water and air to pass through the roof system into the building structure. It is a completely monolithic application.
Spray Applied Roofs Eliminate Flashing Leaks
Because spray applied products conform to the substrate when installed, these seamless systems are ideal for flashing parapet walls, equipment, skylights, and cooling towers. Many roof leaks are caused by faulty flashing… Spray Applied Roofs solve this problem.
Spray Applied Roofs Eliminate Ponding Water
Ponding water may be eliminated by adding an increased thickness of roof insulation (Spray Foam) in low areas–building up these areas and sloping the roof so that it drains properly. It also helps reduce additional weight load caused by water accumulation.
Spray Applied Roofs are Lightweight
One inch of Spray Polyurethane Foam roofing weighs approximately 60 pounds per 100 square feet. This is considerably less when compared to a conventional, built-up roof system. This makes a Spray Foam System ideal for re-roofing, as it is possible to apply over an existing built-up roof without removing it or adding too much weight.
Spray Applied Roofs are Rigid
Although Spray Applied Roofs are lightweight, they are also very strong and will not pack down or sag. With the elastomeric top coat, this roof is built to sustain harsh weather conditions and age with ease.
Spray Foam Roofs have the Highest “R” Value
With an “R” value of 6.2 – 6.5, these roof systems provide more thermal resistance with less material than any other roof insulation. In most cases, a Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) Roof will pay for itself with 5-8 years in energy savings.
Spray Applied Roofs Extend the Life of the Building
By insulating the roof deck (and applying an elastomeric topcoat), damage due to thermal expansion and contraction is eliminated. When the foam and coating is applied, it bonds to the structure. It remains flexible, moving with the structure underneath and helping enhance the structure’s strength.
Spray Applied Roofs are Easy to Maintain
Minor repairs or modifications to a Spray Foam Roof system can be made by qualified Roof Maintenance Technicians at minimal cost. Proper annual maintenance on these Systems can extend their life 5-10 years!
Spray Applied Roofs have Great Versatility
Spray Applied Roofs can be used on both new construction and to replace old roofs. Because of their unique properties, Spray Foam and Coating can be applied to flat, pitched, saw-toothed, or domed roofs, as well as those with unusual slopes or configurations. Spray foam is also an ideal application for insulating tanks, freezers, piping, ductwork, and various other projects.
