Benefits of Foam Roofing

Foam Roofing, Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) Insulation Roofing, when used with an elastomeric coating, gravel, or a fleece-back single ply membrane, it forms a roofing system that increases insulating, protects your building, stops roof leaks, adds structural support to your building, and decreases radiated heat in to your business or residence – ultimately lowering your energy costs.

Spray Foam Roofing was chosen in the US after hurricane Katrina took the roof mostly off the Louisiana Super Dome. Information can be found at www.superdome.com or at


The new spray foam roof on the Superdome is guaranteed by the spray foam manufacturer to resist hurricane force winds. Historically, approximately 75 percent of the U.S. mainland experiences winds of 40 mph or greater, according to data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Organization.
Ken Gayer, business director for Honeywell foam insulation blowing agents, said that closed-cell polyurethane has proven structural advantages under the most extreme weather conditions."From Hurricanes Andrew to Hugo to Frances, commercial and residential buildings sprayed with polyurethane foam have performed exceptionally well in terms of resisting short- and long-term damage from the effects of wind and flood," he said.

GRS spray foam roofing systems are a rigid, closed-cell plastic formed when two liquid components are combined that cause the reaction of “foam roofing”. Application and use is quick with spray foam roofing – a spray foam roof can be walked on in less than 5 minutes. A spray foam roof system provides superior insulation and becomes a lightweight, seamless or monolithic, waterproof blanket over the roofing substrate.

Spray foam roofing (SPF) adheres to most any substrate or surface - Traditional Tar Roofs “BUR”, metal roofing, cap sheets, EPDM singly ply roofs, and a lot more). There is no need to tear off the old roof when it has reached the end of its useful life-cycle. The roofers at GRS simply spray on insulating spray foam and coat the roof with a top coat roof coating available in a variety of colours or with a single ply roof membrane and the new roof is done.

GRS offers a number of warranties to ensure continued satisfaction with your spray foam roof.
