You might have heard that foam roofing is the “new” trend for homeowners. However, foam roofing has been around since the 1950s and has only improved since then. Stapleton Roofing, your trusted local roofers, is here to clarify some of these myths.

Foam Roofing Myths

Foam Roofing Isn’t Durable

You’d think that a lightweight material like foam wouldn’t be strong enough for a roof. However, in our 30 years of roofing, we have seen that foam holds well even after many years. It also minimizes the need for constant maintenance and doesn’t require the rigid, expensive supports of other roofing materials.

Birds Will Destroy Your Foam

Unless your roof becomes exposed with several holes, birds won’t even bother it, especially if the roof has been properly installed by professionals. Be sure to ask for deterrents like our Quik-Shield® Roof coating.

The Foam Is Like That of a Mattress

People usually think this, and, as a result, they often forgo installing it. However, while our material is applied as a liquid, it is incredibly strong and durable. Contractors from trusted roofing companies have walked on top of this during installation. All you need is a pair of shoes that don’t penetrate the material, and your roofers can walk over it without a problem.

There’s a Risk of Absorbing Water

Rather than acting like a sponge, our foam works better as a replacement for flashing. The material is closed-cell polyurethane foam, which is one of the best insulators in the business. Once installed, it covers up all joints and seams so you don’t need to worry about leaking whatsoever.

It’s Expensive

You might be surprised to find out that foam roofing costs about the same as asphalt. With a seamless, waterproofing quality and durable material, homeowners like you end up with a better long-term roofing material.
