For Building Owners

Applying SPF to the roof deck either during construction, or when replacing a roof provides a complete air seal with many benefits. When applied in homes on the underside of a roof deck to create an unvented attic, a building owner can reduce the size of the heating and cooling system up to 50 percent, and double or triple the life of the equipment. Air leakage between living space and attic is essentially eliminated, and dust and other allergens are reduced, creating healthier indoor air quality.

High-rise apartment buildings insulated with spray applied polyurethane foam insulation are can achieve high insulation value, combined with air barrier systems, enables HVAC systems to be reduced in size saving hundreds of thousands of dollars in energy costs both during and after construction.
