Star Roofing Inc. Roofing Foreman Juan Barranco demonstrates how to install and seal a roofing vent at the Arizona Construction Career Day. Star Roofing also had a roofing crane on display at the event. This is a great event which supports the growing need for students, teachers and career counselors to understand better the many career opportunities that are available in the Construction Industry.
ACCD was initiated by the Arizona Construction Career Days (AZCCD) event team in 2007. This came about due to the event becoming a larger event and needed more than just a committee; thus became the Association for Construction Career Development.
What is spray foam and why use it.
Sprayed Polyurethane Foam is fluid applied using plural-component spray equipment to fill cracks and crevices. It then expands approximately 30 times its original liquid volume to form a hard, closed cell, monolithic roof surface.
The Polyurethane Foam dries within seconds after applied to the roof’s surface. Its’ expansion results in a weather tight roofing membrane that is fully adhered to the substrate. Because polyurethane is lightweight, it adds little additional weight to the structure.
Polyurethane Foam has a history of more than 35 years as a maintainable roofing medium. Polyurethane Foam adds excellent insulation value to the structure, and utility bills can reflect the difference, up to 30%-70% on energy consumption!
Once the SPF has been applied to the proper thickness and finish specifications, protective layers of elastomeric coating and granules are applied. The reason for the elastomeric coating is to protect the foam from the sun. If the foam is exposed to the sun, it can oxidize and wear away. This protective layer produces a durable, weather resistant surface that can be walked on for normal maintenance.
But don’t take our word for it below is an email from a customer whose roof was done almost a year ago.
Subject: Our new roof
You completed the installation of our new foam roof in late December 2013. Shortly after completion, a contractor friend of mine looked at the roof and commented it was the best looking installation of a foam roof he had seen.
On September 8, 2014, we had a near record rainfall in our area giving the new roof it’s first serious test. It performed flawlessly. I inspected the roof after the storm and it looks just as good as the day it was finished. No runs, no drips, no errors.
After only 8 full months with our new foam roof, we got a notice from APS adjusting our Equalizer payment for electricity. Our payment for the next 12 months has gone down $26.57 per month.
Great job on our new roof. Obviously, I will recommend Star Roofing to anyone needing a new roof.
Thank you and have a great day,
Star Roofing has been installing Phoenix Foam Roofing since 1954 our teams are the best in the foam roofing industry. Call today for a Roofing Estimate:

Star Roofing Inc. specializes in Urethane Spray Foam Roofing. Several homes in Scottsdale AZ have been built with Flat roofs and utilizes Urethane Spray Foam thereby reaping the benefits of energy savings while enjoying the durability.
SPF Roofing Systems provide many benefits to building owners. The two most prominent benefits are waterproofing/leak prevention and insulation value. Many additional benefits also exist such as superior compressive strength, lightweight, self-flashing, durable and long lasting.
Benefits of Spray Foam Roof Systems
- Leak free monolithic seal over your entire roof deck
- Self flashing
- High insulation value / Rapid payback with energy savings
- Strong adhesion and wind uplift resistance
- Weather resistant
- Lightweight and high strength
- UL and FM approved systems
Sprayed Polyurethane Foam is applied as a liquid using plural-component spray equipment to fill cracks and crevices. It then expands approximately 30 times its original liquid volume to form a hard, closed cell monolithic roof surface. The Polyurethane Foam dries within seconds after applied to the roof surface. Its expansion results in a weather tight roofing membrane that is fully adhered to the substrate. Because of polyurethane’s lightweight it adds little additional weight to the structure and is often used in remedial applications. Polyurethane Foam has a history of more than 35 years as a maintainable roofing medium. Polyurethane Foam adds excellent insulation value to the structure and utility bills can reflect the difference.
Protective Coatings for Spray Foam Roofs
Once the SPF has been applied to the proper thickness and finish specifications, a protective layer of elastomeric coating, or gravel is applied. This protective layer produces a durable weather resistant surface and that can be walked on for normal maintenance.
Energy Star – Cool Roofs Program and Benefits
ENERGY STAR qualified roof coating products reduce the amount of air conditioning needed in buildings, and can reduce energy bills by up to 50%. The Cool Roof Program defines certain standards for reflectivity, and maintenance of reflectivity, in roof coating systems. These light colored roof coatings reflect the suns heat and UV rays and often lower the temperature of the roof by up to 100 degrees.
SPF Roofing Installation
Installation of SPF involves different procedures based on the existing roof structure. It is important to be familiar with all state and local building codes to assure the appropriate materials and procedures meet the necessary requirements in your area.
