Roofing Inspection Summary
The customer called us requesting a free commercial roof evaluation of their church roof. Recently, the church had the roof patched and found that it was still leaking. During the evaluation, it was clear that there had been multiple attempts to fix this roof, but none correctly. We decided that a proper solution would be for a new Spray Polyurethane Foam application over the entire church roof.

Additional information about this roofing job:
The old spray polyurethane foam on the church's roof needed scarification. Scarifying is the process of cutting or planning off the surface of the spray polyurethane foam. It exposes the good foam underneath as a base for a new layer of spray polyurethane foam or acrylic coatings. It is common for older roofs with spray polyurethane foam to need scarification if not properly maintained.
The scarifying process allows us to restore the roof to a condition that can withstand long-term sustainability. With proper maintenance, a restored spray polyurethane foam roof can last 30-40 years.We recommend a Commercial Roofing inspection annually for Spray Foam Roofing systems. The cost for regular maintenance is far less than the cost of a full commercial roof replacement.
