What are the signs of foam roof damage you should watch for?
Here are just a few of the signs that your foam roof may need to be repaired before our high summer temps and monsoon rains arrive.
As we all know, the Valley gets a lot of sun in the summer. All this heat and UV radiation eventually causes cracks to appear in the foam’s top layer. Since this is the protective layer, it’s important that you treat these cracks as the “canary in the coal mine” for your roof: while your roof is probably not seriously damaged, this is the first sign that you need to get our team on the phone for a free roof checkup here in Phoenix.
If left unchecked, foam cracks can lead to further deterioration.
If cracks are not there, blisters probably will be. These bubbles are the result of sunlight, debris, or improper initial installation.
Cracks, blisters, and other damage will result in water being able to enter. Leaks lead to other undesirable problems, such as mold and mildew, which can be hazardous to your health. Other elements that can seep in are light (such as in the attic), wind, and dust.
Higher utility bills
Likewise, spray foam roofing that has lost its effectiveness will lead to a higher utility bill. Keep track of your monthly bills so you can watch for unusual hikes in usage and cost.
When does your foam roof need to be retreated?
Left off the list of natural enemies above is one that you can’t do much about: time. Foam roofs should be resealed every 10-15 years to ensure that the protective top layer—as well as the rest of the foam—is protected and ready to stand up to the harsh elements here in Phoenix. If you’re getting close to the point of your roof needing to be resealed, you should step up your monitoring of your roof and consider having KY-KO Roofing out, at least annually, for a free roof checkup.
