spray-foam-guy-full-face-coveredConklin’s SPF System is a great way to provide high-grade insulation on both roofing and interior wall application for top-down protection from the elements. An SPF application effectively controls air filtration, adds building strength, between 1600 – 4200 psi, and reduces cooling and heating costs up to 30%. During the restoration process each problem area is systematically addressed, repaired and resealed; then the entire roof is sealed with a reflective finish coat.

Sprayed polyurethane roofing systems have been engineered to provide a superior energy-efficient, long-lasting roof for any building. Foam roofing offers excellent insulation value, an R rating of approximately 7 per inch, and a smooth, durable, seam-free barrier against the elements when coated with Conklin coating systems. Foam is so lightweight – about eight ounces per square foot – it can be applied over most existing roof systems without exceeding the structural load capacity. Yet it’s amazingly strong, easily withstanding light foot traffic and other weight requirements.

Conklin’s foam roofing systems have met the most stringent requirements for a variety of industry groups, such as Factory Mutual, Underwriters’ Laboratories, and are recognized by the International Conference of Building Officials.


  • Eliminates air infiltration – the number one cause of energy loss.
  • Offers an impressive insulation value of R-7 per inch.
  • Adds structural strength without adding much weight. (3 – 4 oz.)
  • Can be applied to most existing roof surfaces.
  • Withstands hurricane-force winds.
  • Can easily correct damaged substrate and/or poor drainage.
  • Will not absorb water due to foam’s closed-cell insulation properties.
  • Reduces sound transmission.
  • Is fast and easy to repair or recoat.

“Conklin’s spray foam roofing system minimized the messy
tear-off and the high cost of material disposal at the local
landfill. I’m happy with the successful roofing application and
love the idea that I have the best and brightest roof in town.”

The Texas A&M Testimonial:

In 1980, Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas began reroofing their facilities using polyurethane foam. Texas A&M kept careful records on the performance of their new roofing system and found they have reaped reductions in maintenance costs as well as decreased energy expenses. Now with over 7 million square feet of polyurethane foam in place, Texas A&M uses nothing else for new or remedial roofing.

For a number of years, Mr. Gerald Scott, P.E., was in charge of roofing and energy conservation within the Texas A&M Physical Plant Department. After achieving their main goal of preventing roof leaks, Mr. Scott began monitoring the energy savings of the sprayed polyurethane foam roofs (SPF). Mr. Scott monitored the energy savings on 27 different buildings that had received a SPF roof from 1980 to 1984. The results were astounding. TAMU was able to recover the complete cost of the roof application through energy savings in an average of four and one-half years.

Quoted here is Mr. Scott’s conclusion which is shared by today’s Physical Plant Department:
“From the time of their construction, and throughout the life of the roof, built-up roofs were major maintenance and repair items. The experience that the Texas A&M University Physical Plant gained since 1974, when the program began, indicates that no major problem, and very few minor ones, exist in the polyurethane roof systems. As a result of this experience, all new construction includes the foamed polyurethane roof system. To date some 16 new facilities have this roof system totaling nearly one million square feet.”
