Spray polyurethane foam roofing, or SPF, is a liquid-applied material that expands into a foam once applied to your roof, coating your roof with a seamless layer that provides excellent protection against even the most challenging conditions.
Frueh Construction is Dickinson, North Dakota’s premier installer of spray foam roofing systems.

Time-Tested Roofing System
While SPF is not the most recognized roofing system available on the market, the technology has been around for well over 50 years. Since the 1960s, spray foam has been used to insulate industrial, residential, and commercial buildings in a wide variety of environments and climates. Some of those roofs are still in use today!
SPF roofing quickly and effectively increases the insulating value of your roof. The closed cell structure of spray foam gives foam roofing one of the highest R-values (thermal resistance) of any roofing materials on the market! That means rooms like attics or bedrooms, where every square inch counts, can be insulated with minimal space being taken up by insulation.
By some estimates, the energy saved with spray foam roofing over the course of 5 years will pay for the cost of the new roof installation. Spray foam roofing has been shown to reduce cooling and heating costs by up to 50% in some cases.
Because spray foam is an air barrier, it can increase your mechanical systems’ efficiency, allowing for even more energy savings.
Unlike some other roofing systems, spray foam roofing requires very little maintenance besides bi-annual inspections to check for repairs and do a little cleaning. Your SPF roof should include a protective topcoat, which may need to be reapplied periodically to protect against leaks and other damages.
SPF is extremely lightweight, making it a good choice for older buildings or roofs that are already supporting a heavy load. Spray foam can be applied directly over existing roofs, saving you thousands on the cost of roof removal.
The materials that are used in spray polyurethane foam roofing systems are sustainable and eco-friendly:
- Nonexistent Ozone Depleting Potential
- Low Volatile Organic Compounds emissions
- No Chlorofluorocarbons
- Extremely low Global Warming Potential
