Build for Endurance

Improve Weather and Storm Resistance

Severe weather events can wreak serious damage to buildings. Independent post-hurricane surveys of roof systems by NIST1 and RICOWI2 found that SPF roofs perform extremely well. Researchers noted SPF’s high performance in moisture prevention, keeping the roofs intact and providing protection from hail and debris.  SPF roofing systems tenaciously bond to a wide range of substrates, which greatly enhances its wind uplift resistance protecting buildings and contents during strong weather events. SPF roofing systems resist leaking from wind driven debris and hail due to its closed cell properties and any damaged areas can be quickly
