    Pros

    • Foam roofs are easy to install. For a business that is looking to get their doors open as quickly as possible, having a roof installed quickly can be a tremendous asset. Each day that a business is closed while its roof is being done is a day where that business is losing money.
    • Foam roofs are energy efficient.
    • Foam roofs are very easy to maintain. In many cases power washing a foam roof a few times a year is all that it takes to keep it in great shape.
    • Foam roofs have no seams for water to get through making them completely waterproof. They protect a building more effectively than any other type of roofing.
    • Foam roofs are more durable than asphalt shingled roofs. This is important because a commercial building will likely have more people up on the roof performing maintenance, a more durable roof is beneficial in this situation.

    Cons

    • Foam roofs need to be inspected by a professional contractor every two years to ensure that they are structurally sound. Extreme heat has been known to break down the chemical compounds in a foam roof causing it to degrade faster than it should.
    • Foam roofs can crack and suffer damage causing them to leak. If a foam roof is damaged a professional will have to be called out to seal it.
    •  Foam roofs are more costly than other roofing options, but their long life and easy maintenance help to make up for this initial cost.
