Austin TX Roofing Contractors Save You Money with Polyurethane Roof Installation

Polyurethane foam roofing saves you money initially, and then continues to provide savings for the life of the roof. Immediately, you avoid the cost of a total replacement of your roof. Additionally, the energy costs on your commercial property are significantly reduced. Over the long haul, you incur no expenditure for leak repair or maintenance. You extend the useful life of your existing roof, avoiding the cost of a replacement roof.

Investigate how you will benefit from polyurethane foam roofing. Call Longhorn Commercial Roofing at 512-759-8567 for the company our customers say “looks you in the eye and tells the truth.”

Only a few steps to your new roof:

  • Your existing roof is cleaned.
  • About 1 to 3 inches of foam is applied.
  • A base coat goes on.
  • Then a top coat is applied to the new surface.

Your largest initial savings come from eliminating the need for tear-off and disposal of most old roofs. Polyurethane foam roofing is applied directly to your existing roof, which has been specially prepared. Because the old roof stays on, right away you save removal costs.

Installation is quicker because there is no tear off, which keeps labor costs down. Business owners appreciate the lack of disruption and noise compared with roof removal. Plus, foam requires no metal flashing to be installed where the roof meets the building (we sometimes do some specialized caulking, if needed).

Our polyurethane foam roofing comes with up to 15 year warranties. If your goal is to delay roof replacement, polyurethane foam roofing now can help you budget for roof replacement later. If you’re interested in a “green” upgrade, your polyurethane roof will be in place long enough to pay you back in utility savings.


Polyurethane foam roofing has 85% reflectivity, which means it bounces away so much of the sun’s energy that it can pay for itself in four to seven years with your lowered cooling costs. It forms a seamless, top-grade insulation that keeps out the summer heat and negates heat loss in winter. This is year-round energy efficiency. We use ENERGY STAR rated products, giving you the potential of claiming tax benefits when you retro-fit an existing roof.

Seamless Barrier to Leaks

A standard single-ply roof has hundreds of feet of seams and hundreds of fasteners. Both can leak. Polyurethane foam roofing is virtually leak-proof, because there are no fasteners and no breaks in the coating. There is no place for water to get through. Plus, the sprayed coating dries to what’s called “closed cell form”. If, for instance, a tree fell in a storm and breached the coating, any leakage would remain localized.

Other Significant Features

Any damages to your polyurethane foam roofing can be easily repaired and restored to its seamless look and leak-resistant form. Foam is lightweight, so it generally does not exceed the load capacity of your structure. In fact, it adds tensile strength to your structure. It’s a great look for home or business. It is even possible to add granules to the top coat, giving your roof a textured look similar to asphalt tile.
