SPF has been in use for more than 35 years. As such, it was one of the early insulated roofing systems that promoted the use of insulation and light-reflective roof coatings to help save energy. The use of seamless insulation and white or light-reflective coatings have been in use for longer than most of the cool roof-type roofing systems that we find in today’s market place. Many of the industry’s SPF roof system components have been charter partners in the Energy Star Roofing Program to save energy. Several industry companies are active in the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program, among others. SPF insulation continues to offer some of the highest insulation value and performance per inch than any other type of insulation roofing material.
SPF roof systems are not green.
