Advantage Insulators offers spray foam roofing solutions for commercial and residential flat roofs throughout New Brunswick including Moncton, Saint John, Fredericton and surrounding areas.
The Advantage Insulators Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) Insulation Roofing, when used with specific elastomeric coatings, creates a complete roofing system that insulates, protects, reduces potential of leaks, adds structural support to the building, and cuts the amount of radiated heat into the building.
Our spray foam roofing solution is a rigid, closed-cell plastic created by a combination of two liquid components, which react in seconds and can be walked on in a matter of minutes. The resulting roof system provides superior insulation and creates a lightweight, seamless coating over the substrate. The spray foam adheres to almost every surface (BUR, metal, cap sheet, EPDM, and others), so it is unlikely to tear off your roof when it has reached the end of its life-cycle.
High Performance Roof
Our roofing spray foam solution conforms to the roofing surface with a strong bond that provides a seamless monolithic system and contains no thermal shorts. It provides a greater insulation factor, an unsurpassed air-barrier, increased structural stability, and requires lesstime to install. A spray foam roofing system has an effective lifespan that can exceed 30 years and has the lowest lifecycle cost over other conventional roofing systems.
Heavy Duty Roof
Advantage Insulator’s spray foam roof systems fair better in extreme weather, including hail, high winds, and falling debris. A post-Hurricane Katrina study on spray foam roofing systems was conducted by the National Institute of Science Technology (NIST) in Pascagoula, Mississippi. The study concluded that all spray foam roofs but one minor exception sustained the hurricane without blow-off of the SPFor damage to flashings.
Seamless Monolithic System
From wall-to-wall, spray foam roofing provides a seamless roof install with no mechanical fasteners, providing the building with an unsurpassed air barrier and increased thermal resistance. This type of solution also provides self-flashing around HVAC curbs, vents, and skylights, adding additional protection against moisture and air infiltration.
Roof Life-cycle Cost Per Square Foot
Compared with other conventional roofing systems, our spray foam roofing is as much as 4.5 times more cost effective when comparing total lifecycle costing. It’s simply more energy-efficient, longer lasting, and a better value.

Read here how spray foam roofing withstood more Hurricane damage- it’s fantastic for preventing significant wind damage.
Below are results from the NIST (National Institute for Standards and Technology, USA) reports on the impacts on structures from hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The reports are very favorable toward spray foam roofing. See select quotes, summaries and the complete 270-page report below.
Chapter 3.2 Roofing page 55
3.2.3 Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) Roofing Systems page 69
“A number of spray polyurethane foam (SPF) roofing systems were observed in the Pascagoula, MS area. Some of these roofs were estimated to be about 20 years old. With one minor exception, all were found to have sustained Hurricane Katrina extremely well without blow-off of the SPF or damage to flashings. In the case where damage was observed, the SPF had been applied to a wood fiber insulation that had been mechanically fastened to the metal deck with an inadequate number of fasteners. Failure likely occurred when the insulation board delaminated from the deck. The area of the failure was less than 1 percent of the total roof area.”

Chapter 6 – Key Findings and Observations
“Spray foam roofs were the only type of roofing system described as having performed ‘extremely well’.”
6.2.2 Roofing page 176 -177
“A limited number of spray foam (SPF) roofing systems was observed in the hurricane Katrina damage zone. Such roofing was found, with minor exception, to have sustained the winds extremely well without blow-off of the (SPF) or damage to flashings.”
