Environmentally Friendly Roofing Material
If earth-friendly practices are important to your business, then we highly encourage you to look into our foam roofing services in Chandler. Along with being durable, cost-effective, and easy to install, foam roofs provide a number of environmental benefits as well. Polyurethane foam roofs provide great insulation, minimizes air leaks, and reduces the amount of roofing material that ends up in landfills.
Because the application of spray foam roofs can fill in any cracks or imperfections on the surface of the roof, it helps reduce climate-controlled air from escaping your Chandler building. The type of roof also provides great insulation, adding to the overall energy efficiency of foam roofs. By ensuring valuable energy isn’t escaping through the roof, you’ll save money while also benefiting the environment.
The light color of spray foam roofs also adds to the energy savings, especially when the hot Arizona summer comes around. The sun is sure to beat down on your roof, but our white foam can reflect many of its rays. This helps to keep your building cooler, resulting in your air conditioner not working as hard, which will also save you money.
The durable nature of polyurethane foam helps to keep waste out of landfills. Because you won’t have to tear the material off every few years and start fresh, you’ll be doing your part to conserve raw materials and reduce waste production. Many non-foam roofs can also be recoated with foam without having to take the existing roof off, keeping more material out of landfills.

What Makes Commercial Spray Foam Roofing Better Than Single-ply Rubber
Many flat buildings in Chandler rely on single-ply rubber roofs, also known as PVC roofs. Although this material can cost around 25% less than a foam roof, in the long run it will end up costing you more in maintenance, replacement, and mental stress. A foam roof is a more reliable, less frustrating alternative that we recommend to all of our Chandler roofing clients.
The Troubles That Come with Single-ply Roofs
Rubber roofs are made of sheets of plastic that cover the top of the building. Due to the nature of how they are installed and the material used, this kind of roof frequently leaks. There are usually multiple pieces of material involved, and it’s easy for water to slide into the cracks between them.
No matter how experienced a roofing company is, it’s hard to get a really solid install for a single-ply rubber roof. Because of the mechanical installation that’s used for this material, it’s unlikely to keep leaks out, especially over time. Rubber also isn’t a very durable material for roofs. It’s not unusual for it to get holes or other damage from birds, animals, or even people who are on the roof.
Because of the high potential for leaks and other damage, we’ve made the decision to no longer perform any rubber roof installations at Landmark Roofing. Instead, we advise all of our customers to use spray foam for their flat roofs. Over our 40 years of experience, we have found that this approach results in higher customer satisfaction and more durable roofs.
Don’t Count on a Rubber Roof Warranty
Unlike durable spray foam roofs, single-ply PVC roofs may start to fail after just two or three years. Although your rubber roof many come with a warranty that sounds good on paper, it’s typical for exceptions and loopholes to render these warranties virtually meaningless. It’s also not unusual for rubber roofing companies to go out of business before they get a chance to make good on your claims. In other words, your cheaper single-ply rubber roof could end up costing you a lot more in the long run than an expertly installed spray foam roof would.
