Unlock Summer Savings: The Benefits of Spray Foam and Coatings Roof Systems

With summer heat on the rise, maintaining a cool and comfortable indoor environment becomes a priority for property owners. One of the most effective ways to enhance building energy efficiency and manage cooling costs is through the installation of a spray foam and coatings roof system. Below we will explore how spray foam and coatings roof systems, such as the Rugged Roofing System, provide a superior solution for your roofing needs during the hot months. 

What is Spray Foam Roofing? 

Spray foam roofing is a lightweight insulation solution that offers a high degree of thermal resistance and air-sealing properties. Applied as a liquid, it expands into a foam that creates a continuous insulation layer across your roof. This layer effectively minimizes thermal bridges and seals air leaks, which are critical for maintaining interior comfort and reducing energy usage. 

The Power of Reflective Coatings: 

To further enhance the performance of spray foam roofing, it is typically topped with a reflective coating. These coatings play an essential role in protecting the underlying foam from ultraviolet (UV) light and weather, while also contributing to energy efficiency by reflecting heat away from the building. At Rugged Coatings, we offer several types of coatings, including: 

Silicone Coatings: Ideal for roofs exposed to extreme weather conditions, silicone coatings are highly flexible and resistant to ponding water, making them a durable choice for many roof types. 

Acrylic Coatings: These coatings are cost-effective and environmentally friendly options that provide excellent protection against UV radiation and help to keep the roof surface cool. 

Benefits of Spray Foam and Coatings Roofing Systems During Summer: 

Enhanced Energy Efficiency: The high R-value of spray foam solutions like Accufoam helps keep indoor temperatures stable by reducing heat transfer. This insulation effectiveness, combined with the reflective properties of coatings like those from Rugged Coatings, means less reliance on air conditioning, resulting in lower energy bills. 

Improved Indoor Comfort: By maintaining a more consistent indoor temperature, spray foam and coatings systems make the indoor environment more comfortable during hot weather, enhancing satisfaction for occupants. 

Cost Savings: Lower energy consumption directly translates into cost savings. Additionally, the seamless nature of spray foam reduces maintenance costs over time since there are fewer opportunities for leaks and thermal bridging. 

Longevity and Protection: Both spray foam and the protective coatings are designed to last with proper maintenance, offering long-term durability against weather and temperature fluctuations. This means fewer roof replacements and repairs, providing more value from your roofing investment. 

Sustainability: Spray foam roofing systems are known for their green qualities. By reducing energy consumption and using materials that often have no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) after installation, such as Accufoam’s spray foam, building owners can contribute to a healthier environment. 


As temperatures climb, so does the opportunity to optimize your building’s performance and operating costs with a spray foam and coatings roof system. By choosing solutions like Accufoam and our specialized coatings at Rugged Coatings, you leverage both the thermal insulation benefits of spray foam and the protective, reflective advantages of quality coatings. This combination not only contributes to reduced energy usage and costs, but also improves the longevity and sustainability of your roofing system.
