Today, we take a look at the growing demand for “green” construction and how spray foam roofing can greatly help curb American energy costs. We then examine the market opportunities that this opens up for commercial roof contractors, and how commercial roofers can benefit from our network’s partnership with the premier spray foam equipment provider Intech Equipment & Supply.
The Need for Spray Foam Roof Insulation Today
According to the U.S. Department of the Interior, American energy usage is expected to increase 40 percent by 2025. That increase in consumption corresponds with a rise in demand for “green” nonresidential construction, as commercial and industrial buildings take up a good portion of the United States’ total energy usage.
The Freedonia Group, a market research firm, projects that demand for U.S. green building materials will increase 11 percent annually and will reach $86.6 billion in 2017. Moreover, the ENERGY STAR® program reports that construction of green buildings has also reached a new high. As EnergyStar.gov relates, “in the United States, the green share of the U.S. nonresidential construction market grew from two percent in 2005 to 44 percent in 2012.”
Spray foam roofing offers one of the most immediate ways to help building owners cut down on energy costs. It can applied on virtually any type of commercial roof system, and with its high insulation value, a spray foam roof system is among the greatest energy-saving and cost-cutting commercial roof systems out there.
Why Spray Foam Roofing?
We covered the extensive benefits of spray foam roofing and took a look at roof spray foam problems in previous blog posts. In reality, spray foam roofing has been a highly trusted commercial roofing solution for around 50 years. Its energy-saving benefits, long life expectancy, and high-performance ability are a handful of many attractive features. A person only needs to take a quick look at the slew of advantages associated with spray foam roofing, particularly a spray polyurethane foam roof, to realize its appeal for commercial roofing applications:
