How Does Polyurethane Spray Foam Work?

Many People aren’t aware but up to 40% of the total external area of a home is the roof. The roof acts as the first line of defense against all natural elements including temperature extremes, gale force winds, snow, ice, rain and even vermin. Despite all this roofs are not as structurally strong compared to that of the foundations and can be vulnerable from as little as 25 years after the property was built and therefor every home owner should have regular yearly inspections to eliminate substantial problems arising in the future and save the huge financial and inconvenient burden of having to get a new roof.

At Fortuna we have discovered a way of solving such problems in the form of polyurethane rigid spray foam roof insulation. This Fortuna foam insulations system, provides the ultimate solution to all your roofing problems. The rigid foam system is uniquely manufactured to the governments approved specification. It is the most effective form of loft insulation available due to its 90% closed cell construction and it is far more efficient than fiberglass. Using the Fortuna rigid foam system means that you will have a warmer, more comfortable home and most importantly save money on your heating bills.

Fortuna spray foam roof insulation is one of the most efficient domestic thermal insulation products available on the market it has around twice the value of glass fibre for the same thickness.

Polyurethane spray foam is applied as a liquid to the inside of your roof, allowing it to seek and seal any gaps and get into any nook and crannies, before rapidly curing to form a continuous layer of rigid foam insulation which also bonds and seals your roof preventing any slippage of slates or tiles. The Fortuna rigid foam insulation is not only one of the most efficient forms of insulation available, saving you money on your heating bills, but it also offers many other benefits include:

  • A 10 year guarantee
  • Eco friendly
  • Thermal efficient- keeps your loft warmer in winter and also cooler in summer, saving of up to 40% of Heating Energy costs.
  • Eliminates external elements- prevents condensation, Stops dust and rain being blown into your loft by closing previous open crevasses.
  • Strengthens the roof
  • Space enhancing- Turns your loft into a cleaner more useable space
  • Help to prevent allergens entering your property
  • Extends the life of your roof yet substantially cheaper than re-felting or retiling.

Eco Friendly

Older Properties can produce an enormous amount of this country’s carbon emissions. Therefore the Government has identified older properties as a major area for improvement in our fight against global warming. Using the Fortuna spray foam insulation means you can not only drastically improve the insulation in your home, thereby cutting your carbon emissions, you can also improve your peace of mind and gain valuable space at the same time.

Thermal Efficient

The Fortuna roof foam insulation can be applied either directly onto the inside of slates/tiles, or alternatively to the inside of a roof membrane. When applied directly to the inside of a roof membrane, spray foam insulation will provide excellent thermal insulation without the need for cutting, fitting and sealing which is found with rigid board insulation. When used on the underside of a domestic roof, spray foam insulation will turn your roof from a cold to a warm-roof, allowing you to transform your loft into a more useable space. As the foam is applied to the roof rather than the floor of your loft, the loft space will be warmer, cleaner and more draught-free, making it a much more pleasant area to be used for any purpose.
