Foam Roofing at Texas A&M University

According to Gerald Scott (former Director of Energy at Texas A&M University), the campus at College Station, Texas began re-roofing their facilities using polyrethane foam like that from Conklin. Why? Because it works!

Polyrethane foam fills in any cracks and smooths over any seams or irregularities on a roof system. The potential for leaks is virtually eliminated, keeping water out and energy in.

Texas A&M University kept careful records on the performance of their roofing systems and found that they have had reductions in maintenance costs as well as decreased energy expenses.

Of the 10 million square feet of roof area at the central campus, over 90% are now protected by spray polyrethane foam. Texas A&M uses no other roof system for new or remedial roofing.

From 1980 to 1984, 27 buildings with a total of 593,529 square feet of roof area were re-roofed with spray polyrethane foam. The construction costs totaled $1.7M. Annual energy savings total $327,460, resulting in a 4 1/2 year discounted return on investment.

The bottom line? Spray polyrethane foam is an effective and relatively inexpensive roofing system to install, and provides the benefits of energy efficiency to help pay back the cost of the re-roofing you needed anyway.

Look for a Conklin Roofing Systems contractor in your area:
