Scottsdale Foam Roof Repair Contractors
Foam roofing has big advantages over other types of flat roofs. As a result, over 90% of new flat roofs in Arizona are choosing foam as their application of choice.
It is typically more expensive than other types of flat roofs, but how much does it actually cost?
That depends on several different factors. The first thing you should do is get an estimate from a professional, qualified Phoenix roofing contractor, maybe from several, to get an idea of what they would charge to apply on on your property.
If the existing roof on your property is in good enough shape, depending on its size, you can expect that the estimate will probably come in somewhere between $3,500 to $13,000+.
But, if your current roof system has some issues, they will need to be repaired before a roofing company installs a newspray foam system. That could mean tearing off your old roofing system before installing a new one.
But, lets assume that you existing roof is in good enough shape. Let’s look at the reasons that an average spray foam roofing system costs what it does.
The final price of the new roof is affected by several factors:
- The size of the roof
- How complicated the roof’s features are
- The roofing contractor themselves

The biggest factor that affect the amount of the estimate is the physical size of your roof.
One square in roofing vernacular is a 100 sq. ft. area of size (10 x10). Roofing contractors will measure your roof and give you a quote based on how many squares they will need to install. As an example, if your roof is 2,800 sq feet, your quote will be for 28 squares of foam. The cost of one square of foam roofing, however, can vary from roofing company to roofing company.
The cost of a spray polyurethane foam roof can be between $250 to $300 per square for the first 1” of foam. Which means that if if you have a property that has a roof with 2,800 sq ft, a new foam roof quote will probably be between $7,000 to $8,400.
By features, we mean how many things your roof has like chimneys, skylights, vent fans, etc. Since they have to be worked around, the more features your roof has, the higher your estimate will probably be.
Your roofer may also need to perform repairs of flashing around the chimneys, skylights and vents. This can also add to the cost.

The roofing contractor
When you get competing roofing estimates, many times there will be a wide disparity between them. One can be much less than the other, or maybe all the others. You would think that if you received a lower offer that it would be a good thing because you’ll save a lot of money, but, you need to know the reasons that each estimate was written the way it was.
That one estimate may be lower because that company isn’t offering you the same quality of service and materials as the higher estimating companies are. Spray foam installation takes a lot of practice to be applied correctly, so it makes the roofing company you hire to apply the foam roof a critical factor in it being done correctly. In fact it may be the most important factor.
There are several things that could affect the quality of the installation:
- Using subcontractors instead of the roofing contractor installing the roof.
- Whether the roofing company you hire are licensed, bonded or insured. No matter how much money it might save, never hire a contractor that isn’t properly licensed and insured.
- Whether you get a warranty for labor and not just material.
- Whether the roofing contractor is disposing of the old roofing materials properly.
As you can see, all factors considered, the cheapest quote may not always be the best one to accept.
Get several estimates, read the contracts carefully, then make a careful, informed decision to make the best choice.
