Partnership to Create Standard of Excellence in Commercial and Residential Roofing and Insulation Industry

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (March 1, 2010) – Thermal Roof Systems (TRS), one of the top U.S. installers of spray polyurethane foam (SPF) roofing, and Henry® Company, a leading manufacturer and trusted source for complete building solutions, have teamed up to increase awareness surrounding the benefits of energy efficient spray foam roofing and insulation and to establish a standard of excellence for high quality craftsmanship within the industry.

“We are excited to be aligning ourselves with a top quality manufacturer like Henry Company,” said Al Kennedy, general manager of TRS.  “Our goal is to work together to increase awareness of the benefits of SPF, elevate the standards within the industry and ensure that customers are receiving best in class service and superior technical expertise along with a top notch product. The TRS/Henry partnership will give us a national platform to achieve these goals.”

According to Alan Davenport, senior vice president of building envelope systems at Henry® Company, “SPF is a key segment of our business and this partnership will enable us to accelerate our growth in this market sector. By teaming up with such a credible and technically skilled company as TRS, we are able to create a position of strength in the spray foam business.”

SPF lends itself to a variety of applications on commercial and residential buildings, specifically on flat roof industrial, office, retail, medical office and wine tanks.  Applied in liquid form on flat roof buildings, SPF expands approximately 30 times its original volume and cures in a short amount of time after application. A layer of elastomeric coating is applied that gives it a durable weather resistant, sun reflective surface. The result is a seamless weather tight membrane that is long lasting and lightweight. Benefits include waterproofing and leak prevention, strong insulation performance, superior compressive strength, and durability.  Additionally, using SPF roof systems may contribute points toward LEED certification.
