October 5, 2011
Cost-effective, BASF spray foam attic-truss installation can improve roof strength by 200 percent.
BASF's closed-cell spray polyurethane foam products have received hurricane-zone approval from the Miami-Dade County Building and Neighborhood Compliance (BNC) Department. Tests and engineering evaluations of Comfort Foam and Spraytite (178 series) applied at roofing trusses increased the wind-uplift resistance of a traditional code-approved home roof by more than 200 percent.
