foam roof repair

Urethane foam is light yellow in color, and it is UV sensitive when exposed to sunlight. Exposure to sunlight will cause the foam to turn brown and form cracks that will absorb water and form blisters. If a blister breaks open it must be thoroughly cleaned, trimmed and coated, or filled with spray foam and coated.
