Eco & Health Conscience.
Abril EcoFoam™, or as it's technically known, Sprayed Polyurethane Foam (SPF) is the ideal solution for energy conscious Bay Area home owners seeking the highest performing and sustainable options available, because there is no other material on the market more effective and energy efficient.
A Greener Home
The architectural, design and engineering communities have utilized the many benefits and unique characteristics of SPF for nearly half a century and there’s a reason why polyurethane foam is used in most every refrigerator, hot water heater, refreshment cooler, insulated flask, and hot tub.
When considering green materials Abril EcoFoam™ is the material of choice, offering you both a bio-content and a favorable impact on the environment due to its inherent energy saving benefits.
Some products are green because of material they are made from or the energy consumed to produce it. Others, such as Abril EcoFoam™, are also green because of its long lifecycle benefits.
So you’ll not only be reducing your homes carbon footprint the improved heating and cooling efficiency will significantly reduce your energy costs too... and if that wasn’t enough, your home will be more comfortable and healthier too.
A Healthier Home
Ecofoam Insulation provides a sealed thermal envelope. When applied, the insulation conforms and fills each cavity, crevasse and void. ECOfoam Insulation contributes to the overall comfort and health of the occupants of a home because it is a seamless monolithic blanket of insulation. The foam used in the roofing industry is a closed cell foam. Inside the cells of the foam contains an inert gas which resists temperature change. The result is a high R-6.5 per inch insulation rating. That combined with a “Cool Roof” reflective top coat can achieve up to a 15 degree temperature reduction on hot days and save you up to 30% on your heats costs in the winter.
There are no fibers or “clumps” of loose matter. By reducing air infiltration, the insulation also reduces dust and harmful, household mold and mildew. Ecofoam Insulation provides a healthier, draft-free, indoor environment with no harmful emissions that can cause allergic reactions.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air quality is a major concern for most home owners. Spray Foam Insulation addresses this problem several ways. It is devoid of emissions and contaminants that can affect your health. It improves air quality by nearly eliminating air infiltration. In the summer it will help reduce moisture infiltration and in the winter it will help keep warm humid air in the living space. Since it helps air seal your home it also helps people who suffer from allergies by keeping contaminants out of the living space.
Unlike more traditional methods of insulating, spray foam insulation is free of all HFAs, HCFCs, HFCs, and formaldehyde. Once spray foam has cured and is in place the final product is chemically dead and contains no potential health risks whatsoever.
We’re Eichler Specialists
We understand these modern residential masterpieces inside and out. We bring highly skilled craftsmanship, extensive experience, attention to detail and a sensitivity to design aesthetics to every Eichler project.
Most flat or low sloped roofs have water drainage problems so standing water can create leaks and shorten the life span of roofs. Because a foam roof is sprayed on we can spray additional foam in low spots to eliminate large water ponds.
Did you know? EcoFoam roofs are made of a durable high-density material which is highly walkable.
All under one roof.
We do more than just install new foam roofs. We recoat and restore existing foam roofs as well. We also offer a slew of other roof related services because installing a new roof rarely involves just roofing.
Do you already have a contractor you’re working with but they don’t offer foam roofs? We work with many different outside contractors on various projects like solar, AC and new electric service.
Recoating & Restoration
Foam roofs consist of a layer of foam covered over by a layer of acrylic coating or paint and just like any other paint, it wears off. One highly unique advantage to a foam roof is its sustainability. You can simply reapply the paint to continue the life of the roof.
Commercial Foam Roofs
Abril Roofing also serves the commercial market. We’ve installed foam roofs on schools, apartment complexes, hospitals and industrial buildings and have many references available.
Abril Roofing is your skylight specialist. We can replace existing skylights or install brand new ones. We offer all types of skylights including acrylic domed, flat glass, operable and tubular.
Eichler Beam Repairs
Do you have dry rot in your exposed beams or do you simply want to protect them? Abril Roofing does all types of beam repairs and installs protective metal beam caps.
Eichler Siding Replacement
Abril Roofing installs original preprimed Eichler style siding and trim. While the siding is off, Abril Roofing can replace the wall insulation for you also well.
Dry Rot Repairs
When getting your roof redone it is important that all dry rotted wood is replaced. That's why Abril Roofing also has great carpenters. We replace all types of facia boards and wood sheeting.
Other Roofing Systems
