This enormous warehouse, located in southwest Phoenix, is roughly the size of five and a half football fields. Arizona Foam & Spray was brought in to spray 1″ of Quik-Shield 125 2.5lb roofing foam over the plywood deck, followed by 2 coats of Quik-Shield 1929F acrylic roof coating. The immense project took 120,000 pounds of foam, 10,000 gallons of coating, and 60 days to complete.

Aurora Village
   Youngtown, AZ

Project Size: 13,269 square feet
Products: Quik-Shield 125 2.8 roofing foam, Quik-Shield 2020 cementitious roof coating
System Benefit: lower predictable energy expenses and roof maintenance costs

Aurora Village is a three story, Spanish style building featuring one and two bedroom apartment homes for seniors aged 62. Ensuring low building costs and a longer roof life-span is why this new construction had original specifications for a foam roof. The low slope roof system had parapet walls, with the foam all the way to top edge of the parapet. In addition, the roof was between 75 and 80 percent covered in photovoltaic panels. Spray foam was the perfect product to apply around all of the equipment supports and roof penetrations, to ensure the roof would be leak free for years to come.

Arizona Foam & Spray was recognized for this project by the Spray Polyurethane Foam Alliance (SPFA) as a 2014 project finalist of the National Industry Excellence Awards in the Roof Foam less than 40,000 square feet category.

IBM Complex
   Tucson, AZ

Owner: IBM
General Contractor: W. E. O’Neil
Project Size: 1.7 Million square feet
Products: Quik-Shield 125 Roofing Foam, Quik-Shield 1929F Acrylic Coating
System Benefit: Long-lasting, leak protection

The IBM complex is comprised of 11 buildings and over 1.7 million square feet of roofs. Twenty years ago, when it came time to replace the previous built-up roofs, IBM consulted the Del E. Webb School of Construction at Arizona State University to determine the best roof and the best contractor to install it. Their results concluded that spray foam roofing and Arizona Foam & Spray were the best options for IBM. Arizona Foam & Spray applied 1 1/2″ of Quik-Shield 125 Roofing Foam and two coats of Quik-Shield 1929F Acrylic Coating.

Arizona Foam & Spray continues to maintain the roofs of the IBM complex to this day.

Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport
   Mesa, AZ

Owner: Able Engineering
Architect: Cawley Architects
Project Size: 160,304 square feet
Products: Quik-Shield 125 2.5 roofing foam, Quik-Shield 1929F acrylic roof coating
System Benefit: substantial energy savings, flexibility to accommodate design changes

Rapid growth led to a major move for Able Engineering, an aerospace manufacturing company specializing in repair work on both fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters. They partnered with the City of Mesa and Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport Authority to have one built at the growing Gateway airport. The entire roof was sprayed with 1.5” of Quik-Shield 125 roofing foam. To provide higher system R-value, 1.5” to 3.3” inches of Polyisocyanurate board was mechanically fastened to the metal deck of the hanger, plating facility and machine shop roofs, prior to the foam being applied.
