open cell roof coating question
I just spray foamed my first roof with .5 lb open cell foam and am having a real hard time coating it. How do you paint it without leaving foot prints in the foam?

Dude. That's funny. I mean you just put one big smile on my face.

Open cell on a roof... That's great.

Haha, I had been deep in thought after having sprayed foam for fourteen hours straight and thought it would be kinda funny to write that. I really should start wearing a respirator!

850 mils of polyurea should help.

Every time that I see the post pop up, I get a chuckle out of it.

Way to keep it light!

You mean you can't just spray some exterior latex from Lowe's on it? Hmm, I need to refigure this quote for my first roofing job then!

The funny thing is a guy in Northern Minnesota did that. He sprayed several fish houses on the exterior with icynene. The resort painted them with brown paint. Couldn't figure out why their plywood was taking on so much water. Guess you could call it job security for us.

Saturday, it was hot as heck in the attic of a new construction and I was spraying 1/2 pound. Over and overhang (less than 10 X 10), I sprayed 5 inches of OC and then a little while later, I stepped onto when I was trying to move to another spot.

I had to laugh as I was left with a perfect footprint and it reminded me of this post.

Keep it light!
