We love the spray foam you did for our home. Added 900 square ft, you put 6" foam in our roof 3 years ago over the upstairs addition. Our energy bills didn't go up a penny- just shows how much heat we were losing in the winter and letting in the attic in the summer. Great investment!

I have seen the Spray Foam system before, but only in the home improvement shows on TV. I was introduced to Apex by my contractor, and was convinced to try it. Couldn't be happier! Great return on investment.
- Mike, Nashville TN
I was in my house built in 1948 for 3 winters, each year I would add more fiberglass insulation to the floors in my crawl space. My home was never warm until I tried spray foam. Not only is the house warmer, but it has saved me money on the energy bill.
- Michael, Nashville TN
Apex Building Company provided whole house residential spray foam insulation for my new home. They did an excellent professional job. I would recommend them for any insulation job of any size!
- George, Jackson TN
I hired this company to spray insulation into my newly built steel construction home. They came in and did a very professional job enclosing the entire shell with open cell foam, sealing every conceivable leak. I have been very please with the results and ascribe my low utility bills to it!
- Pete, Memphis TN
Apex was very professional and knew about the product they were selling. I talked to several spray foam contractors and none of them were as knowledgeable as Michael at Apex. They cleaned up well and made sure things were done to suit me. I Highly Recommend them for anything spray foam or insulation!

HOW TO DESIGN A ROOFING MAINTENANCE PROGRAM:
Once you purchase a new roof system, it is important to develop a comprehensive maintenance plan. Unfortunately, after a new roof system is installed, it is often the most forgotten and ignored of all building components. Meanwhile, other areas and systems receive routine maintenance. What many building owners don’t realize is that small problems stemming from neglect, normal aging, abuse, contamination, or accident may result in extensive, costly repairs or premature failure if not addressed early on. The answer lies in conducting regular roof maintenance inspections.
Using a three step approach, here’s how to ensure your roof gets the attention it deserves:
STEP 1: Schedule Routine Inspections
To prolong the life of your roof system, APEX suggests scheduling at least two inspections a year – one in the spring and one in the fall. In the spring, check for damage that may have occurred over the winter. Be sure the roof system is in good condition for the upcoming summer heat and storms. As winter approaches, make sure the roof is ready to weather high winds, snow and cold temperatures. You should also inspect the roof after a severe storm or wind event throughout the year.
STEP 2: Develop a Checklist
When starting an inspection program first decide on the type of system that will be used for filing, accessing and updating information about the roof’s condition. You’ll want general information such as the roof plan (with dimensions if possible) showing location of rooftop equipment, details, roof access and warranty information. Additional file information should include:
- Detail drawings
- Deck type and thickness
- Original specifications, approved submittals
- Warranty information
- Prior inspection and maintenance reports
- Details of any changes made to the roof system, substrate and roof top equipment.
STEP 3: The Inspection
When conducting the inspection, a systematic approach works best, with inspection items grouped as follows:
- Maintenance Items
- Condition of Structure
- Condition of Roofing Membrane
- Condition of Flashing
Using a checklist approach, items can be marked as “accepted”, “minor problem” or “major problem.” The location and action taken should be noted along with the date of the fix. All components should be closely inspected with particular attention to sealants, pitch pans, physical damage, drains and drainage systems and debris.
If repairs are needed, contact APEX Building Company to ensure that the manufacturer specifications and National Association of Roofing Contractor guidelines are maintained for a quality job.
