The prestigious industry awards program celebrates stand-out contractors and projects in the categories of spray foam roofing, insulation and specialty applications, as well as elastomeric coatings. Arkema and Evonik are this year’s awards sponsors.

“We look forward to these awards every year,” says Rick Duncan, executive director of the SPFA. “They are a way for us all to learn about the current outstanding projects in spray foam and coatings and to celebrate the skills and dedication of the teams who have completed them.”
