SPF Foam Roofing on Gables?


Hello All,

I'm needing to re-roof my house and have read a lot of good things online about SPF foam roofing. I'm reading that it's lightweight, durable and a thorough moisture and heat seal. However, when I talk to contractors I'm getting mixed information about whether or not foam roofing is appropriate for a roof with gables. The small gables on my house are about at a 45 degree angle and amount to maybe 150 square feet. I'm aware that foam would resemble a layer of snow and could hurt the 'curb-appeal' were I to sell my house. But is there any major reason besides appearance not to put SPF foam onto gables or slightly sloping roofs?

Thanks,
