Roofing is the Search the List category to find well-rated and reviewed vendors for this - and you can find a LOT of previous questions with answers on typical cost, roofing issues, some opinions on specific brands, etc in the Home > Roofing link under Browse Projects, at lower left. Generally, for a foam roof you will be needing to look at commercial, not residential roofers - so most of the listings on Angies List may not be applicable to your case - find roofers experienced with foam roofing, not a first-timer.

If you are talking foam as the exterior surface, i would do some serious research on that before going with it - not only does it need a good (typically spray epoxy) coating to protect it from minor impacts and solar degradation, but in my opinion is not a good idea on flat roofs. Insulation board UNDER a roofing membrane or such, fine.

I would also seriously look into putting a slope on your flat roof during the reroof process - commonly done (during a roofing tearoff) using tapered foam blocks to provide a typically 1/4" per foot slope (about 2%) - which can be done in many ways for drainage but for a typical house sized roof ideally sloping to the outside of the roof in as many directions as feasible without any mid-roof drain penetrations - usually sloped out to all 4 sides unless you have a compelling reason not to do so, and ideally adding some roof overhang in the process if you have a zero overhang roof now.
