A list of Sika projects where the old roofing systems are still performing properly.


In 1969, the first green roof project with Sarnafil roofing membrane was installed at the Thermal Bath in Bad Zurzach, Switzerland. Since then, Sika has developed high quality green roof systems for the market demands and become very experienced in providing tailored made green roof solutions.


Did you know that in USA national, independent testing has shown that Sika Roofing's cool roof systems can reduce energy consumption, abate urban heat and help slow the reaction of smog-forming pollutants?

Sika's cool roof system features a White, Tan, lacquer coated surface. These surfaces have been proven to reduce the amount of energy required to maintain comfort in an air-conditioned building by decreasing heat flow through the building envelope. "Cool roofing systems" can save money, improve occupant comfort, increase a roof's longevity, and reliably protect a building and its contents.
