ADDRESS THESE 4 ISSUES BY DESIGNING YOUR ROOF SYSTEM FOR THE LIFE OF THE BUILDING

The Vapour/Thermal Layer

Though the Vapour/Thermal layer works in conjunction with the Waterproofing Layer, each segment should be treated separately

The Waterproofing Layer

The fundamental goal is to keep the Vapour/thermal layer in place as long as possible while only replacing the waterproofing layer

  • May be required for fire resistance
  • Provides solid support layer for Vapour Barrier
  • Provides uniform adhesion to entire substrate and all penetrations.
  • Provides easy connection to any asphaltic air barriers at perimeter and wall junctions
  • Designed to meet the requirements of ASHRA for the building location
  • Should consist of inorganic materials only, such as glass faced polyisocyanurate insulation
  • Can also incorporate mineral wool insulation
  • Should be of a high impact resistance
  • Depending on roof top traffic, could be a gypsum roof board or a high density polyisocyanurate insulation
  • Layer is critical in achieving expected longevity of the Vapour/Thermal layer
  • Utilization of 80 mil textured guaranteed thickness membrane
  • Membrane can be fully bonded or mechanically fastened
  • Membrane is 100 % recyclable at the end of its service life
  • Comes with a 30 year guarantee
  • Watch BIM Roof Layering Installation Demo

    Thorough Design

    The design of the roof assembly should be exact in requirements and expectations. This is typically addressed in an intense specification which needs to be adhered too. The details must also be fully addressed to eliminate wherever possible maintenance items such as caulking and sealer pockets.

    Workmanship

    Sika Sarnafil is the only membrane manufacturer that takes workmanship to the next level. Any roofing contractor wishing to become a Sika Sarnafil Approved Applicator must have a roofing crew undertake a 3 day in-shop training course. Only those membranes of the crew who pass will be certified.

    With warranties of up to 30 years and quality installers, your roofing is covered for a long time and there is no need to worry about it. Each Sika Sarnafil project requires the roofing contractor to ensure a minimum of three certificated members on the project at all times.

    All projects are reviewed by a Sika Sarnafil field technician, and only once all deficiencies are corrected will a warranty be issues.

    This is the only way possible for Sika Sarnafil to match quality product with good workmanship to provided extended 30 year system warranties.
