CANTON, Mass. - Sika Sarnafil, a leading
manufacturer of vinyl roofing and waterproofing systems, recently recognized
three roofing consultant firms for outstanding design and specification work.
A panel of eight independent roofing consultants evaluated
16 project entries submitted by consultants for consideration. The projects
were evaluated on project design and complexity, design uniqueness, roof
performance, and creative problem solving.
First place recognition was awarded to Roof Tech Inc., of
Merrillville, Ind., for their work with the Smokey Row Elementary School in
Carmel, Ind. Roof Tech specified corrective action for large portions of a
leaking, standing seam metal roof. The challenge was to integrate new, large
roof sections into the remaining portions of an existing metal roof and to do
so seamlessly from both a construction standpoint and from an aesthetic
perspective. The school’s complex rooflines ruled out the use of metal.
Roof Tech ultimately recommended Sika Sarnafil’s Décor Roof
System in a custom grey color. The ribbed vinyl membrane provided outstanding,
watertight protection and integrated perfectly into the existing metal roof
Independent Roofing Consultants (IRC) of Santa Ana, Calif.,
was recognized in second place for their efforts at the St. John's Regional
Medical Center in Oxnard, Calif. IRC recommended a tear-off of the hospital’s
entire built-up roofing assembly, 170,000-square-foot in total, and the
replacement of the system’s roofing insulation.
IRC specified Sika Sarnafil's highly reflective,
energy-efficient EnergySmart Roof membrane as the new roofing system, and
helped to coordinate the reroofing efforts without significantly affecting the
Third place recognition went to Roof Design & Consulting
Services, Inc., of Knoxville, Tenn.,
for their work on a series of buildings at the Orange
in Chattanooga, Tenn., a private habilitation organization
serving adults and children with developmental disabilities. Roof Design
initiated and coordinated corrective action for nearly 200,000-square-foot of
failing roof situated throughout the complex. The company specified Sika
Sarnafil’s EnergySmart Roof for major portions of this varied project, and
completed the assignment on budget and with no interruption to the Center’s
