A COST COMPETITIVE ROOFING SYSTEM FROM THE LEADER IN THERMOPLASTIC ROOFING INSTALLATIONS
A-Denver Roofing’s Adhered and Mechanically Attached Roofing Systems are ideally suited for applications that call for a quality, cost effective roofing membrane from a trusted Denver arearoofing contractor. And who better to trust than one of the industry leaders in Colorado.
LEADING THE CHARGE
In 1962, our product supplier Sika pioneered the use of PVC roofing applications developing the world’s first thermoplastic membrane billions of square feet sold to date. No one has more knowledge of PVC and thermoplastic roof membranes than Sika. Our Sika roofing and waterproofing membranes are the most trusted PVC sheet for long lasting durability in industry. You can trust in A-Denver Roofing to choose the best possible product to install on your commercial building in the Denver area.
• 1962 – Sarnafil®, the world’s first reinforced thermoplastic roof membrane, is introduced
• 1965 – The first fiberglass, mat-reinforced roofing membrane for adhered applications is developed
• 1977 – Sikaplan reinforced thermoplastic roof membrane is introduced
• 1979 – Colored membrane is introduced for the first time ever
• 1987 – The first felt-backed membrane is created
• 1998 – EnergySmart® roof membrane is introduced with high reflectivity and emissivity to promote energy efficiency
• 2005 – The first “post-consumer” recycling program of single-ply roofing is introduced. Membrane “take-back” program reduces waste to landfill
WITH RELIABILITY COMES PEACE OF MIND
The Sikaplan® membranes boast features such as low maintenance, durability, reflectivity, and watertight performance on Colorado roofs of any design, shape or pitch.
INTERNAL GLASS MAT OR POLYESTER SCRIM REINFORCEMENTS
In keeping with Sika’s high standards, an internal glass mat or polyester scrim layer provides superior dimensional stability and/ or tear resistance no matter what installation method is used.
MEET YOUR SUSTAINABILITY GOALS
The Sikaplan® membranes are available in EnergySmart white, tan and light gray, with and without a felt backing. EnergySmart white membranes meet the cool roofing requirements of USGBC’s LEED® program, and Green Globes®. Perfect for Colorado’s high UV rays.
SUPERIOR FIRE PERFORMANCE
While fire safety codes have greatly improved in Colorado over the years, losses from fire are still an ongoing issue. One of the most vulnerable components of a building when exposed to fire is the roof. Being PVC, Sikaplan® membranes are naturally fire retardant.
Like all Sika membranes, Sikaplan® is thermoplastic, allowing seams and flashings to be hot air welded using an automatic hot-air welder. When welded together, the sheets of membrane become one monolithic layer of material impervious to Colorado’s harsh wind and rain events.
Sikaplan® membranes are manufactured with a unique coating, which helps repel dirt and airborne contaminates from the membrane’s surface. Keeping this membrane bright white to reflect Colorado’s harsh UV rays.
Technical support services are available. The company’s support team provides the most coverage in the industry with field technicians located in every region of Colorado.
As with our other membranes, A-Denver Roofing hires only authorized applicators to install our PVC roofing systems. These applicators are trained by our supplier Sika to ensure only the highest level of quality for your commercial properties in the Denver area.
BENEFIT FROM PVC PERFORMANCE AT A TPO PRICE
From retail facilities to warehouses all over Colorado, A-Denver Roofing’s PVC roofing systems have been providing reliable protection to facilities around the state for over thirty years.
SIKAPLAN ADHERED COMMERCIAL PVC ROOFING SYSTEM
The Sikaplan® Adhered System is a single-ply PVC roofing membrane designed for low-slope roofing applications in the Denver area. The membrane has an internal glass mat reinforcement to provide the best dimensional stability and a low coefficient of thermal expansion and contraction to extend the service life of the roof. When used in combination with Sikaplan Water-Based Adhesive, it is in many cases as cost effective as adhered TPO due to improved adhesive coverage rates and the one-step application versus TPO’s two-steps. This environmentally preferable water-based adhesive also lowers costs by minimizing material usage through the use of recommended application methods and by facilitating faster applications, making it ideal for Colorado based businesses.
The Sikaplan® Mechanically Attached System is a single ply PVC roofing membrane designed for low-slope roofing applications. The membrane has an internal polyester scrim reinforcement to provide the tear resistance required for mechanically attached roof systems.
This innovative attachment system is used with Sikaplan® membranes to increase contractor productivity and enhance roof wind uplift resistance. It uses electromagnetic induction welding to eliminate fastener penetrations through the membrane. Specially coated membrane plates are fastened to the roof assembly and later fused to the underside of the membrane using the RhinoBond tool, which is lightweight, portable, and simple to use. The system achieves an FM 1-90 rating in the field while requiring 30 percent fewer fasteners per square than traditional systems.
TPO membranes have not experienced the same performance success as PVC and have had a number of failures since being introduced. EPDM seams are glued or taped rather than heatwelded; this seaming method breaks down over time compromising the water tightness. Sikaplan’s proven track record of successful installations spans more than thirty years. Why settle for a less reliable product on your building?
