Unleash the power of the sun and turn your non-depreciating roof space into an energy generating asset. A solar roofing system can reduce your energy consumption costs and your reliance on the utility grid while providing a high performance roofing system.
Solar modules can last more than 25 years, necessitating a long lasting, "solar ready" roofing system . Sika Sarnafil solar-ready vinyl roof systems are durable and have been proven to last for decades.
Sika Sarnafil roofing systems are lightweight and require minimal maintenance — important characteristics for any solar roof system. The white Sika Sarnafil EnergySmart Roof® membrane reflects the sun’s rays to help keep building interiors cooler, and also helps to keep the solar modules cool, as well. This contributes to the efficiency of the solar modules. The reflected sunlight from the EnergySmart Roof membrane, when combined with direct and diffuse sunlight, enhances the solar roofs performance of certain types of solar roof modules.

"Supply a net fraction of the building's total energy use (as expressed as a fraction of annual energy cost) through the use of on-site renewable energy systems."
As interest in Photovoltaic (PV) Systems continues to gain momentum, Sika Sarnafil has been asked about installing Photovoltaic (PV) Systems on warranted roofs. Attached is Sika Sarnafil’s Warranty Continuation Policy for your review. It outlines our requirements and recommendations for maintaining your warranty coverage when PV is to be installed.
