ENERGY STAR Roofing Products
Sika Sarnafil is proud to offer our customers products that have earned the government's ENERGY STAR label. Sika Sarnafil was one of the first single-ply membrane manufacturers to label roofing products under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR® Roof Products program. The program is a voluntary partnership between the EPA and a select group of roof product manufacturers. The focus of the program is to promote the environmental and economic benefits of reflective roofing.
The EPA and the U.S. Department of Energy created the ENERGY STAR label programs to help consumers quickly and easily identify ENERGY STAR roofing products that can save them money and protect the environment through reduced energy consumption.
Buildings like this Starbucks Roasting Plant can realize significant energy savings by installing an ENERGY STAR roofing product like the Sarnafil EnergySmart Roof® membrane versus a black EPDM or traditional asphalt roof.
