This page provides an in-depth look at the steps Sika Roofing is taking to become the roofing industry's leader in sustainability.

First to Earn a Platinum Rating to NSF/ANSI 347

Why Is It Important to Use an NSF/ANSI 347 Rated Membrane?

Today’s building owners face a multitude of options when it comes to selecting commercial, low-slope roofing systems. But how does one select the right system? Every manufacturer in the industry claims to have the best material, the best solutions, and the best contractors to install or replace a roof on an owner’s facility.
