EcoSmart Mechanically Attached Roofing System
SIKA SARNAFIL AND DOW JOIN FORCES IN SUSTAINABILITY
Roofing systems don’t have to be disposable. By maximizing system longevity and recycling at the end of its useful life, the Sika Sarnafil EcoSmart Roof provides you with a roofing option that’s good for the environment and your wallet. The EcoSmart Roof utilizes the Sarnafil® PVC membrane, STYROFOAM™ brand extruded polystyrene insulation from Dow Building Solutions, and a gypsum roof board to produce one of the longest lasting, most ecologically responsible roofing systems available.
Below are some of the reasons why an EcoSmart roofing system might be the best fit for your project.ECOSMART SYSTEM BENEFITS:

STYROFOAM™ DECKMATE™ Plus extruded polystyrene insulation from Dow provides the insulating properties necessary to minimize heat flow through the roofing system. This reduces heating and cooling energy consumption, with the added benefit of being reusable when your building is re-roofed. Extruded polystyrene’s ability to resist moisture, which can occur in a roof assembly due to vapor drive and other sources, allows Dow Building Solutions to provide a 50-year reuse warranty on its DECKMATE Plus insulation. This means that the building owner can leave the insulation in place when the building is ready for a new roof. (*1)
The roof board is a highly mold resistant roof panel that consists of a moisture-resistant, noncombustible core of specially treated gypsum with glass mat facings. This roof board improves the fire resistance and wind uplift characteristics of the roofing system, with the added benefit of providing increased resistance to foot traffic to protect the overall roofing system and enhance its longevity.
