Roof structures without ballast or covering layers on the waterproofing membrane are known as “Exposed Roofs”.

Exposed roofs are ideal for lightweight roof structures with large spans as well as for complex roof structures and geometries. Sika has a wide range of exposed roof systems, all of them designed to provide high-performaning, long-lasting and sustainable solutions for roof waterproofing.

Advantages of the Sika Exposed Roofs

  • Light weight roof build-ups
  • Possibility of light / bright colored surfaces for sun and heat reflection, reducing the “heat island” effect
  • Almost unlimited design possibilities with membrane colors, profiles and roof graphics, etc.
  • They easily withstand all common environmental influences such as UV light exposure, heat and cold, air born pollution, dust, wind uplift forces, rain, hail and snow.
