Target Market Roofing is pleased to once again recognize outstanding achievement in the application of the company’s roofing and waterproofing systems by revealing the 2014 Project of the Year winners. This year was especially difficult to choose the winners as dozens of exceptional projects from around the country were submitted, many of which offered incredible examples of sustainable roofs.

When all was said and done, an overall winner and two finalists were recognized for outstanding workmanship in the areas of design, application and installation. Awards were given in four categories – Sustainability, Low Slope, Steep Slope and Waterproofing – and were presented to projects that were completed using a Sika® thermoplastic membrane for roofing or waterproofing applications.

“Each entry is judged on project complexity, design uniqueness, craftsmanship and creative problem solving,” said Brian J. Whelan, Sika Executive Vice President - Roofing. “Compliments to all on a job well done. We are truly grateful to have such a talented group of professionals representing Sika and our products.”
