Sikaplan Beats Tpo on Multiuse Building
When the roof on the Ranck Mill Road commercial building in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, started to fail, the new owners of the building wanted to find a roof that would last for at least 20 years but was also cost- competitive. The building owners originally considered a TPO roof because of its low price, but Atlantic Roofing Corporation of Green Lane, Pennsylvania, had another suggestion: the Sikaplan Adhered Roof System from Sika Roofing.

PVC Performance at a TPO Price
The Sikaplan Adhered membrane is a cost-effective, PVC membrane with an internal glass mat reinforcement to provide the best dimensional stability for adhered applications, along with a low coefficient of thermal expansion and contraction. And unlike the ever-changing TPO membranes, Sikaplan has a proven track record of successful installations worldwide spanning more than 30 years.
Challenges on Multiple Levels
Atlantic Roofing faced many challenges during the installation of the new roofing system. One was dealing with the multiple roofing systems and deck types.
A Proven, Professional System
“I like the competitive edge the Sikaplan PVC gives us, and Sika is a good company with a proven track record,” Chris Conn, Vice President at Atlantic Roofing added. “That’s why I’m now specifying the Sikaplan system a lot.”
