Aspen, CO – The Pitkin County Library provides more than just books for the local area. The library also holds various classes, readings, and events to support this vibrant community. There is even an amphitheater for storytelling, a large children’s area, and an impressive library lab with many technological learning tools. However, the persistent Aspen snow has damaged the library’s existing decorative roof, prompting the need for a new one. The Pitkin County facilities manager, Jodi Smith, has had a positive experience using Sarnafil Roofing Systems for municipal buildings. Although the project has not begun construction yet, Sarnafil Membrane has been chosen for the installation.
Sika’s Sean Hinton, who used to participate in a rugby tournament in an adjacent field, took us to see the charming library. The library will install a new Sarnafil Décor Roof System in dark green. This system will maintain the aesthetical look of the existing decorative roof, but will also provide watertight seams to last through the Colorado winters.
The project is intended to be completed before this year’s first snowfall, because snow tends to remain in the town throughout the entire winter. Once the Sarnafil Décor Roof System is installed, the Pitkin County community will be able to enjoy their remarkable library all year long without the concern of water from snow melt entering the building. With the beautiful mountain backdrop and the fresh Colorado air, I can’t think of a better place to pick up a good book.
