  • What a stunning sight on a Monday morning! Not only is the light grey #SikaSarnafil Decor roof protecting US veterans from the Nevada elements but it is also helping cut down energy cost by 50 percent (compared to the previous standing seam metal roof) #SikaEveryDay #Successwithsika #sustainabilitymatters #sustainableroofs

  • The National Museum of the Marine Corps carries on their mission:  to commemorate the past, present, and future of the Corps. 
James Myers Company was called upon to install a new #SikaSarnafil roof on the building expansion that would house new exhibits focusing on Operation Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm such as the Genesis II, a fully restored M60A1 battle tank, a F/A-18 Hornet jet, expanded educational facilities, and a one of a kind theater. #roofinglife #constructionworld #successwithsika #sikaeverday

  • The @theloftsatrivereast  roof in Chicago, has many different elements on it, including a party deck, elevator penetrations, lots of new duct work, HVAC equipment and a vegetated green roof. “Anything you can think of that can be on a roof is on this roof,” said August Mitchell, vice president of construction for Ghafari Associates of Chicago, the construction manager of this project. #SikaSarnafil #GreenRoof #sikaeveryday #successwithsika #ChicagoRoofing #ChicagoGreenRoof #sustainableroofs
  • How strong is Sika Post Fix?  This chain has been embedded in one bag of Post Fix to secure a bike rack.  This innovative product was the prefect replacement for a bag of concrete - no water or messy mixing needed and it sets much faster. #sikaeveryday #concrete #sucesswithsika
  • Sika admixtures are playing a key role in repairing the Oroville Dam Spillway back to its original design capacity. In February 2017, engineers noticed concrete erosion on the flood control spillway at the Oroville Dam. Rising water levels beyond the dam’s height required use of the emergency spillway for the first time in the dam’s history.  What concrete wasn’t washed away on the lower part of the main part of the spillway is being removed to allow for construction of a replacement.  #Concrete #OrovilleDam #Oroville #SuccesswithSika #SikaEveryDay #Construction
