"You can't ask for a better roofing system – I love it."
- Ken Reeves, Facility Maintenance Technician, Brookshire Grocery Company
SITUATION: The 500,000 square-foot Sika Sarnafil roof on the Southwest Foods division warehouse and manufacturing facility in Tyler, Texas was installed in 1980. The roof consists of a G410 adhered Sarnafil system over the freezer section and a S327 48 mil Sarnafil mechanically attached system on the rest of the roof. In 2015, Roof Master and E.M. Marshall Company visited the roof and observed no signs of defects. Emmett Marshall of E.M. Marshall Company remarked that the two randomly selected cores "looked exceptionally good." Reeves added, "the main advantage of the roof is the longevity of the material and ease of repair – you just heat-weld a patch of the membrane to the repair and you are done."
