Buckley Roofing worked with the architect and general contractor before starting construction of the Capitol Federal Amphitheater. The architect wanted a roof resembling metal without the hassle of a real metal roof, for fear of water leaks. Buckley Roofing presented the Décor Roofing System, as this was the most cost-effective system with the look and functionality the project team wanted.
This Décor Roofing System uses Sika’s Sarnafil roof membrane with the Décor profile rib that mimics the look of a metal roof, while keeping it watertight. The ribs can be spaced any distance apart to give the look desired by the architect, with any configuration or color, allowing a truly customizable roof. The continuous thermoplastic roof membrane and the hot-air welded seams provide a long-lasting waterproofing solution regardless of the shape or design of the building, which was critical to the design of the Amphitheater’s roof.
