Eco Roofing Ltd specialise in this type of flat roofing. Sika Trocal style first became available in the UK in 1972 and has continued to develop and grow into a popular method for installing flat roofs. The Sika Trocal method consists of mechanically attaching a series of ply membranes to each other, in order to create a lightweight and efficient roofing solution for a wide range of buildings, old and new.
Each piece of ply membrane is mechanically attached to each other in layers on the support structure. A polyester panel on each membrane guards against high wind resistance and helps to strengthen the roof. The membranes can be attached in various different ways, including:

There are many advantages to Sika Trocal Roofing, as opposed to traditional tiled or felt roofing.
Not only does this cut down on labour cost, but it also allows us to concentrate on other parts of the roof, such as the support structure. The fastening process does not involve naked flames or melting, which improves the safety of workers during its installation.
Much needed in our climate, but the fastening system and layered structure ensures protection against the British climate for up to 30 years!
The lightweight nature of Sika Trocal roofs means less steel is needed to support it underneath, which saves time and cost!
Sika Trocal roofs can last up to 30 years, before maintenance may be needed.
Sika Trocal may be water resistance from above, but from below it allows water vapour to exit the building, meaning there is no build up of condensation or mould.
There is no need to re-paint, re-tile or do anything with Sika Trocal roofing! Well not at least for another 30 years!
The roof has a smooth and modern appearance when fitted with Sika Trocal, which stays clean and does not get clogged up with moss or other debris.
With its ease of installation, reliability, lightweight structure and long-lasting nature, Sika Trocal roofing provides a cost effective solution.
Traditional roofs can be converted into Sika Trocal on existing buildings and can be moulded into different shapes to suit the shape of the building, especially on those which were built before this type of roofing was even invented!
