INDUSTRYNEWS Attention Grabbing Demos at National Homebuilding and Renovating Show 2014 Demonstrations of the application of the Sarnafil single ply flat roof membrane again attracted large numbers of visitors to the Roof Assured by Sarnafil stand at the National Homebuilding & Renovating Show 2014 at the NEC. Many visitors had been advised by their Architects to use the Sarnafil membrane on their project so the live demos were an ideal opportunity for them to see how the membrane is applied and have their questions answered. Rod Benson, Business Unit Manager, Sika Roofing, said: “The Sarnafil membrane gives homeowners a new option to traditional felt, grp and rubber flat roof solutions so it is understandable that they wanted to know who we are, what we do and why we are different. The demos gave them the opportunity to follow their Architect’s advice and think about the Sarnafil membrane for their new build or refurbishment project. “Our presence demonstrated the high level of support we give our installer network in build brand awareness and generating leads”. Roof Assured at the Homebuilding & Renovating Show, HIC, Harrogate, 7 – 9 November 2014.
