HOUSTON — MBCI has announced that it is now offering Roof Hugger retrofit systems. Roof Hugger products can be installed over most any existing metal roof, including trapezoidal and vertical standing seam roofs, as well as existing R panel roofs. The systems provide many benefits and advantages to building owners, design professionals and roofing contractors.
Metal-over-metal retrofit roofing is the installation of a new, long-life metal roof over an existing metal roof in a way that is structurally correct, non-disruptive and cost effective. The Roof Hugger systems also add strength, are environmentally friendly and help conserve energy. In addition to fitting over most any existing roof, the systems can support a wide variety of new metal roof systems. The cavity created between the old and new roofs can be vented or the heated air can be used to preheat the make-up air for the HVAC system. This cavity can also be filled with either fiberglass or rigid insulation to increase the roof R-value. Additionally, a solar water heating system can be installed in the cavity.
