Roof Hugger System
Roof Hugger Recover System
Roof Hugger Retrofit Sub-Purlins are zee-shaped structural members that are typically 10 to 12 feet in length. They are made from minimum 16-gauge, high strength, galvanized steel and specifically notched to fit over the
ribs of the existing metal roof panels.
Roof Hugger Recover System offers:
- Easy upgrade from screw-down to standing seam roof
- Testing sub-framing system for Metal over Metal
- Significant time and money saver
- Minimal interruptions
- Comply with current and stringent building codes
This factory notching provides a correct “structure to structure” connection with the least possible increase in assembly height. In addition, the system add strength to the existing roof system thus assisting in offsetting the added weight of the new Metal-over-Metal roof components. Roof Hugger sub-purlins can be fabricated for almost any existing metal roof panel profile including screw-down and standing seams and up 10 inches tall to accommodate for added insulation between the old and new roofs.
