MBCI Partners with Roof Hugger to Offer Metal-over-metal Retrofit Roofing

MBCI is now offering Roof Hugger retrofit systems. Roof Hugger products can be installed over most existing metal roofs, including trapezoidal and vertical standing-seam roofs, as well as existing R panel roofs. Roof Hugger 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 Roof Hugger system 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.

MBCI’s family of companies manufacture metal roof and wall systems and roll-up doors. Solutions include single skin and insulated metal panels, standing seam roof systems, retrofit roofing systems, roll-up doors and photovoltaic systems. MBCI has 33 facilities located strategically throughout the U.S., including retail outlets in select cities, serving the commercial, industrial, architectural, agricultural, institutional, residential and self-storage market.
