About The Program
The “Metal-over-Metal” retrofit re-roofing market represents literally billions of square feet of opportunity for contractors and design professionals. Older metal buildings have roofs that have reached the end of their service life. This program will explain how to re-roof without removing the existing roof while at the same time, upgrading to current building code requirements and integrating energy efficient and renewable solar technologies.
