Christ Community Church

Roof Hugger, LLC

Christ Community Church, Houston, TX, was reroofed with standing seam roofing, installed over an existing standing seam roof with the aid of Roof Hugger retrofit roof framing.

The new 3”-high trapezoidal standing seam panels were manufactured by Whirlwind Building Systems, Houston, TX. Those 24” o.c. panels were fastened onto 3-1/2”-high Roof Huggers that were installed on existing 3”-high trapezoidal standing seam panels.

The retrofit roofing contractor for the 8,000 sq. ft. project was Independent Steel Erectors Inc., Houston, TX.

About Roof Hugger

roof hugger logoRoof Hugger notched sub-purlins enable replacement of new metal roof panels over an old metal roof. They can be used over screw-down or standing seam roof systems and can accommodate new standing seam or screw-down panels. Roof Huggers also maintain integrity of original design loadings; achieve "thermal break" air space between old and new roof sheets; allow for optional insulation; and are laboratory and load tested—with certified load charts.
