Roof Hugger, LLC

Pinellas Expo Center, Pinellas Park, FL, was reroofed with vertical rib roofing installed over an existing standing seam roof with the aid of Roof Hugger retrofit roof framing.

The new 3”-high 16” o.c. vertical rib panels, rolled on-site, were fastened on top of 3-1/2”- and 7-1/4”-high Roof Huggers that were installed on existing 24” o.c. trapezoidal standing seam panels.

The retrofit roofing contractor for the 14,000 sq. ft. project was Nu-Tec Roofing Div. of New Millennium Roofing, Tampa, FL. Law Engineering & Environmental Services Inc. handled engineering.

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.
