St. Croix Warehouse

Roof Hugger, LLC

This warehouse, located in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, received a new standing seam metal roof that was installed over an existing screw-down metal roof. The 80,000 sq. ft. project was made possible with the help of Roof Hugger retrofit roof framing.

The new roof was a 12” o.c. standing seam profile, rollformed on-site with a Knudson machine, from 316 alloy stainless steel.

The retrofit roofing contractor was Apco Building Systems, Lutz, FL.

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.
