Tampa East Industrial Park Warehouse

Roof Hugger, LLC

This warehouse project in the Tampa East Industrial Park, Tampa, FL, was reroofed with vertical rib metal panels, installed over an existing screw-down roof with the aid of Roof Hugger retrofit roof framing.

The new panels with 16” o.c. vertical ribs were rollformed on-site by Fabral, Lancaster, PA. The panels, in lengths up to 105’, were formed from 24-gauge steel. They were attached to 1.83”-high Roof Huggers that were installed onto the existing metal R panels.

The roofing contractor for the 80,000 sq. ft. project was Nu-Tec Roofing Contractors. Designer/engineer was LawGibb Engineering Group.

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.
