Roof Hugger Systems can fit over virtually any existing metal roof panel profile, support any new roof panel whether thru-fastened or standing seam and be configured to add insulation up to R-50 using fiberglass or rigid board as well as solar energy equipment between the old and new roofs. The finished retrofit roof assembly is a perfect platform for the addition solar photovoltaic systems. Roof Huggers allow for the installation of a new long life metal roof over an existing metal roof in a way that is structurally correct, non-disruptive, and cost effective. It is a system that adds strength to the existing roof structure, is environmentally friendly, cooler in summer, warmer in winter and conserves energy.

Roof Hugger, LLC is a member company of LSI Group, Inc. of Logansport, IN.

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.
