Roof Hugger Kicks Off Metal-Over-Metal Retrofit Roofing Spring 2020 Webinar Series On March 19

Odessa, FL - Roof Hugger, LLC announces the line-up for its Spring 2020 webinars on Metal-over-Metal retrofit roofing with Roof Hugger sub-framing systems. The first of six free webinars is Thursday, March 19, with others scheduled throughout March, April and May. All are 30-minute programs.

The webinars are designed to inform metal roofing contractors and design professionals of the correct way to install a new metal roof over an existing metal roof using Roof Hugger's structural sub-framing systems.

"Everyone knows that knowledge is power, and for the roofing contractor, design professional and facility manager/owner it can lead you to new horizons," says Roof Hugger's description of the webinars. "For the roofing contractor and design professional, it can help you expand your business and to participate in a very small market without a lot of competition. For the facility manager and building owner, it can provide you with an unwanted investment that will 'pay you back' and give you a 'long-term solution' to 'old problems'.

"Metal-over-Metal retrofit roofing is what Roof Hugger does. We are the leader in retrofit sub-framing systems for installing new metal roofs over existing metal roofs without removing the existing roof. We are talking about older metal roofs that have reached the end of their expected service life or have experienced a 'quick death' due to neighboring facilities, faulty installation or a multitude of other reasons. We have the experience with the most recognized tested structural sub-framing systems available anywhere and with nearly 100-million square feet of our products installed on metal roofs nationwide and abroad."
