Roof Hugger is the recognized leading provider of solutions for re-roofing applications. “While our core business has always been metal roofing and wall systems for new construction, the retrofit market is quite significant to us,” says Blake Batkoff, national accounts/marketing manager. “This strategic partnership with Roof Hugger allows us to expand our product offerings by providing high performance “metal over metal” systems to our customers.”
The patented Roof Hugger sub-framing system offers notched sub-purlins designed to retrofit over existing metal and conventional roofs. The system can satisfy new building code design loads for upgrading to current gravity and wind uplift requirements.
“Given Petersen’s expertise and reputation in the architectural metal construction market, we expect this relationship to yield an increase in retrofit roofing systems on projects seeking aesthetic and energy-efficient upgrades,” says Mark James, Roof Hugger vice president of sales & marketing.
