It is not always feasible or practical to build a new facility when your existing building begins to show its age and isn't as efficient as you'd like it to be. 

Retro-fit solutions allow you to experience the benefits a of a new building, without having to buy one.

Some of the benefits of employing a retro-fit solution are:

  • Increased building value
  • Increased curb appeal
  • Lower utility costs
  • Lower maintenance costs
  • Improved & expanded operational space

Retro-fit roofing of "Re-roof" is one of the most frequently utilized retro-fit solutions. 

Most re-roof applications fall into two categories: Metal-Over-Metal & Slope-Build-Up


Engineered metal-over-metal re-roof solutions are used to retro-fit existing though fasteners, rib type roofs or high profile standing seam roofs. The system is applied over existing roof panels and provides an opportunity to gain high insulation values, thereby improving thermal efficiency and reducing utility costs. Metal-over-metal provides a method to replace and upgrade an existing metal roof without disrupting ongoing operations inside the building.

Slope Build-Up

Engineered slope build-up re-roof solutions are designed to be installed over a flat built up or membrane roof having a substrate of steel or wood. By adding a slope to an existing flat or low profile sloped roof, ponding water and leaks are eliminated extending the life of the building.  As with the metal-over-metal system, additional insulation can be installed to increase energy efficiency and the entire system can be installed without business interruption.
