WHERE ARE RETROFIT METAL SYSTEMS USED?
Existing Sloped Roofs:
Older conventional roofing materials that were used in years past may very well need replacement now. Normally considered less than a 2-inch rise for every 12-inches horizontal, or commonly referred to as 2:12 pitch, these retrofit system roofs are typically very functional and utilitarian in design. If the existing roof has an aging metal roof, MCA member products offer fully-engineered sub-framing systems that in most cases allow the existing roof to remain in place by installing the new metal roofing directly over the old roof. These applications can provide additional benefits in energy efficiency with the addition of insulation and/or dynamic ventilation to the space between the old roof and underside of the new metal roof. In addition, the new roof system is designed to the most current and governing wind and gravity load code requirements.
