Beginning with fabrication of custom Hugger sub-purlins that are made using sophisticated punching, shearing and press-braking equipment to allow our systems to match virtually any existing metal roof profile/configuration, regardless whether thru-fastened or standing seam.
This is true no matter what the existing rib spacing is or what the required height is to accommodate varying thickness of insulation.
For our more common profiles, we roll-form several Hugger sub-purlins allowing us to keep inventory in our four locations in Florida, Texas, Indiana and Washington.
Not shown in the video, is our special hat-channel systems that assist with new metal roof systems that do not have required uplift testing over our systems or those projects that are required to meet extreme wind speeds.
Shown near the end of the video are some roofs that illustrate high wind load requirements in the corners, eave and rake locations of the existing roof. This additional framing is based on the ASTM testing of the new metal roof systems that is selected to be installed over our Hugger sub-purlins.
Roof Hugger’s metal-over-metal retrofit systems are the ideal application when an old outdated metal roof needs to be replaced. This environmentally friendly option allows the existing metal roof to remain, the new metal roof installed directly over the old roof providing a safe and labor-saving installation.

The Roof Hugger System can fit any existing metal panel, support any new roof panel and be configured to add insulation and solar energy equipment. THE ROOF HUGGER SYSTEM ADVANTAGES:
Roof Hugger provides the industry’s most effective way
of installing a metal over metal retro-fit roof, with Roof
Hugger Sub-Purlin Systems. The Roof Hugger Systems
can fit ANY existing metal panel, support ANY new roof
panel and be configured to add insulation and solar
energy equipment between the old and new roofs.
Roof Huggers allow you to install 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,
is environmentally friendly, cooler in summer,
warmer in winter and conserves energy.

Created for new metal roof panels that have not been tested over Roof Hugger sub-framing systems.
We recently released two new details ZF-05 and ZF-06 for special hat channel framing at high wind uplift Zones 2 and 3 at roof corners and edges (eave, ridge, and gables).
This type of framing is used only when the new metal roof panel system has not been laboratory ASTM E1592 tested over Roof Hugger sub-framing.
In some cases, this type of framing may also be utilized for extremely high wind speed, code required, locations.
Also, please note that Roof Hugger manufactures its own hat channels and sub-rafter framing shown in these details.
