Get the Most Accurate Metal Roof Retrofit Framing Estimate

Roof Hugger Retrofit Framing Estimate
March 12, 2022 at 6:00 a.m.

By Evelyn Witterholt, RCS Reporter. 

Understand more of what goes into a metal-over-metal retrofit estimation with this handy video! 

When an older metal roof needs replacing, Roof Hugger’s metal-over-metal retrofit systems are a great option. These sustainable sub-purlins make it so that the existing metal roof can stay put and any manufacturer’s new metal roof can be installed right on top of it. Your clients can save time and money by using the Roof Hugger, but just how much can they save? 

Roof Hugger now has this useful video where Founder Dale Nelson breaks down exactly what goes into getting an estimate and how to get the most accurate pricing possible. This 10-minute presentation gives you all the information you need to understand their estimation process.  

Dale does suggest familiarizing yourself with the Roof Hugger system before requesting a quote. Knowing how a Roof Hugger works and how to install it on a metal roof can help you get a more thorough estimate. Information about how their products are designed and installed can be found here. 

In the presentation, Dale gives a comprehensive breakdown of how they price their retrofitting systems and what factors affect the overall estimate. For example, he highlights how Roof Huggers are sold by the lineal foot, not the square foot.  

Dale also teaches you about the two ways Roof Hugger produces their estimates: Component parts pricing, using the job information form and preliminary load design pricing, using the project questionnaire. More details on these types of quotes, where to find the proper forms and how to fill them out correctly can be found in the video. 

You can also learn about what not to do when requesting an estimate. You don’t want to make the mistake of guessing your roof measurements. Errors like these and others outlined in the video can lead to a less accurate estimate.
