Retrofitting Roofs With Metal Roofing Systems

MBCI Retrofitting Roofs with Metal

By Anna Lockhart.  

The roofing experts at MBCI share how to successfully retrofit existing roofs with metal roofing systems.  

For home and building owners considering the different options for their roofing project, it is reasonable that they consider retrofitting the existing roof with metal since this is a viable and cost-effective option. By installing a retrofit metal roofing system, they are able to not only save the existing roof but also financially benefit from saving on additional labor costs than if they chose to completely restart with a new installation altogether.  

Retrofitting with metal can be done to just about any roof without altering any existing rooftop equipment or ventilations, allowing for a simple installation process and lower labor time and costs. Choosing metal roofing materials can also allow for a new roof shape that didn’t exist originally with the existing roof materials. If a structure has an existing flat roof, it is possible to retrofit with light-gauge steel framing systems that create a newly sloped roof shape. Likewise, a newer, longer-lasting standing seam roofing system made from metal materials can be placed directly over an older existing roof, which is a great option for roof slopes of 3:12 or more.  

Retrofitting an existing roof with metal roofing materials is not only economically beneficial, but also provides more durability and functionality. Metal roofing can elevate the aesthetics of an older structure and give it a completely new life that will last decades. Metal is a great choice, too, for those looking to be more energy efficient as metal roofing can actually help reduce cooling costs during warm summer months and will reduce heat loss during colder months.
