Metal Roofing Retrofit and Recover Systems

Benefits of Retrofit & Recover Systems


Learn More About the Benefits of Metal Roofing

There are numerous benefits of having a metal roof on your commercial or industrial building—for example, they're aesthetically pleasing, environmentally friendly, weather-resistant, and energy-efficient. But, perhaps the most critical advantages metal roofing offers is durability and longevity!

Metal roofing has a longer lifespan than most other roofing materials and, oftentimes, the first metal roof you install will be your last. However, if a building's service life lasts for many decades, even a metal roof can wear out over time and need replacement. That’s why McElroy Metal offers several different comprehensive retrofit and recover solutions for old metal roofs. 

McElroy has also developed a recover solution for shingles. If you haven't made the upgrade to metal roofing yet and are tired  with the constant churn and replacement of asphalt shingles, we offer economical recover systems to help you experience the many benefits of metal roofing too.  Check out all of our recover options today!

Worn-Out Existing Metal Roofs

For worn-out existing metal roofs, McElroy Metal’s frameless 238T Metal-Over-Metal Recover System is the industry’s best recover solution. McElroy’s patented recover system is commonly utilized over existing thru-fastened panels. If the roof on your existing project doesn't have an exposed fastened roof system, no problem! Our recover experts can help create custom solutions over existing standing seam systems. Due to its frameless design, material and labor costs are greatly reduced—resulting in an installed price that is often competitive with single-ply roofing. This can help you or your business save on installation costs, as well as reduce utility costs over time.

But, competitive pricing isn't the only advantage this system offers. In many cases, panels can be manufactured on-site, allowing a single panel to run from eave to ridge. Panel laps are not only expensive to install but are also typically the weakest link in any roof system. So, avoiding them by going with a single piece panel from eave to ridge produces the best available roof system for your building.

Worn-Out Existing Shingles

For worn out existing shingles, McElroy Metal’s 138T Shingle Recover System offers a long-term, cost-effective solution. This system does not require sub-framing, tear-off of existing shingles, or an underlayment, saving you on material and installation expenses. In addition, this recover system offers benefits like ease of installation, individual metal panel replaceability, and longevity. Plus, you’ll experience a reduction in annual utility expenses due to the patented clip that enables Above Sheathing Ventilation (ASV), a continuous air space under the metal roofing.

Retrofit Roofing Systems

Be it for aesthetics or improved weather integrity, many building owners with flat roofs (less than 1/4:12” slope) chose to add a sloped metal roof to their existing building. McElroy Metal's Retrofit Roofing Systems consist of adding sub-structural components to the existing flat roof to build a slope into the structure and provide a platform to install new metal roofing panels. Once complete, your new metal roof will add tremendous curb appeal, become more energy-efficient, and have a decades-long service life. This can help attract customers to your business and help you save big on overhead expenses over time.
