McElroy Metal’s 138T Shingle Recover System provides a long-term and economical solution for commercial building owners and homeowners in need of a new roof.
This innovative system installs directly over existing shingles, and the patented clips create an energy-saving Above Sheathing Ventilation (ASV) airspace between the existing roof and the new 138T roof.
Up until now, the common method to provide ASV was to install a series of vertical and horizontal framing members, which greatly increased material and labor expenses. The 138T Shingle Recover clip eliminates all framing and allows unencumbered airflow in all directions.
As long as the existing deck is in good shape, there is no need for the added expense and hassle of removing and disposing of the existing shingles (check with your local code authority to determine if one or two layers of shingles are allowable for recover). Also, there is no need for the added expense of underlayment with the 138T Shingle Recover System.
Although this recover system was designed for retrofit applications, it is equally suitable for new construction over solid decking. For this application, underlayment would be required.
