When an existing roof requires replacement, expense and inconvienence are often a concern. Often times, a better alternative is a new retro-fit framing system installed on the old roof. Retrofit roofing can usually be installed right over the existing roofing without tear-off.
Retrofit roofing can normally be done with little inconvienence, allowing operations to continue as usualy, with no exposure of the interior of the building. Retrofit also provides the opportunity for the building's owner to add additional insulation, improving energy efficiency and internal comfort. This system will satisfy current building code requirements, improve the overall performance of the facility, as well as correcting any problems of the current roof structure. Though retrofit roofing is not an available option for every roof type, those who can are often just as pleased with the results as they might be an entirely new roof.
