Metal Retrofit Roofing Systems

We offer metal retrofit roofing systems for flat-to-steep slope retrofits, metal-over-metal, and metal-over-shingle retrofits. All of our metal retrofit roofing systems offer building owners a cost-effective solution for replacing a worn-out roof.

Metal Retrofit Roofing Systems

138T Shingle Recover – This retrofit system can be installed directly over existing shingles which eliminates the need to tear off and remove the existing shingles.

238T Metal-Over-Metal Recover – This is an ideal solution for metal-over-metal recovers and is proven to last two to four times longer than a single-ply recover system.

Low Slope to Steep Slope – This retrofit system allows building owners to convert their existing, worn-out flat roof into a long-lasting, steep metal roof.

138T Shingle Recover

138 T shingle metal retrofit roofing systemThe 138T shingle recover system allows building owners to get all of the benefits of metal roofing while saving labor and material costs associated with tearing off and disposing of your existing shingles.

In most cases, the existing shingles can be left on the building, and the recover system can be installed directly over them.

The 138T also features a patented clip system that creates an above sheathing ventilation airspace that increases energy efficiency and lowers utility expenses.

Check out an example of a recover project that used the 138T shingle recover system.


238T Metal-Over-Metal Recover

238t metal over metal retrofit roofing  systemThe 238T metal-over-metal recover system is a low-cost recover solution for buildings that already have an existing exposed fastened R-Panel roofing system. This system utilizes McElroy's easily repairable symmetrical 238T standing seam panel, making it easy to repair and replace any panel that might get damaged.

The 238T will also last two to four times as long as a single-ply recover system at a cost that is less than a remove and replace solution.

Check out an example of a recover project that used the 238T metal-over-metal recover system.
