Roof Recover Systems Utilizing Metal

Recently Roofers Coffee Shop recorded a podcast with our very own Charlie Smith talking about roof recover systems using metal. Listen to the specialist in the field talk about how you can add this technology to your product offering.

roofing-road-trip-with-charles-smith - Roof Recover Systems Utilizing MetalCharlie talks about using our 238T metal over metal recover system where the new roof is placed directly on top of the existing worn out metal roof.

He also discusses the need to recover an old shingle roof, and how our 138T shingle recover system offers the best long-term, and most cost-effective solution.

Charlie talks about overall metal roof recover benefits like:

  • easy to install, no need to remove the existing roof
  • increased crew safety during installation 
  • reduced installation labor costs
  • no downtime for the building occupants
  • long lasting metal roof system (50+ years)
  • ongoing energy savings by lowering utility costs
  • high wind uplift
  • impact resistance
  • water-tight roof
  • reduced waste sent to landfills
  • fire-resistant
  • low maintenance with ability to remove and repair one panel if necessary

We hope you enjoy the podcast with Charlie Smith and that you consider adding recover solutions from McElroy Metal to your product offering.
