A Big Roof Hugger Project and One that Escaped Hurricane Michael’s Wrath


By Roof Hugger.

We can say this, compared to our standard order quantity, anytime we get an order for over 50,000 lineal feet of our famous Huggers, it is a HUGE project.

Earlier this month, our David Hall (on the left in the photo), out of our Florida Office received an order for 78,400 lineal feet of our Model “T” Huggers. We estimate that this is over 350,000 square foot of existing metal roof.

The project that is in central Iowa, was hit by a recent tornado.  In cases like these, we like to “Shine” and help a friend out as much as possible.  So, in this case because we had the inventory on the racks, we shipped the order in 5 days from receipt of the contract.  The Huggers shipped from our warehouse in Peru, Indiana.

A Hugger Project that Escaped Hurricane Michael’s Wrath

Excerpt from our most recent Case Study Project:  The existing building was a metal building constructed some years ago that needed a new metal roof. In lieu of removing the existing metal roof and replacing, the Base Facility Construction department elected a metal-over-metal retrofit where a new metal roof is installed over new structural sub-framing that attaches directly to the existing roof’s support system, without removing the existing metal roof. While doing this, the Base knew that it was possible to engineer the new retrofit system to be in accordance to current wind uplift design for the area. In this case, the system was designed to meet a Category V hurricane of 157 MPH wind speed. With the recent catastrophic Hurricane Michael damage at nearby Tyndall Air Force Base and elsewhere on the Florida Panhandle, this project just 82 miles away suffered no damage, even with Michael’s documented peak wind speed of 155 MPH.
