Providing metal-over-metal retrofit solutions for over 30 years!

Roof Hugger is a unique company that focuses on the efforts and improvement of retrofiting an existing metal roof with a new metal roof.  Learn more about Roof Hugger in our ABOUT US page.

We support our Contractors out in the field.

We want to give our contractors the tools they need to go out into the field and provide a quality product and service to their customers.

Our products save time and money.

Our retrofit system is efficient and cost effective. There is no need to remove the existing roof saving time and money on materials and labor.

Simply put, it is the installation of a new long life metal roof over an existing metal roof in a way that is structurally correct, non-disruptive and cost effective. It is a system that adds strength, is environmentally friendly, cooler in summer, warmer in winter and conserves energy.

ROOF HUGGER provides the industry’s most effective way of doing this with ROOF HUGGER SUB-PURLIN SYSTEMS. The Roof Hugger Systems can fit ANY existing metal panel, support ANY new roof panel and be configured to add insulation and solar energy equipment between the old and new roofs.

You can purchase our systems direct through us, just click the “Request A Quote” button at the top or if you prefer a turnkey price, you can contact one of our licensed resellers for a package price on the Roof Hugger Framing System, the new metal roof panels and accessories, and labor to install it all.

Roof Hugger warrants its products to be free from defects in material, workmanship, or fabrication on the shipment date. If any product is not as warranted, Roof Hugger, at its option, will refund the purchase price or will repair within one (1) year from shipment date. You can get a PDF copy in our Downloads section.


Roof Hugger’s metal-over-metal retrofit systems are the ideal application when an old outdated metal roof needs to be replaced. This environmentally friendly option allows the existing metal roof to remain, the new metal roof installed directly over the old roof providing a safe and labor-saving installation.

This latest Roof Hugger video showcases the process of our Roof Hugger systems from fabrication to the roof top and everything in between. Beginning with fabrication of custom Hugger sub-purlins that are made using sophisticated punching, shearing and press-braking equipment to allow our systems to match virtually any existing metal roof profile/configuration, regardless whether thru-fastened or standing seam.


Folks from Roof Hugger and BPD had a chance to talk to Roofers Coffee Shop about Metal Roof Retrofit Systems and Standing Seam Metal Roof Clips.
