This retrofit roofing product allows contractors to skip the step of tearing off the old roof. The Roof Hugger maintains a Z substructure shape and saves up to 70% of old roof preparation labor, company officials say. The system requires only standard tools and fasteners. The systems can be custom made to meet or exceed local code requirements. Company officials say the Roof Hugger system is lightweight and versatile.
