Metal Retro-Fit Roofing Systems
Our roofing system has 95% emissivity, which means it is 95% effective in emitting energy from thermal radiation. Compare this to your typical metal roofing which is a conductor of heat. What this means is our roofing system will save you approximately 40% in energy savings based on the emissivity rating of the roof and the increased R value.
(R Value = the capacity of an insulating material to resist heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power)
How the Treo-fit System Works:
Step 1: The metal retro-fit roofing system is applied right over your existing metal deck. No tear off required.
Step 2: Insulation is cut and placed to fill the flutes.
Step 3: Another layer of insulation is added to ensure a flat surface and increase the R value.
Step 4: The prefabricated membrane is mechanically-fastened to the deck over the insulation.
Step 5: Prefabricated flashings for stacks and other penetrations are heat-welded on-site to create a monolithic covering and assure a leak-proof seal.
