Archetto Construction, Inc. Makes it Look Easy

Roof Hugger Archetto Construction
June 11, 2022 at 3:00 p.m.

By Roof Hugger.  

Roof Hugger helps complete roof install in under a month. 

Location: Millville, New Jersey  

Square footage: 40,500  

Old roof: 26 GA PBR with 1:12 Roof Pitch 

Archetto Construction, Inc. of Vineland, New Jersey completed the project in March 2011.  A new 24 GA Star Buildings Standing Seam roof system was installed over the existing roof, supported by standard Roof Hugger Model “C” factory‐notched sub‐purlins.   

Due to its proximity to coastal areas, the sub‐framing included additional reinforcement components at the roof’s corners and low‐eave/rake edge zones to resist the area wind forces, which allowed the Star roof system to locate panel clips between the existing purlins.  A total of 8,720 lineal feet of Huggers were installed.   

Two‐inches of unfaced insulation was installed between the old and new roofs to increase the thermal resistance of the building’s older roof.  The job was started early in February and was completed in about one month.     

Brian Rehm of Archetto stated:  

“Overall, the owner and ourselves are happy with the install.  We also found as a Star Building’s dealer that we didn’t have to recreate the wheel when it came to providing design data for our new roof system, because there was an existing relationship between Star and Roof Hugger.  This expedited the process.”

About Roof Hugger 

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. 

This is true no matter what the existing rib spacing is or what the required height is to accommodate varying thickness of insulation. 

Roof Hugger’s metal-over-metal retrofit systems are the ideal application when an old outdated metal roof needs to be replaced.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 with little or no disruption to the customers’ business.
