The 238 T standing seam is a versatile metal roofing panel designed for commercial and industrial roofing applications. It can be used in new construction over open purlins or a solid deck but it can also be used in Re-roofing projects and in metal over metal recovers.
The 138 T is a mechanically seamed, standing seam metal roof panel that get its name because the “legs” or sides of the metal are 1 and 3/8 tall and the profile resembles a T.

The Rhinobond has become popular because of its value to building owners offering them the performance and longevity of traditional glue down roof but with all the cost savings of a screw down or mechanically attached roof.
The Rhinobond flat roofing system works by attaching the membrane to the same screw and plate that holds the roof insulation or cover board in place. Rhinobond does not use adhesives, which takes far fewer fasteners and is the fastest way to have a building dried-in and protected from the weather during a flat roof repairs / replace project. Here's what the process looks like:
1. How does a flat roof recovery work?
The basic idea behind a flat roof recover is to use a PVC membrane to cover over the existing flat roof. Our PVC roofing is used in new construction projects because of its over all strength and performance but it has been engineered to recover existing flat roofs and weighs only 1/4 per sq ft.

Targeted Use of Metal Roof Sealants and Metal Roof Coatings
Just because a metal roof starts to leak doesn't mean that the entire roof is bad or needs to be replaced. Many times leaks can be found and fixed using the correct metal roof sealant or by replacing screws or tape sealer. Metal roofs that were installed correctly and that still have service life remaining, fall into this category.
Tearing off a flat roof is a job now, and anybody that tells you different obviously hasn't done it. But your job here is ensure that the repair project moves along as smooth as possible staying on time and budget. Successful flat roof repair projects don't just happen, they’re planned and then the plan is executed correctly.
1. Does installing metal roofing over top of my existing metal roof add too much weight to the structure of the building ?
Just the opposite of what you might think, doing a metal over metal recover may actually add strength to your existing structure especially when using the roof hugger system. The roof huggers are structurally attached to the existing purling and designed in a way that stiffens the purling. That being said reputable metal roofing contractors will take advantage of the engineering services offered by roof hugger or the metal roofing manufactures and will have a recover system designed to your specific building’s needs.
Retrofitting old existing metal roofs with new standing seam metal roofing is quickly becoming one of the best metal roof repair options on the market. Not only does the new metal roofing stop leaks, the lay over or recovery system eliminates the need for a tear off saving the cost, mess, and building disruption of removing old metal and insulation.
