Englert Inc. has announced plans to market and
sell retrofit framing systems from Roof Hugger Inc., providing customers and
prospects with fully-engineered re-roof framing systems to replace aging, leaky
metal over metal roof systems too expensive to maintain.
Roof Hugger’s patented, pre-notched systems and their Eco-Fit energy efficient
re-roofing systems work well with integrated metal roof systems that
incorporate Englert’s UltraCool standing seam panels, its solar BIPV laminates
and solar thermal systems that qualify for federal renewable energy tax
incentives. Depending on where the project is located, a multitude of State and
Local loan guarantees/funding, grants, renewable energy bonds and tax programs
are also available.
“In these challenging economic times, architects and developers are realizing
that a Roof Hugger retrofit system and a standing seam roof are cost effective
solutions to nagging roof problems,” noted Tom Dyszkiewicz, senior vice
president of business development at Englert. “Installing both can eliminate
the need to remove old roofing materials at a high cost, eliminate any business
interruption that can cut into profits, save up to 70 percent of the labor cost
for preparation of an old roof and reduce dependency on fossil fuels and other
direct energy sources while qualifying for a 30 percent federal tax credit.
Meanwhile, our contractors can expand into a new area of business, installing
fully engineered re-roof framing systems that can meet all required slopes,
eliminating roof leaks. This is a win-win solution for everyone and we look
forward to working with Roof Hugger in meeting our customers’
Englert sales and architectural representatives will provide architects and
contractors with the guidelines necessary to design and install Roof Hugger
