The History and Future of Metal Retrofit Roofing

Metal retrofit roofing started in the 1970’s and is continuing strong in 2022. From metal-over-metal to converting a flat roof to a pitched metal roof, the demand from a continually growing inventory of aging sloped and flat roofs has provided an ample supply of opportunities for contractors, manufacturers, engineers, architects and roof consultants to satisfy that demand. This session will explore the history of metal retrofit roofing through the bright future it has today. Metal roofs have the lowest life cycle cost, lasting well over 60 years, if properly designed and installed. The true value of a new metal retrofit roof over an old metal or flat roof continues to grow for the building owners. Currently there are exceptional growth opportunities in this market with limited specifying and contracting competition. Learn from the past success in this market and help it grow into the future.
