CFR Retro-Seam Reroofing System

Metl-Span’s CFR Retro-Seam insulated metal standing seam roof panel featuring Roof Hugger’s® sub-purlin system combines the technical innovation and product reliability for which we’re known and more critically, provides a long-term, cost effective and energy efficient solution to your roofing challenge.Retro-Seam is a light-gauge structural member, notched to span over the original roof’s ribs or corrugation, which is positioned directly over the building’s framing system. The member is attached to the roof purlins through the bottom flange of the structural member and the existing roof sheet. The new insulated metal standing seam roof is then attached to the new member.
