  • Roof Over/Roof Hugger Systems

    We have a retrofit warehouse facility where we initially applied an elastomeric coating which has been a disappointment and we will probably look to move forward with a roof hugger type system for our pitched metal roof. We priced a local company a couple years back that would use Butler's product, was curious if anyone had recommendations on which line to use and if anyone has experience with this and could provide any other advice? Also do you stick to the local metal building contractors or are there regional storage companies that could be competitive as well? Also what's typical price/SF of roof?


    Appreciate it!

    I would think the rubber would just bake in the sun no? I would go with a roof over definitely go with a proper roof over system. I am in Canada so i cant input as to a contractor, but i would use someone who does these systems all the time, not a storage specific contractor.

    Also, if its a heated building, insulate while your putting the new roof on!

        Appreciate the info, we are bidding and someone mentioned a membrane roof that can be applied over metal? On a pitched roof I can't imagine that looks too good, especially after years in the weather and repairs?

          Anyone have experience with Butler as opposed to other Metal Roof options? Looking a the Butler MR-24 system.

          Any input on warranties and if terms are negotiable with contractor or Butler and if so whats the best you have gotten as far as length of warranty and did it cover essential items like flashing, ridge etc?

            I would look into putting a conkle roof or there's a roof coating that Sherwin Williams has that comes with a 50 year warrenty. it's a commercial grade type of rubber you roll on with a paint roller. not sure what the name is.

              Appreciate it......unfortunately we did the elastomeric coating twice. It didn't prevent leaks so the contractor came back and applied it again at no cost and it still didn't do it.

                Thank you all. It's going to be a battle, but I'm ready for the challenge. I'm sitting close to 90% occupancy so I'm in decent shape right out of the gate. It's just going to take some time to get the books in order and the tenants back on a shorter leash.

                Our lease requires that each tenant have some sort of insurance. Renters, Homeowners, or Business & if it covers self storage facilities and they want to use it & put in on file, great. Send us a copy of the Declarations Page or some sort of proof.
