MBMI Steel Buildings Uses Innovative Roof Replacement Method

US-based building and delivery company in the area of steel construction, MBMI Steel Buildings has used an innovative roof replacement method. The company recently completed a roof replacement at the Marina Building located in Lindenhurst, New York.

The replacement work was completed using the latest retrofit metal roof framing system within a period of ten days with an average of three men working on the project every day.

The new roof that was replaced was lighter in weight and was more effective and at the same time simple. The total weight of the roof including the screws, huggers, trims and gutters was only 1.2 lbs. The new system helps in reducing the amount of labour involved in preparing the old roof. This in turn minimises costs arising from removal of the old roof, interruption in business and the impact of weather damages. The system requires only standard tools and fasteners and can be fixed by anyone based on the instructions provided. The pilot holes that are already punched help in the new roof fixing itself to the existing roofing structure. Due to this factor the integrity of the old roof is also retained.

The new system has been tested in the laboratory. Though it bonds with the old roofing, it also provides an ideal space between the old roof and the new roof thus allowing for insulation, integrated solar thermal water heating system and solar heat recovery. Due to these features the roofing is highly energy efficient and the benefits of the roofing system can be seen right after installation.
