McElroy Metal has comprehensive solutions for retrofitting and recovering existing worn-out roofs.

For worn-out existing metal roofs, McElroy Metal’s frameless 238T Metal-Over-Metal Recover System is the industry’s best recover solution. McElroy’s 238T system can be installed over existing thru-fastened panels.

For worn out existing shingles, McElroy Metal’s 138T Shingle Recover System offers an economical and long-term solution. This system does not require sub-framing, tear-off of existing shingles or an underlayment, which saves installation expense. In addition, this recover system offers benefits like ease of installation, individual panel replaceability and longevity as well as a substantial reduction in annual utility expense due our special clip that enables Above Sheathing Ventilation (ASV), a continuous air space under the metal roofing. ASV has been proven to reduce utility expense!


For worn-out conventional flat roofing, McElroy Metal’s retrofit roofing systems consist of adding substructural components to the existing flat roof to build slope into the structure and provide a platform to install new metal roofing panels. Once complete, the new roof adds tremendous curb appeal, energy efficiency and a decades-long service life.
