Roof Hugger Inc.

144-B Whitaker Road,
Lutz, FL 33549
Ph: 1 800 771 1711

The unique ROOF HUGGER was conceived and patented in the early ’90s.

Our experience dictated a need for a miniature “Z” section purlin that would “nest” into the existing profile and fasten directly through the pan into the structural system.

After eighteen months of trial and error sampling, ROOF HUGGER was born. Simple, one-piece, fast and easy to erect, the concept has been validated by its use on over 40 million square feet of retro-fit roofs to date over an area stretching from Guam and Hawaii in the Pacific, to the Caribbean Islands, Alaska and all points between.

AppliCad is working with Roof Hugger to develop an interactive roof system design solution, purpose built to the needs of the retro-fit roofing market. This project is well under way and already proving that accuracy can save money and reduce material waste.
