Retro-Master™ Named 2014 Money-Saving Product

Buildings Magazine named the Retro-Master™ roofing system by Metal Sales a 2014 Money-Saving Product in the June issue. Retro-Master is a re-roof solution that provides every element needed to install a modern, code-compliant, energy-efficient, sloped metal roof over an old or failing roof. Elements include structural framing, subframing and Metal Sales™ roof panels. This retrofit system can be installed over any existing sloped or flat roof­­ and over any existing material such as metal, asphalt, built-up or membrane.

The system is installed without having to remove the existing roofing material, allowing businesses to continue operating during construction. As a result, Retro-Master is a convenient and cost-effective solution for business operators and building owners.

Retro-Master contains up to 30% recycled material and is available in several cool roof compliant colors. It allows for the installation of additional insulation to boost efficient energy performance and can easily incorporate PV panels and rainwater catchment systems for even more savings.

Finalists were evaluated by the Buildings editorial staff for the money-saving qualities they offer to building owners and facility managers in areas such as energy consumption, water savings, lighting, envelope improvement, and maintenance.
