Select Inn, Murfreesboro, Tenn.

Integrated Roof Solutions Inc. installed 4,000 feet of Roof Hugger's Model C sub-purlins for 12-inch on-center ribbed metal roofs on Select Inn. Pacific Blue was selected as the color for the factoryformed, 16-inch-wide by 2-inch-tall metal roof with a 180-degree mechanically locked seam and materials were shipped to the job site in three business days from receipt of the order. The 10,000-square-foot project was completed in 10 days from the start of sub-framing installation.

Greg O'Brien, president of Integrated Roof Solutions, recommended using the retrofit sub-framing system manufactured by Roof Hugger. O'Brien said he'd seen Roof Hugger products at trade shows but his company had not had a project scenario in which they would work. "The Select Inn project was exactly the right fit for a Roof Hugger application, as a cost saver, substrate stabilizer, limited operational interference and time saver," he says.

The hotel's existing exposed fastened R-Panel roof was in need of replacement after servicing the building for more than 30 years. Crews began installing Roof Hugger's factory-notched sub-purlins and Union Corrugating Co.'s 24-gauge ML200 standing seam system after relocating the existing rooftop HVAC units for better serviceability and to accomplish a penetration-free roof.

Metal roof retrofit and re-roofing is approximately 80 percent of Integrated Roof Solutions' business and O'Brien says Roof Hugger's team should be praised for its technical support and quick turnaround. "Roof Hugger was chosen as a cost saver when compared to removing the existing R-Panel and as a measure so as not to disrupt an operational hotel and restaurant business," he says.
