Lindsay High School, Lindsay, Texas, needed new roofs over the 19,086-square-foot gymnasium and the 7,814-square-foot vocational building after major hailstorms in 2011 and 2012 caused severe cosmetic damage to the school’s existing metal roofs. The team opted to complete a metal-over-metal retrofit to save the school money.

Roofing Contractor D.K. Haney Construction Inc., Fort Worth, Texas, chose a 24-gauge EM200S standing-seam metal system in colonial red from Exceptional Metals. The roof was rollformed onsite in up to 60-foot lengths.

A retrofit sub-framing system from Roof Hugger Inc. allowed the existing roofs to remain in place.

Approximately 6,540 lineal feet of 4 1/2-inch-tall sub-purlins accommodate 6 inches of fiberglass insulation between the existing and new roofs. The sub-purlins were fitted for two different existing roof profiles—a 12-inch o.c. “R” Panel on the vocational building and a 24-inch-wide trapezoidal standing-seam roof on the gymnasium.

The project was completed in August 2012 without interruption to the school’s regular activities.
