Problem: Flat roofs can sometimes become problematic and unsightly with rooftop units, mechanical equipment and pooling water.
Solution: Berridge Vantage Point Retrofit Roof System provides a totally new design appearance, hides unsightly mechanical equipment and offers watertight integrity.
Berridge Vantage Point reroofing system combines a new aesthetic look with a simple mechanical attachment over existing flat, built-up roofs that will last for years to come. Vantage Point is more than just a patch-up or a re-roof solution; it is a permanent new roof with a new higher profile which gives your old building a totally new look. The sloped, light-weight, self-supporting metal panels do not need substrate, thus avoiding extra weight and cost. They provide a watertight standing seam that sheds water in contrast to dated, flat, built-up roofs which are subject to water pooling and subsequent leakage. Added insulation may be placed on the existing flat roof.
Economical Installation — No Tear-Off Required!
High-Quality Structural/ Architectural Panels
The Berridge Zee-Lock, Double-Lock Zee-Lock, Cee-Lock and Tee-Lock architectural/structural standing seam roof systems provide superior aesthetic appearance and excellent performance options. (Pictured in order above.)
The installer orders all necessary coil material, components and all pre-cut retrofit roof system framing members from Berridge.
- Standard material is 24-Gauge & 16-Gauge, Galvalume®
- 24-Gauge material may be mixed colors, painted/unpainted, secondary/prime
- Insulation: The space between the old and new roof allows for low-cost, blanket insulation to greatly reduce heating and cooling costs.
- Vapor Barrier (if required): A vinyl vapor barrier on the underside of the blanket insulation avoids condensation from the building penetrating the insulation and reaching the framing system and roof panels.
- Mechanical Equipment: Any existing and new mechanical equipment should be located at ground level to reduce penetrations.
- Ventilation: The new attic space should be vented with ridge vents or louvers.
- Thermal Movement: Accommodated at the eaves and with inner-rib expansion joints.
- Roof Design: Low slope to steep mansard profile. Intersecting planes such as hips, dormers and valleys should be kept to a minimum.
- Penetrations: Minimize penetrations such as skylights, curbs for roof-mounted heating or air-conditioning units, etc.
