Home design has progressed. In the past, architects and designers had little say in the production of building materials. But now, designers, architects, and homeowners are more mindful of the effects their construction materials create. That is why insulated metal panels (IMPs) are gaining ground in the building industry. IMPs are cost-effective, sustainable, environment-friendly and capable of standing the test of time. So how do you best design a home using IMPs?
Consider The Style
Available in a variety of colors and profile shapes, IMPs are able to meet a wide range of varying design preferences. IMPs even boast a multitude of finishes resembling traditional construction materials, such as precast concrete, stucco, masonry and more. When designing your home, consider how you want the facade to look, and how you can integrate metal panels into that facade.
Consider Insulation Requirements
When it comes to home design using insulated metal panels, you may also want to mix in some single skin metal panels for aesthetic purposes. This gives you greater control over where insulation is needed, and avoids spending money on IMPs where a single skin may be more suitable.
The facings of IMPs already function as finished surfaces, while at the same time, provide air, weather, thermal and vapor protection for exterior walls. They also require far less load bearing than traditional building materials. Meaning when you design your home using IMPs, you can design an open floor plan that needs far less materials.
More Than Just A Wall
Insulated metal panels can be used as exterior cladding, roofing, and even flooring! Meaning all these areas of your home or building can be constructed quickly and more efficiently than traditional building materials. IMPs can even be designed with the ability for utilities to run through them, meaning no drilling!
