Green construction and sustainability make both financial and environmental sense. Eco-conscious homeowners know this. Among the top design trends for 2019 is metal construction. From metal roofing to insulated metal panels, metal can save you money while providing an eco-friendly alternative to more traditional construction methods and materials.
Why Insulated Metal Panels?
Why insulate your home or building at all? You want a wall with high thermal performance. Metal construction can minimize air infiltration and leakage while minimizing condensation. Insulated Metal Panels (or IMPS) are used for residential, commercial, and industrial buildings. They can be used in both new construction and retrofit construction.
Green Construction Applications
Using sustainable construction like metal panels and roofing can be used in a wide variety of projects:
- Schools and Universities
- Office Buildings
- Manufacturing Facilities
- Distribution Warehouses
- Aircraft Hangers
- Maintenance Buildings
- Correctional Facilities
IMPs have numerous benefits in both roofing and wall construction. They are all-in-one factory-insulated panels. Light and easy to install, IMPs can be installed quickly and efficiently year-round. Because there are minimal installation steps, there is little risk to system integrity. They are also fire-resistant.
Another hot trend is using materials that have been made of recycled content. For example, metal roofing and IMPs both can be recycled and are often made of recycled materials. Even the foam core of IMPs has some recycled consumer content. Metal roofs can be almost entirely reused and recycled for other projects.
What is cool roofing? Minimize heat costs with metal roof panels. These roofs keep your home cooler because they reflect sunlight, especially with special white coatings. The roof radiates solar heat away from your home or building.
Choose IMPs or metal roofing to protect your home and assets, increase energy efficiency, and significantly help the environment. Eco-friendly and affordable, choose metal. Call us today about how we can help you with your latest construction project.
