Instead of tearing down an older and outdated building, one way to revitalize its appearance is by doing a metal wall panel retrofit. By adding metal wall panels to the exterior of a building envelope, an existing building can be completely reinvigorated and new life can be brought to both its appearance and the companies inside. – Metal Architecture
As David Rassmussen, business development at MG McGrath, Maplewood, Minn., adds that many commercial buildings constructed in the last 40 years feature wall assemblies with underperforming air barriers, drainage planes and insulation planes. “Metal wall panel technologies offer the possibility of improving the performance of these walls, while modernizing the appearance of their retrofitted façades,” he explains. – Metal Architecture
In our experience, the most immediate advantage of renovation versus demolition and/or new construction is that the building already exists, often resulting in a much more sustainable approach with reduced cost, time, energy and debris.
