When IMPs first emerged as a building product in the 1960s they were predominantly used as an exterior wall assembly. Throughout the last 60 years, the materials and production methods have advanced considerably. According to the Metal Construction Association, “Insulated Metal Panel Roofs are premier building products on the leading edge of innovation.” The far reaching benefits include: high performance, sustainable building envelope, design flexibility, single component, and speed of build. The question isn’t “why an IMP roof” … the question is “why not.”
Join METALCONLive! and MCA TOMORROW as they present, The Advantages of an IMP Roof , by Greg Lusty, Vice President of Sales at All Weather Insulated Panels. Greg will provide a review of insulated metal roof panel systems in terms of their performance characteristics, profiles, and testing/approval requirements; along with the design and installation considerations that will help you be successful.

Increase Credibility with Clients with a Roofing Certification
Our friends with MBCI shared in a blog post, “Just because you’ve been installing roofing for 30 years, doesn’t mean installer training and certification isn’t necessary. From a bottom line perspective, it’s important for companies to be proactive in making sure there is always someone on their team who is a certified installer for the products they use—or might use.”
With the knowledge that comes with certification, you’ll be able to assist contractors and consumers alike in choosing the right metal roof for their needs. Being a certified provider, homeowners, design professionals and contractors will be able to clearly differentiate quality levels of steep slope metal roofing by applying industry performance standards.Continue reading
