Products: More than 130,000 square feet of CF36R insulated panels from Metl-Span in Lewisville, Texas, were utilized to reroof the eight-building middle school complex. The 2 ½-inch panels were finished in cool bright red and replaced a standing seam metal roof that was not performing properly.
Fine Points: The design team researched three options: removing the roof and installing decking with a new roof over it, using a single-ply membrane system with insulation over the existing roof, and removing the roof and installing an insulated metal panel system—after some consideration, the team determined that the insulated metal panel system was the best solution. Thermal insulation qualities and the speed and ease of installation contributed to the selection of the metal system.
