If you are someone that runs a construction company, there is a good chance that you have heard about thermal wall panels, or panels that are insulated before they are even used. These panels are interesting because they can change the flow of construction and tend to cost more than standard panels. You might be considering incorporating them into your workflow. Here are some questions that you should ask yourself when deciding whether to use thermal wall panels.
1. Do you find yourself needing to build quickly?
It's no secret that thermal wall panels tend to be more expensive than traditional wall panels. This can be harmful to your budget because it can be more difficult for you to bid for jobs successfully since you will have to charge your clients more for materials. However, if speed is your number one concern and the number one concern of the client to whom you are bidding, then you might want to consider using these panels and advertising that you do so. The reason for this is that thermal wall panels can dramatically shorten the amount of time that construction takes. This can be good if you are starting a construction project later in the year or if your client needs something immediately and is willing to pay the extra money for the panels. If speed is not important, then thermal wall panels might not be right for you.
2. Are you frequently placing bids for contracts with clients who care a lot about the environment?
If you regularly find yourself placing bids on contracts with clients who want to minimize the carbon footprint of their building in order to ensure that they need the fewest carbon tax vouchers possible, then you might want to use thermal wall panels. These panels are airtight and provide a superior level of insulation compared to traditional insulating measures that are applied to panels after the fact. This will help your client save money because he or she will not have to spend as much on heating, as well as reduce his or her environmental impact. If you are not working with clients who care a lot about the environment, then you should consider not using these panels and using traditional panels instead.
