A retired architect specified multiple metal panels to renovate and transform a private residence in Wormleysburg, Pa. Four profiles in two colors were used to re-skin the house, garage and a bridge between them. The bridge/breezeway overlooks the Susquehanna River.

Three of the panels were aluminum and one was metal composite material (MCM). M. Potteiger Inc. mitered all the corners on the job site.

Dave Bieber, president at M. Potteiger, says exposed fasteners were kept to a minimum and continuous panels were used as often as possible. “This combination made the installation of this system very precise and tedious,” he says.

M. Potteiger installed 6,919 total square feet of 0.04-inch and 0.032-inch aluminum wall panels. The aluminum panels were ATAS International Inc.’s corrugated panels in Silversmith, Metafor ribbed panels in Clear Satin Anodized and Opaline flush panels in Clear Satin Anodized. M. Potteiger also installed 1,300 square feet of ATAS International’s SterraCore MCM panels in Clear Satin Anodized. The project was completed in 2016.
