Structural Insulated Panels for New Home Construction
Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) join high-performance rigid foam insulation to Oriented Strand Board (OSB). The thickness of foam is adjusted to increase R-Value. The first SIP-type construction was made in 1935 and the buildings are still in use today, nearly 70 years later. A SIP home package includes pre-assembled panels, insulated headers along with window and door cutouts and horizontal and vertical electrical wire chases.
Using SIP roof panels, a home can have high vaulted ceilings. Ridge beams with EPS panels can eliminate trusses and open your vaulted great room with extremely high R-values and air-tight panel systems.
Enjoy custom, flexible designs
The engineered fabrication of structural insulated panels allows for flexible design and building options and can accommodate unique and complex home designs.
Enjoy reduced energy costs and overall lower cost of home ownership
Because the expanded polystyrene foam insulation is solid, SIPs are proven to be up to 15-times more air-tight and can reduce energy consumption by 50% or more. The savings over the life of your home mean you will have a lower cost of home ownership.
