Sips create a building system that is extremely strong, energy effective, and cost effective Building with SIPs traditionally costs the same as building with a wood frame, but cost savings come from the labour. Construction times are shorter due to the smaller heating and cooling systems required by SIPs.
Sips are manufactured in factory controlled conditions. SIPs reduce on site construction time. A SIP home can be closed up in just one day.
Structural Insulated Panels are stronger than traditional framing. They have high wind resistance, and they have been tested at 275+ km/hr with no damage. High earthquake resistance. They have been tested at 11.5 on the Richter scale with no damage
SIP Homes are a better sealed building envelope and resistant to mold. Uses up to 35% less raw lumber along with greatly reduced construction site waste. SIP construction reduces energy usage from 50% up to 70%, and it earns the U.S. government’s coveted “Energy Star” designation.
