Structural Insulated Panels
SIPs are high-performance building panels for floors,walls and roofs in residential and commercial buildings. Each panel is typically made using expanded polystyrene (EPS), or polyisocyanurate rigid foam insulation sandwiched between two structural skins of oriented strand board (OSB), designed, fabricated and cut to meet your custom building specifications. Building with sips prevents any moisture or bacteria from collecting in the walls. The closed-cell structure of the EPS foam core, when combined with a properly designed and installed Heat Recovery Ventilator Unit can help prevent "sick house syndrome" and create an allergy-free environment for your family.
SIP buildings are energy-efficient, quiet, comfortable, clean and resistant to insect infestation and other allergens. Building with SIPs can result in a lower mortgage rate on the house as well as a higher resale value. Structural Insulated Panels cost more than other building materials, but SIPs labor costs are much cheaper, resulting in an overall construction cost that is only slightly higher than stick-framing.The result is a building
system that is very strong, comfortable, energy efficient and cost effective.
