Structural Insulated Panel Homes

Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) are, in our opinion, the premier choice for residential construction. The technology has been around for nearly 50 years but the popularity is steadily increasing. SIPs are made by joining high performance rigid foam insulation to oriented strand board (OSB) and are used as floors, walls and roofs. They are a structural composite, kind of like an "I"–beam. The skins act like flanges and the rigid core is similar to the web. In short, the three components work together, rather than against one another. This composite assembly yields stiffness, strength and predictable responses.

For quality, consistency, adaptability and virtually unsurpassed R-value (insulation) performance, we believe the SIP system gives the consumer the most value for their construction dollar. In addition, these panels are certified as a "green" building product resource.

Integrated truss panels make the R-41 insulation complete from top to bottom.

Panels are offered in various sizes with urethane foam for improved insulation and fire protection, sandwiched between two OSB skins for better strength. The 4 1/2" panel has an R-27 insulation value, while the 6 1/2" panel has an R-41 insulation value. For a quality home that boasts energy efficiency, versatility, soundness and comfort, we strongly recommend Structural Insulated Panels.
