Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs)

SIPS are high-performance building panels used in floors, walls, and roofs for residential and light commercial buildings. The panels are typically made by sandwiching a core of rigid foam plastic insulation between two structural skins of oriented strand board (OSB). SIPs are manufactured under factory-controlled conditions and can be custom designed for each home. The result is a building system that is extremely strong, energy efficient and cost effective. The cost of building with SIPs is about the same as wood frame construction when you factor in the labor savings resulting from shorter construction time and less job-site waste. Additional savings are realized because less expensive heating and cooling systems are required with SIP construction.
