Custom SIPs Homes
(Structural Insulated Panels)
In a SIP (Structural Insulated Panels) panel home, the framer "installs" the panel sections rather than "builds" them. This saves time and ensures the walls are straight and plumb. SIPs can positively impact many stages of the building process and help stay the project stay on schedule. Below are a few reasons a SIP panel home might be right for you:
- The insulation is already incorporated into our SIP panels.
- The electrical chases are factory installed in the foam, eliminating the time and labor expense associated with on-site drilling.
- SIPs walls are flat and plumb, so the drywall contractor completes his work faster with a better final finish. The interior finishes including cabinetry, moldings, etc., will be installed more easily due to the continuous attachment surface provided by the OSB. No more searching for studs.
- A great advantage of building with SIP panels stems from the factory precision they're made with. This precision enables the home to be very tight, which reduces the size of heating and air conditioning units (HVAC) by up to 20%, providing immediate savings. Over the years, SIPs can also signigicantly lower energy costs.
