Structural Insulated Panels (SIP)
When looking to build a home, today’s homeowners have a number of construction methods available to them. The home design and construction style you choose is dependent on many factors including, but not limited to location, cost and time-frame. One building method to consider is SIP home construction.
A Structural Insulated Panel, or SIP, is a building component used in walls, floors and even roofs. As a one-piece, solid structural material, SIP incorporates framing, insulation and sheathing in a single component consisting of two outer layers and an inner core of insulating material. The resulting material is one, solid unit.
When the component pieces of a SIP are pressure-laminated together, the composite material produced is much stronger than each of the components when used separately. SIP home construction, therefore, offers the following advantages over some other methods of home construction:
- Superior strength;
- Better insulation;
- Shorter build time;
- Environmentally friendly process.
A structure built with SIPs does not require a frame or skeleton, as does traditional home construction.
