Designing and constructing with structural insulated panels (SIPS) can create a tight, energy-efficient building envelope. As with other high performance wall and roof assemblies, managing air flow and moisture is necessary for maximizing energy savings, occupant comfort, and building longevity.

- SIPs dramatically reduce air leakage by providing continuous insulation (ci) and fewer gaps to seal, sealing methods
- Common sealing methods
- SIPS used in quick winter construction
