What are Structural Insulated Panels, SIPs, and how are they environmentally friendly?

Most homebuyers are familiar with “stick framing” – construction using numerous individual boards with insulation added between them. Yet, an increasingly popular building method for high energy efficiency involves SIPs.  With SIPs, the body of the house is made of large-size prefabricated wall, ceiling and floor sections with built-in insulation.

SIPs are made of wood panels sandwiching a rigid insulating foam core. The result is fewer gaps in the home and more continuous insulation.  SIP homes are 15 times more airtight and have 47 percent greater insulating capacity than stick framing, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.

SIPs can help cut heating and cooling costs up to 60 percent, contribute to healthy indoor air by sealing out pollutants, and create up to two-thirds less jobsite waste that normally would be sent to our landfills.  Visit our website,, for more information.
