A few of the Key Benefits of SIP Construction:
Energy cost savings of 50% or greater
As much as 30% faster construction than other methods
Optimal indoor air quality; significantly quieter
Minimally 2-1/2 times stronger than stick frame
- Additional usuable interior space
Wind rating up to 200mph with additional construction package
Full 360o thermal envelope with floor, walls and roof
Reduction of frame-in time allowing accelerated interior finish
Panels are manufactured in controlled environment for quality assurance
Material used is engineered for strength
More efficient performance of heating and air systems
The Bid and the Construction Process:
Backside of NoWhere, LLC helps planning your home an easier process. Building with SIPs makes the preplanning stages even friendlier. The following preliminary information will allow us to provide a complimentary budgetary quotation.
- Outside perimeter dimensions or approximate square footage
- Roof pitch
- Foundation type (slab, foundation stem wall or basement; or pre-treat runners for recreational use)
Once a design is confirmed and price is accepted, with a reasonable deposit the panel manufacturer will generate drawings for final validation. Upon receipt of the approved drawing the order will be scheculed for production and delivery. Balance of the order is due at delivery.
What are R-Values?
R-Value is the measure of the capacity of a material, such as insulation, to impede heat flow, with increasing values indicating a greater capacity. Enercept use sEPS (expanded polystyrene) for the insulating core which has an R-Value of 4 per inch of foam. One must consider the 'whole system' efficiency to obtain a more accurate R-value.
· 6-1/2″ SIPS wall panel has an R-Value of about 25
· 10″ SIPS roof panel has an R-value of about 40
