 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

History of SIPS:

The first SIP structure was built in 1935 by the US Forest Products Laboratory.  The introduction of an automated panel press and the energy price hikes in the 1970's made the use of structural insulated panels or sandwich panels more prominent.  Product performance and affordability were impacted by the introduction of oriented strand board (OSB) in 1981.  Advancements in technology have since impacted the integrity of the OSB for structural engineering and improved the adhesives used by SIP manufacturers.  Research and development continue to make enhancements that positively affect the consumer and their choices.
