Just what are structural insulated panels? These panels are made from a rigid foam insulation that is use to create a continuous core. The actual panel will include outer structural boards that are laminated to the foam core. The panels are so energy efficient that they provide from 30% to 50% savings in energy bills in houses that they are installed.
Structural insulated panels can be used in several different ways throughout the homes. They can serve as insulation and paneling for the floors of the home, the walls of the home and even the structure of the roof. The more that the panels are used throughout a home, the more energy efficient it will be.

What’s in a S.I.P?
Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) are the energy efficient alternative to stick built homes. Without hesitation, your SIP Panel home will be one of the most comfortable, quiet and clean structures you will ever own. Unlike a stick-frame home, in which thermal performance is an afterthought, insulation is an integral part of a SIP Panel home. Air and moisture penetrations are greatly reduced because there are so few thermal breaks.
- SIP Panel buildings are 66% more energy efficient than standard frame construction
- 2-1/2 times stronger than standard building materials
- Cuts framing time by 2/3rds
- Stronger and straighter
- Better building systems
