SIPS Structural Insulated Panel System

What is SIPS?

Structural insulated panels

The green way to build

Structural insulated panels (SIPs) are a high-performance building system for residential and light commercial construction. The panels consist of an insulating foam core sandwiched between two structural facings, typically oriented strand board (OSB). 

SIPs are manufactured under factory controlled conditions and can be fabricated to fit nearly any building design. The result is a building system that is extremely strong, energy efficient and cost-effective saving you time, money and labor.  
SIPs are one of the most airtight and well-insulated building systems available, making them an inherently green product. An airtight SIP building will use less energy to heat and cool, allow for better control over indoor environmental conditions, and reduce construction waste.



  • SIP homes save 40-60% on energy

  • R-Values are significantly higher — up to 100% greater for the same thickness wall

  • Air infiltration is 5 times less, resulting in less heating and cooling loss

  • Smaller HVAC systems, using less energy, are needed to heat and cool the same space


SIPs do not contain any VOCs or other harmful chemicals that can affect occupant health. The components used to make SIPs (foam, oriented strand board, and adhesive) meet some of the most stringent standards for indoor air quality.


  • Entire wall/roof assembly installs quickly and easily in sections

  • Openings and chases precut at factory sheathing or insulating on site

  •  Uniform nailing surface for siding and trim

  • Fewer callbacks


  • Lower energy costs

  • Healthier, quieter, more comfortable living space

  • Stronger, more disaster-resistant home

  • Greener, more sustainable process

  • Improved resale value
