What are Structural Insulated Panels?
New Hampshire SIP Home Builders
Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs)- a building material that consists of panels made from a thick layer
of foam (polystyrene or polyurethane) sandwiched between two layers of Oriented Strand Board
Structural panels offer very effective insulating qualities, rapid installation, and consistent quality
(minimizing waste). The use of OSB or waferboard for facings is considered a positive use of wood
In addition, less wood is wasted at the construction site than stick built homes making structural
insulated panels favorable materials to "green building" organizations.
