Insulate yourself from high and rising energy costs
Slash energy costs by more than 50%
Give your family a $40 to $100 bonus every month for the
next 25 years of your mortgage! Add spending money to your
montly budget since the heat savings will offsett by 2 or
3 to 1 - the added cost for SIPs in your mortgage.
Healthy Home - eliminate mold potential
Minimal air content in the wall cavities and no air movement
through equals no condensation within the wall cavity or roof
and therefore no mold potential. Expanded polystyrene is totally
inert which means there is no off-gassing and will not wick-up
or hold moisture. Warm season or cold, a SIP home 'vapor diffusion'
system works reliably anywhere - say good-bye to vapor barrier
systems that cause internal wall condensation and produce
molds and mildew.
Eliminate uncontrolled drafts
Drafts and cold corners are gone, while gaining control of
air quality with a gentle and constant supply of FRESH AND
NON-RECIRCULATED AIR. Modern appliances, cooking, and simple
occupancy heat the home while an efficient HRV (Heat Recovery
Ventilation) system scrubs the heat out of the air 24 hours-a-day
and puts it back into the incoming fresh air. In the mild
winter climates of the Pacific Northwest at least 15oC of
heat can be hoarded inside before turning the heat on.
Lessen environmental impact
Reduce consumption of 'slow growth trees' by at least 30%.
Reduce long-term production of green house gas emissions by
50% or more.
Save construction time
Framing time is reduced while the quality of the exterior
walls is guaranteed at a high and consistent level. SIPs arrive
pre-cut with lumber pre-installed in openings ready for door
and window install. Insulation and vapor barrier are integral
so there is no time required before applying drywall and dry-in
waiting time is zero. A typical single-family SIP project
should experience at least a one-week time reduction prior
to drywall ready.
Reduce construction waste and associated costs
- Expensive waste removal to the landfill is greatly reduced.
- SIP's can get you most of the way to "getting off
the heating grid". Reduce the size requirements of
heating and/or cooling systems by more than half -saving
more up-front servicing costs. Heating and ventilation systems
can be integrated and optimized for a balanced and comfortable
- Call-backs for drywall cracks are virtually eliminated.
Zero maintenance -forever
While various products are available to increase efficiency
- most require power and some form of maintenance. As long
as exterior siding is protecting your walls from the elements,
no other product will save you so much energy in so little
time-all without the maintenance demands.
Strength is standard
SIP panels provide inherent stability to resist high winds
and earthquakes .
SIPBSI panels are ICBO certified and pressed using sandwich
lamination technology which provides un-matched strength to
weight. High-tech products like aircraft wings and surfboards
employ foam and laminate technology to maximize strength to
weight. SIP's use exactly the same principles and they don't
have to fly! SIP homes in Kobe Japan report no damage -not
even drywall cracks, while neighboring structures showed varying
levels of damage.
