SIP Panel Construction Whatcom, Skagit, Snohomish County
We can build homes and buildings using SIP Panels
SIP panels or structurally insulated panels are a form of constructing buildings faster and stronger than traditional stick-built construction. SIP panels are a structured composite material that consists of an insulating layer (in the middle) and it’s sandwiched between a layer of structured board (OSB) on either side. Instead of a sandwich though, it can quickly become an exterior wall, an interior wall, a roof panel, or even your floor. They are incredibly strong because they are engineered and in many cases can go up faster than a traditional stick built home.

Some Clear Benefits To Building With SIP Panels
While the cost of SIP panel materials is often higher than a comparable stick framed home or building there are still many advantages to using it to build a structure. One of the biggest advantages is that SIPs work as a system including framing, insulation, and exterior sheathing all in one. They are pre-cut to size for the project and eliminate the need to cut, frame, and trim lumber. This means they can quickly go together, usually requiring less tradespeople working on the project which can bring cost savings on the labor side of your construction expense, some manufacturers of SIP panels claim up to 30% in labor costs compared to a stick built home or building.
A well built SIP panel home or building will have a tighter building envelope than it’s stick frame counterparts, this means better insulating, fewer drafts, and better energy efficiency. We’d be happy to discuss your potential SIP panel project.
What You Need To Know About SIP Panel Construction
#1. There are many SIP brands out there: There are many different manufacturers of SIP panels (several right here in Washington) and they all offer slightly different products, sometimes one being better than other depending on the specific project. We’d be happy to discuss the SIP panel products we work if you are interested in this type of construction.
#2. They are environmentally friendly: Traditional construction projects (stick built) are notorious for creating a lot of wood waste, enough till fill a few dumpsters with every project. With a SIP panel building there will still be small amounts of waste created but because the panels are pre-built and cut to size prior to shipping them out, there is much less on-site waste. SIP panels are also made using mostly recyclable materials too, which makes them an excellent choice for green construction.
#3. Not very many contractors specialize in SIP panels: If you are interested in this type of construction it’s important you find a professional contractor who has experience building SIP structures. This can lead to bad advice being given based on a lack of experience with the SIP panel products.
#4. SIP material costs are higher: You are generally going to pay the same or more (there are many variables) for the SIP panels than you would compared to stick framed. As we mentioned earlier though the reduced labor usually more than makes up the difference in cost with some manufacturers claiming up to 30% cost savings for an entire project.
