Structural Insulated Panels - SIPs
Structural Insulated Panels, or SIPs, are a game changer - so much so that we are investing to be the 2nd factory in California and the ONLY factory-built company using SIPS. Why are they such a big deal - read below:
30% More Efficient
CA Energy Code is not getting easier! In fact in 2023, there are even more stringent guidelines coming. And yet housing is becoming increasingly unaffordable in this state. Enter SIPs. They are so tight and efficient that the building qualifies for many energy efficient certifications. You will notice as soon as you walk in - they are cool in the summer, and warm in the winter, and the noise from outside is non-existent. These are SIPs and we are the only factory using them on our housing.
A SIP is quite simply a sandwich of Oriented-Strand board sandwiched to a large piece of solid Styrofoam. All of these products are sourced from unused raw materials. For example with stick frame lumber it must be straight and long, the left over wood is glued together to make OSB.
Labor Reduction = Cost Savings
In a factory-setting, were everything is patterned, the time savings we achieve using panels instead of individual sticks is tremendous. This actually allows us to create more jobs and more housing. The faster we go, the more we build.
SIPS allow us to flex our factory modules on site. Need a bigger house, a bigger great room or a garage we can modify our designs to include more panels in-between our factory modules to customize your home.
