Why SIPs?: This build was a project done as a Design Build, and for which the client was 100% in favor of using SIPs. They incorporated SIPs with the floor, exterior walls, and roof. The energy efficiency of this product and the overall cost savings only added to the positive choice of Premier SIPS.
Benefits of SIPs: The cost of construction in northern California is through the roof. SIPs helped bring both the labor and material costs down and the speed of SIP construction reduced the overall burden on the project substantially.
- All windows, doors, siding, and roofing exceeded the energy requirements of Cal-Green.
