Thermocore of Missouri’s Structured Insulated Panels, or SIPS, gives you, the homeowner, a great home constructed with green friendly products. SIPs are made of foam and oriented strand board. Both of these take less energy and raw materials than other structural building systems.
Benefits to the Homeowner
Using Structured Insulated Panels could qualify your residence for energy efficiency grants. Superior energy efficiency means immediate savings through smaller utility bills. And, this savings could be 50% or more year after year for as long as you are the homeowner.
A home built with SIPs creates an airtight “envelope” that prevents air from gaining access to the interior of the home except in controlled amounts. So, temperature and humidity can be controlled more easily in a SIP home. This results in a home that is more comfortable and less prone to mold growth and dust mites. Your home will be healthy and just “down right comfortable”! And, that is just what every homeowner wants.
In addition to the energy efficiency and the comfort, building your home with SIPs provides you with a high fire resistance rating. Residential construction codes require a 15-minute fire-resistant thermal barrier on the interior for all residential structures. SIPs meet that code!
So, the home is built great and feels great. But, what about on the inside? For starters, the inside of the walls and corners are square from the start, so interior finishes look better because lines, angles and curves are crisp and sharp. Because the SIPs are constructed as a “unit” there is minimal settling of the panels. Minimal settling means walls stay square and shelving stays level. And, SIPs give you a more secure surface for fastening shelving and artwork.
Cost Savings for the Homeowner
A SIP built home can be erected much faster than a traditional “stick built” house. The SIPs are per-fabricated based on the homeowner’s specifications. This results in less waste on the site and a savings in labor costs.
In addition, rough-in wiring with prefabricated wire chases further increases these savings in labor costs. SIPs will accommodate standard window jambs therby eliminating costly jam extensions. And, Thermocore of Missouri is the only panel manufacturer to pre-install window and door 2x bucks.
