SIPs Vs Stick Frame Construction
Sips simply outperform sticks!
Build tight and ventilate right, that is the key difference in how SIPs outperform stick framed construction. When compared to buildings framed with dimensional lumber, Extreme’s large SIPs cover greater surfaces with far less gaps in the walls and roofs to be filled and sealed. These large panels offer owners better indoor quality, reduced infiltration of outside pollutants, smaller HVAC systems, and a superior indoor temperature control. As a result, Extreme buildings stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Extreme’s SIPs have consistently outperformed other building methods of construction in both whole wall R-value comparison and energy efficiency. The best data we have are the happy customers that report the dramatic results of less energy used every month.

A BASF Corporation time and motion study conducted by the RS Means unit of Reed Construction Data shows that residential builders can reduce their framing labor needs by as much as 55 percent by using structural insulated panels (SIPs) instead of conventional “stick-building” methods.
