BuildGreen SIPS, LLC (“BuildGreen”) provides Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS), SIPS accessories, and SIPS related services for walls, roofs, floors, and foundations.
Structural Insulated Panels
Structural insulated panels (SIPs) have been used in construction since 1935 and have been in the residential building code since 2009. They replace insulation and function as walls, roofs, and flooring. The expandable polystyrene (EPS) has a volume of one pound per cubic foot and an R-Value of approximately R-4 per inch.
Constructing a home using structural insulated panels in Cohoes, NY, takes less labor, materials, and creates less waste. It combines at least five building components, thus reducing the margin of error. This provides the builder with the capability to construct a quality green home, faster and more cost-effectively.
SIPs panels are structural. They require no additional framing. They function as walls, roofs and can be used as flooring and foundation. A SIP panel replaces conventional insulation with EPS (expanded polystyrene) which is more energy-efficient and lifetime stable. To construct a SIP home takes less labor, fewer materials, and creates less waste. Structural insulated panels combine at least 5 building components in one step, thus reducing the margin of error.
