Interior of a SIP home

SIP Homes

In staying on top of the best energy-efficient building trends, McManus Construction also offers Structural Insulated Panel (SIP) Homes. Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) join high-performance rigid foam insulation to Oriented Strand Board (OSB) or plywood. The thickness of foam is adjusted to increase R-Value. Ridge beams with EPS panels can eliminate trusses and provide your vaulted great room with extremely high R-values and air-tight panel systems.

The biggest benefit of SIP construction versus stick-built is energy efficiency. Why pay to heat and cool the outdoors? Air leakage and improperly installed insulation can waste 20% or more of the energy you pay to heat and cool your home. Typical homes have so many leaks, it’s like having a window open all the time, winter and summer.

Building with SIPs allows you to incorporate your unique style, whether it's a dramatic custom kitchen, vaulted ceiling, or beautiful open-concept space. A home built with SIPs will provide plenty of options for exterior finishes as well. You can opt for traditional wood or vinyl siding, or choose brick and stone finishes. Exterior finishes provide not only a decorative look, but weatherproofing for the life of the home.
