Building for the future
Structural Insulated Panel Building Systems are one of the newest wood frame building technologies available in today’s building materials market. It is the most cost effective and simplest framing system on the market today.
SIP construction exceeds energy efficient building standards and provides many other attractive attributes. These systems are fast to install, cutting significant time off your building schedule. They provide superior strength, insuring a high level of security, knowing that your home is safer against the forces of nature.
Comfort is one of the greatest attributes. These systems block heat and cold from penetrating the exterior envelope of the home as well as block heat and cold from escaping the conditioned environment of the interior of your home. You’ll be astounded at the energy savings these building systems provide.
The Natural Resource Defense Council stated “SIPs are one of the best uses of our natural resources”. SIP’s are considered to be an environmentally sustainable building product.

Insulated Concrete Forming Systems
Insulated Concrete Forming Systems are the ultimate in building technologies.
ICFs provide the maximum energy efficiency. You can huff and puff, shake, rattle and roll, and you won’t be able to bring this house down. The core of an ICF is solid concrete, a home built with this system is highly fire and water resistant.
A common questioned asked about SIP and ICF construction is, "How do these building systems compare in cost to stick frame construction?" When all costs are properly factored, SIP and ICF building systems are cost comparable to the age old dinosaur framing technique of stick frame construction. The biggest difference from stick frame is that after your project is built with a SIP or ICF, your savings account grows from the money you will save on your energy bills!
