How much do SIP panels cost?

SIP panels are an incredibly cost-effective material to use in construction. The cost of SIP panels will vary depending on factors such as panel thickness, length and width. However, one thing that can certainly highlight their financial advantages, is to look at how they compare price-wise to more traditional building methods:

Traditional Building Methods:

Materials Cost: Traditional construction methods often involve a combination of framing materials, insulation, and exterior sheathing. The costs can vary widely based on the type of materials used (wood, steel, concrete, etc.).

Labor Cost: Labor costs for traditional construction can be significant, especially if the project involves skilled trades like framing, insulation installation, and drywall.

Construction Time: Traditional construction may take longer due to the sequential nature of the process. This can lead to increased labor costs and extended project timelines.

Energy Efficiency: Traditional construction methods may require additional steps to achieve the same level of energy efficiency as SIPs, potentially increasing long-term operational costs.

Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs):

theMaterials Cost: SIPs can occassionally have higher upfront material costs, but they combine insulation and structural components into a single panel, potentially reducing overall material expenses.

Labor Cost: SIPs are designed for faster and easier installation, which can result in lower labor costs. The panels come precut and ready for assembly, reducing the need for extensive on-site cutting and framing.

Construction Time: SIPs can significantly reduce construction time compared to traditional methods. The speed of assembly can lead to cost savings associated with shorter project durations.

Energy Efficiency: SIPs provide high levels of insulation, potentially leading to lower long-term energy costs for heating and cooling.

Our SIP panels are made to order based on the exact measurements you provide – to the millimeter. Please use our on-site calculator for a tailored quote.

How much do SIPs weigh?

SIPs are a super lightweight alternative to traditional building materials.

The weight of Structurally Insulated Panels of course depends on their size and thickness (of which we offer lots of different options).

However we’ve provided a general guideline for the weight of one square meter within thiS article.

The versatility and flexibility of SIPs

Many of our customers ask us if Structurally Insulated Panels (SIPs) score highly when it comes to flexibility and versatility, so we’ve put together this article in a bid to explain.

Are SIP panels good for insulation?

SIPs are excellent insulators. They are prefabricated with a special layer of high performance insulation in the middle of two sheets of OSB. Compared to regular construction materials, this unique design gives buildings great insulation and more efficiency when it comes to saving energy.

How quickly can you build with SIP panels?

One of the standout benefits of Structurally Insulated Panels (SIPs) is the speed at which they can be used in construction projects.

The sustainability of SIPs

Structural Insulated Panels are a fantastic building material, which are made in a sustainable way.

In this article we look at what SIP panels are made from, and how they get the thumbs up from a sustainability standpoint.
