Building with SIPs generated significantly less onsite construction waste while framing our home when compared to building a house using conventional framing especially since all of the window and door openings were precut at the factory. This left only minor trim work needing completion onsite. Building with SIPs did increase our material costs compared to conventional framing. However, we recouped a good portion of that cost through decreased labor costs. The exterior of our house was completely framed in 19 calendar days. This was significantly faster than if we had used conventional framing. Finally, due to the extremely tight envelope that SIPs give our house, we are enjoying very low heating and cooling bills. As utility costs rise, we will save thousands of dollars in monthly utility bills over the life of our home – thanks to our SIP panels
