One of the major benefits of using SIPs for us, was the shop drawing review process. This enabled us to review and coordinate prior to contractors mobilizing onsite, giving us more control and confidence in the construction process. We also feel the shop fabricated wall system provides for higher quality construction. The contractor found the system to be a cost effective solution that helps eliminate possible defects of hand framing and provided more confidence that we would achieve a high quality, tight envelope. This was confirmed by our blower door test where the home measured 1.38 ACH50, indicating a very efficient envelope was achieved even with a complicated design.
