6-1/2" EPS

SIP roof thickness and core material:
12-1/4" EPS

Describe the benefits of using SIPs on this project. Did SIPs help save time, labor, construction costs, or energy?
SIPs were the only framing system that would provide the rapid construction and high energy efficiency that the builder desired.
