Why Structural Insulated Panels? Thermapan

SIPs are dimensionally stable. They are not prone to moisture that can undermine the integrity of concrete and wood framing. Concrete wall and foundation systems crack resulting in potential increased air and moisture leakage. Wood frame structures shrink and bend resulting in potential increased air leakage and uneven finishing services.
