SIPs – a ‘new kid on the block’ that’s continuing to grow in popularity among the self-build community, and others!
A rapidly increasing enthusiasm among self-builders, and others in the construction sector, to opt for SIPs as their primary build method over the past few years is such that it prompted Timber Innovations to launch a specialist customer service catering specifically for this market.
Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS) are a method of construction that have actually been around for some time – indeed, SIPs are popular in the United States, where they have been in use for over half a century. But then, they do say that what starts off as a good idea in the USA inevitably finds its way to the UK once it takes off on the other side of the Atlantic.
An advanced method of construction, SIPs offer excellent thermal performance, light-weight structural strength. SIPs use less timber than traditional timber frame and are one of the most economical and eco-friendly forms of construction.
