We often get a lot of questions about SIP Panels and because they are fairly new entrants to the building scene, there are sometimes concerns in the quality of the Panels. This post is here to answer some of the main questions that we receive about SIP panels so that you can make an informed decision about your new extension and realise the true strength and durability of SIPs.
We hope this answers all the questions you have about SIP Panels please get in touch with a member of the team today.
How Reliable are SIP Panels?
SIP Panels and insulation have an estimated lifespan of over 60 years. In reality, the panels often exceed this. SIPs provide an affordable solution for home extensions with an extremely high quality of finish.
What are Structurally Insulated Panels made of?
Structurally Insulated Panels are made in quite an easy to understand way. The panels around the outside cover a foam core that is mainly used for insulation purposes. SIPs vastly improve the installation time for extensions and home improvement projects.
How can you protect SIPs from decay?
It is important to prevent any air infiltration with SIPs. This could be caused by lack of tightly joined seals and there being any loose areas that air can seep in through. If air can enter, this also means water could seep in. We actively ensure all seams are and joints are tightly shut to prevent anything like this from happening.
Moisture in SIP Panel Roof
If there is ever any moisture present in SIP roofs this is usually the result of a joining not being sealed correctly. Before we sign a project off as being complete we will make sure that all the SIP panels are joined correctly and do not allow for any excess moisture to enter the extension. If you are worried you may have moisture in your SIP Panel Roof please get in touch today.
How environmentally friendly are SIPs?
SIPs are commonly known throughout the industry as being environmentally friendly. The reason that these panels are environment-friendly is that they provide a great level of insulation to extensions. This means that there is a lower cost in heating bills and as a result means that SIPS are green and eco-friendly home extensions.
How Structurally Reliable are SIPs?
Because of the structure of SIPs, this means that the load on the panels is distributed evenly. In addition to this tests conducted on the panels have shown that they have a very strong bending strength making them perfect for extensions and extremely reliable.
