How Long Can SIPs Last?

In our work as specialists in SIPs design and SIPs manufacturing, we can confirm that SIPs installations are extremely long-lasting. On average, SIPs panels can last over 60 years, with some standing the test of time and lasting for 90 years, especially if they’re well-maintained and not installed in moist areas. They’ve even been known to withstand tropical storms, including category 4 and 5 hurricanes. Given their strength, it’s no surprise that they’ve become one of the most popular construction materials in the past few years.

How Do SIPs Panels Compare to Other Materials?

As SIPs contractors operating in Wiltshire, the main alternatives we’ve seen to our SIPs installations are ICFs (insulated concrete forms) and spray foam. When compared to these two options, SIPS manufacturing and SIPs design ensure that they don’t degrade the same way because they’re wind and watertight. This is achieved by sandwiching foam insulation between two OSB boards (Oriented Strand Boards), reducing cold-bridging and increasing their lifespan in the process. Furthermore, thanks to SIPs design, SIPs are more cost-efficient, easier to assemble, and made from sustainable materials, making them ideal for eco friendly homes.

In particular, when compared with ICFs, SIPs are overall the wiser choice for our customers in and around Wiltshire. It’s true that ICFs are more energy-efficient and fire-resistant due to their Fox blocks. However, insulated concrete forms generally cost more to install and have indoor humidity problems. Most builders don’t recommend ICFs for homeowners who live in a cold climate such as that of the UK because they transfer heat from the inside, leaving your property feeling colder than it would be otherwise.
