Fast and Effecient Green Home Extensions from W4 Projects Weymouth Dorset.
What are SIPs?
SIPs (Structural Insulated Panels) are a revolutionary modern product in the UK which permit home owners to build extensions quickly, efficiently, cost-effectively, with minimum mess and in an environmentally friendly way. These eco-friendly panels are made from OSB, Oriented Strand Board (similar to chipboard but with bigger flakes) created from sustainably harvested Spruce thinings from managed plantations, bonded to a foam core.
Why Use SIPs.
SIPs are used as walls and roofs on all types of buildings and are a response to building regulations requirements, offering a more economical method of meeting new requirements for insulation. They also provide:
- A less messy solution to the usual lengthy building process with panels being cut to size in a factory before being assembled on site.
- A much quicker extension building solution for homeowners.
- Optimised internal floor space with SIPs being up to a third less than traditional cavity walls.
- A more environmentally friendly solution to building home extensions for the same price as traditional building methods.
