Item No. 2 - Structural Insulated Panels - SIP (Exterior Walls & Roof System)
At Log Home Outfitters we help evaluate the proper materials to use on the exterior walls and roof of your project. In many cases SIP's are used for their energy efficiency, structural strength & resilience, design versatility, comfort, ease of assembly, labor "cost savings", and Green Building.
The SIP's we use at Log Home Outfitters are a combination of Performance-Rated Oriented Strand Board (OSB) Structurally Laminated to a continuous core of Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) insulation.
The SIP panels used at Log Home Outfitter are Ready-to-Assemble Panels. What does this mean? just that! Panels can go up as soon as they are delivered, with no need for customizing at the job site. Our packages arrive with panels cut to design specifications, openings pre-cut and finished with window and door bucks installed, wire chases pre-cut in the SIP panels and, where possible, their panel-to-panel connections inserted. All proper fasteners, sealants, and panel seal tape are also included.
