A prefab sip house kit is a high-performance building system for residential and light commercial construction. Prefab SIPs house kits are made with panels that consist of an insulating material sandwiched between two structural facing steel boards. Building with SIPs will save homeowners time, money, and labor, on top of delivering long-term value.
Prefab SIPs are manufactured under factory controlled conditions and can be fabricated to fit nearly any building design. The result is a building system that is extremely strong, energy-efficient, and cost-effective. There are many reasons to choose SIPs house kits for your small home build, but six, in particular, stand out.
One of the most significant selling points for choosing prefab SIPs home kits is it allows you to have a sustainable build. Sustainable building (also known as “Green Building”) uses less energy and reduces damaging carbon dioxide emissions. Prefab sips buildings achieve the most rigorous standards in sustainable building.
SIPs are faster and easier to build. (Yes, you read that right!) For one, you can get prefab small home kits that contain pre-measured and pre-cut SIPs. House kits come to eliminate the need for a long design phase. Even if you build a custom home kit from SIPs, the panels offer significant time savings. Because the panels are self-contained framing and installation, they cut out steps in the home building process.
SIPs house kits are a great way to save energy. Prefab SIPs create a superior building envelope with high thermal resistance and minimal air infiltration. Many new prefab home builders see energy savings of 50%-70% after moving into a house built with SIPs. SIPs panels kits have a low impact on the environment and reduce energy costs. SIPs are fabricated in a controlled environment allowing for greater efficiency than site-built framing. SIPs also take less energy and raw materials to produce than other structural building systems. Yes, they are “green.”
