Building with Structural Insulated Panels (Sips) (eBook)

Building with Structural Insulated Panels (Sips) (eBook)
by Michael Morley
PDF eBook

Every once in a while a new technology comes along that makes its predecessors obsolete. Today, Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) are in the process of replacing the postwar norm of stick-framed, fiberglass-insulated houses and light commercial buildings. SIPs produce a structurally superior, better insulated, faster to erect, and more environmentally friendly house than ever before possible.

SIPs are solid, one-piece structural components that can be used in walls, floors, and roofs. Instead of separate pieces of framing, insulation, and sheathing, a SIP panel incorporating all three components comes ready to install.

In this book, experienced SIP builder Michael Morley explains how to:

  • choose the right panels for the job
  • equip yourself with the tools you need to work with SIPs
  • fabricate panels and components
  • install wall and roof panels
  • run mechanical systems in SIP buildings
