Insulated Panels

Structural insulated panels are being installed on our project in the Upper Valley in New Hampshire.  The insulated panels create a continuous, high performance insulating shell. 

The panels for this home, also called SIP panels, were provided by Foard Panel, and were precut for windows and doors.  The precut panels allowed for a quick installation and also reduces on-site waste.

The panels are applied vertically then the interior drywall is applied horizontally, which is then cut for the openings.

Insulated panels are a great insulation system.  For more information on SIPs, see previous blogs on Structural insulated panels.
