Welcome To SIPS Louisiana
Why SIPS ?
Structural insulated panels (SIPs) are high performance building panels used in floors, walls, and roofs for residential and commercial buildings. SIPS Louisiana markets R-Control SIPs which consists of a strong structural system of EPS ( expanded polystyrene ) insulation laminated between two layers of structural sheathing ; typically OSB ( oriented strand board ). SIPs are manufactured under factory controlled conditions and can be custom designed for each home or commercial building. Structural Insulated Panels are one of the most environmentally responsible building systems available.The energy that powers homes and commercial buildings is responsible for a large portion of greenhouse gasses emitted into the atmosphere. By reducing the amount of energy used in buildings, architects, builders, and homeowners can contribute to a clean environment for the future. The result is a building system that is 'Green' , extremely strong, energy efficient and cost effective. Building with SIPs can save you time, money and labor.

Who is SIPS Louisiana ?
SIPS Louisiana was established by Louisiana and Acadiana native, John T. Landry. After Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, Landry was appointed by Louisiana's Governor, and served as a volunteer member, of the Louisiana Recover Authority. As Chair of the LRA's Infrastructure Task Force, he was exposed to the latest building technologies from throughout the world. The LRA was charged with providing information and encouraging the construction of stronger , storm-resistant, energy-efficient and ' Green ' homes. SIP [ Structural Insulated Panels ] stood out as the best building option to provide these qualities at a competitive price.

SIPS Louisiana is a member of the Structural Insulated Panel Association ( SIPA ) and is committed to providing quality structural insulated panels for all segments of the construction industry.

How much money can I save with Structural Insulated Panels?
Builders can save money through decreased construction and labor costs. The superior whole wall R-values and building tightness capable with SIPs allow HVAC equipment to be downsized and ductwork to be minimized. Builders can also significantly reduce jobsite waste disposal and temporary heat during construction. Homeowners that incorporate other energy efficient features with SIP construction can benefit from the energy efficiency of a SIP home with reductions in heating and cooling costs of up to 50 percent, possible qualification for Energy Efficiency Tax Credits , and potentially higher appraised value.

I want to build a structural insulated panel home. What is the first step?
For homeowners, the first step is to identify a quality builder who has experience with SIP construction. SIPS Louisiana can recommend an experienced SIP builder who will manage the plan conversion and review process. We recommend using only R-Control SIPs FrameGuard Coated panels with built-in protection against future costly repairs due to mold, fungal decay, and termites. R-Control SIPs have been extensively tested by nationally recognized laboratories. R-Control SIPs have been proven to meet or exceed all structural and fire code regulations. For 30 years, R-Control SIPs have shown they're the strongest, most reliable, and effective SIPs available anywhere.
