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 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.
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

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.
