Structural Insulated Panels (SIP's) v Timber Frame
When researching the pro's and con's of (Structurally Insulated Panels) SIP panels v timber frame, the information available is hugely biased in favour of the SIP's.
Including the thermal efficiency, what are the other PRO's and CON's? What are peoples opinion on the Durability, Structural Integrity and Moisture Resistance of SIP's.
SIP panel systems have to achieve all sorts of certifications and testing to demonstrate compliance with the New Zealand Building Code (NZBC) which is great, but these are the minimum standards possible to build legally in NZ and we should be striving to exceed.
Please let us know your thoughts.
