SIP Construction - Learn how to build with Structural Insulated Panels

  • Sale
  • Regular price $275.00

This online SIPs Class details the pros and cons of structural insulated panels and how best to use them to build. This course is meant to be watched through from start to finish without building at first and the curriculum remains available to you to revisit at any later date. 

For 30 years, we have been designing with and installing Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs). In the beginning we were using them exclusively to enclose our timber frames. Appreciating their unique structural benefits, we started incorporating the panels into floor systems and eventually framed entire buildings out of SIPs. We have learned on the job and now we will share our experience as well as the most up-to-date installation techniques. In this one day, hands-on seminar students will learn to spec and order panels, produce the most efficient panel layout, cut panels and prep them for assembly, cut openings for windows and doors, run wiring in panels, create air-tight joints between panels, install buck boards and learn the proper use of big reds, foam guns, splines, foam scoops, meat hooks, paddle routers, and chain saws in panel construction.

Students will become familiar with the essential benefits and potential pitfalls of working with panels. Over the years, we have worked with several major manufacturers and will justify our conclusion that R-Control panels are the best on the market. Gain familiarity with this innovative building material, its vocabulary, equipment, and fasteners so you can spec it or install it yourself on your next house.
