Stand Apart When You Build With SIPs

SIPs are a start to differentiating your business from competitors by offering a superior product, no matter what kind of project you’re building.

Builders are experiencing changing demands in the construction industry. With increasingly stringent building codes and customers demanding more innovation and customization from their builds, the pressure is on to stand out from the status quo. When choosing SIPs for your next project, you are ensuring the highest level of innovation and customization for your customers.

West-Eco can help your next project be a key differentiator for your business, and build your reputation as a builder that is better, greener, and future-focused.


Make The Switch To High Performance

Today’s most innovative builders are choosing to build with SIPs, and these are just some of the reasons why.

Less than Lumber: Overall project cost of SIPs over 2×6 stick framed lumber construction is up to 30% less.

Straighter: With the predictability of an engineered straight product, you won’t deal with imperfections and the bowing of lumber. Finished walls are straight, which saves on drywall installation, painting, and other finishing work.

Fast Installation: Large, pre-cut structural panels allow building envelope to be erected 50% faster, with no need for separate on-site framing and insulation work, enabling you to finish your project faster.

Economical to Operate: The tight building envelope reduces heating and cooling costs by up to 60%, offering significant savings on operating costs as well as greatly reduced mechanical equipment needs.
