Warm and dry: An energy-efficient, safe option for your home

Save on heating and insulation costs with a building system that is
50% to 70% more energy-efficient than standard wood-framed construction.

Achieve a healthy, comfortable living experience with lower energy bills all year round.

Our construction method and envelope system create an airtight home with superior insulation performance, so you can stay warm – for less.

Our unique system delivers unprecedented thermal breaking – significantly preventing the flow of thermal energy between the inside and outside of your home.

This system outperforms many leading insulation brands on the market today. It offers a higher degree of airtightness and reduced heat loss to provide a consistent, controllable airtight building envelope with stable interior conditions. The perfect recipe for lower energy consumption, year-round.

Potential savings in energy costs range between 50% and 70% over the life of the building.

How do selectSIP homes compare with traditional new home builds?

  • Up to 40% of a home’s heat can be lost due to air leakage (average).

  • Up to 25% of a home’s heat loss can be caused by timber framing.

  • Estimates suggest that SIP systems are up to 15 times more airtight than timber-framed alternatives with traditional fiberglass batt insulation.


With selectSIP’s CodeMark building envelope system, air is efficiently retained within the building envelope giving you complete, continuous insulation throughout your home.


Timber framing gives the heat inside your home a direct bridge to escape and allows cool, moist air in.

When paired with sagging and degradable insulation that never covers 100% of your house, and leakage points standard with traditional truss and frame construction, your indoor environment can become cold, damp, and unstable.

The real R-value
of selectSIP outperforms traditional alternatives

R-values are a measure of the ability of a product to resist the flow of heat. The higher the R-value number, the better the insulation properties of the product.

Our panels have a very high energy efficiency performance. When coupled with the building science behind the unique selectSIP envelope system, your home’s ability to resist the transfer of heat (R-value) is greatly enhanced.

This is where our system comes into play. How the product is used will impact the overall R-value of the building structure.

“Net zero, positive energy, and passive design projects primarily rely on SIPs in their designs.

The efficient energy envelope paired with renewable energy sources, such as solar and geothermal, creates structures that don’t take energy from the grid.

Many can give back to the grid.”
