In North America for about 50 years already practiced the construction of houses of sip panels. In our country, this technology came only 5-10 years ago, but every year the popularity of houses built with it only increases.

The main advantages of houses made of sip panels
Before proceeding with the design of the houses under the sip panel, you should get acquainted with the main advantages of such buildings:
Saving heat. Today, houses with the use of this material are considered the most warm in the world. According to calculations, a house built with the use of Canadian technology is as much as 6 times warmer than a brick house.
The ability to maintain the temperature, makes living in such a dwelling very comfortable, because in the winter time in the house is not cold, and in the summer time – not hot. Finishing houses made of veneer panels gives the house an opportunity to safely tolerate temperature fluctuations from -50C to +50C.
Durability. Structures made of vip panels are characterized by a high level of strength, and their integral design can withstand hurricanes and earthquakes up to 7.5 points. The walls of the premises are able to withstand a ten-ton vertical load and two-ton lateral load per square meter.
High speed of construction. In just 3 months you can build a house with an area of 150 m2. The construction of single-storey houses made of sip panels can be done at any time of the year.
Refers to environmentally friendly construction technologies.
Guarantee of long-term operation. Styrofoam is not subject to decay and deformation, as a result of which the estimated service life of a house built using this technology is 80 years.
Resistance to fire. Houses made of sip panels are characterized by the presence of the third degree of fire resistance. The walls of such a room can withstand the effects of direct fire for an hour.
But the biggest plus is that such houses have the ability to self-extinguish. It is noted that the thermal energy released during the combustion of such houses is as much as 7 times less than the energy released during the combustion of structures made of wood.
Availability of sound insulation. Polystyrene foam does not let the vibrations of air masses, so it is able to absorb sound up to 70 dB. That is why such houses are the ideal solution for families with children, because you can no longer be afraid that the neighbors will complain about the child’s excessive activity or his passion for musical toys.
Stages of building a sip panel house
To build a dwelling with the use of sip panels, it is necessary to follow a certain plan:
Construction of the house with the use of the above technology begins with the creation of the foundation. Given the fact that the sip panels have a relatively light specific weight, the foundation can be used as a strip, and the columnar type.
If in such a house it is not planned to create a basement, the best variant of the foundation is recognized as a monolithic slab of concrete, creating a basement of the construction.
On top of the foundation, a framework is created for the future walls and floors between the floors. The distance between the vertical racks of the frame must coincide with the dimensions of the panel width. That is why, after the installation of the bottom strapping of the horizontal type, the frame vertical studs are installed according to the dimensions of the vinyl panel to be installed in a certain place.
Another option for installing the walls is considered a detailed calculation of the location of each part of the frame, carried out taking into account the dimensions of the vinyl panels in a special computer program. Finished assembling the walls, you need to move on to the installation of the roof system.
With full compliance with the technology of construction of buildings out of sip panel, two-storey houses can be assembled in 3 weeks, with much more time to design a dwelling, about 2 months. It takes about 1-1.5 months to build a sip panel house with a garage.
At the same time, a huge plus of construction of buildings from such material is that during the construction work there is no need to use heavy equipment to lift individual sip panels, because their weight does not exceed 20 kilograms.
Finishing and interior decoration
Another advantage of houses made of sip panels is that you can use almost any material to finish them. But in most cases, the facade is finished with siding, masonry bricks (for this you must first strengthen the foundation) and artificial stone.
The design of houses made of foam panels, can also be created in any style, it all depends on the future owners of the premises. But most often the interior of such houses is decorated in a modern style, where the main element is the presence of the fireplace (before installing it is necessary to additionally perform finishing of walls with fire-resistant materials).
It is especially popular to decorate the interior of houses made of sip panels in such styles:

If you don’t want to spend your time decorating the exterior and interior appearance of the house, you can just look at the catalog of ready-made houses made of sip panels.
At this stage in time, many construction organizations engaged in the erection of houses made of chip panels, introduced in the list of services of building fully developed houses. That is, a number of professional designers, carried out the development of interior and exterior of this or that house. Then the customer comes to the office of the organization, looks at the proposed options and chooses the most suitable for themselves, allowed a number of adjustments.
As a result of the information received, you can definitely say that the house of sip panels, suitable for those people who do not like long waits and are used to always take care of their health.
After all, environmental friendliness, durability and resistance to fire guarantee protection from all the most popular problems of our time. And having soundproofing in the presence of a small child will make life much easier for young parents and their neighbors.
The Canadian technology of building houses still causes a lot of controversy, but more than one resident has confirmed the quality of such a dwelling.
