Why Go Green?

The simple answer is to help the environment and to save money.

Building with green methods means you will keep more money in your pocket in the long run. Along with money, sustainability is a huge advantage of green building. Imagine having a home that takes little or no money to operate-having smaller heating and cooling bills.

During the construction of your new building there is less waste with the use of SIP’s because the panels come pre-constructed for easy assembly. This reduces the construction time for less potential interference from the weather and other job site variables. In addition the construction method for SIP’s eliminates the need to replace warped or faulty studs, again cutting down on waste, time and effort.

Once constructed the SIP’s building will use 50-70% less energy than a conventional building. For every pound of energy used to produce the SIP’s panels and the ICF’s, there is a lifetime saving in energy of 150 pounds. A “1 to 150” positive ratio.

SIP’s buildings are sturdier, and built to last longer than a conventional approach, meaning less replacement cost, and less of a drain on the environment.

In addition, a better-constructed and more energy efficient building significantly increases the overall resale value. (One recent study showed that for every dollar saved on energy costs, there is a twenty dollar in increased resale value.)

Why go green? Why go any way else?

What Our Customers Have To Say

Our Insulspan SIP home was delivered mid June of 2006. Within 2 days our 1560 sq ft home was set up on our concrete pad and was covered in house and roof wrap. I cannot say enough about the excellent workmanship provided by Jon Morehouse and his crew. The cost of heating our SIP home located in West-central Illinois near Moline, IL was $150 for the entire winter of 2006-2007, $180 for the winter of 2007-2008 and from 10-10-08 to 2-1-09, the cost was $112 with the average temperature during November, December and January averaging 8-10 degrees below normal. We are very happy with our Insulspan SIP home and would make very few, if any change if we were to build again.
