Why use R-Control Structural Insulated Panels in a Green Home Plan?

First of all R-Control SIPs are a strong structural system consisting of rigid foam insulation laminated between sheets of structural sheathing. This simple sandwich forms an amazingly strong structural panel. This strength makes R-Control SIPs one the strongest building systems available…a very good feature when storms threaten. And, the quality of R-Control SIPs assure you of straight, flat walls with no bulging framing members. A continuous wood surface inside and out provides a sound nailing base for every type of exterior and interior finish…just think of how easy hanging pictures will be.

Another great feature of an R-Control SIP structure is the comfort benefit to you and your family. R-Control SIPs help to create an inside home environment that is more easily and economically controlled…no drafts, no cold spots…you are comfortable and the environment benefits because you’re using less energy and creating less pollution. In addition to their superior physical comfort, R-Control SIP structures are also very quiet and clean. This is due to R-Control SIP structures air tight envelope, so FreeGreen designers always specify high performance air ventilation, heat recovery and air filtering systems to ensure optimum indoor air quality.

Let’s talk about long term durability against mold, mildew and destructive wood eating insects like termites. R-Control SIPs are made with Foam-Control EPS termite resistant Perform Guard insulation and are additionally protected with FrameGuard® Coating. FrameGuard coating protects the OSB facings from mold, mildew, decay and termites. FrameGuard protection includes a 20 year warranty and the FrameGuard coating is Green Guard® certified for indoor air quality.
