The choice of SIPS panels now includes metal sips where the exterior panels are often made of steel. This adds to other commonly used options such as OSB (oriented strand board) and often cement board panels. All options still have a core of EPS (expended polystyrene) to provide the insulation properties, all already contained within the panel. Construction is straightforward as panels are already insulated and work on housing and commercial construction sites can progress quickly.
