Imagine framing large soaring roof lines, open vaulted ceilings and no truss system. When buildings are framed with Premier SIP roofs, the roof structure alone is strong enough that it doesn’t need an engineered truss system. Without the need for trusses, Architects and Designers have the opportunity to use their design creativity like never before. The strength of a Premier SIPS structure gives building owners peace of mind that their new home or building is strong enough to last for years to come.






Premier SIPS are delivered to the jobsite pre-cut ready for assembly. In modular building, the large wall, roof and floor panels can be installed much 

like a puzzle. The speedy installation not only saves builders time in the framing process, but the straight panels offer features that save other subcontractors hours (and even days) in their trades.




The environmental benefits of choosing Premier Structural Insulated products are huge. Significantly lower energy bills and reduced jobsite construction waste makes Premier SIPS the cream of the “green” building products available today. Premier SIPS offers the use of materials made from rapidly renewable resources, better indoor air quality and temperature control as well as tax credits & environmental certifications for the builder and homeowners. We think you’ll agree that Premier SIPS are one of the best environmental framing products on the market.


Cost Effective.

Sure, it doesn’t end with –er, but builders and homeowners find the cost-effectiveness of SIPs one of the biggest advantages vs. stick-built construction. By shortening the framing and insulation time during homebuilding by an average of 5 days, builders and homeowners enjoy the labor cost savings on the total project. With trade labor shortages nationwide, faster installs that require less skilled labor are key. View this video showing an install and panels simply being placed according to a map
