Builder and homeowner benefit from the speed and efficiency with which a SIPS home goes up. SIPS panels are components, which are constructed with dimensional accuracy in a manufactured setting then transported to the job or home site. Construction time at the site is spent erecting walls, not correcting mistakes. Each panel is numbered and labeled and assembled on-site. The walls of smaller homes (under 1,200 square feet for instance) may go up in under an hour and the entire home is often "dried in" in a matter of days. Not only does this save the homeowner thousands of dollars in labor costs, most SIPS construction crews consist of less than half-a-dozen workers, including the crane operator. Depending on the size and configuration of the house, the panels can be assembled in a matter of days or weeks as well. It's not unheard of to have a home ready to move into in 30-to-45 days.
