Below is a great article summarized by eSIPS Project Coordinator Seth Charles a few months ago. Due to the questions we receive about the benefits of building a panelized home over a stick built, we thought we would post this article again!
In a side by side comparison by the Wood Truss Council of America, two identical homes were built under controlled circumstances. One home was built with a conventional “stick-built” approach using lumber delivered to the jobsite where it was handled multiple times during the layout, cutting, nailing and sheathing operations. The second home was built with structural panel components, delivered to the site ready to be stood in place by the erection crew.
To summarize, the onsite manhours for the component crew were only 36% of what the stick-built crew needed to frame the house and overall costs (labor and material combined) were 15% less!
Not only did the panelized crew finish the home faster, the overall cost was less! We tend to speak to cost as it pertains to the money you spend on the materials and labor alone, but let’s not forget the costs associated with on-site waste removal, “mistakes,” and other delays caused by weather and material shortages. With a panelized home you can save time and money and with our eSIPS Insulated Panel Home System, you are saving the step of insulating later on. Not to mention the added advantage of a superior insulation material with portions made with BioBased spray foam!
Combining these advantages with working with our experienced design staff and knowledgeable project coordinators gives you peace of mind and the guarantee of a successful project. Call us now to find out more about our homes and how we can help you build the home of your dreams!
