 Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs)

Anyone have experience with Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs)? My architect has specked these on our house plans for the roof-construction in lieu of a conventional stick-built roof. The reason, is we have a ton of windows. In order to meet code we must over-compensate in the roof in order to get the overall R-value we need for the home. SIPs allow us to achieve this with a lot less lumber. We have rough winters around here, and I am wondering if anyone has any experience with these in a similar climate. Thanks.

 Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs)

SIPS are a great way to build. I used ICF's for my walls, and then the icynene type insulation for my attic, but wish I would have figured out how to fit SIPS into the budget.

The only important thing is that they be installed properly, with all gaps/joints sealed with foam glue. In super cold environments, moisture from the interior can condense on the underside of the outer sheathing, if there are unsealed gaps. Google "Juno" and SIPS and you'll find the details.

All in all, a good way to build.
