Jim has many years experience building log homes. When Jim & Tammy decided it was time to build their own family home they chose to use SIP panels for his roof system to compliment the energy efficiency of his log walls. Jim & Tammy also realized that along with the energy efficiency came the reduced costs of labor and time required to build their roof system using SIPs. Jim and one other person completed this 4400 sq ft roof system in under 1 week.

In many cases log or timberframe homes are built in areas where either very few trades people are available or there are many miles to be travelled each day to and from the build site. This is when it makes even more sense to look at SIPs — due the fact that the panels come pre-cut and ready to install with a minimum amount of time and site work required in comparison to standard roof framing and insulating practices. The roof system has an R- Rating of R-40 and a performance rating much higher. Once the roof panels are in place the roofing material can be directly applied.
