The Thermocore Advantage: Polyurethane Panels vs. EPS SIPs

Most Energy Efficient SIP

Thermocore R-value:
6.9 per inch

EPS R-value:
3.5 per inch

Twice the R-value means a shorter payback on your Thermocore investment dollar.  Thermocore will give lower HVAC costs vs. EPS panels.  Higher R-value means lower HVAC cost and more money in your pocket.

Electrical Boxes and Conduit Built-In

Complete electrical boxes and conduit factory installed

Electrical chases means expensive labor upcharges

Each Thermocore panel comes complete with electrical boxes and conduit installed, eliminating expensive electrical upcharges associated with EPS panels.

Lower Overall Cost

More standard features

Charge extra for cutting, added lumber, chases, and more

Custom cut panels, door and window bucks, headers, electrical boxes, and conduit are just some of the panel features included at no extra charge.

A Safer Foam Core

Self-extinguishing and will never melt

Melts at 180° F

Would you buy lumber that melts at 180°F to build your dream home?  Build with the security of knowing Thermocore foam will NEVER melt, is not a source of fuel, and is self-extinguishing.  Doesn’t your family deserve that level of protection?

“I have been sold on SIPs and Thermocore from the beginning of this home building project.  Your company is very well respected.  I know my new home will be better built because we specified Thermocore panels. I appreciate your engagement and effort. I have nothing by the highest respect for your company and how it is changing the building process in the USA.”

-Brad Southern, Homeowner and CEO of Louisiana Pacific Lumber Company

“Thermocore's 4″ thick panel is worth its weight in gold. We were going to have to pay $3,500 for window jamb extensions with all the other panel systems. Thermocore offered the best of both worlds—the highest R-value and being able to use standard window jambs.”

- Gus K., Vermont

A Word From the Client:

“We had $11,000 in added lumber on our last EPS panel project not to mention the added labor. We were fooled by low panel prices. By the time we were done getting the panels to a working state, we were three weeks into it. Thermocore's price seemed higher BUT they included everything. When we looked back, Thermocore's price was definitely cheaper and a lot less work.”

- Dan B., Texas
