Timber framing and SIPs are a natural match. The beauty of natural wood framing combined with the superior energy efficiency only a SIP can bring. Like most things in life, not all SIPs are created equal. Thermocore’s Structural Insulated Panels with a polyurethane foam core gives you the highest R-value per inch, combined with more standard features than any other panels system. Features like complete CNC cutting of doors and windows and full electrical boxes and conduit are installed custom to your plan. The highest R-value per inch along with money saving standard features make Thermocore the smart choice to enclose your timber frame home.

Benefits of Using Thermocore’s Panel Systems for Timber Frames

In addition, Thermocore custom-manufactures structural insulated panels based on the specifics of your design, whether that’s complete timber frame or a hybrid. Get as creative as you want. Thermocore takes your plans and develops a SIPs package custom to your needs.

Looking for added benefits?

Thermocore’s pre-cut SIPs virtually eliminate waste at the worksite and go up faster to protect your structure. With electrical boxes and conduit already installed in the insulated wall and roof panels, electrical work costs less and goes quicker. Choose Thermocore’s four-inch structural insulated wall panels to accommodate standard window and door jambs and you’ll keep the price of your homes competitive with standard construction methods.

Why settle for less than maximum energy efficiency and the highest-quality enclosure?  Thermocore is the best thing next to your frame.
