Step 2:

View the DIY Network’s FRAMING episode to discover what the best materials are for framing your building project. The Deconstruction show gives its perspective on “Is it better to frame with two by fours or prefabricated SIPS?” Featuring Premier SIPS, this 20 minute episode shows how our SIPS are made and then put through some impressive stress tests to demonstrate just how strong Premier SIPS really are.

Step 3:

You’ve grasped the basics, now view our detailed SIPS virtual training modules for thorough SIPS basics and technical design overviews for you to use in your Premier SIPS design/build projects.
