All sheathing on the SIP panel walls are either James Hardie Cement board, the recognized leader in waterproof siding products or Zip Board sheathing by Huber.
Hardie board is American made, pre-primed and meets the International code for flame spread and moisture penetration. This makes an excellent lifetime maintenance-free exterior.
The Zip system is used on the exterior of the SIP panel when the design requires horizontal siding and is the top of the line wall, floor and roof sheathing, due to its waterproof exterior surface. Quality builders know this product by name, as it will not tolerate damage to wood due to our tropical weather. It is perfect for south Florida climate. It is Formaldehyde-free, unlike standard OSB sheathing and meets the stringent FGBC building standards codes.
The unique exterior finish of the SIP system skins puts the other builders on notice that Fox Construction, using New Panel Home SIP panels, is serious about our achieving the highest green standards.
