SIPs and metal insulated roof panels with Shoer Insulated Panel Systems
Whether it’s a residential or commercial project, insulated roof panels are the smart choice. That’s because the most costly expenditure after construction costs is usually monthly heating and cooling costs. With that in mind we offer a choice of roofing systems that have strength, durability, and energy efficiency in mind.
SIPs Insulated Roof Panels
Like SIPs wall panels, SIPs roof panels have a nearly continuous foam core glued between two layers of Oriented Strand Board (OSB). This results in an extremely strong roof system. Since the insulation is incorporated into each SIPs panel they are very energy efficient. As a result, there is no need for other insulation in the attic. This also allows for insulated vaulted ceilings. Shingles, metal panels, or other roofing material is then applied directly to the SIPs panels according to the manufacturers specifications.
Standard thicknesses of SIPs roof panels range from 4-1/2″ – 10-1/4″ thick. As a result, R-values of your roof will range from R-18 up to R-42.
SIPS roof construction typically provides a stronger more energy efficient roof system than that of conventional roof construction. Each panel can be 4 foot to 24 foot in length and up to 48 inches wide. They are typically 8 1/4” thick but can be thicker or thinner according to your project and individual needs.

ISSR (Insulated Standing Seam Roof) Panels
Insulated Standing Seam roof panels will give you the look of a traditional metal roof system. However, that look comes with the added benefit of an insulating foam core for excellent “R” values. This translates into future energy cost savings. This Standing Seam roof panel offers maximum protection against the elements as well as protection against damage from foot traffic. When compared to other metal roof panels these are highly energy efficient and easy to install.
