I am planning a new home and looking into sips for roof wall on 2nd floor and some cathedral ceilings on the 1st. On builder said after r15 insulation is overkill and we don't need the r30. I feel it is a superior method and am pursuing with another builder who is more receptive. Do you have an opinion on use of panels and the ones for cathedrals already have the TG on them so that saves time and labor as well as material. Also checking out Geo Thermal vs regular central AC as we are in Florida. What ideas and thoughts do you have on that.? the idea it is all in one insulation drywall and framing is a neat concept.
