GeoFaze SIPs provide
Precision, Speed, and Efficiency
in Texas and the Southwest.
STRUCTURAL INSULATED PANELS
Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) consist of a foam core (EPS) sandwiched by two engineered wood facings (OSB). SIPs are a high-performance building system for residential and commercial construction. SIPs are manufactured under factory controlled conditions and can be fabricated to fit nearly any building design. SIPs are the most airtight and well insulated building systems available. An airtight SIP building will use less energy to heat and cool, allow for better control over indoor environmental quality, and virtually eliminate construction waste. Structural Insulated Panels are used throughout Texas and the Southwest.
About GeoFaze SIPs
Precision is our first priority at GeoFaze SIPs. We distribute high quality Premier SIPs that create airtight building envelopes, and provide designers with increased flexibility in Texas and the Southwest. Premier is the leading manufacturer of SIPs in the United States and is a division of Insulfoam, a Carlisle Construction Materials company.
One stop shopping through GeoFaze SIPs. We offer installation services that include SIP installation and other framing. Our comprehensive SIP installation and framing services can include all framing materials including engineered floor systems, beams, insulated headers and posts.
Our mission is to design a precise, simple and sustainable building envelope. We work closely with our owners, designers, and builders to ensure that your building is straighter, stronger and more energy efficient.
Our SIPs are used in commercial and residential buildings. Their extraordinary strength makes them ideal for the increasingly severe weather our nation appears to be facing and along coastal areas where building codes are requiring ever more stringent strapping.
Our commitment to precision starts with our panel design. Before production, we produce a 3D model of your structure to ensure that your envelope will be strong and airtight.
From design to fabrication to delivery to installation, our project managers are dedicated to providing our customers with precise information including detailed pricing and precise 3D models and comprehensive shop drawings. Through technology we make sure you know exactly what to expect.
Your panels are formed and cut by one of the most experienced teams in the industry. Since most panel designs can often be fabricated in less than 2 weeks from approval, your SIPs are not only precise, they are also timely. On-Site SIP installation can reduce framing and insulation time by 50%.
SIP Installation & Framing
We can be provide full SIP installation and framing services. We can provide all framing materials including engineered floor systems, beams and posts, and insulated headers. If you want to self-perform, we can teach you our tricks of the trade. Either way, we will be there to support you.
GeoFaze SIPs is able to convert your stick designs into a stronger and tighter SIP envelope. We create a panel layout that will optimize your project.
GeoFaze SIPs will produce 3D models and shop drawings prior to manufacturing, ensuring precision installation.
SIP Installation & Framing
GeoFaze SIPs will handle the complete installation of the SIPs and all other framing under one contract and estimate, reducing your need to manage numerous sub-contractors.
Precise planning improves every aspect of the building process. Fewer site-made decisions are made and weather impacts the construction process less. Construction times run faster, and afterwards, the health and comfort of those using our structures are dramatically improved.

WE STACK UP
GeoFaze SIPs provide unique flexibility to achieve the goals of the most creative architects. GeoFaze worked closely with the architect, owner, engineer and builder to provide a comprehensive solution for this unique structure. Our custom CNC cut LVL splines within the SIPs provided the structure, allowing for the desired open, vaulted space inside.
Ease of Installation
Precisely cut panels makes for straight forward installation. Panels are raised into place, then plumbed, and finally secured and taped.
STRONG AND FLEXIBLE
Our SIPs have withstood 200pm tornadoes. Their strength and flexibility allow designers to achieve their goals without sacrificing structural integrity.
Compared to conventional stick framing, our SIPs are over 50% more energy efficient. Our SIP system has been recognized by national energy certifications, including LEED.
We Make Your Life Simple Architects
Our SIPs enable you obtain important industry recognized certifications such as LEED and EnergyStar. Up to 28 points can be achieved in new commercial buildings and renovation projects, good for a LEED Silver rating. New homes can achieve up to 50.5 points, resulting in a LEED Platinum rating.
Our Premier SIP system are tested in nationally recognized laboratories to show that we meet or exceed building codes and energy efficiency requirements. For 30 years, our SIPs have been the strongest, most reliable, and effective SIPs available anywhere.
We reduce framing time by over 50% compared to conventional stick construction. Pre-cut SIP panels arrive to your project site and are easily installed, resulting in quicker construction time and less mistakes. Get framed, insulated, and ready for trades in one step.
A life cycle analysis of Premier SIPs includes all steps of the manufacturing process from raw material extraction, production, and shipment. The major benefit is that the raw materials have low energy requirements to make them. Also, at the project site, up to 60% less framing lumber is wasted.
We provide a collaborative environment of support and expertise during each step of your project. We’re here to answer your questions and help you resolve challenges. Our library is the only one to have simplified descriptions of every published specification and compliance.
Premier SIP buildings are over 50% more energy efficient compared to conventional stick framing. This lowers your energy costs and environmental impacts while maintaining a high level of comfort for occupants. Achieving off-grid solutions have never been easier.
