SIPS vs ICFs
What is more economical and energy efficient for climates like northern Minnesota? I have read that ICFs are best for the foundation work. SIPS are easier to install. Assuming the home owner is the builder, are SIPS or ICFs a better choice if the goals are ease of installation, cost and energy efficiency?
Thanks for your suggestions.
