Home Extensions from PCL

Thinking of an Home Extension? Don’t want to be burdened with the disruption and time required? Then we have the solution!
Our SIPs Extensions (Structurally Insulated Panel System) can make your extension dream come true! Whilst traditional construction methods rely on bricks and blocks, or a conventional timber frame, SIPs can provide both structure and insulation in one. The panels consist of an insulating polystyrene core sandwiched between two structural facings. A SIPs Home Extensions (see our SIPs gallery here) can be used to create fast-track highly energy-efficient extensions. Your extension will be built quicker, be cost-effective, and less labour intensive with less disruption to your life. This SIPs Home Extension system can revolutionise the way you think about extending your home.

Manufactured under controlled conditions at our factory, our SIPs Home Extensions have a high strength to weight ratio allowing large sections of your extension to be fitted at once, speeding up the time required on site. The Structurally Insulated Panels (SIPs) are typically 1220mm wide and can be as long as 5.1 metres in length to suit each individual project. These are Structurally Insulated Panels (SIPs) connected with a unique jointing system for walls and roofs. SIPs are fabricated using timber from sustainable sources. SIPs use less timber than typical timber frames and are one of the most economical and eco-friendly forms of construction.

SIPs Home Extensions, through their strength and ease of connection, offer more versatility than other construction materials, allowing possibilities beyond the conventional; such as sloping roof panels creating an open space that when utilised, properly maximises any extension building.

You can also choose the exterior look you want. Brick slips tend to me the most used, but cedral cladding is also very popular and there is a selection of colours and styles to choose from. Or if you prefer to render the outside that again can be painted in a range of colours.

So, what are you waiting for? Let PCL Building Products build your Home Extension with Structurally Insulated Panels (SIPs)…..

“So Good, Next Door Got Theirs Done Too!”

How We Do It

Day one, the ground is made good, prepared and the Sole Plates are laid.

SIP panels are erected. These comprise of 2 layers of oriented strand board (OSB) with a core of premium carbon treated expanded polystyrene which is sandwiched in between and provides the insulation.

The roof frames are installed and a waterproof membrane is then encased around the building which keeps your extension watertight.

Any windows are typically installed at this point. The roof boards are fitted and waterproofed and the external structure is fitted with Forma Boards ready for the Brick Slips to be installed.

The roof is completed with your choice of tiles. The installation of the Brick Slips now begins. We have a wide range of finishing options available for your extension so we’re confident we can closely match your home.

The installation of the Brick Slips is completed and this is then pointed to give it both the look and feel of a brick build. Our SIPs extensions can be completed in the fraction of a time taken to build one with conventional bricks and with minimum fuss.
