Eagle Panel Systems offers the log home industry a method to quickly finish their log shell with roof panels applied directly to the rafters or purlins, combining an interior finish of Eastern White Pine Tongue & Groove, INTEGROOVE® expanded polystyrene insulation, structural members (if required) and exterior sheathing, all in one step. With Eagle Panels coming in lengths up to 24' long and in thicknesses of up to 12" with the option of two rafters laminated inside the panels, Eagle Panel Systems SIPs can cover just about any span and loading conditions, even in the most extreme climates. Another bonus with this system is that the eve and gable overhangs come pre-finished with the pine tongue and groove, saving an extra step and eliminating some of the high work usually associated with scaffolding or ladders. The Eastern White Pine panels are delivered on an Eagle Panel Systems truck directly to the job site as soon as the log shell is up. And with the crane already in place from the log erection, the roof panels can then be immediately applied to the log home and your roof could be on in a matter of days instead of weeks that is typical for a site built roof.
Your local builder can easily install the Eagle Panel Systems roof assembly. The labor savings alone make this method cost competitive and the foam core insulation values (up to R-49) provide the means to super-insulate the roof and slow the heat loss to a trickle compared to a fiberglass insulated cathedral roof.
Eagle Panel Systems also manufactures stress skin wall panels for the gable ends that provide exterior sheathing, insulation, studs (if required) and interior sheathing to continue the exceptional thermal efficiency found in the roof panels to the walls as well. Some people prefer to build an insulated log home using our structural insulated panels with an exterior of log siding that will provide you with a home that cannot be distinguish from a log home with superior thermal performance and no settling or shrinkage to take into consideration. Eagle Panel Systems can provide you with a complete roof system that maximizes thermal efficiency, gives you a beautiful Eastern White Pine ceiling and after installation, ready for roofing, keeping the dry in time down to an absolute minimum.
