Insulated Roof Panels by RAYCORE Make A Home in Eleuthera, Bahamas
Insulated Roof Panels for Surfer's Island Home
Tom McDevitt, an avid surfer, just knew that a home on Eleuthera was for him a “must-have”. In preparations for construction of his new home, Tom came to RAYCORE in the spring of 2011 in search of a good roof insulation solution for his planned island home. Needing a product to be hurricane resistant, meeting standards of withstanding 160 mph winds, RAYCORE Insulated Roof Panels, commonly referred to as SIPs, was just the answer. In May of 2012, Tom's new home dream came true.
Insulated Roof Panels are Lightweight and Easy to Handle
RAYCORE's structural insulated roof panels are lightweight at less than 42 pounds easily handled by one or two persons. RAYCORE supplied Tom with its 3-1/2” R-26 polyurthane insulated roof panel. In an effort to stand up to Eleuthera’s sever termite problems, Tom requested his roof panels be manufactured with the optional pressure-treated studs. For added strength against gale-force winds, Tom also chose the 16 inch on-center studs. These lightweight, 4 foot wide by 8 foot long SIPs panels, weighing only 42 pounds, were easy to handle while hand placing them on the third-story roof, perched high overlooking the expansive island coast.

All About Eleuthera, Bahamas
In the Bahamas, beautiful Eleuthera , the word meaning “freedom”, is an island paradise located 50 miles east of Nassau. The long, slender island runs north and south, approximately 110 miles long and averaging a mile wide, and is home to around 8,000 residents. Surrounded by warm and crystal clear water, the eastern shoreline is a mixture of cliffs, bluffs and white-sand crescent shaped beaches. The western side too offers amazing bluff views and beautiful beaches, but it overlooks the shallower and clear blue water of the Great Bahama Banks. Drawn to the area by the beauty of its water, beach-combing, fishing and surfing are activities that fill resident’s days.RAY-CORE Structural Insulated Panels SIPs are proud to be a part of Tom’s new home in this beautiful island paradise.
