Do sigma and pi bonds have a different strength or is the main significant difference the way in which they overlap?

A sigma bond has increased overlapping, and similarly greater strength, than a pi bond. But, the combination of a pi and sigma bond is stronger than either of the bonds by themselves. Since the pi bond is weaker though, a double bond doesn't necessarily mean the bond is twice as strong...
