What is Radiant Barrier Roof Sheathing – and Why is it Important to You?

So you’re building a new home. Why on earth would you care what type of board goes UNDERNEATH your roof shingles???

Energy efficiency is why!

If you’ve ever stood in a newly framed home with regular OSB (oriented strand board) roof sheathing on a 90 degree summer day vs. one framed with LP TechShield roof sheathing, you will notice a significant difference in temperature.

Our friends over at LP Building Solutions have created this product that blocks up to 97% of the radiant heat in the roof panel from emitting into a home’s attic, reducing an attic’s temperature by up to 30° F. It installs just like conventional OSB so it doesn’t affect the look of your home or require any additional labor.

In addition, the radiant barrier roof sheathing contributes to a lower HERS (Home Energy Rating System) score which directly correlates to lower energy bills. And we all love lower bills!!
