New size meets demand from contractors who prefer thicker sub-floor panels.
Nashville, TN (November 27, 2018) – LP Building Products is expanding its LP Legacy premium sub-flooring options with the addition of a 1-1/8" panel. The addition allows LP to meet growing demand for the new sub-flooring in markets where a 1-1/8" thickness is preferred, such as parts of the South and Northeast. The new panels boast the same high-performance properties and moisture resistance as original LP Legacy.
The wood strands of LP Legacy engineered sub-floor are coated with advanced waterproof resins using Gorilla Glue Technology®, resulting in superior moisture resistance that prevents edge swell. So much so that the panels come with a Covered Until It’s CoveredTM no-sand warranty, the best in the industry, as well as a Lifetime Limited Warranty that lasts as long as the home. The same adhesive technology that makes Gorilla Glue ideal for The Toughest Jobs on Planet Earth® also helps makes LP Legacy the stiffest and one of the strongest sub-floors you can buy. In fact, LP Legacy is APA rated* with the highest bending stiffness.
“Since the introduction of LP Legacy a year ago, we’ve seen tremendous, growing demand around the country,” says Marcelle Lacy, LP’s Sr. Corporate Brand Manager – OSB/EWP. “Adding a 1-1/8" panel to our lineup ensures new and existing customers who prefer the thicker size can also enjoy the superior performance that LP Legacy brings no matter the jobsite conditions.”
Packed with more resin, wax, and wood fiber, LP Legacy panels have a higher density ideal for use under hardwood floors and tile. The combination of strength, stiffness, and density contributes to better fastener holding and less deflection, for a more solid feel underfoot and less likelihood for nail pops and movement.
