The British Builder Battles Texas Heat With LP TechShield Radiant Barrier Sheathing

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Dec. 9, 2014)–LP Building Products recently added a new case study to its online product literature portfolio. The latest installment focuses on Texas-based contractor The British Builder’s decision to turn toLP® TechShield® Radiant Barrier Sheathing again and again because of its ability to stand up to the Texas heat while providing a cost-effective solution for homeowners. 

Since starting The British Builder in 2003, owner Wayne Goodall has operated his business with a “customer is king” mentality. His number one priority on any project is to satisfy the client, which he achieves with both the quality of his work as well as the quality products he uses on the job. For over a decade, LPTechShieldRadiant Barrier Sheathing has been helping to keep Goodall’s clients’ homes cooler and their utility bills lower.

Because Texas consistently sees 30 to 60 days of 100 degree plus temperatures every year, a product like LP TechShield Radiant Barrier Sheathing is a great investment for homeowners, Goodall says. LP TechShield sheathing helps keep attics cooler, lowers energy costs, and makes homes more comfortable by blocking radiant heat in the sheathing from entering the attic. 

“On a hot day, we’re getting up to 20 degrees cooler inside a home compared to outside temperatures, and that’s with no air conditioning,” said Goodall. “It’s a big difference. And it makes me feel good when a client moves into a home I’ve built for them and their utility costs are less than their neighbors. LP TechShield panels help me do a better job for my homeowners, and that’s invaluable to my business.”
