Bransom Homes Makes the Switch to LP® FlameBlock® Sheathing

LP Building Products recently completed a new case study featuring Texas-area builder Bransom Homes and their use of LP® FlameBlock® Fire-Rated OSB Sheathing.

The team at Bransom Homes was introduced to LP FlameBlock sheathing from a local LP sales representative in a meeting alongside the City of Burleson Code Department and local supplier Quarles Lumber.

After hearing about the performance and structural benefits of LP FlameBlock sheathing, Bransom Homes Superintendent Jake McWhirter and his team decided to make the switch. LP FlameBlock sheathing was used in the interior walls, exterior walls and roof deck of 16 townhome units in Heritage Village, a new quaint community of homes conveniently located in the thriving area of Old Town Burleson.

According to McWhirter, the job went smoother and faster with the use of LP FlameBlock sheathing. “The LP FlameBlock sheathing goes in just as fast as sheet rock. The fact that it can be used in the roof deck makes the job so much easier.”

The local code official was also very impressed with the product and asked that an LP FlameBlock sheathing representative reach out to another local builder to promote the product. The code official requested a lunch-and-learn to introduce the product to other code officials. According to LP Marketing Development Manager Randy Trussell, “The code official was so impressed with LP FlameBlock Sheathing he will begin to suggest it where applicable in Burleson.”
