LP® TechShield® Featured in LEED Home of the Year

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) has selected its outstanding single-family LEED home of the year. The structure, a four bedroom, three-and-a-half bath, 3,400 square foot house in Kailua, Hawaii, features LP® TechShield® Radiant Barrier Sheathing.

The LEED Gold house is the first in the state to be certified under the latest version of the LEED for Homes program, and one of the first Hawaiian homes to qualify under Energy Star version 3.

The builder, Mokulua High Performance Builder, emphasized the need for a radiant barrier exterior in the home’s design, given the region’s warm climate and abundant UV radiation. LP TechShield was selected as the roofing solution for the sustainable home.

LP TechShield is America’s original, number-one radiant barrier sheathing, working to reduce monthly cooling costs by blocking up to 97% of the heat from entering the structure via a patented VaporVents™ technology. To learn more about LP TechShield, visit
