Once heat enters a home’s attic, it can sometimes be difficult for the home to maintain energy efficiency — which can often make attics uncomfortable and unfit for storage. Here’s how radiant barrier roof sheathing helps.
Even if a home feels cool due to air conditioning, the cooling system may be working much harder than it needs to. This could be due to high attic temperatures that skyrocket without protection from the sun’s radiant heat. Homes need radiant barriers to help protect against heat, potentially lowering cooling costs while creating a more comfortable atmosphere.
Whether under a metal roof or under shingles, radiant barrier sheathing blocks heat from emitting into a home’s attic, keeping temperatures down.
Radiant barrier roof decking products help builders meet green building codes that encourage energy efficiency.
In addition to blocking heat, radiant barrier roof sheathing offers a durable, strong roof panel to complete your build.
In many cases, a radiant barrier under a metal roof or under shingles will install just like regular roof sheathing. Often, no additional labor or installation time is required to help you get the heat protection you need for your project. Because it installs easily and without any new techniques to learn on the job, you get all the benefits of radiant barrier roof sheathing without much extra effort.
Proven to be the #1 radiant barrier roof sheathing on the market, LP TechShield Radiant Barrier boasts impressive energy efficiency, blocking up to 97% of radiant heat in roof panels. It can help lower attic temperatures by up to 30° F, and its VaporVents™ technology allows any trapped moisture to escape the panels during and after installation. Over 2 million homes in the United States are already taking advantage of this radiant barrier!
