How Radiant Barrier Roof Sheathing Tackles Heat

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.

Why Do Homes Need Radiant Barrier Roof Sheathing?

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.


What Does Radiant Barrier Roof Sheathing Do?

Blocks Attic Heat

Whether under a metal roof or under shingles, radiant barrier sheathing blocks heat from emitting into a home’s attic, keeping temperatures down.

Meets Energy Codes

Radiant barrier roof decking products help builders meet green building codes that encourage energy efficiency.

Provides Reliable Roof Decking

In addition to blocking heat, radiant barrier roof sheathing offers a durable, strong roof panel to complete your build.

Using Radiant Barrier Roof Decking

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.
