Why LP TechShield Radiant Barrier Sheathing

As part of its commitment to creating more sustainable houses Shaddock Homes has relied on LP® TechShield® sheathing, the number one and original brand of radiant barrier sheathing, as an energy-efficient building solution on all of their homes since 2012.

Shaddock Homes’ Director of Purchasing Bill Pierce oversees material sourcing, contracting and budgeting, among other areas of operation. According to Pierce, LP TechShield sheathing helps contribute to a home’s value, livability and affordability. “At the end of the day when homeowners get their utility bill, it will be lower due in part to LP TechShield sheathing,” said Pierce.

As long-time loyalists to the LP TechShield brand, Shaddock Homes continues to choose LP TechShield sheathing over other radiant barrier sheathings on the market.

“LP TechShield sheathing holds the brand recognition. People know about the product,” said Pierce. “Compared to other radiant barriers, LP TechShield sheathing offers a reliability factor. We know we can count on it, and it is a very stable part of our construction process.”

In addition to the product performance, Pierce has been continually impressed with LP’s customer service in the field. “Our sales rep Steven Perez does an excellent job. He is always accessible.”

Shaddock Homes’ Energy Efficiency Package

According to their website, “The Shaddock Homes’ commitment to building energy-efficient and more cost-effective homes for clientele has never been more relevant than it is today.” As a part of its energy efficiency package, Shaddock Homes has included LP TechShield sheathing on all the homes it has built in the past six years.

The energy efficiency package is offered to all homeowners and includes other features such as tankless water heaters, 16 SEER HVAC units and R-38 insulation in the attic. Shaddock Homes educates homeowners on the importance of a home’s HERS (Home Energy Rating System) score and explains how certain home building materials—like LP TechShield sheathing—can contribute to a lowered score and the potential for lowered energy costs. 

Pierce continues to rely on LP TechShield sheathing for their roofing needs. “I would recommend the product to anybody in the homebuilding industry.”
