When people think about their roof, they usually think of it as structure designed to quickly move rain away from the house. While this is true 1% of the time, the other 99% of the time your roof is providing solar shading. On a 90 degree Kansas day, your roof shingles will reach 160 degrees, your attic will reach 130-140 degrees (heat that will eventually sink into your house), while the living envelope of the house is set at 72 degrees.
That’s a tall task for the air conditioner.
By installing a radiant barrier, 97% of the sun’s radiant heat never makes it into the house at all. This upgrade pays for itself in 3-4 years. We think it makes a lot of sense.
LP® TechShield® Radiant Barrier Sheathing is designed to lower a home’s attic temperature. These panels have been installed in more than 1.5 million homes in the United States. Product features include:
Blocks up to 97% of the radiant heat in the roof panel from emitting into a home’s attic, reducing an attic’s temperature by up to 30° F.
Available in warm climate regions throughout the United States.
Patented VaporVents™ technology with post-lamination incising.
Installs like conventional roof sheathing, requiring no additional labor.
May help builders qualify for Green Building credits, energy rebates and lower HERS scores.

Backed by a long-term warranty so you can build with security and confidence.
