Increase HVAC Efficiency

Save money on your energy bills and reduce the strain on your HVAC system during extreme temperatures throughout the year with LP®TechShield® Radiant Barrier Roof Sheathing. Made with renewable resources, this barrier is installed beneath your roof and reduces the amount of energy your HVAC system uses by blocking radiant heat caused by sunlight from entering your home. Because it helps block radiant heat from coming in, LP®TechShield® Radiant Roof Sheathing can reduce air conditioning bills by up to 17% and attic temperatures by up to 30°F!
