When you give your client a home they can count on, the benefits go further than durability and a happy family. Your reputation and experience create the foundation for your business to grow. Here at Brand Vaughan Lumber, the builders we work with know that they can give clients the home they want (and save valuable time on installation) by using products that have been proven to deliver success. More than 1.5 million homes have been built using one such product: LP® TechShield® Radiant Barrier Sheathing.

During installation, LP TechShield’s innovative VaporVents™ technology helps the panels to dry more quickly from construction moisture than other types of sheathing, saving builders even more time on their project.
When you’re building a new home, your clients want an end result that’s going to perform efficiently, to reduce the impact on their utility bill.
Choosing materials that are tested for energy-efficiency can help you deliver a home that will impress. Many builders choose LP TechShield because it’s known to keep up to 97% of the radiant heat in the panel from the home’s attic, cooling it by as much as 30 degrees. LP TechShield sheathing can even help builders qualify for green building credits and energy rebates: Besides energy performance, the wood used in the panels is certified under the Sustainable Forestry Initiative.
LP TechShield is available in warm climate regions throughout the United States, such as Georgia, and comes in a number of available performance categories, depending on your project needs. These innovative panels are known for their dependability, and many homebuilders now make LP TechShield Sheathing panels a standard feature on their homes. The well-known homebuilding firm, Shaddock Homes, places an emphasis on energy-efficient and cost-effective homes. According to Director of Purchasing, Bill 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. “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.”
