LP Techshield

LP TechShield sheathing, available from LP Corporation, is a highly efficient solution for improving a home's energy efficiency. This innovative sheathing blocks up to 97% of radiant heat transfer, resulting in a potential reduction of up to 30ºF in attic temperature. With a proven track record, LP TechShield sheathing offers a cost-effective way to enhance a home's energy performance and achieve improved HERS scores. Its unique features include a durable layer of aluminum with patented VaporVents™ technology, which prevents moisture build-up before, during, and after construction. Additionally, the OSB substrate of the sheathing promotes breathability without creating a vapor barrier. LP TechShield sheathing is an excellent choice for single-family homes seeking enhanced energy efficiency. 

Included on single family homes only, not available on attached homes.

OX-IS Exterior Sheathing

OX-IS Exterior Sheathing offers an exceptional air barrier that significantly reduces air infiltration compared to standard engineered pressed wood (OSB) and synthetic House Wrap used by other builders. With air exchange performance 15-20% better, OX-IS Exterior Sheathing effectively minimizes thermal bridging to the interior walls, enhancing energy efficiency. By providing an uninterrupted barrier installed outside the studs, this exterior continuous insulation, like OX-IS, prevents thermal bridging and reduces thermal loss. As a result, builders can deliver higher R-values, enabling homeowners to maintain a comfortable interior temperature while optimizing energy savings. OX-IS Exterior Sheathing is a reliable solution that maximizes both comfort and cost-effectiveness.
