KB Homes has announced its intention to add LP’s TechShield Radiant Barrier roof sheathing at no additional cost in new homes built across the United States. The company is the first residential home builder to make this a standard feature in all its new community homes.
KB Homes also installs low-E windows, Energy Star appliances and programmable thermostats as standard features in its homes.
LP TechShield is made of a thin sheet of aluminum laminated to oriented strand board (OSB). The product helps block heat in the roof sheathing from entering the attic, reducing the overall heat load and energy costs.
“KB Homes prides itself on being an innovator among its competitors, continually looking for new technologies that will benefit our home buyers,” said Dan Bridleman, the company’s VP supply chain and technology.
