Timber Products Co.'s radiant barrier foil softwood plywood panel was named to "The Builder Favorite 50" list in Builder magazine's April 2012 issue.
This annual compilation of subscriber's product preferences named Timber Products' softwood plywood panel as a favorite new building product introduced in 2011. The list is compiled by the magazine’s editorial team from reader service responses that detail product preferences across the market, and Timber Products says its barrier panels received more inquiries than any other editorial/product mention in Builder last year.
“Energy efficiency is a priority for many homebuilders today and a quality roofing panel that is pre-wrapped in foil helps set the foundation for an energy-saving home,” said Roger Rutan, vice president of Timber Products Co. “We are thrilled that the readers of Builder Magazine responded so well to our panels and that they are looking for products that help them build environmentally conscious homes.”
Introduced in mid-2011, Timber Products' radiant barrier foil softwood plywood panels are designed specifically for roof construction. The panels help reduce attic temperatures and can significantly contribute to lower monthly utility costs, the company says, and a pre-applied foil wrap on the structural softwood plywood panels acts as a barrier that blocks 97 percent of radiant heat.
As a result, Timber Products (www.timberproducts.com) says homeowners can expect attic temperatures of up to 30 degrees cooler than normal in warm weather months and lower monthly energy costs all year. The panels are designed specifically for warm weather climates such as California and the Sun Belt states.
