Radiant Barrier Plywood - Do It Yourself and Save

Radiant barrier plywood can easily be made yourself by simply stapling our Ultima-FOIL directly to the OSB or plywood decking during a new roof construction.


Many building supply companies offer a plywood or OSB (oriented strand board) sheathing product with a radiant barrier already laminated to one side of the board.  This radiant barrier plywood is generally used for new roofing applications with the reflective siding facing into the attic space.  Felt and shingles are then applied over the top of the roof decking as usual.

It's much easier for construction and roofing companies to install a radiant barrier along with a new roof this way because it combines two installation steps into one thereby saving time:

  1. installation of the radiant barrier and then,
  2. installation of the roof decking.

However, purchasing these pre-laminated radiant barrier plywood products are very expensive.  

We offer a simple alternative to radiant barrier osb products which can easily be done yourself:
