LP Building Solutions (LP), a leading manufacturer of high-performance building products, today announced a significant expansion in its LP NovaCore® Thermal Insulated Sheathing line.

With the latest variations, builders now have three foam thickness options: 1/2-inch foam (R3), 1-inch foam (R5) and 1-1/2-inch foam (R7). Featuring cutting-edge Owens Corning® FOAMULAR® NGX™ XPS foam, these panels can strengthen thermal resistance and help shield homes against fluctuating temperatures. This provides potential energy savings for homeowners.

LP NovaCore sheathing’s installation mirrors traditional OSB structural sheathing and utilizes standard 2x4 spacing so that builders can seamlessly integrate these panels into their projects without the need for extensive framing adjustments. This streamlined approach enhances construction efficiency to help save time and money.

“Expanding our range of insulated sheathing reflects LP’s dedication to meeting the evolving needs of builders,” said LP NovaCore Product Manager Billy Webb. “It’s important to us to find ways to make their lives easier, and that includes helping them meet new insulation requirements without sacrificing more time for complex or additional steps. We strive to simplify the construction process while addressing the escalating demand for energy-efficient solutions. We’re delivering on our promise to Build a Better World, no matter the region or climate.”

LP NovaCore sheathing is among the few insulated panel products designed for high performance at extreme temperatures. The R-value measures thermal resistance and how well a particular material keeps heat from moving into or out of a structure. LP NovaCore sheathing is made with Owens Corning’s continuously extruded polystyrene (XPS), which provides continuous insulation without the long-term R-value deterioration associated with other foam insulation products. By providing varying levels of insulation, LP empowers building professionals to meet diverse national building codes and certifications, including LEED®, ENERGY STAR® and Green Building Standard ICC 700-2008.
