Huber’s Radiant Barrier roof sheathing is a basic Zip System sheathing panel with a radiant barrier on the underside that reflects radiant heat to keep it out of the attic space. The Department of Energy estimates that radiant barriers can reduce cooling costs by as much as 10% in warm, sunny climates. Approximate cost for a 4x8 panel should be around $19 for the 7/16 thickness and $22 for the 1/2-inch. Huber Engineered Woods, 800.933.9220, zipsystem.com
