NASHVILLE, Tenn. (September 19, 2017) – LP Building Products, the leader in high-performance building solutions, is answering the call for tougher sub-flooring with the launch of LP Legacy, APA rated* with the highest bending stiffness and as one of the strongest sub-floor panels in the industry.

Packed with more resin, wax, and wood strands and made with Gorilla Glue Technology, LP Legacy engineered sub-floor boasts superior moisture resistance that prevents edge swell. As a result, LP Legacy carries a class-leading “Covered Until It’s Covered” no-sand warranty, as well as a Lifetime Limited Warranty that lasts as long as the home.

Each wood strand in LP Legacy panels is coated with resins using Gorilla Glue Technology to ensure maximum moisture resistance. The resins bond wood fibers at the molecular level for premium performance. The panel's high density makes it ideal for hardwood floors, tile applications, and homes that may be exposed to the elements for longer periods during construction.

"Backed by LP's 44 years of manufacturing experience, LP Legacy is a complete sub-floor solution whose premium performance in wet, harsh environments provides building pros with peace of mind until each house is closed in," says Jim Abbott, Director, OSB/EWP Sales of LP Building Products. "What's more, our exclusive alliance with Gorilla Glue allows builders to promote a high-profile brand recognized by homeowners for its toughness and durability."

Along with its moisture resistance, LP Legacy sub-flooring's strength, stiffness, and density translate into exceptional fastener holding and a solid feel underfoot. Less deflection ensures better performance of the finished materials, including hardwoods, reducing the likelihood of nail pops or movement over time.

Other features include RainChannel® notches on 4-foot panel ends to promote drainage, a unique, easy-to-install tongue-and-groove with a flat profile, and pre-printed fastener marks for precise installation.
