Advantages of LP Prostruct Flooring – Bowie
Let’s talk about the best option for your portable structure floor in Bowie. The standard in the shed industry is plywood. However, many shed builders have switched to certain osb materials such as Advantech flooring. OSB stands for Oriented Strand Board and it can come in many different looks and qualities. In contrast, Silver Creek Structures chooses to protect your shed with LP Prostruct flooring in Bowie.
LP Prostruct is a subfloor like no other. It is a 3/4” or 5/8” thick tongue and groove flooring which is known for its stiffness and water resistance. When LP Prostruct and plywood are dipped into a die it only takes around 45 minutes for the die to soak through from top to bottom on the plywood. This will cause swelling, rotting, or delamination very quickly. The LP Prostruct however shows no signs of water penetration. When it comes to strength and stiffness LP Prostruct far surpasses its competitors.
When it comes to bending strength, LP Prostruct completely surpasses the competition in Bowie. This allows it to hold far more weight before any damage can occur to the panel.
PS 2 is a performance-based standard which defines the end use application of a wood-based panel, such as plywood, OSB or composite panels. It defines the requirements for the use of wood-based panels as structural components which are recognized throughout North America, including Bowie. Plywood and OSB products that are commonly used on storage sheds would meet this PS-2 standard.
LP Prostruct flooring was issued the Evaluation Service Report, certifying that it has endured a battery of testing protocols that measure and ensure greater and consistent levels of panel strength, and stiffness. When you see this on your shed floor let it remind you that you have purchased the best. LP Prostruct was given this classification by the International code council and is available to all who want to validate and qualify their products as having superior design properties.
BRINGING IT HOME!
A framing contractor told us a story of concerning AdvanTech when he was building a home for a client. A LP rep came to the jobsite and left a sample piece for him to observe and test. This contractor was simply not interested so he threw it over a mud puddle so they did not have to walk around the puddle. Because of unforeseen circumstances the job got put on hold for a year. He said that when he came back to complete the home, he noticed the piece of LP Prostruct that had been sitting outside in the mud for the past year. He picked it up, cut through it, and realized that it had no weather damage; in fact, outside of it being dirty, it seemed to still be in perfect condition. At that point, LP Prostruct became his only option.
We continually hear of the success stories of LP Prostruct, and it always gives us confidence that Silver Creek Structures is using the best possible flooring option on our structures. We hope that you can see the value in LP Prostruct flooring.
