Commercial and residential property owners want to invest in technologies and materials that are going to stand the test of time. Every piece of a new or renovation project needs to be measured on how it will hold up during construction and through the wear and tear of daily use. 
Warmboard panels are rated Exposure 1 by the Engineered Wood Association. This trademark and certification provides customers with the confidence and peace of mind they need to invest in radiant floor heating systems from Warmboard. The APA trademark assures customers that the products have met specific manufacturing and product performance standards and can be trusted. 
Radiant floor heating panels from Warmboard can handle exposure to rain, snow and ice. This is because the aluminum top surface of Warmboard acts as "built in" weather barrier that makes the material more impervious to the elements and precipitation than standard Exposure 1 plywood. Because construction is often done out in the open and supplies are very often left out to the elements, it's important that they meet manufacturing and durability standards set by industry experts. 
During the construction process, Warmboard panels can be walked on, bracing can be nailed off and sill plates can be nailed directly to them. This is a high-quality product that can be treated like any other plywood subfloor, while providing superior services. 
Construction professionals who are looking for the next great, reliable product may want to consider switching over to using Warmboard panels. The manufactured wood offers substantial benefits in comparison to traditional planks and are a sound investment for construction that is intended to last.
