NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Feb 12, 2018)–LP Building Products, the leader in high-performance building solutions, recently added a new case study to its online product literature portfolio. The case study features Zicka Homes, the largest custom home builder in Cincinnati, and its use of the new LP Legacy® premium sub-flooring. In July 2017, Zicka Homes President Julie Zicka used LP Legacy sub-flooring on a 3,300 sq. ft. custom home. Though it was the first time she’d used the product, she was impressed with the moisture resistance, ease of installation, durability and reliable warranty. 

LP Legacy sub-flooring uses Gorilla Glue Technology® for one of the industry’s strongest, stiffest sub-floors.The homeowner, Ted Fitz, is the Vice President of Research and Development for Gorilla Glue Company, a leading manufacturer of high quality adhesives designed for the toughest projects and repairs. The company’s success is built on Gorilla Glue’s incredible strength and waterproof hold. The same adhesive technology that makes Gorilla Glue perfect for The Toughest Jobs on Planet Earth® also makes LP Legacy sub-flooring the stiffest and one of the strongest you can buy.

“Before we decided to build our home with LP Legacy sub-flooring, my first job as head of R&D at Gorilla Glue was to make sure the product was worthy of the Gorilla name, which is something we take very seriously,” said Fitz. “We collaborated closely with LP on testing and on-going quality, and Gorilla Glue is proud to work with LP on this product.”

One of Zicka’s main requirements in a sub-flooring is that it has a substantial warranty. LP Legacy sub-flooring carries a unique “Covered Until It’s Covered” No-Sand Warranty, as well as a Lifetime Limited Warranty that lasts as long as the home. For complete details, see the LP Legacy Lifetime Limited Warranty.

Zicka completed the home in December 2017, and it was her first time using any LP product. She is now considering using LP Legacy sub-flooring on another project to see how it performs. “I will consider using it, especially on the bigger houses where it doesn’t get dried in within a month.
