LP Techshield and attic antennas

I am about to move into a home that is being built. It has a material on the roof called LP Techshield it is a metallic coating on the roof that helps a ton with heat.

I however have read this can negatively effect reception with my antenaa. Do any of you have any experience with this stuff and how worried should I be?

It will depend on how close to the transmitters you are. See the sticky note: NOTE: Put YOUR LOCATION in the TITLE of ALL antenna threads & TVFOOL info in 1st post

Meanwhile, here is an existing thread, albeit old, on the subject: In Attic Antenna and Radiant Shield Roofing(TechShield)?

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.

Move your antenna to the outside, on top of your roof if you have problems with your attic antenna. We have a metal roof and have had no reception issues at all with our antenna mounted on the roof.

If the aluminized coating is not grounded, would one be able to connect a wire to it, and use it as a giant antenna?

6 TV's in the house on FiOS and we only pay $4.99/month to connect them all!!! Power to the CableCard and WMC7!!!
