Why Use Plywood?

As with any building material, plywood has both advantages and disadvantages that should be understood before use.

 

Advantages

The layers that make up plywood are intentionally glued together at alternating right angles. This is what gives it both strength and durability. This cross-graining also reduces the chances of the wood splitting when nailing at the edges, and it makes the wood resistant to warping, cracking, and twisting. The way plywood is made also ensures a consistent strength across the entire length of the wood.

 

In addition to its strength, plywood is less expensive than similar boards made of full wood species, which makes it an ideal construction planking material.

 

Disadvantages

While plywood’s layered property has many advantages, it actually also makes the wood porous and susceptible to water damage if exposed to leaks over time. Plywood becomes heavy when wet and should be covered if left outside to reduce the risk of absorption.
