Plywood and Sheathing
Plywood is graded by standards set by the American Plywood Association, (also known as APA) and is given a three-letter designation: a grade for the veneer on the face (referred to as the best side), a grade for the veneer on the back (referred to as the worst side) and an X or I designation to indicate use for outdoors (X) or indoors (I). In addition, plywood suitable for structural purpose is marked accordingly.
This plywood is smooth on one side which is suitable for painting and exterior use. We stock 4x8 sheets in five different thicknesses 1/4", 11/32", 15/32", 19/32" and 23/32".
Smooth, sanded, surface; more repaired defects than A-Grade and potential for small knots up to 1/4" across.
Construction grade plywood C-D (commonly referred to as CDX plywood) is great for structural use but not suited to be finish material.
We have 4x8 sheets of CDX plywood in 15/32", 19/32" and 23/32" thicknesses in stock.
OSB (ORIENTED STRAND BOARD)
OSB is glued and pressed, but is stronger than particle board because it's made with larger pieces of wood, the strands of which are reversed for each layer. It provides support for construction, snow and wind loads and backing for attaching exterior facing materials such as siding, roof shingles or underlayment in double-layer floors. OSB can be used in all applications where you would use C-D grade plywood.
We have 4x8 sheets in 7/16", 15/32", and 5/8" thicknesses; 4x9 sheets in 7/16" thickness; and 4x10 sheets in 7/16" thickness in stock.
This is an engineered wood product made from wood particles, such as wood chips, saw dust or sawmill shavings and a synthetic resin or other suitable binder, which is pressed and extruded. This is commonly used as an underlayment beneath a continuous sheet of vinyl floor covering. This product can be used for utility shelves, workshop projects, furniture, cabinets and more. This type of product does have a positive environmental impact!
We stock 4x8 sheets of particle board plywood in 1/2", 5/8", and 3/4" thicknesses.

FIRE TREATED PLYWOOD
Fire-retardant treated wood is material that has been pressure-impregnated with special chemicals to improve the performance of wood products in a fire. Fire treated wood reduces the amount of heat released during the initial stages of fire, and is intended for interior applications only.
We stock 4x8 sheets of CDX fire treated plywood in 1/2", 5/8" and 3/4" thicknesses. We also stock 4x8 sheets of BC fire treated plywood in 3/4" thickness.
