What is CDX Plywood:

Sheets of Plywood made out of CDX are made using panels of wood which are bound together. This is where strength and stiffness which are used for subflooring jobs and underlayment are required. Wall as well as roofing materials projects for the do it yourselfer. CDX plywood, which is available at Rosebank Wholesale Lumber Ltd Stores in Toronto, can be manufactured with panels (layers) of narrow sheets of lumber/timber.  Also, when bound in a rotating fashion of grains will gain in strength and stiffness of our final panels while providing superior dimensional stability resistance to warping.

Comparison of 3ply CDX to 5ply CDX for your Home Roofing Project

A question has been asked of me, as to why anyone would buy 3ply CDX plywood in comparison to 5ply CDX plywood. 3ply CDX costs more than 5ply CDX plywood. It is not the greatest material out there as far as home improvement projects go and, in particular, roofing projects. Some issues that many people have with 3ply CDX, outside of the higher price, include the fact that 3ply CDX Plywood does not hold its rigidity or strength in the moister. And sometimes the lamination will fade when it gets wet, which could cause issues for your home improvement project, especially if you used this 3ply on a particular roofing project. However, 3ply CDX plywood is easier to kerf (curving the plywood board for a round application) so that it would give you one benefit over 5ply CDX plywood. If you have to make a choice, a good bet might be to go with an OSB Board Plywood (oriented strand board).  It is actually stronger and more durable than either 3ply CDX board, or 5ply CDX plywood.
