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.
