Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Peace Landfill Junk
Just purchased this sheet less than 4 hrs ago and it's already coming apart. I didn't notice it until I started painting it. It did NOT look like this in the store. In fact, I had to dig through several culls sheets to find a descent looking sheet. I'm 20 miles from the store, which really makes it frustrating. Definitely should've listened to other guy who had this SAME PROBLEM. Must be ANOTHER BAD BATCH! Apparently, the fluid weakens the glue making it a piece of junk for the landfill. Should've just got a regular piece since I painting it for weather protection anyways.

Bought this a week ago, already has black mold, getting warped, and falling apart. Can't withstand outdoor elements at all.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WoodTreater plywood delamination and holes
Delamination was not from treating, but from plywood manufacturer not using enough or evenly applied glues. The glues used are rated for exterior and some times it comes to us like that prior to the treating process. Kinda like not buying a car built on Friday or Monday. Yes, poor QC on manufacturer, not treating.
As far as hole in plywood or lumber. This is a QC issue. To test the lumber for proper chemical content it has to be drilled and sampled. Plugs are put into the holes after they are drilled. Can't do that on plywood. If you find treated lumber with plugs it has been tested and meets required levels. (Those without holes have also been tested, but that particular board was not drilled).
Hope that helps to address some of the concerns posted.

I ordered online and got a sheet that had 4 holes drilled in it and was not built right - It ws for a not important project so I used it. Will not load up an online order without reviewing all the products again. POOR customer service.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JohnnyinPearland delaminated before I got to install it
Home depot is selling the worst quality building materials i have ever seen. I bought 4 sheets of this material and 2 out of 4 delaminated and the other 2 split at least halfway through (2 of the 4 layers formed a split) while drying in my garage (they were soaking wet when I bought them and not ready for installing).
I will never buy materials from home depot again... there are much better lumber yards in Pearland.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Doresoom Pricey for Lots of Warp
I recently used two of these sheets on a 2x6 framed foundation for a 7'x7.5' shed. When I went to purchase the plywood, I was shocked at the price tag. Last time I bought an untreated sheet of 23/32 plywood for building a workbench in my garage, it was under $20 a sheet!
There weren't very many straight sheets near the top of the stack, so I just picked the two nearest the top that were least warped. Both sheets were cupped in both directions. I made sure that when I got them home, I laid them out flat with the convex side up so if they dried a little in the sun the cup wouldn't get any worse. They screwed down straight enough to the frame, but before I sunk all the screws into them, they were bowed enough that I could put my full weight (~140 lbs) in the middle of the sheet and bounce up and down on it without bottoming out.
I really expected something higher quality for the price.
