Answer: 
For a subfloor you need to use 3/4" plywood. 1/2" is not strong enough for proper support. You could use 2 layers of 1/2" and stagger the layers.

Answer: 
I have a mobile home park and have had your problem countless times (the manufacturers originally used particle board which is ridiculous). We always use the least expensive 3/4" plywood sheathing (NOT CDX) to replace the subfloor, laying it right on top of the floor joists (which are right on top of the iron beams). HD has it as: Sheathing Plywood (Common: 23/32 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft.; Actual: 0.688 in. x Read More

Be sure to throw a level on the beams before fastening the plywood, as the beams themselves are not necessarily level and you may need to shim some of them. We fill in any knots and lay flooring right on top of the sheathing. For ultimate smoothness, you could then lay this underlayment on top of the sheathing before installing flooring. Read Less

Answer: 
Iffy,
This sheeting is less than 1/4" thick, it could be used as your sub-flooring provided it was being added to a solid sub-flooring. It is not strong enough to span 16" centers on its on. My recommendation would be 1/2" plywood. I hope this helps.

Answer: 
It is not mahogany. It it natural birch and poplar mix. Top layer is natural birch, center is poplar, and bottom layer is natural birch.
This is a great product to work with. Only 1/4 in thick but very strong, cuts well, holds nails screws or staples well, and takes paint or stain. This product looks amazing when stained!!

Answer: 
Yes, you can,, but really, it's much cheaper and faster using pneumatic staples to put this in. 18 gauge 1 1/2-inch long narrow crown staples (1/4 inch) are the most common way this is stapled over a subfloor.

Answer: 
Yamse3502,
Yes you can use drywall screws. I would use the smallest available, I believe that's the 1 5/8". This material is less than 1/4" in thickness. Depending on your finished application you may want to use a dimpler so the heads are below the surface. I, personally used a pneumatic finish nailer with 18 gauge - 1 1/2" nails.
Best of success on your project.

Answer: 
Yes. It depends on where you intend to install it. If you are after a nice finish appearance the answer is no. Small narrow crown staples would be better because they will blend with the wood. I tried using drywall screws at first and it did not look good. So I switched to 1 1/4" staples and was very pleased with the results.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great material to work with. I used this as the back paneling for a wainscoting installation for a nursery project. The wood was easy to work with and was ready for a coat of primer/paint. The finished product looks amazing! I would definitely recommend to anyone needing a multi-use piece of underlayment. January 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very light weight and easy to cut This product worked great, very light weight and easy to cut January 28, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ok value, maybe a bit pricey for what you get. One thing to remember: this stuff is nowhere near so moisture resistant as it's made out to be. It's QUITE sensitive to moisture & especially mold/mildew, which eats out the glue & unravels the layers! BE CERTAIN TO HIT EVERY SHEET, BOTH SIDES WITH THOMPSONS OR OTHER SUITABLE SEALANT IF YOU PLAN ON STORING IT OUTDOORS AND/OR BUILDING A SHED OR OTHER OUTDOOR STRUCTURE WITH IT. Pre-treat regularly every few years with a quality sealant & it'll last a good long time. Fail & you'll have a large pile of plywood lasagne. Sheets are fairly attractive & would make excellent skins for cracked, weather-beaten, or punched in doors. Also for recovering tables cupboards, etc. as for recommending this product - yes, but in a very mediocre & lukewarm manner. Price needs to drop & quality needs improving. August 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A splendid product with many uses I use these for ceiling panels. My house, which I built myself, doubles as an art studio, and the ceilings run in three high parallel barrel vaults. The insulation lies on rigid foam, which lies on cross ties, and the barrel vaulting is shaped by using two by fours on top of, and perpendicular to, the crossties. It's simple, light in weight, and attractive, and I wanted the ceiling to be light and the panels to be easily removable for access to the insulation and the underside of the roof. The painted panels simply slide in,without nails or screws to hold them, above polyurethaned one by two furring strips that are screwed to polyurethaned crossties. The panels don't warp or sag and are strong enough to easily support half inch sound board. Each of these panels is flat. However, I know now that I could have designed the ceiling with long curves, as these panels are just flexible enough for that. In places the panels are stained with a golden teak stain and the effect is beautiful. As strong as the panels are, their weight is such that a quite large ceiling, whether curved or flat, is possible, and one person can do it all, even up high. I also use this material in the kitchen, where they have a gloss polyurethane finish, and my large paintings are in cabinets that have these panels as a back. The surface of these panels, straight from Home Depot, is of such high quality that I easily get a tight seal whereever it's needed. Use a fine toothed plywood blade and you'll get precision cuts. Finsih nails or small screws are perfect for holding where you need that. I will continue to buy these and store them until the price goes up. . August 11, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Used this material to install. The wife and I installed this on our dining room and wash room ceiling, replacing ceiling tile that kept coming loose. Easy to install and looks absolutely great. Thinking about doing our bedroom walls with it. December 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Did a fine job. The floor is very nice now. So much more cushioned with the wood underlayment. And the price was certainly reasonable. January 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good product It was relatively cheap and is smooth to touch and it was easy to handle while installing by myself in a garage December 18, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Cheap Plywood For the price- it's exactly what you expect- very thin, very cheap plywood. I bought it to create a "kitty area" to easily clean. My cat slips on the surface, but I get splinters when I sit down. It took awhile for the smell of the plywood to dissipate and it does not lay flat- unless I put a heavy litter box on the plywood and other items on all the corners. April 29, 2014
