Can I use this for the outside walls for my shed?

Asked by pat June 4, 2017
8
Answers

Plywood to be used on exterior or in high humidity environments must be constructed with exterior adhesives. While the wood itself will withstand moisture and high humidity the adhesive will not and cause the plies to separate. Use an exterior grade plywood or sheathing and apply a good exterior paint.

Can you use this as wall paneling for a dining room/kitchen? Can it be painted?

Asked by CG March 16, 2019

Look online for DIY instructions on how to create a beautiful shiplap fact using this underlayment on the walls. The recommendation is to paint the wall the same color. And to use nickels as spacers. The store should help you with the cutting which will make this job much easier and faster. Cut into 12 “ widths. It would make for a very current decorating affect in a dining room. But I wouldn’t want to use it on every wall. Shiplap can be over done.

Can I use this underpayment to lay tile on?

Asked by Rooky September 8, 2018

Answers

I searched the internet wondering the same thing. I found a YouTube video by a master installer that shows that yes, you CAN use it as underlayment for tile. You DO however have to properly prep the plywood before use though. Basically, you'll be making a sort of "poor man's" backer board that will work just well and is much cheaper than the actual thing.

you can use it to cover your drywall and put up wallpaper, but it will be some work for table this to the wall studs. Then apply some kind of primer before you put wallpaper on it. Ask your local home depot for type of primer.

I'm sure it's great for the intended purpose . I use it for drawer bottoms and the back of small storage chests so it would be nice if the outer layers were a bit thicker . It still works good just don't sand it very much .

I do like this stuff - though I've never used it for underlayment. I've used it for floating panels in fairly fine cabinetry, because it's inexpensive and there's often interesting figure - just don't do more than barely sand it - the top veneer is thin and the glue is often red!I also use it to make lightweight wooden storage bins to go on shelves, with 1x2s and 3/4" flat-head screws.

Underlayment (Common: 7/32 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft.; Actual: 0.196 in. x 48 in. x 96 in.) We used this underlayment for a new floor in our foyer. We replaced some pretty hefty tile with laminate flooring, thus needing a new solid/flat floor to attach it to. It is lightweight, but very strong and smooth, easy to cut and nail. It was used on an area approximately 8 X 14. Also reasonably priced. We have used this same product for numerous projects in our home and will continue to.

I did not use this for my floor, this is now my ceiling in my living area and I absolutely love it. I chose not to paint it, leaving in its natural state. It goes will with my walls, an unique solution to a weight limit for me. Again, it is so amazing, be happy to share pictures of how it turned out.

There are two types of underlament I see under this sku at Home Depot... this one has a pinkish hue to the finished side, the other is a more natural-looking wood tone. Which one you're going to find depends on what was in the most recent shipment. Prices are equivalent. Not as much of a fan of the pink stuff as I am of it's more lightweight and less flexible counterpart, but it gets the job done. (I should note however that the range of applications for which I use this material is very narrow and highly specialized. Most consumers will be perfectly satisfied with either variety.)

BEWARE -must be screwed down every 4” on inner area, 2” around edge!
BEWARE -must be screwed down every 4” on inner area, 2” around edge. There were no installation instructions by the point of purchase, as some reviewers described. If i had known this i would NEVER have bought this. It took me 3 hours to Screw down half a sheet. (Screws would not sink correctly) I had to go buy a compressor and narrow crown stapler to complete the installation. A thicker plywood would have been easier to install. Less fasteners!
