How to Select the Right Kind of Plywood

When it comes to choosing a construction material for renovation or new projects of building homes and offices, the most common choice that everyone goes for is plywood. While plywood is the perfect material to go for, it is important that you choose the right kind. Plywood comes in a lot of variations and multiple grades. The type of plywood you should choose will depend on your area of application. Plus, when you shop for plywood online, you need to be extra careful.

Here are some of the basic tips that you can use to make an informed decision:


Study your area of application deeply

Plywood comes in a lot of variations and grade. Each of these grades is meant to serve different kinds of applications. For example, the MR grade plywood works best for areas that are prone to excess moisture like patio furniture or doors. Also, the Firewall plywood from CenturyPly is meant for kitchen use or areas that are susceptible to fire incidents. In order to choose the right kind of plywood, you need to understand your area of the application first.

Check the ISI mark

For heavy-duty usage, you must opt for quality plywood. Locally manufactured plywood isn’t strong enough to withstand heavy daily impacts when used for high-end projects like furniture making, kitchen countertops, tabletops etc. Quality plywood will always bear an ISI mark, which must be double-checked by you as a buyer.

Check the wholesalers’ reviews

Firstly, you must only go for a wholesaler when buying plywood when looking through plywood companies in India. Also, when buying plywood, you must crosscheck the sellers’ reviews and verify the same via a trusted source.

Verify the prices

Online sellers may charge you higher for plywood. It is important to be well-informed about the same before selecting plywood. In India, plywood sheet prices are quite affordable as they are manufactured using an economically feasible process.

So, these are some of the rules that you must abide by in order to select the right kind of plywood for your residential or commercial applications.
