What are OSB Boards
Oriented Strand Board – OSB, sometimes referred to as: just OSB, OSB Panels, OSB Sheathing, OSB Sheets, and OSB Plywood, is an engineered wood-based structural product, like particleboard, primarily used in the construction industry. Because of its inherent load-bearing properties and dimensional stability, these structural panels are commonly used as wall sheathing, floors, siding, and decking for roofs.
Different Types of Plywood and Their Uses
Plywood sheets are a man-made material manufactured by bonding three or more (always an odd number) layers (plies) of wood together to form a panel. Each layer’s grain is at 90 degrees to its neighbor before being glued, which helps prevent warping, shrinking, or expanding, giving the sheet its strength, and stability.
