How Much Does Plywood Cost?

Plywood is manufactured from the thin layers of wood veneer that is glued together.  This engineered wood is medium in density and reduces the tendency to split when nailed at its edges.  It can also help reduce expansion and shrinkage, offering better stability when compared to other materials.
