Plywood & Panels in Winnipeg


Plywood has a wide variety of applications, from constructing cabinets to furniture. It’s moisture, humidity, and impact-resistant, making it one of the sturdiest building materials around. 

To create plywood, layers of veneer are glued together in alternating directions. It can be made with an MDF core, particleboard core, or veneer core. Our inventory includes the following plywood & panel products:



Oriented strand board panels are created by pressing wood strands, resins, and wax using high pressure. OSB is commonly used as a sheathing material for houses.

Treated Plywood

Green-treated plywood is pressure treated and loaded with preservatives; it’s highly durable and resistant to decay.

Is MDF stronger than plywood?

While MDF is more affordable, it’s also a bit softer than plywood. If strength is your main priority, stick to plywood. 


Can you drill into the edge of plywood?

Nails will not hold in a thin piece of plywood; there’s not enough material for the screws to grab onto. Try to avoid drilling into the edges of plywood whenever possible.  


Can you use plywood for interior walls?

You can. Try using plywood instead of drywall for a more lightweight and impact-resistant build. 


What type of plywood is strongest?

Marine-grade plywood is known as the most durable plywood you can get.


Is OSB as good as plywood?

While these types of wood are very similar, plywood wins out in terms of strength and moisture resistance.
