Since 1963 when it was introduced, Oriented Strand Board has been used as a viable alternative to Plywood. It is most suitable for load-bearing functions during construction. OSB is an engineered wood that contains wood strands held together by adhesives. During mixing, the strands are laid out in a particular orientation. The waterproof resin that is used for the bonding gives the material a durability that makes it ideal for high-quality constructions. It can withstand a significant amount of stress. We have an extensive range of OSB board selections for all kind projects.
Versatile Building MaterialOSB board has gained a larger market share than plywood over the years, which is why the material comes in various styles. Your requirements will determine which OSB sheets to get. Commonly, builders opt to use OSB as sheathing in walls, roof decking and as subfloors. The pliable wood can also be used in making furniture. One huge advantage you gain is the consistency of the timber due to the high-pressure bonding of the wood chips and resin. This property means you do have to worry about knots in the sheets.
